4 cool jewelry brands from Georgia: KHOSHTRIK
“Khoshtrik” is the childhood nickname of Tamara Khoshtaria, the founder of the brand. The history of the brand really resembles a children’s fairy tale, where Nino Eliava acted as a fairy godmother – it was the creator of More is Love who became the first buyer of Tamara’s jewelry. Khoshtaria’s designs reflect her work as a graphic artist: strict geometry, polished metal to a shine, playing with proportions, light and shadow. Our favorite of the latest models are sterling silver stud earrings linked with a thin long chain.
Natia x Lako
Natia x Lako is a design duo of Natia Khutsishvili and Lako Bukia whose creations are worn by Gigi Hadid, Priyanka Chopra and Kendall Jenner. The brand’s feature is its own bestiary in silver and gold: Chinese dragons, cobras, lions and crocodiles. To everyone who is looking for their totem animal and at the same time a stylish accent accessory.
Imagine the surrealism of Salvador Dali, slightly seasoned with ethnic motifs – you will get fabulous works by Lika Goglidze. Before launching the brand in 2017, the girl studied design and art for a long time in Florence, Milan and Vienna. The fundamental base determined her approach to work. Liya jewelry seems to be ancient artifacts or family heirlooms: handmade, the finest engraving, careful processing of natural minerals – we especially like models with pearls and colored enamel.
A pioneer who paved the way for other jewelry brands from Georgia on the world stage – Natia Chkhartishvili and Tamara Svanidze. The Georgian brand is only formally – in fact, the girls created the brand in London and insist that Eshvi is from the UK. The designers’ works whimsically combine references to the art of the 20th century and ancient customs: even the name of the brand is translated from Georgian as “fang”, and animal fangs amulets are considered one of the most ancient jewelry. But if you don’t delve into reading the meanings, then Eshvi first of all are great accessories for every taste: the brand’s collection coexists with bright – almost like works of pop art – earrings in the spirit of the 80s, art deco geometry and a tribute to the latest fashion, “naive” beaded jewelry.
