about us

Cayetano Legacy Collection, Inc. was founded by three sisters Karen Cayetano Leano, Gail Cayetano and Christine Cayetano Brigino, after recognizing a need for women’s jewelry and handbags showcasing the beautifully sourced material from the Philippine Islands. As first generation Filipino Americans these sisters wanted to bring worldwide attention to the beauty coming from this lush country, while also giving back to the nation that has given them their heritage.

The company is run by CEO Gail Cayetano, marketing entrepreneur of both Starfish Creative Events, Inc and Shop Talk Los Angeles. She was named Best Young Entrepreneur by the Stevie Awards as well as "20 in their 20's" by the Los Angeles Business Journal. The jewelry is designed and production managed by COO Karen Cayetano Leano and CCO Christine Cayetano Brigino.

Karen has worked at major fashion houses Tommy Hilfiger and Dolce & Gabbana, as well as independent fashion jewelry label, Designs by K Cayetano. Her jewelry designs were featured in various publications including highly acclaimed "Twin Cities Luxury." Christine's fashion background includes sales for United Colors of Bennetton, European companies - La Senza and Zara, and most recently as creative director for her independent fashion label, Elegant Uniforms by Christine.

Cayetano Legacy Collection actively supports Filipino programs that train its citizens to source and manufacturer these products, enabling both the creation of jobs as well as economic growth.
