Fan Club: Kathy Rose Selected By Katey Brunini



 Katey Brunini raves about the designs of her former high schoolmate, Kathy Rose. 

 [dropcap cap=FROM THE TIME KATHY ] was co-owner of the cutting-edge jewelry shop Kaviar & Kind in Los Angeles, her own designs have attracted celebrity collectors including Madonna, Cameron Diaz and Angelina Jolie. Well-known for her visionary retail experience and inspired jewelry designs, Rose launched both the Roseark collection of fine jewelry and first Roseark store in West Hollywood in 2008 and a second store in Santa Monica in 2010. Her own designs fill a niche for the woman who desires modern jewelry with a sensibility that is rooted in ancient treasures and ornaments collected from around the globe, with a nod to past civilizations and cultures. The space in her boutique was built to be “an oasis in Los Angeles and a destination shop unmatched by any other
in the city.” Winner of Bravo’s Launch My Line, Rose furthers her vision for a new direction in clothing, utilizing gems as inspiration. Each garment is designed as a palette to showcase jewels. — STORY BY BETH BERNSTEIN [/dropcap]




“I met Kathy about six years ago, but it wasn’t until she bought my collection
for her first Los Angeles-based shop that we realized we had gone to high school together! As a designer herself, Kathy could really zero in on the woman she knew her customer to be. She has an uncanny eye for creativity and a true
inventiveness in her own designs.” “When she launched her own collection
and store, I became fully acquainted with all of her work. I am truly enamored
with her organic treatment and imagery. She mixes spirit motifs with Native American art and a touch of tribal, and it all blends so well into one cohesive and elegant aesthetic.” “I admire the fact that she infuses her soul into each of her designs, and it
vibrates with her spirit and her personality.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
