About Us

KC Benain - Founder of Y-CLAD INC. (Pronounced ee-klad)

Y-CLAD is a premium lifestyle brand and retailer of luxury handmade jewelry and fashion accessories.


The origin of Y-CLAD. "Yclad" is an archaic, middle English word from the 1300's, which by definition is "to clothe or to accessorize."


Y-CLAD is your resource for fine and luxury items, simply put 'THE' Accessories Destination to shop exclusive finds.


For KC, it all began as leisure shopping. While she and her husband traveled the Caribbean, KC would buy eccentric artifices from each destination as keepsakes. Her friends, family and colleagues would inquire about those very pieces and eventually purchase her unique jewels. A once fun and adventurous interest developed into a vocation of, first procuring and later, designing unique jewelry.


KC and her team curate's with a keen eye, a diverse collection of jewels and accessories and offer collections with price points that vary from higher-end pieces to more affordable ones. Y-CLAD's assortment of jewels and accessories are unique, yet functional, handmade but luxury and fashioned from some of the world's finest materials. We've teamed up with trendsetting designers who fashion fresh, unique and cutting-edge jewelry and accessories.
