Ambition, drive and inspiration from their entrepreneurial grandfather—that’s all it took for sisters Julie Jordan and Katie King Aular to establish King George Shop, an online jewelry company based here in Sarasota. The dynamic duo delivers their passion through extraordinary designs of bracelets, earrings, rings and necklaces, as well as handbags, beach accessories like totes and kimonos, and coffee table decor like ornamental coasters and vanity trays.
Julie and Katie place a heavy emphasis on the value of the individual customer, catering designs toward unique tastes and stylistic preferences. “We aspire to seek out and find the most beautiful, yet functional pieces that we hope will enhance your everyday life, just as they do ours,” they say. Several King George pieces can be found embellished with various types of crystals, including pyrite, amethyst, agate and quartz. Much of the “ear candy” and necklaces embody feathery designs and tassels, stretching further the bohemian, free-spirited nature of the jewelry. The sisters’ website also provides customers with blog posts covering a wide variety of topics, many of them detailing ways to style the jewelry and incorporate it into their daily lives. With a seemingly endless spectrum of stunning hues, styles and virtues of jewelry and other products, Julie and Katie bring their versatility and a simultaneously youthful and mature flare to the creative coast.

ABC 7's My Suncoast View Segment with Red Hot Paris's, Ashley Hutson
April 6, 2018
Girlfriends, getting together, getting dressed up, drinking champagne and going out on the town. This is one of King George Shop and Red Hot Paris’s favorite pastimes. We’ve been doing it together for years. It’s the kind of getting together that is good for your soul. While we usually enjoy these times together in NYC, this time we were able to do it in Sarasota for once! The four of us have a special bond that you don’t find just anywhere, but this time we were missing our two favorite sisters. Even though we couldn’t all be together, Ashley and Julie were still accompanied by two pretty amazing women. Natalie Smithers, with a little convincing, joined us. As a mom of three beautiful children, wife to head Riverview football coach and elementary school teacher, she deserved this glam day for sure! Katie Hipsher, joined us as well. She’s a mom of two handsome boys, one with special needs (who she helps raise awareness for), wife of a regional manager of several local restaurants, and a full time nurse. So, she was also in dire need of some super fabulous, girl time. We met early in the morning at RHP glam house for hair, makeup, wardrobe, and mimosas! This was probably the most fun part for all of us. We then headed over to the ABC7 studios in Sarasota, FL to wait in the green room (just love saying that!) for our segment on the show (love saying that too!). We honestly were all super nervous and wanted to be sure to be great models for Ashley, of Red Hot Paris. She was brought on to the My Suncoast View show to talk all about her adventures and to discuss upcoming trends. She is an absolute natural in front of the camera. But even more than that, she has a way of making anyone feel beautiful. Her skills when it comes to hair, makeup and style are unparalleled. She truly finds the beauty, inside and out, in each person she meets. She used these skills to style us, in very distinct ways, that not only were on trend, but used these trends, in the most flattering ways on each of us. Most importantly, she finished off each designer outfit with a few King George Shop accessories. We were honored to be included in her segment and model gorgeous clothes from Chanel, Balmain, Micheal Kors, BCBG, Johanna Ortiz, Roksanda, and more!
