DESIGNER/FRIEND since 2003
Today, you can only find a handful of jewelers in the country that practice the classical Italian lost art of fabrication, without using any waxes or molds. Most pieces designed at Kathleen Dughi Jewelers are estate-quality, one-of-a-kind creations made in Mill Valley, California with platinum, 22 karat and 18 karat yellow gold and the finest gems handpicked from every corner of the globe. In May 2007, Kathleen lost her battle with breast cancer. She never lost her passion for her work, designing up until her last days. Today, the company continues her legacy in the capable hands of her son, Oliver. Master goldsmiths continue to fabricate magnificent works of art, maintaining the integrity and methods that are the signature of Kathleen Dughi.
