Cristy Cali

People to Watch Class of 2014


CEO & Jewelry Designer, Cristy’s Collection, Inc.

In the past few years Cristy Cali’s jewelry pieces have become popular with famous names, including Sen. Mary Landrieu and the rock band Aerosmith.

She is most excited, however about recently catching the eye of another big name.  

“My biggest accomplishment has been capturing the attention of one of the most well-known and successful jewelry businesses in New Orleans – Adler’s,” Cali says. “They understand who I am, what my goals are and they believe in my vision. They have helped me reach an audience larger than I imagined.”

A New Orleans native, Cristi Cali began contributing designs to her mother’s jewelry business, Sterling Silvia, when she was just 16 years old.

Following her graduation from Loyola University’s School of Business in 2012, she formed her own company, creating jewelry inspired by the rich history, architecture and culture of her native city.

“Jewelry has sentimental value, and when people tell their story and how my jewelry means something to them, it creates an indescribable feeling of happiness and gratitude. That is why I do what I do.”
