Kate & Kole

Kate & Kole is the creative glitter-storm of Sara and Madalynne. Born out of a desire to create something to own, something that belonged and something that deserved to be made.

Sara & Madalynne are part of the creative community of Newcastle, Australia, and started Kate & Kole to compliment their professional fields.

Each piece has been designed in Newcastle and made for you in New York, using a combination of state-of-the-art and traditional jewellery making processes, with each piece made to order.

Their rings are sketched out and designed using 3D modeling software. Their collaborators in New York then use 3D printing technology to print wax prototypes of their designs. Plaster is then used to create a mould of the prototype and the wax is melted out.

Your chosen metal is poured into the mould and allowed to set. The plaster is broken away, and your piece comes to life by being carefully cleaned and hand polished. 
 

MADE TO ORDER

Each piece is made to order just for you. Kate & Kole hope to get your order to you as soon as possible, but during busy periods it can take up to 3 weeks for production. For an update on your order please contact us.

Handling & Care

The best way to care for your Kate & Kole Jewellery

Jewellery pieces should not rub up against each other, other types of metal or any harsh surfaces as they will scratch and wear. They also shouldn’t take too much weight or force. Try and avoid harsh chemicals from coming into contact with your jewellery.

It’s a great idea to store your precious jewellery in small boxes or pouches when not being worn to help keep it clean and prevent it from being scratched. All jewellery purchased from Kate & Kole come in small pouch which is perfect for this.

Clean your solid jewellery with a mild soap and water, then pat dry with a soft cloth. For more stubborn dirt, use a cleaner designed for gold or silver use.

A gold or silver polishing cloth does a lovely job of bringing your jewellery back to new.

Care for your jewellery by limiting exposure and contact with chemicals, perspiration, rubber, chlorinated water, or any substances which contain sulfur. Direct sunlight also causes jewellery to tarnish, so be sure to take off your pieces before you go swimming and sunbathing.

Kate & Kole now offer gold plated jewellery. They only offer this for earrings and necklaces as they have found the plating to be to delicate for rings. It is so important that your plated jewellery doesn't get wet, or sprayed with perfume.


Choose Your Size

When ordering a ring from Kate & Kole, you can use this sizing chart to make sure you order the correct size.

If you are unsure about your size we recommend a Medium as this will most likely fit one of your fingers. If ordering a midi ring (worn halfway down your finger), we recommend a XXS or XS. For your middle finger a S/M or M is best. For a thumb or index finger L or XL usually fits.
