“The Retrouvaí woman has a collector’s mentality and believes that ‘everyday’ jewelry doesn’t need to be basic. She mixes the old with the new and takes chances in fashion, without ever taking it too seriously. I like to say that my line embodies a ‘whimsical eccentricity’ — a dose of fun that still maintains an heirloom-quality — that helps a woman tell her unique story.”
Retrouvaí (Reh-tro-v-eye) is derived from the French proverb ‘Retrovailles,’ defined as the joy of reconnecting with something from one’s past. This notion of wistful affection for time gone by speaks to Kirsty’s love of vintage treasures, but also to the idea that jewelry is passed down through the generations, picking up lifetimes of stories along the way.
