Designer, Katherine Pantazopoulos Karambelas, started the jewelry design house in 2009. Karambelas’ creative path started at a very young age. She was always fascinated by design, art, architecture, and fashion. Studying at LaSalle College in Montreal in both Fashion Design and Merchandising soon led her to her true talent, jewelry design. “My three daughters were growing up so quickly and I needed to evolve as a mother and as a woman; reinvent myself. I didn’t search long for an idea that had the potential to fulfill my life in a new way. I knew fashion was my path. I was constantly trying to find the perfect jewels to match my outfits and no store had what I was looking for. I decided to create my own fantasy jewels. The rest is history.”
Katherine’s family joined the company in 2010. With her eldest daughter, Faith, and the support of her husband, Sam, the brand was first exhibited in Montreal and they have since then travelled all of Canada and the United States. In 2013, Katherine’s second daughter, Nektaria joined the team. “We look forward to the day when my youngest daughter, Maria-Anna, who is already dabbing her fingers here and there, is able to fully join the team.”
Katherine Karambelas Jewelry is handmade in Montreal with Swarovski crystals, carefully selected semi-precious stones, and metals plated ranging from 22K gold vermeil, 9.25 sterling silver, as well as regular plated metals. The metals are hypo-allergenic and cadmium, lead, and nickel free.
