Chic by Christina is the creation of Christina Russo, a Rhode Island native and now New York ER nurse with a passion for creating vibrant, handmade bracelets and necklaces that traverse the color spectrum and overflow with character as unique as each individual wearer.
As a nurse, Christina has a front-row seat to the challenges, joys, and heartbreaks of others, an appreciation of each day, and a desire to help in whatever way she can. The challenges faced by her patients became personal for Christina in 2016, when her dad was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia. It was because of this that Christina found the purpose for her jewelry. 10% of each sale of a Chic by Christina bracelet or necklace will be donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Her creations utilize a variety of gemstones, that are often augmented by an array of sterling silver or 14-carat gold-plated charms. This allows the wearer to have an accessory to match the vibe of any occasion.
Through her jewelry brand, Christina has been able to combine her lifelong love of fashion and creativity with her compassionate desire to help others. Each member of the Chic by Christina community joins her in this mission, and can be proud that they are likewise helping to serve a greater good while accentuating their style with stunning accessories that represent their own personality and uniqueness.
Chic by Christina bracelets and necklaces are designed to tell YOUR story through your personal connection to colors, stones, and pendants. Wear an empowering design as unique as you. Your story. Your purpose. Wear you.
