STORIES SET IN STONES
Welcome to the Cathy Pope Jewellery online shop. Cathy’s passion for beauty and exceptional eye for design is the killer combo behind her limited edition designer jewellery.
Hand-crafted to perfection, this New Zealand designer’s statement gemstone jewellery is simple, bold and timeless. Cathy’s focus is more about style than fashion and her designs are treasured possessions that will withstand fads and trends. “I love celebrating the imperfections of semi-precious gemstones and enjoy sourcing and designing with less convention. I’m a fan of pattern and texture and I’m always striving to create a new experience for my customers and design unique pieces they haven’t seen before. ”
“Before Cathy Pope Jewellery I wore mostly heirloom pieces that I’d inherited as I’ve never enjoyed wearing mass produced jewellery. I’d been given a some chunky crystal beads and decided to pop a bead on a simple big chain and quickly realised I’d created the perfect necklace for myself. Soon my friends were ordering them and shortly after a shop assistant asked to stock them, the media loved them and that’s how it all began.”
Classically inspired with a modern simplicity, each piece features striking gemstones, from balancing amethyst to energizing carnelian. Hailing from exotic locations like Pakistan, Brazil and Africa, each gemstone has its own story to tell. Cathy’s jewellery is ideal for the woman who cares if her jewellery is made ethically and isn’t interested in following the crowd and wearing mass produced labels.
With a successful career in design, from costume design for TV, film and theatre to bespoke wedding dresses, Cathy Pope is quickly gaining a reputation in the New Zealand fashion scene for producing distinctive gemstone jewellery with stand-out style. When she’s not designing and creating her sought-after gemstone jewellery, Cathy is working as a costume stylist on tv commercials or traveling to India to work with the artisans and gemstone cutters who help bring her designs to life.
