A new designer has arrived in the District. LA KAISER mixes metals, textures, and colors to make unique, chic results that I’m head over heels for.
“Designed in Zurich. Hand-crafted in the USA. Helping Africa.” is the tagline for the brand. I kind of love that.
Plus, it’s fitting, as the designer and namesake of the line, Cindy Kaiser, is a unique, international woman. Her passions led her to create and design LA KAISER, and she stayed true to her roots in the line’s inspiration and business model.
Kaiser, a beautiful Swiss blonde, was raised in Zimbabwe, where she experienced the rich, diverse sub-Saharan culture before pursuing a degree in art and design in Cape Town, South Africa. Now a resident of the Washington area, Kaiser makes her jewelry in America in order to ensure its hand-crafted and meets high-quality standards. And, in a nod to her youth, she donates a portion of the proceeds from her jewelry line to a scholarship foundation in Zimbabwe.
LA KAISER jewelry is unique, but not too strange. It’s the type of jewelry that stands out enough to receive compliments at a cocktail parties but is classic enough to wear for years to come. The pieces are luxurious yet reasonably priced—and their rarity makes the baubles worth the investment, at least in my book.
The python vermeil earrings, which come in several colors and metals, are stunning and a great buy. I have a pair of the textured teal python in 14K gold, and I love wearing them with a topknot in my hair and a variety of ensembles.
Here are the beautiful baubles that caught this Bitch’s eye—statement studs and bangin’ bangles to wear this season and the next.
