Prolific life experiences, an artistic legacy, and an intuitive nature led Ana-Katarina Vinkler-Petrovic to her calling as the fine jewelry designer.
A former Balkan War correspondent and the daughter of a world-renowned architect and a Whitney-awarded painter, Ana-Katarina’s witness to powerful beauty and human tragedy fired her passion for design and a deep respect for the earth and its people. This passion fuels both her dedication to designing socially conscious fine jewelry, and her gift for creating unique and personal custom designs for individual clients.
Ana-Katarina launched her own brand, AnaKatarina Eco Gioielli, in 2007 after spending 14 years in design, marketing and sales positions with fine jewelry firms in the United States and Europe. Offering both limited edition collections and custom designs for clients around the world, all AnaKatarina Eco Gioielli jewels are crafted with recycled gold, ethically mined Canadian diamonds, and fair trade gemstones.
Ana-Katarina’s designs have been featured at private exhibitions in the United States, Europe, the Middle East and Africa; and she travels extensively to meet with her custom design clients. AnaKatarina Eco Gioielli collections, meanwhile, are available at the Baak Gallery in Cambridge, Mass.
A GIA-certified designer with a degree in fine arts from Tufts University, Ana-Katarina resides in Boston, Mass. with her three daughters.
