It all started in 2002, when Christina Young, founder of Stia Jewelry, began her fashion journey. Young designed, made, and sold handbags in high school where the Stia name, her nickname, was first used. Her love for fashion did not end there; Young continued her education at the Fashion Institute of Technology and went on to work as a merchandising manager in the New York City undergarment industry. In 2012, with her first newborn son at home, Young decided to part ways with her growing New York City fashion career. In 2013, a new Stia, now a jewelry brand, was created. 

Today, nationally recognized, the Stia brand is geared toward empowering women to pursue their passions and build their own businesses. Stia Jewelry offers something for every day, every age, and every budget.
