Hi, and welcome!

        I’m Christina Russo, the founder and designer of Chic by Christina Jewelry, which is headquartered in a scenic hamlet of Central Upstate New York, surrounded by rolling (and frequently snow-covered) hills and glittering lakes.

        From the time I was young, I had the strong desire to follow my own inner sense of style, which couldn't be found in stores. As I worked with different gemstones and materials, I found myself not just creating a physical piece of jewelry, but emotions as well. 

        Another facet of Chic by Christina stems from my experiences as a critical care nurse. It started in Louisville, in the neuro ICU. Here in New York, I work in the emergency room. Both have given me a front row seat to the challenges and hardships people experience. This and other personal family experiences left me wanting to do more. I decided to give back and donate 10% of each sale to Direct Relief, who works to provide aid for victims of emergencies, as well as to help improve overall health and well-being. This organization first came to my attention during the first wave of COVID-19, when they were providing PPE to doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals in the United States and around the world fighting on the front lines against an invisible and tenacious enemy. As an ER nurse, this was a cause that was personal and real for my colleagues and I. 

        In a world that is often about trends and conformity, I seek to provide other like-minded women with the opportunity to step out, be different, and define themselves. Our jewelry allows you to express who you are, no matter where you go.​ All of our products are infused with exclusivity and passion, utilizing the highest quality materials. Handmade in the USA to make you feel distinct, beautiful, confident and what makes you, you. When you wear Chic by Christina jewelry you can look good and feel good knowing you have made a difference and have a custom piece of jewelry no one else in the world has. Let us help you share YOU without saying a word!
