Cristy Cali makes no secret of her New Orleans influence when designing her jewelry. Fleur de lis, pelicans, voo doo dolls, and magnolias - they are all tastefully cast sparkling sterling and infused with a certain class and spirit distinct to Cali's style. Sine she started her business in 2012, Cali has grown a worldwide customer base, which notably includes Senator Mary Landrieu and members of Aerosmith. Today, her line can be found in dozens of stores across Louisiana and beyond - including one of New Orleans' most iconic jewelry institutions, Adler's.
Cali has the entrepreneurial spirit running through her veins.
As a young child, she watched her parents achieved success after immigrating from Guatemala to New Orleans in the 1980s. In only a few years, what started as a collection of jewelry and handcrafted Guatemalan goods on a table in the French Market turned into to brick-and-mortar stores.
