Jewelry Inspired by the City & Sea

Inspired by where the city meets the sea, Cat McCadden transforms oceanic forms into an extension of her modern and sophisticated style. Wearing a piece of GRACE GOW jewelry feels like you are truly entwined with the spirit of the place that inspired it­­­—the beach. Sandy dunes of the East coast or rocky hardscapes of the Pacific Northwest coast provide the original forms for the rings, necklaces and earrings that contain captivating and intricate details. Exquisitely simple, some say.

The designer looked for a piece of jewelry during the summer that her daughter was born. She wanted to incorporate a special rough gemstone, but also express her own personal style. Unable to find anything unique, she decided to fabricate a barnacle ring with a four-prong setting and a delicate shank. Cat created the BARNACLE ring and the collection has grown from there, now including solid 18K gold KNUCKLE stud earrings, crab CLAW pendants and the dramatic OYSTER cuff.



“The feeling I strive to create for my customers is a ‘it’s summer somewhere’ sensibility, one that will make them feel both free and strong the moment they put on my jewelry, no matter what they’re wearing.”


Handcrafted in Seattle, GRACE GOW’s unisex fine jewelry and wedding rings in gold, rose gold, platinum, silver and bronze are available through and at select retailers.
