August Moon Co. originated as a handmade gemstone jewelry brand, founded in 2017 by me, Kristina. My designs are delicate but made to last, using 14k Gold-Filled Chain + Hardware and real Gemstones. Each piece is created with care + spiritual intention, and is hand-crafted in Philadelphia, PA.
In the Summer of 2021, I was presented with an opportunity to open a Brick and Mortar boutique in Philadelphia - a lifelong dream of mine. After working in the fashion industry for years - both at corporate & small business levels - I decided to take the leap, leave my 9-5 job, and put my full energy and heart into my own business. August Moon Co. evolved to become a full women's clothing boutique, in addition to my in-house jewelry line.
The vision behind the boutique is to carry brands that match my own values - small batch, women or minority owned, domestic or sustainable production, charitable, or socially aware. While not every brand can check each box, I feel I've curated a special selection of brands and products that reflect at least one of our core values. Supporting other small businesses is one of my top priorities!
✧ I am acutely aware of the environmental and ethical dilemmas the fashion industry is known to present, and will continue to work on discovering more brands in the industry that offer more transparency in their supply chain. ✧ Progress not perfection ✧
