Mary Katherine Alonso

Combining a 30-year background in interior design with a driving passion for one of a kind jewelry, Mary Katherine Alonso established TUYA in 2014 with the goal of creating timeless yet distinct pieces for the everyday woman. Inspired by Latin influences in her life and the belief that rare individuality should be reflected in each created piece, the name TUYA (meaning “yours” in Spanish) was selected as the ideal moniker to capture the essence of her designs. Mary Katherine is dedicated to her philosophy of creating distinctive limited edition jewelry. Each stone contains stunning natural elements and is hand selected from exotic locales found from all over the world. The vision of TUYA is to provide refined, everyday and interchangeable jewelry that reflects an emotion, shares a story and makes a statement. Mary Katherine believes every woman was created divinely unique and she hopes that TUYA encourages women everywhere to share their own stylized story.

"Jewelry is an artistic form of expression. It is an extension of your personality, your soul, your story."
