Made in Montreal. Made in Canada.
Owned by jewelry designer & goldsmith Kate Hubley, K8 Jewelry is
a Montreal-based design house that creates bold and sophisticated
fine jewelry collections and one-of-a-kind custom designs, including
weddings rings and discreet private orders. Always with something
surprising and unexpected. Always to the highest quality standards.
“I love creating jewelry designs in precious metals with gemstones that are fun and funky – and that celebrate a love of life. My designs are happy, not so serious. BUT I take quality and craftsmanship VERY seriously. In fact, each piece of K8 designer jewelry is inspected by at least three pairs of eyes. Usually four.”
Who is K8 or Kate?
Kate (K8) Hubley is an award-winning jewelry designer and FGA gemmologist who has been exploring techniques, aesthetics and themes in jewelry design for more than 20 years.
Kate calls her work “concept jewelry” because it is just that – conceptual. Her pieces go beyond aesthetic design – virtually all can be read on a second level to reveal something about the person wearing it, a passion, an emotion or desire…
Recently, K8 began designing fine jewelry collections especially for retailers, including the VIVE non-traditional bridal jewelry collection – stay tuned for the launch!
K8 is also an award-winning writer, with an exciting 17-year career in Montreal’s fast-paced advertising industry – which she recently left to pursue her passion for design and gemmology full time.
