Also got a few more of the earrings. Please excuse the piece of fuzz stuck to one of them.

You have such unique and exquisite taste in jewelries!!! I've been wanting to own a piece of Kataoka forever but haven't seen or touch one irl so I haven't made my move to order one online yet. Your huge collection will become heirloom pieces for sure.

@Crystal_Dreams I was chatting with Anis earlier tonight and sent him this thread. He asked if you would email him so he can look into what happened.

You can find an email address on the Kataoka site if you’re interested. :)

I will happily have a chat with Anis! It was all a bit unfortunate as it was meant to be my brother’s ering purchase, but it all ended well and he purchased something lovely from Cvb instead.

I got a reply from Anis who was lovely, offering to honour the initial quoted price for my next piece, which I replied to a few days ago. No reply yet though from them again hmm... will keep you updated on how this goes!

Thank you for starting this thread! I love the Kataoka designs. Do you know if their store in Tokyo is open to the public or do you need to make an appointment?

It is certainly open to public! :)

Still awaiting a reply right now :( it has been 6 days since I replied and so far, nothing.
Just sent another email to see if they got my first one...

I hope you get a reply soon. Tokyo and the rest of Japan have been having a record heat wave this past week and sadly dozens of people have died so far. I hear the government is telling people to avoid outdoor activities but I don't know if this is impacting businesses or just schools.

Yep, no appointment needed though it's in a quiet, mostly residential neighborhood.

Sorry you're not getting a reply from Anis. I know he's crazy busy and sometimes it takes a while for him to get back to me too.

@Crystal_Dreams and @JPie WOW thank you for introducing a new designer, I love Kataoka's aesthetic :cheeky::love: Do either of you know if they do custom with an outside stone? Was in Japan earlier this year and I wish I had heard of Kataoka before I went up! I was in Ginza for 30 hours for a stopover

They certainly do work with outside stones and custom orders. Where are you at? Kataoka is stocked in certain shops in the US as well if that helps.

@Wanaka they will work with your stone, but only to make a brand new style for you. For example, they won't make the crown ring using your own diamonds.

I'm in New Zealand, so fat chance of coming across anyone retailing Kataoka in my neck of the woods ;( But I'm glad they will do custom!

This sounds great, on my other thread I have some inspo and what I'm thinking of is not exactly the same as one of their current styles. Excited but a little nervous about the cost too.

Wow lovely pieces! Thanks for sharing your Kataoka! They've always been on my lust list. I love how the pieces give off an artisanal vibe and are so delicate and unique.

Kataoka is open in NYC! I tried to get as many bling photos as I could, but it was hard to photograph through the glass cases.
