Tristen Ikaika • Orem •  Founder + CEO • Age 21

Tristen Amal Ikaikamaikai’ikaneokalani Persons is quite the ring leader. He started making rings out of spoons when he was just 12 years old. (Yes, spoons!) Fast-forward to when he turned 19. Persons dreamed of traveling the world, so he sold his spoon-fed rings to pay for it. As it turns out, people wanted his unique, circular vision — and his business was born. Today, Persons travels circles around the globe and crafts his ring collections based on the ever-changing world around him. And he just happens to bring his 64k Instagram friends along for the ring ride.
