Kate Hubley (aka K8)
Designer, Gemologist, Goldsmith
Owned by award-winning jewelry designer & goldsmith Kate Hubley, K8 Jewelry is a Montreal-based design house that creates bold and sophisticated fine jewelry collections for women with an eye for edgy elegance and the spirit of a warrior queen.
K8's designs are inspired by an attitude that celebrates life - an optimism that taps into the fearlessness and strength of a woman who lives her own truth and embraces life’s challenges - all the while preserving her playful elegance.
Let K8 create that special, meaningful piece of jewelry for you
A strong believer in symbolism and the power of wearing jewelry that reflects your personal philosophy, Kate would be honoured to work with you to create your special piece of jewelry - whether it be a custom-made or bespoke design, your wedding rings, a surprise for someone special or a gift for yourself.
Custom Design - Be Part of the Creative Process
Anything is possible.
Imagine having jewelry designed by an award-winning jewelry designer that is unique to you. Maybe you have an idea for jewelry dancing around in your head. Or maybe you are madly in love and have decided to pop the question with a one-of-a-kind engagement ring.
Kate is always available to answer your questions about custom-design jewelry. She will walk you through every step of the process, find the very best diamond or gemstones for your budget and work with you to bring your custom-design jewelry to life.
Committed to Responsible Sourcing
As a gemologist, Kate proudly works with gem dealers who travel the world seeking out the finest, ethically mined gems. Similarly, Kate also offers you gold that is certified 100% recycled in Canada/USA without the use of mercury or cyanide. So you can feel good about the K8 Jewelry you wear or give as a gift.
Kate's mission is to make you smile.
Whether it’s because you love one of her fine jewelry collections or because K8 has created the most-perfect custom design bespoke jewelry for just you… or because you are a retailer carrying our jewelry lines and we have gone the extra mile to make you and your customers really happy with stunning jewelry quality and great service.
Yes, K8's line is available for wholesale and she is always excited to work with new retailers. Linesheets available upon request.
K8 is also an award-winning writer, with an exciting 20-year career in Montreal’s fast-paced advertising industry – which she recently left to pursue her passion for design and gemmology full time.
