Pride Month Jewelry Collection from KIL N.Y.C

As a gemologist and jewelry publicist, I am thrilled to introduce you to a truly extraordinary brand that embodies the essence of LGBTQ pride and creativity: KIL N.Y.C.

KIL N.Y.C. is an avant-garde jewelry brand that celebrates self-expression, inclusivity, and diversity within the LGBTQ community. With their latest looks, KIL N.Y.C. has crafted a range of captivating pieces that radiate the vibrant spirit of Pride Month.

Every KIL N.Y.C. design is crafted with a fusion of artistic vision and meticulous attention to detail. Pieces showcase a harmonious blend of lustrous gemstones, precious metals, and contemporary elements, resulting in wearable works of art that transcend conventional jewelry norms.

Allow me to entice you with a preview of some select pieces from KIL N.Y.C.’s Pride Month selection:

1. Cupid’s Arrows Pendant: This has a witch’s heart motif, an old Scottish symbol for protection. It uses reclaimed metal, and the piece is cast in NYC. Each of the blood drops is garnet briolettes, with hand-cut gemstones, and 10% of the proceeds from each Cupid’s Arrows pendant is donated to the Joyful Heart Foundation (https://www.joyfulheartfoundation.org/), which envisions a world free of sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse.

2. Dentata Ring and Pendant: A ring and pendant inspired by a spiked Venetian chastity belt made for women who were thought to have “Vagina Dentata”, a myth telling of women with teeth in their vagina with the implication that having intercourse would result in injuries or potentially castration. This folk tale is pervasive within popular culture and has become a feminist symbol of sorts. KIL N.Y.C. wanted to create an empowering, yet fashionable ring and we believe we succeeded. 10% of all sales will be donated to Her Justice, an organization dedicated to helping women living in poverty in New York City by recruiting and mentoring volunteer lawyers to provide free legal help to address individual and systemic legal barriers. herjustice.org

3. Cranium Rings: A manifestation of luck, biker rings are traditionally worn to drive death away, for those who choose to live on the wild side. Some believe these rings bring luck on the road, while others believe they symbolize salvation. Wearing a skull is not only reminiscent of memento mori, but of immortality, and therefore life. Inspired by superstitious biker rings, this ring features a hand-carved skull sitting in a wide tapered band accompanied by pyramid-cut-colored gemstones, set face up in a bezel setting.10% of each sale will be donated to The Mutter Museum in Philadelphia, PA to help further their mission to advance the cause of health while upholding the ideals and heritage of medicine. collegeofphysicians.org

4. Kelly Sword Earrings and Pendant: The sword pendant and earrings show the warrior in each of us. Dedicated to Konstantinos’ friend and social activist, Kate Kelly. 10% of each sale before tax will be donated to Equality Now, a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting for gender equality worldwide. www.equalitynow.org.

5. Agape Pendant: The evil eye and the witch’s heart are symbols of protection. Two arrows pierce the heart and a banner span across them. KIL N.Y.C. is happy to offer customization of this pendant. A few letters can be engraved into the banner or KIL N.Y.C. can set stones in one’s choice to spell out an acrostic message. 10% of proceeds from the sale of this pendant will be donated to Equality Now, an organization dedicated to promoting gender equality worldwide. www.equalitynow.org

6. Sacred Pendant and Ring: Inspired by ex-votos/sacred hearts that represent Jesus’ love, but with a modern twist. This version represents an undying love for something or someone, with the signature KIL NYC eye added for projection against bad juju.

At KIL N.Y.C., every piece is meticulously created by LGBTQ designer Konstantinos Leoussis, whose passion for self-expression and authenticity resonates through each design. His commitment to promoting diversity and celebrating the LGBTQ community shines through in every meticulously crafted piece.
