Rusty Thought was created in 2002 by Ryo Katori. Initially meant for men, the collection expanded in 2007 with the addition of a line dedicated to women. Ryo and his partner have been working on these collections using traditional Japanese techniques, like "Ohaguro-Yaki" which is used in Japan to protect swords from rust.
Rusty Thought's creations derive from the "Wabi sabi," a philosophy based on the acceptance of imperfection and impermanence. The essential beauty lays hidden inside the object, revealing itself only to those who learn to appreciate it over time. The more you wear Rusty Thought's jewelry, the more beautiful the texture will get. As such, Rusty Thought’s jewels find their true beauty when worn and passed along from one generation to the next.
