Our Story

Boa: Premium Handmade Jewelry

THE POWER OF BOA MOMENTS

At Boa we love jewelry in all shapes and in all ‘blings of life’. We like to let our jewelry be our boa for the day. Let it lift us up, give us confidence and make us shine no matter what the day brings! But we also want to give back and lend a hand. It is part of who we are as a person, how we raise out children and who we want to be as a business. 

 

OUR COMMITMENT TO FAIR TRADE

We are committed to Fair Trade, a growing global movement to help low-income artisans in developing countries move towards economic self-sufficiency. We offer pieces directly from our Fair Trade partner A Beautiful Story. They work together with artisans in Nepal and India to design and create beautiful collectionsYour purchase of these beautiful pieces has a direct positive impact on the life of the artisans. It is a long-awaited alternative to traditional trade and a way to effect real social change! Truly a way of making the world a better place. 

 

OUR COMMITMENT TO DONATE 20% OF OUR PROFIT TO CHARITY

We are also committed to donate 20% of our profits on the Cecilia Jewel collections to an organization called POTS. Similar as Fair Trade organizations POTS' mission is to help low-income individuals and families move from crisis to stability, and ultimately self-sufficiency.  POTS is located in the Bronx, NY and Cecilia and her children can be found there most Wednesday evenings helping prepare a healthy dinner for 50 to 70 people.

 

OUR COMMITMENT TO PREMIUM HANDMADE 

We are committed to premium handmade jewelry. We believe jewelry should be made by hand to pass on the true beauty and love that was put into the design and crafting of the piece. All pieces in our store are high quality and handmade by our own magnificent artist Cecilia Jewel or our artisans in Nepal.
