Modern Love Jewellery
Kat Wilkinson was born with a fascination for every magical detail of the world around her—especially stones. As she grew up, her artistic nature flourished and eventually led to a photography degree from Sheridan College and work as a photographer, but the love of beautiful stones never went away.
She trained with the Canadian Gemmological Association, graduated with honours, won an award for highest achievement and was invited to be a fellow of the CGA in 2003 (and now has the letters FCGmA after her name). She quickly also became a certified diamond grader with HRD Antwerp and coloured stone and pearl grader through the GIA (Gemological Institute of America).
Kat’s design flair, coupled with her gemmological expertise, are, of course, vital to MLJ’s bespoke jewellery creation, but clients also appreciate her skilful metalsmithing. She learned the skill first at Toronto’s famous applied arts institution George Brown College back in 2003, and honed it through the classic artisanal combination of self-teaching and private tuition.
The core of Modern Love Jewellery is working with our clients on projects both large (bespoke wedding rings) or small (a broken prong repair) at our showroom in Burlington, Ontario (about 40 minutes from Toronto).
