The story of Tarin Thomas begins on the lively streets of New York City in 2013. After moving to NYC from Toronto to study Fashion Marketing and Merchandising at Parsons, Founder Kylie Nakao found inspiration for her jewelry designs in the delicate urban details of the city she now called home. Her background as a buyer for a locally-focused specialty store provided her the insight and encouragement to pivot her ideas from loose sketches into a full collection of sophisticated yet functional jewelry. Her first collection, The Stackable Collection, offered an accessible line of dainty everyday earrings and rings that communicated the Tarin Thomas vision clearly: Jewelry that is functional, elegant, and timeless, just like the city it's made in.
Tarin Thomas continues to innovate new collections and explore new styles, like the dreamy, unisex ‘Flat Top Collection’ inspired by land and sea, or the gorgeous Malachite and White Mother of Pearl checkerboard pieces in the ‘Lucky You’ Collection. All Tarin Thomas pieces are proudly handcrafted in New York City and produced from premium quality metals and precious and semi-precious stones.
Tarin Thomas also offers custom collaborations for clients seeking one-of-a-kind special pieces and settings, allowing everyone to create their own designs and story.
