Designed for resilience. Cherished for lifetimes.
Each creation invokes the resiliency of the wearer and is cherished and celebrated for lifetimes.
Kris Marie Harvey was raised in the Northeast, setting the stage for her everlasting love of the natural world, spirituality, and all forms of design. Her artistic curiosity led her from her first jewelry class (at age 15) into a degree in Art and Design. After immersing herself in the industry, Kris decided to pursue a dream that began in that first class: to establish an independent jewelry brand.
Kris Averi was founded in 2017, originally under the name “Aetheria Jewel”. Through the brand, Kris weaves her many forms of inspiration into both her collections and bespoke pieces, staying true to her vision, design ethos, and craftsmanship. Since founding Kris Averi, she has created fashion collections and heirloom creations for clients, been featured in British Vogue, New York Times, and been worn by celebrities.
Kris is passionate about creating exclusive, uniquely elegant, and timeless jewelry while being inclusive to all forms of love. As a passionate supporter and member of the LGBTQ+ community, Kris believes love transcends gender, identity, race, and culture.
This is her stand for love.
Amor Vincit Omnia - Love Conquers All
I live in awareness and intention. I am open-hearted, creative, and courageous. I create unique beautiful jewelry, art, and authentic experiences for people, in expressing their love, and themselves. I do this with integrity, imagination, compassion, joy, passion, confidence, peace, and love.
The Design Process
Nature Through Fine Design
We believe meaning can be found in everyday moments (in addition to the usual causes for celebration). Inspiration can be drawn from anywhere: nature, mythology, spirituality, ancient cultures, magic, classic art masterpieces, or modern architecture. Our designs echo the beauty of the natural world, draw upon timeless symbolism of everlasting love, and distill meaning that is unique to you.
At Kris Averi, each piece is intended to inspire memories and myths of your very own. Together, we’ll leverage the unique properties of metals and gemstones to create innovative jewelry that is a part of your very own story.
All designs are crafted with recycled gold, ethically sourced materials, and high standards of quality control. Each piece is made with love in her own private studio and the heart of NYC’s Diamond District. We work with family-owned and-operated businesses, including casting companies, diamond and gemstone vendors, and stone setters.
Each creation is made with intention. We draw from the natural alchemy of materials while treasuring the passion of fine design and jewelry craftsmanship.
“There is no better Designer than Nature.”
