Chris Correia is the founder and matriarch of her namesake collection, and her worldliness has been the inspiration behind the creations since its establishment. Her interest in jewelry began at the age of 16, when she inherited her uncle's jewelling tools and began experimenting. Instantly intrigued and talented, Chris devoted time and energy to the mastery of this craft.
Chris initially studied at the Rhode Island School of Design where she truly began her career. Afterwards, she proceeded to the Gemological Institute of America where she earned graduate gemologist certificates in both diamonds and colored gems. Seeking further expansion in her studies, Chris then traveled the world. She attended Sir Johns Cass College of Art in London and later studied in Pforzhiem, Germany for two years. Afterwards, Chris used her newfound knowledge and retuned to New York as a changed woman.
In 1984, the Chris Correia Collection was born. More than 30 years later, the collection still delights and thrills customers. With Chris’ talent and determination, her Collection has proven to be a staple in the jewelry industry, with its roots deeply immersed in international concepts.
