ABOUT KATE GOLD
Starting as a blog in 2010, Kate began sharing her latest jewellery finds and her most coveted gem wishlists.
As her collection grew, so did the interest in her blog posts, and as Kate hunted for more pieces, she realised she couldn't keep everything she found to herself. Selling the odd piece from her personal collection, Kate realised that she could really do her bit to save so many precious pieces from being sold for scrap or being lost and forgotten.
And so our mission began to save treasures of the past, one piece at a time.
Formally known as Heart of Solid Gold, Kate rebranded in 2018 to Kate Gold, a name that represents her aim of personally curating antique and vintage jewellery and accessories.
Since Kate was a little girl, she's loved collecting anything small and shiny. Her love of collecting small pebbles and shells whilst on holiday grew with her throughout the years - spurred on by being able to play dress up with her mother and grandmother's jewellery boxes.
Fast forward a few years and Kate began forming her own jewellery collection - starting with silver and semi precious rings and bangles, she quickly began to discover gold Victorian and Georgian pieces and her love of all things old and sentimental really began to take hold.
Today she spends her days along with her mother scouring antique markets and auctions across the globe, searching for hidden gems to share in our online collection.
ABOUT THE TEAM
Although Kate Gold is a small business, owned and run by Kate herself, it's a team effort behind the scenes. Kate Gold is a family affair, with Kate's mother, Julie, supporting with everything from sourcing new stock to packing and shipping orders.
We also can't forget to mention Cleo, Kate's loyal assistant and general mischief maker! Overseeing all of the day to day goings on, Cleo helps out with a little bit of everything - from Post Office runs to accompanying Kate on buying trips.
You can follow Cleo's antics on Instagram using the hashtag #shopdogcleo.
We're based in the beautiful Wharfedale Valley, part of the Yorkshire Dales in the North of England.
Our rural location means Cleo is spoilt for walks, whilst we're able to work in picturesque, peaceful surroundings.
We travel across the country, and beyond, to source our pieces but being surrounded by fields and fresh air is where we feel most at home.
