The Woman Behind the Brand
Founder and designer Crystalyn Aucoin is based in New Orleans, Louisiana and the mom of a football-loving boy named Winston.
After a decade in the jewelry industry selling luxury brands such as David Yurman, Rolex, and MIKIMOTO at Aucoin Hart Jewelers, she decided to create her own jewelry line to fill a gap she saw in the market for casual fine jewelry with meaning.
She launched Crystalyn Aucoin Jewelry in October of 2018.
A Journey of Gratitude: Crystalyn’s Story
Running a jewelry business was not always part of Crystalyn's vision, but a life-altering event changed the course of her journey. In 2016, she lost her 38-year-old husband, Ryan, to cancer. His battle included an initial diagnosis of Peripheral T-cell Lymphoma NOS and later Acute Myeloid Leukemia.
His life, his encouraging words and his death ultimately gave her the strength to unapologetically live out her purpose. Today, she navigates life with a heightened sense of gratitude and intention while encouraging others to do the same.
An Emphasis on Giving
As a way to honor her late husband, Crystalyn allocates a percentage of sales and in-kind donations to cancer-related non-profit organizations. She also celebrates Ryan’s birthday with an annual butterfly release that helps support other families experiencing the burden of cancer.
In recent news, Crystalyn is proud to be a candidate for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s 2022 Man & Woman of the Year campaign.

“The Mine” Community
In 2021, Crystalyn started a private virtual community where women help each other navigate through the powerful journey of personal development. Each week, members dig deep into their mindset, goals and dreams through guided group journaling.
In leading this group, Crystalyn discovered her passion for speaking. Now you can find her giving talks on empowering topics, like Designing a Life You Love, Designing a Business You Love and Driving Sales through Connection.
