Karl Karter is a contemporary jewellery brand birthed in London's Jewellery Quarter, Hatton Garden EC1. Karl is a traditionally trained diamond mounter who has been working in the industry for the past 20 years. Having worked as an apprentice for several years, followed by a position at a top Mayfair Jewellers, he launched his own brand in 2005. Now based at The London Rocks Workshop in Hatton Garden, Karl works in the studio alongside other upcoming designers.
Handmade, classic techniques combined with the latest, setting and production technology make his pieces striking in design and craftsmanship. Karl's signature style takes influence from geometric, Art-Deco forms that create striking and balanced pieces. Traditional sentiment leads his designs, whilst being heavily influenced by Brutalist architecture and Avant-Garde fashion. The amalgamation of fine metals paired with unusual cut gemstones create his trademark statement jewellery.
