KJ Tells All!

The Vault’s Founder-Curator-Gemologist talks playing dress-up, Diamonds for Brunch, and why she’s revealing her wardrobe-building strategies to the world.


Q: So where did your lifelong passion for gems and jewelry come from?
KJ: I've always adored dress-up, since I was six years old, playing with my Nana. One of my happiest childhood memories is the two of us buying little baubles and lipsticks, dressing up in our fancy clothes, and sitting on the floor playing with our costume jewelry. I still love nothing more than expressing myself through jewelry and sharing that joy with other people.

Q: Dress-up with your Nana sounds a lot like The Vault Nantucket!

KJ: Right! We try to get people nestled into jewel-toned velvet chairs, playing dress-up with us! I wanted The Vault to be inviting, colorful, and comfortable: the opposite of the classic, unapproachable jewelry store experience. Most people don’t feel comfortable walking into a jewelry store and asking if they can try on three different pairs of earrings. You don’t know where to begin and it’s hard to gain enough experience to really find out what you like. A huge part of The Vault philosophy is encouraging everybody who is curious to come in and experience jewelry. This is our playtime, it's our self-expression. It's something special we can do for ourselves.

“I wanted The Vault to be inviting, colorful, and comfortable: the opposite of the classic, unapproachable jewelry store experience.”

Q: So, The Vault is making couture jewelry more approachable?
KJ: Yes, for sure! I'll never forget a mother and daughter who walked into The Vault Nantucket store. They put up their hands and were like, “We can't afford anything in here. We just want to look.” I told them, “I'm so happy you're here,” then spent the next hour and a half showing them every single piece in the store. I told them every single designer story. They tried on jewelry with me. And at the end, the mom said, “I have to buy a piece of jewelry from you because I need to know that I can continue this experience after I leave the store. This has just changed my entire perspective on everything.” I knew it was a stretch for them to buy a little piece, but my customers felt that connection to The Vault, and the art, and they never wanted to forget that experience. It felt like a gift to me, too!

KJ’S ANCHOR PICK

The White Gold Edit

Clean, classic, and cool.

“White gold is definitely having a moment! People often go with white to match their platinum engagement rings, though you certainly don’t have to! Wear whatever makes you feel beautiful.”

KJ’S ANCHOR PICK

The Yellow Gold Edit

Sunny, sexy, and sophisticated.

KJ’S ANCHOR PICK

Everyday Earrings

Katherine Jetter spills on her most essential earrings, from solitaire studs to sexy sculptures.

“For a signature everyday earring, most people start with a diamond solitaire stud. I can also propose alternatives that I love, that give you that same effect with a little bit more personality.”
