Kate & Kole was born in 2015 out of a collaboration between two good friends, Sara and Maddy. With a goal to create something that they both loved, what started as a side-project from a home studio in Newcastle and has evolved into a full-fledged Australian born ring concierge and jewellery brand now comprising of eight jewellery collections and a custom jewellery design service.
Encapsulating classic style reimagined, Kate & Kole offers timeless fine jewellery centred around quality metals, diamonds and stones. Whether you’re looking for an everyday piece or a custom-created engagement ring, we would love to work with you to start your Kate & Kole collection.
Visit Kate & Kole's Newcastle Jewellery Store
Located in Islington, Newcastle, our sunny seaside space has recently opened for consultations and shopping events.
Whether you want to have a browse of fine jewellery in real-life, learn more about our workshop, or have a chat about creating a custom made jewellery piece or remodelling an old, visiting in person is the best place to start.
If you already have something in mind, you can contact us to make an appointment.
We are open to the public every other Saturday as part of The Fernery activation. Follow us on Instagram to see when our next showroom opening is.
Custom Engagement Rings & Fine Jewellery
Designed in Newcastle and cast in Sydney, our jewellery is created by a combination of modern technology and traditional jewellery practises. Each piece is finished carefully by hand, and every design is carefully considered.
We value making our pieces in Australia and have decided that it is important to us, even if it comes with a higher price tag. All of our stones are sustainably sourced, and we use lab grown diamonds to ensure premium quality — while making sure they’re conflict-free and ethically sourced.
Here at Kate & Kole, we believe that the lifespan of our jewellery goes far beyond the purchase. Therefore, we offer several services throughout the entire timeline: from browsing to maintenance.
Complimentary Jewellery Cleaning
A yearly touch up can go a long way in the lifetime of your jewellery, and our complimentary cleaning will leave your piece feeling brand new. For more information, please contact us, specifying the piece you are seeking help caring for.
We’ve partnered up with the jewellery insurers at Q Report to give you peace of mind with your favourite Kate & Kole pieces. In the unfortunate event that your jeweller is lost, stolen, up to 125% of the agreed value can be covered, and you might even be eligible for a replacement from Kate & Kole. On top of that, you get the support of us and Q Report every step of the way, to make a bad situation feel a whole lot easier.
If you would like to chat to us about insuring a piece that you have previously purchased or a new piece send us an email and we can go through some finer details, or get a quick quote by clicking here.
Engagement Ring Resizing:If you do get your ring and it’s too small or too big, don’t fret. We offer a complimentary ring resizing with all engagement ring orders, so it’s not the end of the world if it doesn’t fit perfectly. After all, the meaning behind it is what matters — and after it’s resized, we’re sure it’ll be a perfect fit.
Bespoke Jewellery:At the end of the day, anyone who is after a piece that’s a little bit different or wants to tell a story should consider bespoke jewellery. Though there is undoubtedly more of a process involved, you’ll feel so connected to the piece because you’ve been a part of its creation. And on top of the design elements, with Kate & Kole you can guarantee you’re piece will also be of the utmost quality.
Ring Sizing Kit:If you’re shopping for an engagement ring but uncertain of the size, we’ll happily send you a ring sizing kit free of charge to ensure you get the right fit.
Turning Your Old Gold Into New:You may have some gold pieces in your collection that could be recycled and turned into a new piece. We offer a buy back service where we can recycle your jewellery that you don't wear any more. We will buy back the pure gold in the pieces and depending on the carat this will be higher or lower. We then take the ring that is to be recycled and sell it back to our caster in Sydney. We receive a credit in your name that we put towards your new piece. You may find you're able to cover a large amount of the cost of a new piece just by trading in some old pieces.
A Note from the Kate & Kole Jewellery Designers
We (Sara & Maddy) started Kate & Kole because we wanted to create pieces of jewellery that deserved to be made and would last a lifetime.
We combine traditional jewellery practises with modern technologies to help bring your designs to life. Aside from wearing, shooting and designing our jewellery, our favourite thing to do is to help our customers create a ring that is absolutely perfect for them, not only in design but also in budget and information.
We love teaching you about the process, where the stones come from, the difference between a natural and lab grown diamond—the more you know when you leave our studio, the better we feel our relationship is.
This is why we love seeing our customers come back for their wedding rings, their bridesmaid’s gifts, a little something for the mother of the groom and then even a wedding day surprise.
We offer a bespoke design service, which can be held in our new jewellery store and studio space in sunny seaside Newcastle or via phone. It might seem crazy to make one of the biggest purchases of your life over the phone, but we have helped many Australian and international customers through the journey remotely. From that initial conversation to drawings, quotes, photos videos and then the final FaceTime reveal, our system for collaborating on projects from afar covers everything you’d expect from a face-to-face meeting.
We also offer an engagement ring design kit, which allows you to try on different bands and see replica stone shapes and sizes in real life, from the comfort of your couch.
We would love to help you create a piece of jewellery you will treasure forever.
Don’t hesitate to get in touch,
Sara & Maddy
