About Collections

The Kara Collection

The inspiration behind the Kara Collection is May Yeung Jewelry's Operations Manager, Kara Achzet. Kara started working for MYJ while a junior at UCLA and was May’s first part-time office clerk. Now over 11 years later, she works full-time for MYJ as an Operations Manager handling production, online marketing, web content development and maintenance, and a great deal more.

Kara is clearly May’s second set of eyes and ears and has been an integral part of the design process each season. One day in 2006 when Kara was organizing previous years’ jewelry samples and color catalogs, she suggested to May to reintroduce the wire wrapped freshwater pearl drop, which was the signature pearl drop that launched MYJ in 1999. After some thought, May decided it was indeed time to update her original wire wrapped pearl drop by combining contemporary findings to create a sophisticated look.

The revival of the elegant and simple wrapped pearl is the reason this collection proudly bears Kara’s name.
