Kathaline Page-‐Guth: A New Unique Jewellery Brand from Florence
Kathaline Page-‐Guth, a fine jewellery designer based in Florence, Italy, will be unveiling her new online store on the 24th September 2015. Through her designs, Kathaline, who was born in Geneva in 1961 and has studied at the Gemological Institute of America, explores the female world, drawing inspiration from her own personal experiences, travels and passion for ancient geometry, cultural contaminations and precious materials. To mark the occasion, the new luxury brand, which proposes an exclusive, limited edition range of handcrafted designer rings, necklaces, earrings, pendants and broches, will be launching four distinctive collections:
Empowered is a unique range of assertive, statement pieces, showcasing an eclectic selection of designs with meticulous artisanal accents. The height of the collection is the striking ‘Claw’ ring, featuring a generous, London Blue Topaz stone in a Diamond pavé, feline claw setting.
Empowered collection: Claw ring Alter Ego collection: Kati ring
Glamourous and indulgent, the Burlesque collection is the epitome of feminine sensuality and luxury. The range features a sophisticated, ‘Passementerie’ ring with curvaceous, snake-‐like lines, punctuated with a shimmering array of brilliant cut, white or black Diamonds. In Alter Ego, the designer explores the dark side of the female psyche, expressed through glinting shark’s teeth and striking geometric forms. One of the highlights of the collection is the 18 karat yellow gold, ‘KATI’ ring, featuring a distinctive, circular motif with brilliant cut diamond accents. As the name dictates, the Romance collection, pampers to the gentler side of a woman’s nature. And it is here that the designer gives free reign to her creativity, crafting unusual, playful and extravagant designs of a timeless yet contemporary quality. One of these pieces
is ‘Greedy’, an exquisitely colourful dragon broach, made of a striking array of minute Tourmaline cabochons, Sapphires, Tsavorites, Diamond pavé, and a single Chrysoprase briolette. “I wanted to create a collection that expresses the true spirit of the modern-‐day woman. An independent woman who knows what she wants; a woman who doesn’t have to wait for a man to buy her a ring or a special piece of jewellery. For me, a piece of fine jewellery is more than just an ornamental accessory. It’s a rare and valuable work of art; a symbolic and emotional investment piece to be worn and treasured for generations to come”, states Kathaline Page-‐Guth about her new collection. Each piece is made entirely in Italy, by highly skilled Florentine artisans, using only the finest quality materials, and all of the diamonds, precious and semi-‐precious stones are ethically sourced and certified through the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS). Kathaline Page-‐Guth jewellery is available on the official website and in selected online stores, with prices ranging from €2000 to €24.000. For further information visit www.kathalinepageguth.com

About Kathaline Page Guth Born to Hungarian and American parents, in 1961, Kathaline Page-‐Guth grew up in Geneva, where she first studied Art. After graduating in Business Administration, in 1982 she moved to Milan where she worked as an Art Director at an advertising agency for five years, continuing to design and create in her own free time. She finally went freelance and channelled her passion for design, aesthetics, luxury objects, cultural crossovers and pattern making into everything, from furniture and home objects, to fabrics and clothes. Kathaline’s move to Florence in 1997 was a real turning point in her career. It was here that she came into contact with the Florentine ateliers and, under the mentorship of Simone Rucellai, began to learn the prestigious art of fine jewellery making. Convinced this was the ideal way to vent her obsession with sacred geometry, symbols, history and intercultural aesthetics, she enrolled on a number of courses at the Gemmological Institute of America and began designing and creating her own jewellery collection. The Collection This exclusive range of limited edition jewellery is inspired by the raw and multi-‐faceted vitality of the female experience. Women’s desires, sexuality and emotions, embodied in luxurious yet understated designs that express the dynamic and independent spirit of the modern-‐day woman. Meticulously crafted heirlooms that aren’t necessarily worn just on special occasions or chosen for us by someone else, but sophisticated pieces that radiate the true essence and complexity of who we are. Fine jewellery designed by a woman for women. Workmanship For Kathaline Page-‐Guth a piece of fine jewellery is more than an ornamental accessory. It’s a rare and valuable work of art; a symbolic and emotional investment piece to be worn and treasured for generations to come. This is why every design is handcrafted with the utmost care and precision by highly skilled artisans, trained in the century-‐old goldsmith tradition for which Florence is so renowned. Each piece is made from only the finest quality materials and all of our diamonds, precious and semi-‐precious stones are ethically sourced and certified through the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS).
