A new season, a new jewelry collection, AND a new brand name.

Nearly Naked is now criscara. Featuring all the same jewelry you love plus a widely expanded selection of everyday essentials including bracelets, necklaces and earrings.

Why criscara?

criscara is a play on the name Crista, our jewelry designer and co-founder, and circare, a latin word meaning to wander & to explore. We feel it perfectly embodies the free-spirited and adventurous spirit our brand and jewelry inspires.


What about Nearly Naked?

We know how much our customers love Nearly Naked, and we do too! Nearly Naked will remain as a collection under the criscara brand with an ever-expanding selection of luxe body chains, hand chains, and foot chains.
