the story of
by kariné is a ﬁne jewellery brand which was established in 2001. The lady behind it is Karin Eensaar, an internationally certiﬁed gemmologist with an FGA diploma. After graduating from her studies at the London Gemmological Association and Gem Testing Laboratory of Great Britain, she practised for a number of years at the Antwerp birch exchange.
What makes her brand signature unique is the handwriting, which starts from the gem itself – for example, a large baroque pearl or an intensely colourful precious stone or diamond. The gem dictates almost everything: nature has already done half the job. The brand’s handwriting is bold and strong but still feminine – for women with character.
by kariné has two lines: One of reproducible jewellery and another of one of a kind pieces (mostly large baroque South Sea pearls measuring ca 20-45 mm). The materials used are predominantly precious metals and stones, but the designer also loves experimenting with titanium and carbon graphite, a series of which was bought by Bucherer in 2010.
The brand has its own boutique in Tallinn, Estonia (Suur-Karja 2), and on 26 April a second studio was opened in Geneva, Switzerland with local designer Gregorie E (Rue Etienne Dumont 6-8). by kariné is also focused on developing and combining investment diamond portfolios and strategies.
