Treasure chest – Exclaimed Kate brings a timeless touch to your Valentine’s Day gifting
When you think about some of your most treasured possessions, it makes sense that they deserve to be stored somewhere that is both safe and beautiful. Whether it’s an heirloom ring that was handed down, a little shell you brought home from a beautiful holiday or your favourite necklace, the sentimental pieces that we collect throughout our lives really should be kept with care – but that’s no reason to lock them away in a vault. Exclaimed Kate is a Brisbane-based brand that has just launched a stunning range of unique jewellery boxes designed to store your trinkets and treasures while looking damn good doing it.
The Exclaimed Kate story starts in Brisbane with the brand’s namesake Kate Smith and her husband. An industrial designer by trade, Kate’s partner would often craft her one-off items that would go on to become her most beloved items. When he once asked her what she wanted next as a gift, she landed on the most all-encompassing keepsake of all – a place to store her treasure. After a months-long process of developing, sourcing and refining, Exclaimed Kate’s debut jewellery box has finally been released to the public – and the results are stunning.
When it comes to the design and manufacture of the Exclaimed Kate jewellery boxes, you really can see the care and attention to detail. The seamless design is crafted from the finest materials available – the base is CNC machined from aluminium while the lid is a large solid piece of natural quartz, creating a beautiful contrast between the natural world and the precision of machining processes. As is the nature of quartz, each piece is totally unique with its own vein patterns and mineral deposits, adding to the bespoke and timeless quality of the box. This first drop of products is just the beginning – Exclaimed Kate has some exciting things in the works for the rest of 2019, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled.
