The Riches of Candice Pool
How rich is Candice Pool? As of mid-2018, sources estimate a net worth that is at $6.5 million, mostly earned through success in business. Her husband has also possibly contributed to her wealth as Casey has an estimated net worth that is at $12 million. As she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
While Candice was born in South Africa, her family moved to Texas where she was raised. At a young age, she had already developed an interest in design and art, finding fascination with jewelry in particular. Details of her education are unknown – she was employed as a bartender while working on jewelry design in hopes that it would turn out to something good. She had no prior experience or formal education in creating jewelry, but her passion for the craft was strong.
She initially began selling her designs door to door, going through various neighborhoods to sell rhinestone earrings as well as friendly plastic earrings. She eventually got into her stride, and accumulated enough capital to start her own company in 2005 – Finn Jewelry – and after a year, started releasing lines, focusing on classic meticulous designs. She expanded her collections, and her passion for jewelry crafting showed, despite not having any formal training.
In 2009, Pool bought an empty industrial loft located in Great Jones Street in Noho, New York City and turned it into a showroom for Finn Jewelry. Her endeavors were successful and now a huge display of jewelry from her various collections can be seen there. Jewelry designs there include Bridal, Classics, Moons & Stars, Western, and more. Each collection has various types of jewelry, including necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and rings, and there is even a section for men’s jewelry. One of her most popular jewelry designs is the bridal collection.
Finn Jewelry now includes two more designers and artists – Morgan Ditmore, a Fine Arts graduate from New School and Hannah Traulsen, who focuses on design, production and technicalities. The company has set up its own website which is also a means of selling various jewelry lines, and showcases their collections.
