ART YOUTH SOCIETY, or sometimes better known as AYS is a creative collective based in New York City. By integrating different art forms, styles and cultural influences, we wish to give birth to new forms of expression and celebrate our generation’s unique heritage. We support people and ideas we believe in. To highlight the launch, Art Youth Society’s founder Ays Yuva has created a handmade fine jewelry line, inspired by street savy women about town; creative, diverse, good-humored and whip-smart. An effortless way to combine the best of modern and classic, urban and uptown, the Ays Yuva by Art Youth Society jewellery line debuted in December 2012 with the message of love at its core.
“Whether feeling festive or sexy, playful or laid back, we have created a ring to match your mood. With over 90 styles of chic heart, diamond, and other geometric-shaped rings and ear studs, bracelets and pendants Ays Yuva by Art Youth Society was born out of the desire to create jewellery that is whimsical and sophisticated yet timeless and truly wearable.”
– Ays Yuva – Founder of AYS
The idea of Art Youth Society was born in 2010 when Ays Yuva created her first rings. The brand is inspired by fashion capitols New York, Paris and Istanbul, and fuelled by her passion for jewellery and fine craftsmanship; love and friendship always being present at the core of her designs. In 2012, Khaled Sufi joined Art Youth Society. Together they focused on the launch and brand development aspects of the AYS brand on a global scale.
