BYCHARI is more than a jewelry line –– it’s a way for women to share and create their stories. An extension and expression of their style and personality, and a way of celebrating both defining moments and the simple beauty of everyday.
Chari Cuthbert established BYCHARI Jewelry in 2012 to share her passion for efortless, hand-crafted designs.
Jamaican born, Chari lived all over the United States before settling on the beautiful island of Oahu, Hawaii. The self taught designer started making jewelry as an outlet for her creativity, constantly evolving her crafts-manship and aesthetic sensibilities.
Established in 2012, BYCHARI is a reflection of designer Chari Cuthbert’s approach to life and style. Effortless, unique and modern, each handmade piece is designed for women who appreciate simplicity but demand luxury–– just as she does. She is a great, well known designer that also uses the skills of other women and minority owned design businesses.
Having lived in cities all over the world, Chari recognized her rare approach to fashion. She had pared down her closet to simple, high quality investment pieces that she made her own with layered fine jewelry. Often passed down from women in her family or found on her travels, each piece told a story and became a way to redefine minimal style.
Remember the coveted “VOTE” necklace that former First Lady Michelle Obama wore at the 2020 DNC? It was designed by Chari Cuthbert, who founded her jewelry brand Bychari in 2012. All of her pieces—from earrings to custom necklaces—are handmade in L.A.
Chari took this concept and began creating her own pieces. The unique designs she couldn’t find anywhere else. Now ranging from essential, everyday jewelry to her more luxury fine and signature custom pieces, BYCHARI is worn by household names that define what style is today–– including Kate Hudson, Rose Huntington-Whiteley, Aimee Song, Chiara Ferragni, and Rocky Barnes.
Handmade sustainably in Los Angeles, Chari and her team remain committed to supporting local small businesses so that each BYCHARI piece can be worn with confidence.
The line has evolved and now includes fine jewelry. Her signature shark tooth pieces has become a favorite among bloggers, stylist and anyone visiting the islands. The pieces have become a must have keep- sake for the Hawaiian islands.
The line embodies her trademark style, dainty-edge and a straight forward mission: to create modern, delicate and versatile pieces that layer, stack, mix and match effortlessly at an approachable price point.
