TORY & KO. were honoured when four jewellery pieces were selected by the Palace Staff for the Duchess of Cambridge - Kate Middleton - prior to her Royal Tour of New Zealand in 2014.
Victoria and Kirstin have created pieces for the BAFTAS & OSCARS red carpet events, been asked to create specialty pieces to be worn in films by actresses Robin Tunny (Paparazzi) and Rachel Weisz (The Light Between Oceans), had their jewellery worn by actresses Evangeline Lily (Hobbit) and most recently Thomasin McKenzie Harcourt at the Premiere of the dramatic and moving film The Changeover (Directed by Stuart McKenzie and Miranda Harcourt).
A commission for the Governor-General of New Zealand for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth's 90th Birthday was also a highlight where the jewellers created a rose gold and diamond brooch which transformed a beautiful pounamu carving of a fern.
Royal interest in TORY & KO. is not the first time the luxury jeweller has caught the eye of the fashionable and famous. TORY & KO. has also been worn by Olympians Kayla Imrie and Emma Robinson, Silver Ferns legend Maria Folau (nee Tutaia), Royal New Zealand Ballet Dancer Abigale Boyle, actress Inge Rademeyer, hair and make-up artist Hil Cook, top model Amber Valletta and their list of Celebrity clients continues to grow.
