Back in 2009, as Kande Hall was wandering the backstreets of Paris-my favorite city in the world-I happened upon these crusty, little medallions. So Stylish and captivating, they were unlike anything I had ever seen. I purchased a handful for what I hope would make nice gifts for friends and family back home. Little did I know, that day would change my life.
Kande loves pearls; with a pair of jeans and a tee or a cute LBD. Whether she is out on the town or on the back of her husband's motorcycle, nothing makes her feel more feminine. So, a few months after returning stateside, when she clasped an old medallion onto an opera length strand of pearls, something clicked...and that was the day French Kande was born.
Born & raised in Southern California, indie designer & Francophile for life Kande Hall turned a chance discovery in a Paris flea market into an extraordinary jewelry company & brand that has captured the attention of women across the country. Launched in May 2010, her designs feature vintage French medallions that she collects during her travels throughout France. Each medallion has a history or unique story about the company it was created for during the 1960's.
Working daily in her Southern California studio, she designs & releases four major collections a year which are available across the U.S.
