Two longtime friends, one big idea, and a little pho restaurant in Chicago – we’re Nico and Pat and this is the story of how we took a risk and started Atlas Jewelry Co. in the middle of a global pandemic.
It was the end of 2019 and Pat and I each had the year of a lifetime. Pat had quit his job at Google (yeah, you read that right) to become a full time touring musician and I had been able to travel the world while working as a professional model. We reflected on the year but both agreed that in 2020, we wanted to do something even bigger!
At that moment, Pat and I decided to build a brand based on our love of travel, adventure, and the endless pursuit of a life worth living. We dedicated ourselves every day to building our ideas and learning new skills and in March 2020, we introduced Atlas Jewelry Co. to the world! It’s been an entrepreneurial rollercoaster ride since then but we can’t thank You enough for being a part of our journey!
The goal of Atlas is to bring unique jewelry pieces to You and your adventures. We believe that high quality doesn’t always need to come with a high price tag and we work every day to ensure that the products we create are designed to last and priced fairly.
Pat and I believe that every day has the potential to be a grand adventure, that every day has lessons and skills to be learned, and that each one of us can write and rewrite our own stories. That is what Atlas is about and this is our story of how it came to be.
Now, what will be the story that You write?
-Nico & Pat
