What sets Karry Gallery apart from other jewellery boutiques?
I have loved fashion ever since I was a little girl; jewellery holds an extra special place in my heart. I think the Karry Gallery radiates that passion. I take extreme pride in hunting down original, diverse and rare pieces. This extensive search results in the offering of an eclectic mix of unique pieces from all over the world that you wouldn't be able to find anywhere else. To compliment this selection of worldwide finds and vintage pieces, I became intrigued in creating jewellery myself, so I started my namesake label, Karry Berreby which allowed me to develop my passion for jewellery even further. When clients enter my boutique, I hope they are slightly spellbound at first, but learn to trust my taste and sense for exclusive individuality at the same time.
What kind of clients does Karry Gallery attract?
We are lucky to have a very international clientele. Most of them are women and they all seem to have an attraction to elegant and feminine jewellery. Tourism is, of course, essential for every boutique when it comes to enlarging your clientele, but we are fortunate enough to have some very loyal customers that will pass by frequently. I believe travelling to be key when one is searching for original, beautiful and new things. You'll get inspired by the culture of the country, the fashion you witness, the labels you discover. I travel a lot myself, and that's where I'll personally find most of my inspiration and unique pieces.
Jewellery can be timeless as well as trend-driven, what is your approach?
Fashion trends aren't taken into account when I'm looking for or creating new jewellery pieces. I have a love for beautiful things, and that's my measure of whether or not a piece works. Trends can be useful though because they continue to inspire us to look for something new, something original and different. When it comes to jewellery, trends don't need to be decided for you; you can change them along with your mood. If I were limited to wearing one piece of jewellery for the rest of my life, it would be a pair of earrings. Someone else might prefer a ring or a bracelet. That's what jewellery is about, individuality, personal taste and a distinction of what is important to you. For both men and women.
