Our Story

  Hello! And thank you for shopping with us. Here’s a little information to get to know more about the faces behind CARIISSIMA. 

 I am Gio, a 20 year old Junior in college. I created CARIISSIMA in August 2019 in hopes of showcasing my personality throughout all of our accessories. Since I was little, I have always loved any and every accessory from earrings, to bracelets, necklaces and rings. I had ideas of accessories I wanted for special events, school dances, birthdays, however finding them was always an issue. I wanted statement pieces, earrings of every color, jewelry you wouldn’t find on a shopping trip to the mall...CARIISSIMA was made to bring these accessories I wanted so badly, to you! As my brand got bigger and more orders were coming through, I had to ask for help from non-other than my mom, Pierina. Together, we are the mother-daughter duo behind CARIISSIMA. 

What does “CARIISSIMA” mean? 

Carissima, is the Italian word for “dearest”. I spent Summer 2018 in my grandfather’s hometown in Italy. Whenever I was around family, I would hear the word “carissima” quite often, such as “Ciao carissima” (Hello dearest). I have loved the word ever since and the way it made me feel. I knew I wanted to name my brand Cariissima, to make our clients feel beautiful and empowered.
