You’d be hard-pressed to find anyone in the jewelry world as respected and sought-after as Katerina Perez. Gemologist, journalist, and expert, Perez has built a career from her deep love of all that glimmers and glitters. Trained at The Gemmological Association of Great Britain (GBA), London-based Perez quickly developed a cult following after the launch of her eponymous website. There, she regularly highlights up-and-coming designers, industry legends, and the trends expected to take over. Jaume Labro had the opportunity to sit down Katerina Perez and talk shop with one of the most important fixtures in the scene today.
