About The Giving Keys

The Giving Keys is a social impact company working to end homelessness through employment. Before The Giving Keys was officially founded, actress and singer Caitlin Crosby began selling keys engraved with inspirational words at her concerts. As the keys grew in popularity, Crosby realized she could create a standalone business and in 2008, The Giving Keys was born.

The Giving Keys’ collection of jewelry and accessories is designed to inspire you to be your best, most authentic self through a core collection of keys with hand-stamped inspiring words and on-trend fashion pieces that serve as daily reminders of who you are becoming. Keys are sourced from around the world, with many of our vintage keys traveling through significant periods in history. Their fashion pieces feature materials including plated gold, precious stones and glass beads, among other unique statement elements. Signature to many of their designs is a hand-stamped key featuring one of their core words or a custom word chosen by the individual and inspiring special meaning. In addition to words, The Giving Keys creates initial necklaces, and can engrave symbols including religious symbols, hearts, a semicolon and Greek letters.

To The Giving Keys, Los Angeles is such a vibrant city with so many sources of inspiration; it’s truly a dream to create in this city.  Additionally, it has an incredibly strong workforce, so for The Giving Keys, they are headquartered in DTLA because LA has the best of all worlds – our jewelry is a reflection of the diversity and originality they see everyday, and their team is comprised of a cross-section of LA, each person committed to furthering their mission. They are very excited to be part of Mayor Garcetti’s program and highlight what they love about LA in our own, unique way. The more people who purchase their products, the more lives they’re able to change by putting people to work!
