Kristin Cavallari - Uncommon James
Reality TV personality Kristin Cavallari launched her jewelry brand Uncommon James in 2017 so she could be her own boss and give women of all ages everywhere an affordable way to accessorize and stay on-trend. Every Uncommon James collection is created to be timeless, effortless, and sophisticated, while always keeping the modern women’s wants and needs in mind. Accessory options range from earrings, necklaces, rings and bracelets.
Cavallari makes sure her jewelry is always made with the highest end metals and gemstones, so you won’t have to worry about compromising price for the quality. A woman on the go is always looking for the best value accessories that can last, so Uncommon James makes sure to add and adjust their pieces specifically for busy and constantly changing schedules and lifestyles. Recently, the brand released its first-ever Demi-Fine Collection that features a sterling silver plated 14k gold addition and ethically sourced round cut diamonds that will last a lifetime. UJ prides itself on offering small ways for their customers to “treat themselves,” and adding this extra hint of luxury is the perfect way to do that.
Looking for a more personalized piece? UJ has you covered. Personalization options can be found on their website or at one of their two retail locations in Nashville and Chicago. The Sur and Initial Necklaces both offer the option to get letters plated onto silver, gold, or rose gold 14k brass pendants. The site also offers an entire Zodiac Collection that allows shoppers to celebrate their sun, moon, and rising signs. These necklaces have a textured coin pendant decorated with a celestial star design that can be worn either alone or with additional zodiac charms attached.
If you want to customize beyond your initials or zodiac sign, UJ has an entire Charm Bar to mix, match, and create a statement piece of your own. The bar features a variety of numbers, shapes, and symbols that can be added to any necklace or smaller hoop style but are most commonly paired with the ‘spellbound huggies’ and the ‘charmer’ and ‘on the ball’ necklaces because of their simple shape and the easy-to-layer space they have.
Adding onto her list of collections, Cavallari just released her Fall 2020 line with a new assortment of pieces that have a fresh spin on some of UJ’s go-to originals. This collection introduced the brand’s first-ever single stud earring sets, with duos including symbols like hearts, an archer, or a wishbone for good luck. If you want to update your Holiday wardrobe, the black enamel collection is sure to bring you some seasonal edginess with darker colors, tones, and details.
Throughout the years, Cavallari has been inspired by her life experiences, travels, and exposure to fashion from around the world, specifically embracing her Italian roots. Family and home life come first for Kristin, so extending her product assortments into homeware and children’s clothing came as no surprise. Kristin explains that she “wanted to do something where I can first and foremost still be a mom,” but was also something she was passionate about. Thus, UJ Home and Little James were born!
Notable worldwide retail partnerships and a corresponding television show that has catapulted the company into the international spotlight has allowed the brand to rapidly become a “go-to” staple for the modern woman. By bringing romance to life with her designs, Kristin also aims to bring the same romantic and trend-driven energy into the life of others when they purchase from her. With collections that are plain and simple “just easy,” as Kristin says time and time again, you’re bound to find the perfect go-to statement piece for a family member, friend, or even yourself that will last for years to come.
