Katherine Kim’s fine jewelry line, KATKIM, is founded on the eternal radiance of the world’s most romantic metal. Katherine studied jewelry design at Central Saint Martin College of Design in London and the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York where she developed her unique style. She has a background in graphic design, which she has transitioned into her jewelry design with clean lines and geometric shapes.
KATKIM combines purity, smooth texture, and the sparkle of gold to create unexpected masterpieces. Each piece is handcrafted in their Los Angeles studio using ethically sourced materials. KATKIM’s signature Ear Pins create optical illusions that exude modernity and elegance, making them extremely memorable and covetable.
KATKIM’s pieces also hold a greater significance and are designed to address specific issues. For example, the Boob Locket was created to honor Katherine’s friend Yuri, who is battling stage 4 cancer. The locket looks like a sphere with a single diamond, but once opened the necklace reveals a set of breasts. KATKIM believes that fashion opens up a platform for issues to be discussed.
“Design can be used in any way imaginable to make a difference in the world.” - Katherine Kim, Founder
