Kokku is the result of a young couple who made a pledge to help preserve, protect, and revitalize a family jewelry workshop that goes back generations in Sardinia, Italy. The art of filigree was brought to Sardinia by the Phoenicians, over 4000 years ago. The Sardinians adopted the technique to make amulets, for both men and women, which became integral to their native dress. Filigree is basically the art of twisting gold or silver threads into fantastic designs. Each of our pieces is made of 18k gold, by hand, by artisans in this family workshop who are endlessly patient and skilled. These are traditional designs that are destined to be passed onto future generations.
