"Simplistic with a touch of contemporary and a splash of color."
La Kaiser Jewelry was founded by Swiss native Cindy Kaiser. She was born and raised in Zimbabwe and now lives the “American dream” in the windy city of Chicago.
"Life has been an adventure to say the least! My Swiss roots bring me back to Zurich often to visit family and I can’t help myself from being inspired by the picturesque village settings, lush green pastures and pristine mountain tops and lakes. I view Switzerland as my ‘design haven’. A stark contrast to life in Zimbabwe! Growing up in Zimbabwe was an enriching and humbling experience and one that changed my outlook and view on life. When you are surrounded on a daily basis by extreme poverty and suffering, your dreams and desires for a kinder world are awoken."
Ever since leaving Africa, Cindy knew that she wanted to be independent and build a lifestyle that would allow her to be creative, maintain a flexible schedule and have the freedom to spend time between Europe and Africa. She took the plunge and created her own jewelry line “La Kaiser”, designing and manufacturing her jewelry between Chicago, Jaipur and overseas. Drawing upon her colorful travels and European adventures for design inspiration, and donating to charities in Zimbabwe and the USA, such as the Anti Cruelty Society.
Thank you for sharing some of your magic with us Cindy! We can't wait to see what's next for you!
