Katie Bartels’ path as a jewelry designer began in college when she stumbled upon a gemstone store during a trip to Barcelona, Spain. Katie was in awe of the rows of vibrantly colored gems. She purchased several strands and began making jewelry for herself. After receiving countless compliments on her designs, Katie decided to pursue a career as a jewelry designer.
She received a Graduate Gemology degree from the Gemological Institute of America and founded Katie Bartels Jewelry. Katie’s lightweight statement pieces are inspired by her love of color and world travels. Each piece is created in our New York City design studio.
