BACK­GROUND Parisian-born sib­lings of Rus­sian her­itage, So­nia and Katya Gay­damak founded their jew­ellery com­pany in 2009. Inspired by history, na­ture and travel, their de­signs re­volve around a hand bracelet con­cept, which emerged when Katya ac­ci­den­tally caught a chain around her palm. Katya de­signs the col­lec­tions and So­nia is a gem spe­cial­ist—both grad­u­ated from New York’s GIA. Stars in­clud­ing Alicia Keys and Salma Hayek have been seen wear­ing the sis­ters’ un­usual jew­ellery, which has been on sale in out­lets such as Mon­taigne Mar­ket and Le Bon Marché in Paris; Cou­ture­lab, Kabiri and Frost in Lon­don; var­i­ous re­tail­ers in the US, Le­banon and Kuwait; and now at Lane Craw­ford in Har­bour City.

DE­SIGN SIG­NA­TURE An­i­mals, flow­ers, leaves, art, an­tique books, mil­i­tary medals and vintage Rus­sian lace all pro­vide in­spi­ra­tion for Gay­damak bracelet de­signs.

FAVOURITE MA­TE­RI­ALS The sis­ters like to work with fine white, rose or yel­low gold, mounted with the finest pre­cious and semi-pre­cious stones.
