Charlene K was founded 2005 in Beverly Hills by Teong Kay and his wife Gigi. The jewelry was created to appeal to every woman's desire for self expression through wearing beautiful, timeless pieces. Chic, sophisticated, luxurious and trend driven, our pieces are perfect for any occasion. This is part of the natural essence of our brand’s identity. The collection consists of 14 kt gold filled, vermeil, and sterling silver combined with rare gems. The jewelry collection is named after Teong and Gigi's daughter Charlene.
Teong Kay moved to the US after graduating with a business degree. The transition to the US was difficult, arriving in the US with only thirty-five dollars in his pocket. He took entry level positions in garment factories to learn the business. Teong Kay used his business degree to express his love for fashion and design by opening several boutiques. He created two successful dress collections called Pave and St. Romei. His dress collections were sold at many exclusive boutiques as well as fine department stores including Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Ave, Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman. Teong has fostered a passion for fine jewelry and believes a woman’s look is not complete until she is accessorized with jewelry. After years of planning he decided to follow his passion and launch Charlene K jewelry collection.
A favorite among celebrity icons, Charlene K jewelry has been spotted on many of the most fashionable women in the world including Eva Longoria, Carrie Underwood, Angela Bassett, Tyra Banks, Hillary Duff, Ha ji Won, Audrina Patridge, Emanuelle Chriqui, Kyle Richards and Taylor Armstrong. Charlene K has been featured in top magazines including Instyle, Lucky, Life & Style, People, Star, Women’s Wear Daily, California Apparel News, and the OC Register. Charlene K jewelry has been seen on TV programs such as E! Channel, Extra and The Oprah Network.
Today, the Charlene K collection has become a key vendor to high end stores all across the United States including Fred Segal, Madison, Flaunt and Stacey Rhodes Boutique. The line is sold internationally throughout Canada, Dubai, London, China, Korea, Japan, Puerto Rico, Saudi Arabia and Europe. Whether it be a gift from a loved one or a gift for herself, an investment in a Charlene K design enriches a woman’s day and life.
