About Kiona Elliott and Rising Jewelry


Welcome to Rising Jewelry, formerly known as Lucky Accessories, where every piece of jewelry tells a unique story. Based in Raleigh, NC, our handmade creations are designed to empower individuals and foster connections with their own life journeys. With nearly two decades of experience, Kiona Elliott, the owner, designer, and maker, brings a wealth of craftsmanship and creativity to each piece.

Growing up in Rotterdam, Netherlands, Kiona was immersed in an entrepreneurial and creative environment, but it wasn't until she moved to Raleigh that she discovered her true passion for designing and creating jewelry. After working for a local custom jewelry designer for years, she decided to embark on her own creative journey in 2004 and established Lucky Accessories, soon to be rebranded as Rising Jewelry.

Situated in a sunny Studio in Downtown Raleigh, Kiona continues to pursue her passion, designing and creating jewelry that brings joy and a sense of connection. The commitment to sustainability is reflected in the use of repurposed materials, aligning with the values of nature and purpose. Rising Jewelry offers a wide range of customizable options, allowing customers to highlight their individuality and personal stories through elegant and minimalist designs.

As a local jewelry artist in Raleigh, North Carolina, Rising Jewelry takes pride in serving a diverse clientele who appreciate handmade, sustainable, and locally sourced products. Rising Jewelry is made for individuals who value self-expression and seek meaningful pieces that reflect their values. By wearing the jewelry from Rising Jewelry, customers can confidently embrace their journeys of self-discovery and spark conversations that go beyond style.

At Rising Jewelry, we understand that owning a piece of their jewelry is more than just an accessory – it's a powerful statement of identity and connection. Whether individuals are in search of a thoughtful gift or a meaningful addition to their own collection, the jewelry from Rising Jewelry will inspire and empower them.
