BY KIM – Jewelry Designed by Women for Women

20 years ago, three women were pondering about the question why it was so often men that created jewelry to be worn by women. Kim-Eva Wempe, Anja Heiden and Catherine Plouchard found the right answer to this situation. After countless meetings and careful consideration, they created the BY KIM jewelry brand. A unique brand designed by women for women that stands for exciting and elegant pieces of jewelry.

Helioro BY KIM – Endless Elegance


In 2000, Kim-Eva Wempe took the bold step to launch a Wempe-own jewelry brand and created BY KIM, an elegant companion for sophisticated women. The brand’s lines, as for example Helioro, stand out by their compelling aesthetics. Kim-Eva Wempe loves the line‘s iconic design and appreciates above all its well-achieved balance between excitingly new and timelessly elegant.

Sensual BY KIM – the Powerful World of the Senses


Creative Director Catherine Plouchard gave life to the trio’s ideas. The BY KIM creations include exciting statements as well as delicate companions for every day. To develop the Sensual BY KIM line was a matter truly dear to the heart of Catherine Plouchard – she didn’t only focus on an outstanding quality of the materials and a timeless design vocabulary, but also wanted to achieve a unique wearing comfort.
