This West Kelowna jewelry company just debuted in Paris

From the Okanagan to France

Two West Kelowna jewelers had a remarkable opportunity to showcase their creations at the prestigious Paris Fashion Week in early October.

Carolily, founded in 2015, by mother-daughter duo Donna and Danielle Scheven, have successfully showcased their work through prestigious outlets and garnered attention from publications like Vanity Fair, Vogue, and Glamour.

They focus on crafting jewelry for women that promote self-love and self expression, regardless of age.

“It has been a surreal experience,” said Danielle in a press release. “We had the privilege of participating in New York Fashion Week a few years back, but seeing our jewelry walk the Parisian runways was something else entirely.”

The one-of-a-kind collection that made its debut in Paris designed by Donna, is an ode to the celebration of women, and pays tribute to the glamour of the past.

“Creating a collection without restrictions or boundaries was as freeing as it was exhilarating,” Donna said in a news release. “Seeing our jewelry walk the runway after months of hard work and numerous design iterations was incredibly validating.”
