Catherine Canino

Catherine has been designing jewelry since
that first pasta and yarn necklace at a kitchen table
in Connecticut, 1972.
 
An insatiable obsession with fashion and design led
to a fancy art school education. Reality followed with gritty jewelry factory work and industry design gigs.
The brand began in a studio apartment on the
Upper East Side with a slightly illegal torch, a tumbler, and many late nights of hand crafting each piece.

The Inspiration
“Classics with Twist” “Modern Classics”

There is a reason why these tags are used so often…because history repeats itself, especially in the world of fashion and design. At Catherine Canino Jewelry we believe in the simplicity of a good pearl earring…with a modern edge…to wear very day.

Go-to visual candy for us includes antique jewelry, equestrian tack, nautical hardware, and vintage magazines. Our favorite stone dealer and leather tannery are the source of seasonal color palettes.
Most inspiring though, are the stylish women of all ages that wear our pieces with personal adaptation.

The Process

After inspiration strikes, it is time to get our hands dirty. Master model work occurs via the Rhino program, with revisions at the jeweler’s bench. We model and mold all of our own hardware. Our factory is located in the heart of Manhattan’s jewelry district and the process could not happen without…


The Team

We are proudly entirely handmade in NYC since 1999, way before Made in America was even a thing. A team of 20 artisans and skilled crafts people cast, assemble, solder, polish, plate, string, cement and seal each piece with love and attention to detail every day.
