Katie Bartels' Profile
Katie Bartels Jewelry began in 2007 when Katie launched her eponymous label after being inspired by global travel and a love of bold colors.
It all started when Katie visited a small gem store in Barcelona, Spain, where the majestic blues, deep reds, and varying hues of orange and purple captivated her. She took her passion for gemstones and received a Graduate Gemology degree from GIA and began her line of vibrant gemstone statement pieces.
Katie sources her natural gemstones in NYC’s garment district and each collection is carefully made by hand in her midtown Manhattan studio.
