‘Cast’ Online Jewelry Brand Raises $12M to Pursue Self-Purchasing Women

The company has brick-and-mortar retail aspirations.




Direct-to-consumer jewelry brand Cast has raised $12 million to fuel its growth plans.

The company, which had a soft launch earlier this month, is targeting its efforts toward self-purchasing women, Glossy reports.

“Our intent is to grow a major brand, but we want to nail it before we scale,” founder Eric Ryan told the publication. “We know we won’t get everything right up front, but this first year will be all about developing the product, growing the audience and perfecting the concept.”

Ryan’s other ventures have included vitamin and gummy brand Olly and home cleaning concept Method.

Cast concentrates its marketing on Instagram and the company’s intent is that “collections will drop at least once a month from a rotating list of designers,” according to Glossy.

Eventually, more than a year in the future, Ryan plans to build a brick-and-mortar retail presence for the brand.


The funding round was led by True Ventures.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Wilkerson: “They Feel Like Family”

Newton’s Jewelers in Fort Smith, Ark., was a true institution. But after being at the helm for most of his life, owner (and descendent of the original founder) Kelly Newton decided it was time to retire. He chose Wilkerson to handle the sale. “I’ve known the owners of Wilkerson for a long, long time. I felt at home with them,” he says. The final retirement sale was just a “blast” and the Wilkerson sales team made it so very simple and straightforward, says Newton. Would he recommend Wilkerson to others? Absolutely. “They’ve done incredible work,” says Newton. “They feel like family.”
