Katia Torralba is a partnership that takes pride in creating beautifully handcrafted pieces of exquisite jewellery inspired by the different cultures and scenery encountered on our travels.
We are passionate about semi-precious stones and constantly amazed by their beauty, power and properties. We believe that a piece of jewellery should be enjoyed not only for its aesthetics, but because we are drawn to the energy of the crystal.
Nowadays, we all are more aware of our relationship with our planet and there is an increasing need for our body and soul to deepen this connection with Mother Earth. Therefore, my creative process is led by the ‘Voice’ of the gemstones; each piece of jewellery being born with its own name, story and healing purpose.
May the Love which infuses all our pieces bring you Light, Healing and Peace.
My journey as a designer started at a young age, experimenting with many different materials and styles. I was born in France from Spanish descent, I studied Italian at University and then moved to London where I experienced a deeper sense of freedom in my creativity. Later, I discovered Hong Kong where I now live and traveled around Asia-Pacific, Africa and America. I believe this has enriched my designs and influenced dramatically my sense of aesthetics. It has also enhanced my fascination for the stunning beauty of Mother Earth.
I am passionate about ethnic jewellery as it deeply reflects the diversity of cultures around the world and the different manners in which people express their identity and needs in their society. I love music, arts, nature and metaphysics. I believe I have a strong connection to crystals which allows me to be their messenger and express their individuality as well as their healing abilities.
Being an artisan is always a challenge, even more so in Hong Kong as the market is dominated by mass manufactured products and luxury brands. However, Hong Kong also offers an amazing range of gemstones and pearls from all over Asia and the Pacific region which is constantly fueling my passion. I have learned so much since I arrived and I am very grateful for these challenges as they have helped me grow as a designer but also as a human being.
It is my greatest joy to show you my creations and hope that they will inspire you and bring you Love, Light and Healing.
