PLAITLY was founded in 2017 by Caroline Quinio, an architect and classical pianist. As a jewelry designer, Caroline's mission is to create meaningful jewelry that embraces experimental design and sustainable practices while maintaining a contemporary, yet timeless, aesthetic. Caroline believes that jewelry design should be thoughtful, environmentally responsible, and beautiful to look at. PLAITLY’s work explores the ever-evolving relationship between virtual and physical processes to redefine what it means for jewelry to be “handcrafted” in a digital age. PLAITLY jewelry has been featured in various fashion and design magazines, including ELLE, ELLE Decor, Harper's Bazaar, Vogue, GQ, Glamour, House of Coco and Surface Magazine. PLAITLY is internationally recognized and has exhibited work in Art Basel Miami, the Fuorisalone during Milan Design Week and the Artistar Jewels Contemporary Jewelry Exhibition during Milan Fashion Week in Italy. PLAITLY has also presented various jewelry collections during New York Fashion Week and London Fashion Week. PLAITLY has appeared in local high-profile events, such as Brooklyn Designs during NYCxDESIGN, FAD (Fashion, Art, Design) Market and the Industry City Holiday Market hosted by WantedDesign and Dwell magazine. Founder Caroline Quinio holds a Masters degree in Architecture from Columbia University in New York City.
