They are perfect for everyday as well as the ideal gift for your bridal party- slip a tiny photo or note into these little lockets and you have a truly touching (and gorgeous) keepsake any girl would treasure.

Owner and designer, Kelley Solomon, has always had a passion for style, fashion and art. Growing up loving the arts, she studied fashion and photography in college. Upon graduation, Kelley moved to Martha’s Vineyard where she created her first jewelry line, KDesign, which was sold in a variety of island exclusive boutiques. Kelley found peace and inspiration for her jewelry through the island’s rustic charm, raw beauty, and spirituality.
In 2011, she launched her new collection and named it after her favorite place on Martha’s Vineyard, a q u i n n a h. Each piece of a q u i n n a h jewelry is handcrafted in a humble studio, nestled in picturesque Killingworth, Connecticut.
Kelley loves vintage clothing and accessories, wearing cowboy boots, and has a classic tomboy style she mixes with sparkly accessories, bags, shoes and the occasional red lipstick. She enjoys dining at cozy restaurants that use local produce and shopping in small eclectic boutiques.
A q u i n n a h jewelry is made to wear with jeans and a slouchy sweater or a wedding gown.
Being a unique line of luxury accessories, a q u i n n a h jewelry is sold exclusively through The White Dress by the shore and Jennie Fresa Beauty Library both located in Clinton, Connecticut. Kelley has been commissioned to create special pieces to adorn wedding gowns by Modern Trousseau, a couture bridal company in Woodbridge, Connecticut. A q u i n n a h jewelry has graced magazine covers and has been featured in The Connecticut Bride magazine.
