KAVANT & SHARART STARTED BY AWARD-WINNING COUPLE, NUTTAPON (KENNY) & SHAR-LINN IS A FINE JEWELRY BRAND TAILORED TO MEET THE DISCERNING NEEDS OF THE STYLE SOPHISTICATE. THE CORE TO KAVANT & SHARART'S AESTHETICS AND PHILOSOPHY IS A PIECE OF JEWELRY SHOULD NOT ONLY SATISFY THE WEARER'S NEED TO WEAR SOMETHING CHARMING, BUT ALSO HER DESIRE FOR SOMETHING ORIGINAL THAT HIGHLIGHTS HER PERSONALITY.
The couple met in 2004 at the University of Wisconsin- Madison where Kenny first exposed Shar-Linn to the world of jewelry. Having grown up in a fine jewelry store with a jeweler father and a goldsmith grandfather, Kenny's passion for design was inevitable. Upon graduation, the couple moved to California. While Kenny attended the GIA, Shar-Linn pursued the financial sector until she finally succumbed to the temptation and decided to follow Kenny's path.
In 2011, the pair tied the knot and felt that it was time to take their designs to the next level. Today, the couple lives between Bangkok and Singapore and often travels around the region to gain inspiration for their contemporary collection.
The unique contrast in inspirations somehow allows for a natural juxtaposition of geometric lines and subtle curves. Kenny’s avant-garde style coupled with Shar-Linn’s fascination with the Art Deco period and Oriental arts allowed the duo to weave their design inspirations.
The eclectic style of Art Deco inspires Shar-Linn who sought to infuse traditions with new life to create modern styles whilst Kenny’s infinite love for nature especially the sea gives him endless inspirations and uncountable creative ideas. Their combined inspiration brings about a healthy balance for the brand.
Since its launch Kavant & Sharart has been recognized by publications such as, The New York Times, The Financial Times, W Magazine, GIA, WWD and has been worn by celebrities such as Katy Perry, Hilary Duff, Adriana Lima, Miranda Lambert, Gabrielle Union. The couple also recently won the debuting award at the 2016 Couture Show.
