AS A 100% WOMAN-OWNED-AND-OPERATED BRAND, EVOCATEUR IS FOCUSED ON GIVING THEIR CLIENTS AND CUSTOMERS AN ART-DRIVEN JEWELRY EXPERIENCE. EVERYTHING THEY OFFER IS HANDMADE IN THE USA, COMPLETE WITH 22K GOLD LEAF AND A WIDE RANGE OF ARTFUL IMAGERY (THEY EVEN OFFER CUSTOM WORK, TOO!).
A letter from Evocateur's founder, Barbara Innamorati:
It started with The Kiss...
It was years ago during my time as a student in London that I fell under the spell of Gustav Klimt’s “The Kiss,” the famous work on display at the National Gallery. It was those flecks of gold that glinted from every aspect of the painting that would stick with me, well up until I started Evocateur in 2009, an endeavor founded on my passion for gold leaf.
The name Evocateur means “evocative” in French, or more precisely, the person doing the evoking. I found that whenever I wore our jewelry, it would evoke comments, connections and conversations. It seemed like the perfect description for our designs, and so our brand was born, and continues to grow right from our Connecticut studio, where everything is designed and manufactured.
I want women to feel stylish, unique and special when they wear a piece of Evocateur jewelry. I also hope that each piece represents something meaningful to them: a good memory, a gift from somebody, or the reminder of someone important in their life. I hope our jewelry evokes a sense of love and celebrates life’s joys.
