As Kendra has always said, “We always have something to give.” As we’ve heard Red Nose Day buzzed about (Hello, Love Actually!), we had to get in on the fun and give back.
Kendra Scott took New York City by storm this May with a Kendra Cares event at Sloane Kettering Cancer Center, Mother’s Day surprises, Create & Cultivate, and airstream pop-ups. We painted NYC Yellow and loved every minute. Press play to see our week in NY come to life!
And we’re not done just yet! Kendra Scott is headed to the Hamptons, y’all. We are so excited to open our pop-up store in Southampton this Friday, May 26! Visit us in Southampton at 44A Main Street. We’ll be there all summer long and have tons of surprises in store. Can’t wait to see you there!
Start spreading the news…Kendra Scott is spending summer in the City! We’re bound for NYC for a week that’s filled with the things we love most: Family, Fashion, and Philanthropy.
Kendra Cares Program at Memorial Sloan Kettering
To start off our New York adventures, we’re heading to the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center to bring our Color Bar™ experience to young patients and their families. The Kendra Cares Program is dear to Kendra’s heart, and we are thrilled to be expanding into a total of 10 hospitals nationwide in 2017. Stay tuned for more on this exciting giveback program!

The Kendra Cares Program began at MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital, an institution close to my heart. It was there, during a tour of the pediatric floor, that I was first inspired to bring the magic of the Color Bar™ by Kendra Scott to life in the hospital. What started as a dream became an opportunity for hundreds of young cancer patients and their caregivers to design a custom piece of jewelry, and give a sense of joy and normalcy to their lives.
The program became such a well-loved success, we have decided to expand into 10 new hospitals across the nation in 2017. Seeing the joy on these kids’ faces, giving them a momentary break from whatever challenge they face that day … This is what makes the Kendra Cares Programs so important to me. It’s my dream that one day we are able to bring the Color Bar™ to every hospital in America.
Our 2017 Kendra Cares Program
With the Kendra Cares program, we bring the magic of the Color Bar™ by Kendra Scott to hospitals around the nation. To date, the program has donated over 2,000 pieces of jewelry and has rapid national growth plans. Kendra personally selected 10 hospitals to be a part of our 2017 program expansion, but we know that this is just the beginning…
We are firm believers in treating yourself! Especially for those mamas out there, you deserve all the sparkle. This Mother’s Day we’re celebrating with Win Your Wishlist. View more below for a step-by-step breakout.
During the week of our Summer ’17 Collection launch, we gathered to celebrate with Kendra and some of our favorite friends, fashion icons, execs, and philanthropists, at the rooftop of the London West Hollywood. Hosted in partnership with Kind Campaign co-founders Molly Thompson and Lauren Paul, we celebrated our beachy collection under the stars.
With each new season, our Design team dreams into new techniques. In Spring of 2016, we introduced our first Dichroic Glass pieces. Now we’ve added the stone to our Color Bar™, so you can customize pieces that are all your own.
“We’re creating Dichroic Glass in a way that no other jewelry company is. I love the bar silhouette. I think we found the perfect shape to cast a shine like I’ve never seen before.” Denise Chumlea, VP of Design
A material unlike any other, our designers worked for months crafting just the right stone shape and facet design to bring out the most sparkle. Click through to read more about one of our favorite stones.
Introducing our most luxurious fine jewelry designs yet – a celebration of timeless beauty, bringing our most iconic designs to life in 14k gold and diamonds. The newest additions to our Fine Jewelry Collection are inspired by the feminine Sophee silhouette, with a softly curved shape that feels at once modern and timeless. Available in three shades of 14k gold and accented with pave diamonds of brilliant round cut faceting, these jewels are the perfect way to celebrate someone special.
“Perfect for Mother’s Day, birthdays and every day, these beautiful pieces truly are made to love for a lifetime.” XO- Kendra

I always say that my most important job is being a mother to my three boys. Growing up in Kenosha, Wisconsin, I was surrounded by a large, loving family and a kind, generous mom who set an example of the mother I wanted to be someday. She taught me that being a mother may be the hardest job in the world, but it is by far the most rewarding.
My family is my world, and I created a company culture that allows me to put them first. That may mean I show up to the office in sneakers because I’m running to a soccer game right after a board meeting, or my designers might get an email from me at midnight because I put off a project until the boys went to bed. And I believe every woman deserves the same work-life balance. That’s why in our Kendra Scott pillars of Family, Fashion and Philanthropy, Family comes first. It always will.
To the mothers of all kinds, I want to wish you a Happy Mother’s Day.
Kendra and Hillary chat about the early days (working from a spare bedroom)…living a dream (hello, Nail Bar!)…compartmentalizing as a woman in business (we agree, we’re over the idea of “balancing it all”)…and of course, GUCCI!
