true by kristy is a hand-crafted & specially curated jewelry line designed by Kristy McKillop

Inspired by color, nature, and positive energy, true by kristy uses high quality 14k gold filled jewelry and genuine semi-precious gemstones perfect for everyday.

True by kristy was born out of my love for jewelry and all things that possess symbolism and meaning. Careful thought, consideration, and heart goes into every piece. You can mix and match any piece to create a fresh, new look. Layer up your favorites and just wear what feels good!



Hi there! My name is Kristina, but I go by Kristy for short. I’m born and raised in Pennsylvania, in the suburbs of Philadelphia, where I currently live with my husband of over a decade and my two sweet kiddos. 

I'm jewelry obsessed; I always have been. Few things make me happier than my family, the beach, and jewelry — in that order. We spend a lot of time in our favorite beach town, Sea Isle City, New Jersey, where I get a lot of my beachy inspo. We love, love, LOVE the shore (as we Philly folks call it). I also love being active and have recently become a runner. I enjoy spending time with friends and family and I love to read. I love being on the go, as I am a social butterfly. And, of course, I adore making jewelry. You can find me in my studio making (and gushing over) jewelry almost every day of the week. 

I've been in the jewelry business since 2014, working as an independent business owner for a well-known retail brand, before I started my own jewelry line in December of 2018. My new small business is so exciting and I can honestly say that every single time an order is placed I do a happy dance — feeling the love and support from you!

My necklaces and bracelets are meant to be worn individually or stacked together. I personally wear mine layered and stacked. The more the merrier! I love anything boho-inspired, yoga, beach, and personal. I love color and anything that brings happiness. But, oddly enough, my favorite color is white. 

Make sure to come hang with us on Instagram over at @truebykristy as that's where all of my new designs, restocks, sales & giveaways are announced first. 

I promise to provide the best quality and service that you’d expect from a small business. Thank you to everyone who is here supporting me and cheering me on, especially my family and dear friends. It means the absolute world to me, as I am loving and living my own personal dream.

Cheers to meaningful jewelry and positive energy! 

Kristy xo
