Founded by Morrie Knopp in 1999, US brand Beverley K has developed a reputation for vintage-inspired fine jewellery designs studded with diamonds and precious gemstones.
Having increased its presence in the United States, Beverley K is now turning its attention to international markets to grow its customer base and showcase its award-winning collections.
Here we discover more about the brand and hear from Morrie Knopp on why she’s returning to International Jewellery London for the second consecutive year…
The history of Beverley K
The multi-award winning Beverley K Collection is known for vintage-inspired designs, attention to detail, full customisation services and old-world craftsmanship. Designs are available in 14ct and 18ct white, rose, and yellow gold, as well as platinum.
Since the company owns its design and fabrication operations, it is able to consistently meet design and service standards. The San Diego-based company offers an extensive line of engagement mounts, bands, earrings, pendants and bracelets to fine jewellery retailers throughout the United States and internationally.
Success in the United States
Beverley K is currently positioned as the industry leader in vintage-inspired designs in the American market, especially when it comes to hand milgrain and French-cut stones. The brand’s Bridal Rings collection has proved particularly successful in the US market and has won a number of awards, including the Bridal Design Award at the Centurion show in Phoenix, Arizona.
Also among its best-sellers are the diamond-set Stack Bands – a fresher take on eternity bands – and combinations of rose gold and morganite.
