CY COLLECTION-Luxurious jewelry without the luxury price tag

$11,865

We are Cy Collection - a sophisticated new line of fine fashion jewelry, crafted from the finest materials and sold for a price significantly lower than retail stores. We design polished jewelry for the modern woman-on-the-go. Our pieces are timeless, luxurious, wearable, and- believe it or not - they are also affordable.

Cy Collection was born out of our frustration at our inability to find high-quality jewelry for an accessible price.   We thought that there had to be a better option - that we shouldn't have to to choose between quality and accessibility. 

We talked directly to manufacturers and discovered that retail brands mark up their jewelry 10-20 times. This is to cover an expensive distribution model, pricy retail store overhead, high marketing costs and bloated brand inflation. So, the price we pay as consumers is mostly to cover expensive overhead and mark-up instead of paying for a quality product.  

We decided that this way of doing business is out of style. So, we cut out the middleman, slashed our internal costs, and sell directly to you without the insane mark-upsBecause of our low overhead, we can afford to make a higher quality of jewelry than most retail stores offer, and still sell it for a fraction of the price. This is our vision. Our passion. Our mission. This is Cy Collection.

Have you ever bought an expensive piece of gold-plated jewelry, only to have it discolor or chip within a few months, or even a few weeks? This is because most jewelry companies use a process called flash electroplating, where a microscopic layer of gold is chemically plated on top of another metal. The gold is so thin, that it's really no surprise that most plated jewelry doesn't last. 

Cy Collection jewelry is plated with two layers of gold, using advanced techniques that can last up to eight times longer than flash-electroplating. This double-plating technique is used by the most expensive jewelry brands, whose jewelry typically costs a few hundred to upwards of a thousand dollars. We work directly with the same manufacturers and materials as these brands, to bring you the same quality of jewelry for an affordable price.

We don't want to brag, but we think it looks pretty darn good! We will let you be the judge of that. However, we do want to point out a couple of key things:

+  All of our jewelry is made from the highest quality materials, like 14K gold over brass.

+  Our jewelry is double plated with multiple plating techniques to last longer than traditionally plated jewelry.

**To make all gold-plated jewelry last longer, please follow the care instructions we will send with your jewelry.

+  Our jewelry is certified nickel-free. 

+  Our jewelry is designed with an elegant, timeless aesthetic that will fit with any look, and will never go out of style. 

+  Our jewelry is made to enhance -not dictate- your style. Each piece can be worn in a multitude of ways...so mix, match and stack it up however you like. 

+  Our jewelry is designed to fit a variety of sizes with adjustable chains and flexible materials that can be bent gently for a customized fit. 

+  Our polished pieces can be dressed up or down, so they can go from work to play, and day to night.

+  All of our jewelry comes in our luxury Cy Collection boxes - perfect for a beautiful gift, or to display on your dresser.

 **Once the campaign is over, we will contact you to select your choice.

We have created and fine-tuned our samples and packaging, and our manufacturers are ready to go. But to keep prices as low as possible, each piece most be ordered in a high quantity, and that takes a lot of cash. We are on Kickstarter to raise funds for this first run. But, equally important, we are here to build awareness of the current bloated state of the jewelry industry. We want you to know that you don't have to settle for low-quality jewelry or pay insane prices for high-quality. We all deserve to own beautiful jewelry and pay an honest price for it. We are ready to change the industry... but we need your help to get started. 

PLEASE HELP US BY BACKING OUR PROJECT AND SHARING WITH YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY AND ANYONE YOU KNOW WHO WOULD LIKE BEAUTIFUL JEWELRY FOR A FAIR PRICE. 

WE ARE SO GRATEFUL FOR YOUR SUPPORT! 

THANK YOU!!

-Courtney and Yuriko

 

 

 

 

 

                                        

 

 

 

 

    

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

We have worked hard to anticipate potential risks and put solutions in place for them, but as with any new business, challenges can arise. One challenge would come if we receive an extremely large number of orders (a great problem to have, but still...). However, if this happens, we do have strategies and reinforcements ready to help get our jewelry into (and onto) your waiting hands as soon as possible. We also plan to communicate directly and often with our backers to let you know of any delays. Thanks in advance for your understanding!
