Just listen to Colorado-based Kathryn Giarratano speak about her lineage and you understand how she immediately can identify which jewelry women want to wear, share with their daughters, or pass down later in life. “My mother is one of five girls and my dad has two sisters. I am one of three girls and I have two daughters, Giuliana and Layla.”
Kathryn’s philosophy is to create a core wardrobe of jewelry that is anything but basic.
“We all have our favorite fashion pieces that are seasonless and we know will look good whenever we wear them. These are the pieces that we reach for first. I have tried to achieve the same feeling with my jewelry collection with pieces that act as jewelry wardrobe staples yet also hit an emotional chord with the wearer.” It’s not surprising that Kathryn started her career in fashion and wardrobe styling where she learned the art of creative essentials, merchandising and how to mix and combine fashion and jewelry without every looking ‘over the top’.
Kathryn believes the best jewelry is ageless. “It’s the piece you can borrow from your mother or lend to your daughter (if she’s old enough to wear jewelry) and those you are given as gifts or purchase for yourself. It’s all about the pieces you love and wear consistently –that you feel good in and are familiar and comfortable with like good friends and… all of the women in your family.”
