Hi, I'm Kait! I design custom fine jewelry for people looking for completely one-of-a-kind pieces that will fit their lifestyle while also capturing their unique story, style or memories.
As fellow a fashion-lover, Pinterest addict and woman with an affinity for well-made, clothes and accessories, I know how frustrating it can be to search for hours and visit countless stores trying to find that perfect piece. The piece that fits right, speaks to your individual style AND won't fall apart after 2 wears.
In the era of fast fashion, fake online reviews and product brands who are better at marketing than they are at providing a quality product, I've come to realize how easy it is to fall victim to some pretty pictures and marketing, only to be disappointed when you see the product in-person.
When I design with my clients, I feel like I'm bringing them the answer they've been looking for... a quality, thoughtful piece that captures their style without the designer price tag or icky sales tactics of a big box store.
My interest in jewelry began with an hourly wage, sales position and ended up completely changing my life. I started in the showroom of my family's jewelry store in 2013 as a salesperson. It wasn't long after I started working there that I realized how much sentiment and meaning jewelry could hold.
It wasn't just a materialistic show of status to our customers (ok, maybe it was to a few of them if we're being honest, haha!), but rather a piece of jewelry that signified something important to them....a meaningful, quality piece that could be passed down to the next generation. I began to meet grandmothers who had obtained many pieces throughout the years and were now ready to reset their collection into meaningful pieces for their grandchildren and parents who had inherited diamonds from their parents and were now giving that diamond to THEIR kids to use in engagement rings.
These pieces were so much more than something with a price tag connected to it... they were stories, they were love, they were memories.
For me, that is what jewelry is all about.
Throughout my years in the jewelry industry, I've been blessed to learn from 3rd generation jewelers and goldsmiths who've been designing and building fine jewelry, by hand...many of whom have been doing this for more than 30 years and one who has worked as a goldsmith for over 50 years!
It was with that experience and education that I started Kait Noelle in 2019. Since then I have helped many people create thoughtful pieces that will be loved and cherished for generations to come.
I am also proud to say that I recently won The Knot's 2022 "Best of Weddings" and Wedding Wire's 2022 "Couples' Choice Awards".
