Show Notes

Crystalyn Aucoin is a jewelry designer from New Orleans and the mom of a football-loving boy named Winston.

After a decade in the jewelry industry, selling top name brands such as David Yurman, Rolex, and Mikimoto, she decided to create her own jewelry line based on a need she saw in the market for casual fine jewelry and a mission she felt was bigger than herself.  Crystalyn Aucoin Jewelry launched in October of 2018.

A jewelry line was not always part of Crystalyn's vision however, a major life-altering event changed the course of her journey and her outlook forever. 

In 2016, she became a widow when her 38-year-old husband Ryan passed away from cancer. His life, his encouraging words, and his death ultimately opened her eyes to unapologetically living her purpose. She now navigates life with a heightened sense of gratitude and purpose while encouraging others to do the same.

The mission behind Crystalyn Aucoin Jewelry is to empower women to embrace the journey of life and celebrate it with jewelry.

As a way to honor her late-husband, Crystalyn allocates a percentage of sales and in-kind donations to cancer-related non-profit organizations as well as, finds peace in helping families who are experiencing the burden of cancer.

"Choosing to merge my love for jewelry and my passion to help others has been the catalyst for, not only my healing, but my growth."-Crystalyn Aucoin
