Based in Houston, Texas, Christina Greene LLC was founded in 2011 by Christina Greene, a graduate of Texas Christian University and Parsons School of Design in New York. Inspired by travels near and far, Christina launched her unique, upscale collection of artisan-crafted jewelry to bring a fresh perspective to jewelry design.
A one-of-a-kind collection, the Christina Greene jewelry line highlights the beauty of natural stones from all over the world. Each piece is designed in the company’s Houston, Texas studio and is crafted by a team of skilled artisans in Jaipur, India. Genuine semi-precious stones and 18K gold plating over hypoallergenic and nickel-free brass are just some of the high-quality hallmarks that go into Christina Greene jewelry.
The company’s roots date back to 2010 when Christina started hand-making her own jewelry by pairing stone beads such as turquoise, amethyst, citrine and coral with gold plated chains purchased from local jewelry supply shows. She got her first big break at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo when a woman loved one of her necklaces so much, that she purchased it right off of Christina’s neck. Today, what started out as sketches in drawing pads has become a successful jewelry collection retailing in over 40 boutiques worldwide and featured in numerous publications including British Vogue, Women’s Wear Daily, Houston Chronicle, and Texas Monthly.
Through philanthropic and community leadership roles, Christina is proud to be able to give back to the city of Houston. She serves as a Vice Chairman for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo’s Mutton Bustin’ Committee where she has been a member of the leadership team for the past three years. Inspired by her uncle’s battle with lung cancer, Christina has also been a substantial benefactor to the American Lung Association and has helped raise over $50,000 for the organization through the sale of her “Scotty Necklace.” Christina is the Chair for the Texas Christian University Houston Chapter of Pi Phis and is excited to co-chair the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s 2016 Houston Santa Crawl to raise money and awareness for the devastating disease.
Christina takes every opportunity she can to satisfy her wanderlust and travel the world. She is inspired by beautiful countries such as India, Spain and Morocco and continually works down her travel “bucket list.” Stateside, Christina relaxes by spending time in the great outdoors with her family in Crested Butte, Colorado and of course, rooting on the TCU Horned Frogs during football season.
