Purposeful Purchasing

The Jeweled Warrior was born out of a desire to create an environment of purposeful purchasing and empowered connection. We feature fine jewelry made by artisans inspired by nature, and committed to protecting it through their sustainably sourced materials. Our art and decor is created by artists or ethical companies that are empowering women, protecting our planet, and raising awareness for worthy causes through their creations. Our artists' stories and unique inspirations are told through dynamic profiles showcased throughout the store. Customers can shop knowing every item in the store is made by a real artisan doing their part to empower their communities and protect nature. Each and every purchase supports women with endometriosis through our "Jeweled EndoWarrior" program where 1% of all profits are donated to research and awareness campaigns for endometriosis.

Empowered Connection

More than just a retail gallery, The Jeweled Warrior also features multiple gathering spaces. These spaces are designed to hold artisan led workshops, yin and restorative yoga classes, mindful meditations, fine jewelry trunk shows, art installations, private events, and empowering community gatherings. We will hold monthly nonprofit fundraiser meet and greet events where a portion of the retail proceeds go towards the nonprofit.

My Early Inspiration

Hi! My name is Kristin Costin. I'm a passionate collector of jewelry, art, and the stories of the artists behind them. From a young age I’ve been fascinated with unique jewelry that has a story to tell. In my youth I was fortunate enough to travel to St. John, U.S.V.I. during summers with my family. My mom lived in the Virgin Islands on a sailboat for 20 years, and this is where my parents’ love story began. I grew up hearing tales of my mom’s scuba and sailing adventures, and she influenced my deep appreciation for animals, plants, and untouched nature. It was in St. John’s vibrant shops, with talented artists inspired by the incredible beauty around them, that my love of jewelry was born. Watching my father gleefully purchase handmade jewelry pieces from our favorite local shops for my “protesting” mother established jewelry-gift-giving as a love language early on in my life.

The Jeweled Warrior was born

Jewelry was my route to connect with others by proudly telling the story of where the piece came from. It was the way I shared my passion for the unique oceanic life, rainforests, and people in St. John with others. As I grew older I realized the more I knew about the piece and who made it, the more meaningful those conversations became. I love collecting the stories of artists, and I honed this passion during my studies of Eastern Religion and Studio Arts at the University of Rochester, NY. It was here that I first learned about sustainability, and became interested in how to be an active participant in doing better for our earth. My love of jewelry and passion for protecting nature combined to spark my interest in sustainable jewelry artists around the world.

It is my hope that The Jeweled Warrior will be a gallery where people are inspired to share their stories through creative gatherings and feel empowered participating in the purposeful purchasing of sustainable jewelry and art.
