After gaining industry experience through her work at a major department store, the renowned Fred Joaillier of Paris, and David Webb, Katy Briscoe established her own full-service jewelry company in 1994.

Creating her fine jewelry line with her personal mantra in mind--“go big or go home”--Briscoe brings a bold approach to her jewelry, using unique colored gemstones to create one-of-a-kind and statement pieces made in 18-karat yellow gold.

She takes a truly personalized approach to design, naming and creating her pieces to complement the form, idea, or the client who inspired them.

Years ago when her publicist suggested a new product line, she and the team thought that her aesthetic would also translate well into the home. In 2010 the designer launched her own dinnerware and gift collection followed shortly by a home collection, featuring bone china with gold finishes, natural corals and mineral specimens, among other materials, sold at high-end retail stores across the country.
