About Marlies Katy
The MK collection is trendy but timeless, fun but serious, big but wearable, exciting but considerate, bold but precious, sexy but sophisticated, chic but bohemian, rough but beautiful, solid but fragile, tough but elegant, sincere but mysterious, romantic but cool. In rose, yellow and white gold; with gems, diamonds and pearls coming from all parts of the world.
Marlies Katy is a gemologist and has a passion for gemstones: she is inspired by life, people, history, cultures and her travels. MK is created for the modern woman with her own individual style. We try find the most precious gemstones, diamonds, cameo’s or pearls and design the jewel around it. Every ring, pendant and earring is made by hand, so the MKpieces are all unique like you are…
