Based In Harlem, Beyoncé-Approved, A Brand That’s About To Blow Up

Kristin and Kofi Essel are a power couple and the two design creatives behind Third Crown, a jewelry brand that has found fans in BeyoncéSolange, and Cardi B.Third Crown is known for its bold, geometric pieces, crafted exclusively from gold, silver, and gunmetal.
