Kris Marie Harvey was raised in the North East, setting the stage for her everlasting love of the natural world, spirituality, and all forms of design from ancient cultures to modern architecture. Her curiosity in the arts led her to pursue jewelry from her first class at age 15 to a degree in the Art and Design. After being immersed in the jewelry industry, Kris decided to pursue her lifelong dream she had since that very first jewelry class.
This dream was formed in 2017, as Kris Averi was created. It is here that Kris continues to weave these elements of inspiration into both her collections and bespoke pieces, staying true to her vision, design ethos, and craftsmanship. Kris is passionate about creating exclusive uniquely elegant and timelessly eternal jewelry while being inclusive to all, as love is equal.
The name, Averi is taken as a variation of her last name stemming from English origin meaning elf king or elf wisdom.
Since then, she has been featured in British Vogue, created heirloom creations for clients, and worn by celebrities.
As a passionate supporter and member of the LGBTQ+ community, she believes love transcends gender, identity, race, and culture.
This is her stand for love.
