It’s been an exciting few weeks with the launch of our Pretty Connected pearl phone chain. It’s no secret pearls have been all the rage this year and we’ve been all the rage on TikTok. And if you caught the latest season of Emily in Paris, it looks like we’re right on trend! With true fashion meets function, we introduce our new phone chain, $36 (just the chain) and $60 with the case!
I’m also so excited I got to include the pearl phone chain in my latest holiday segment for Extra!
I’m joining forces with KESHA for a limited-edition Yin Yang necklace collection. Based on Pretty Connected’s two most popular multi-use chain styles and introducing the brand’s first rose gold chain colorway.
It’s a true fashionable-yet-functional multi-use product that goes far beyond being a necklace or mask chain and designed to outlive the pandemic as an investment to your jewelry collection. Each chain is adorned with a limited-edition Yin Yang charm with the singer/songwriter’s signature logo on the back.
“I wanted to collaborate with Pretty Connected because I was wearing their chains all the time. I’d wear it as a necklace, everywhere, even to the beach. On my mask, my sunglasses, my cell phone, water bottle… I lose everything so it comes in so handy!” said Kesha.
Everything about this collaboration has been a dream. To have Kesha as a partner and create something so beautiful and meaningful together has been such a special experience. I’m excited not only for her fans but Pretty Connected supporters as well to get the opportunity to have the Yin Yang charm as a reminder to say balances or at least strive for it, even if it seems difficult or even impossible at times.
[On why a Yin Yang symbol] “It was a symbol that kept finding me during the past year. I wanted to put it on the chain because I feel like it’s a symbol of harmony. And I wanted to remind myself, in the light, there’s dark, in the dark, there is light and it’s a cyclical thing, it’s the balance of life. And it was just a weird thing where I felt more connected to that message and reminder wearing the Pretty Connected chains.” – Kesha
