BESPOKE AND REWORKING A PERSONAL HEIRLOOM

Every piece is handmade in Katharina’s Munich studio and can be tailored to your preferences.

 

Her bespoke service allows you to customise pieces from her collections or create an entirely new design. Each jewel can be made-to-order with a preferred type, colour or size of stone and various precious metal alloys. If you are interested in having a piece of jewellery designed especially for you please email hello@kathykraus.com to arrange for a consultation either in person, via Skype or e-mail.

 

 

During the consultation Katharina will sketch designs based on your ideas and preferences. Once you have selected a design Katharina requires a 50% deposit for all bespoke and customised orders. Creating a bespoke jewel usually takes 4-6 weeks. During busy times such as the lead up to Christmas the timeframe might be longer. Please get in touch as soon as possible to ensure your piece will be ready in time.

 


PERSONALISE YOUR ORDER

If you would like to have something personalised for yourself or a loved one then Katharina can have your piece engraved for you. Whether it’s a name, a special date or a short message we would love to help you make your piece more personal. Please be aware that this incurs an extra charge depending on the number of characters. Please email hello@kathykraus.com to discuss options.

 

HANDMADE BEAUTY

Each piece of jewellery on this website has been specially hand-made from start to finish and the gemstones have been individually cut by hand. Each jewel is therefor unique and small variations will always occur in the making process. This can result in small differences from photographs. Stone and metal colours may vary slightly and sizes are accurate within reason.

 


RESPONSIBLE JEWELLERY

All materials are sourced responsibly and ethically from a small and transparent network of trusted suppliers in Germany. Each gemstone is handpicked. Katharina recycles all of her scrap metal where possible and works exclusively with recycled or reclaimed gold. Recycling precious metals means that the environmental impact is significantly lower than with the mining of new gold, which heavily relies on toxins such as mercury and arsenic.
