The Back Story
Women make up around 45% of sports fans yet existing sports accessories are based on casual wear (Think t-shirts, baseball caps, team logos, mascots etc.,) Founders Pel Parekh and Anupa Hemraj, both avid sports fans, saw no available sports jewelry in the market that works well for their everyday wear, so they decided to create their own line.
"We want to celebrate our home team by creating fresh and meaningful team colors sports jewelry that represents the modern women", says Anupa. "Being a sports fan is a lifestyle. Yet until now, there has never been a sports merchandise that is this beautiful, wearable, luxurious and super affordable." Pel adds, "We want a sports jewelry that can be worn anywhere, not just on game nights".
Viyari Sport is looking to raise $5,100 by November 3 to fund the initial development of the products. Starting at $35 pledge, backers of the Viyari Sport Kickstarter campaign will be able to select one or more of these jewelry pieces as a reward. Backers also have the option to pledge for an unforgettable experience with a trip to LA, tickets to see the Lakers game live at Staples Center and the entire jewelry collection.
The Viyari Sport collection is available for preorder at Kickstarter.com and is supposed to be available by December 2016.
