We are proud to have the 'Freya' cuff from our Candra collection featured by British Vogue in their May issue's - 'Gilt Trippers' feature! Here is what they had to say, " The MeganKyle woman celebrates her 'joie de vivre' with panache. Wherever her travels take her, she seamlessly layers her favourite MeganKyle jewellery with treasures from her life. Their Freya cuff is an evolution of traditional shapes, textures and silver reflecting the influences in their designs. " - British Vogue

Congratulations to UNICEF Canada on another exceptional ‘Sold Out’ gala in Calgary that raised almost $920,000. This impressive accomplishment in a challenging economy is a testament to the powerfully tangible, life influencing impact UNICEF programs have on the lives of millions of people around the world. Calgarians are known worldwide as being generous of heart and ready to be part of something greater; especially the lives of children. Never truer than in times of personal hardships and economic challenges is man’s ability to give from a place of grace.
We are very proud and humbled to have played a small role in this year’s event through a donation of one of our favourite pearl pieces - our Fireball freshwater pearl ‘Penelope’ necklace. Congratulations to the lucky winner. The money raised this year is supporting 2 projects.
* Improving the health and living conditions for over 5,800 people living in 10 remote villages in Chad. The program supported will construct boreholes and water pumps to provide clean, safe drinking water, and will build latrine blocks in schools and health centres to improve sanitation coverage.
* Improving water resilience for over 60,000 people - including 20,000 children - in rural Mongolia. The program will create community-based Water Safety Plans to ensure the ongoing safe supply of drinking water and will improve water quality at the household-level through education on water treatment methods and safe storage in the home.
Our support of UNICEF Canada’s annual Water for Life Gala and other global initiatives in support of children and clean drinking water would not be possible without YOU - our wonderful family. We thank all who have made a purchase; choosing to authentically ‘Wear Your Story’. Your special piece of jewellery supports our shared value of giving back to a global community. At MeganKyle we believe the qualities of beauty (heart light), grace and wisdom are present in all of us. They transcend all ages and cultures. Especially during the holidays. We send our heartfelt wishes for a meaningful holiday season with your friends and family!
