A note from our founders
Lexie & Nicolette Contursi
Sister duo Lexie and Nicolette's admiration for jewelry began at a very young age, inspired by their mother’s talent to create looks expressing her personal style with antique jewelry passed down through generations. “Pile it on!”, she’d say, as she curated the most fabulous golden stacks. They began hunting for treasures and finding incredible, unique pieces and they never took them off! As friends and others began to comment on their curated vintage stacks, they soon realized that finding and styling antique jewels became a creative outlet for the girls. They view jewelry as the key finishing piece to any ensemble! It's their similar aesthetic and love for the hunt makes the CN team the perfect mélange.
Lexie and Nicolette's biggest aspiration for Chat Noir is to help others transition their extravagant pieces into everyday essentials. Every piece in the collection can be worn just as easily with vintage Levi’s & a tee, as with your favorite little black dress and kitten heels! With an affinity for the finer things in life and a love for film and dance, Chat Noir was born. A collection where all pieces can be layered, Chat Noir inspires all to live your days dripping in gold!
