Deriving its name from a Sardinian amulet that protects newborns against the “evil eye,” KOKKU combines traditional Sardinian, Greek-Roman, and Byzantine designs with Persian and Arabic influences to create timeless jewellery within a modern sensibility.

The intricate pieces, made entirely by hand, showcase the beauty and antique art of filigree, one of the oldest art forms developed by man. Filigree involves the arrangement of finely interwoven gold or silver threads in vinelike patterns, a labour-intensive skill requiring a level of complexity, patience, and precision that can only be achieved by a highly practiced hand.

In crafting its pieces through this delicate process, KOKKU draws on the experience and knowledge handed down through generations in the family-run business. Fill a loved one’s heart with positive energy with a one-of-a-kind piece enriched with history and grace.
