Kokkino

Founded by jewellery designer Melanie Ankers in 2003, Kokkino has since established itself as a reliable source of elegantly simple and wearable, contemporary jewellery. Each collection is created by hand in our Worcester workshop, with the emphasis being on high-quality workmanship and timeless designs. We are also careful to cater for every budget and include pieces ranging from affordable to aspirational.

A Silversmithing and Jewellery graduate from the Jewellery School at UCE in Birmingham, Melanie makes use of sterling silver, 22ct gold plating, oxidisation and vitreous enamels, to produce a sophisticated range of colour palettes and surface textures for Kokkino. Her love of colour, working with silver and enamels and time spent in Greece led her to choose the company name Kokkino, meaning ‘red’ in Greek.

“Increasingly I'm becoming fascinated with the rhythm and cadence given to a piece by repetition of a simple form, and how colour can flow through a piece and transform it utterly.” The pieces are incredibly tactile and often incorporate mobile elements, allowing the wearer to interact with the jewellery and bring it to life. Not surprisingly, they are a popular choice for the catwalk too and have appeared at The Clothes Show Live and The Jewellery Show, most recently.

Kokkino has stockists throughout the UK and Ireland; from the Isle of Wight to the Shetland Isles, throughout Europe and the USA.
