Scott Kay, one of the most prominent and celebrated designers in the jewelry business for 30 years, died of a heart attack on Dec. 4, 2014. He was 57
His profile was raised considerably when celebrities embraced his vision, and his creations found their way to Gwyneth Paltrow, Heidi Klum, Salma Hayek, and Michael Jackson. Industry honors include being chosen to design the first De Beers Millennium diamond, acting as spokesman for palladium and the World Gold Council, and being the first jewelry designer ever featured on the cover of Vogue Gioiello.
Kay’s success as a widely honored celebrity jeweler often credited with resurrecting platinum contrasted with his troubled upbringing in Brooklyn, as the son of alcoholic mother and absent father.
Kay’s outspoken, sometimes swaggering persona—his company (and personal) motto was “never compromise”—stood in contrast to the delicacy of his art. His pieces were distinguished by an attention to often-minute detail as well as extremely personal spiritual and religious themes.
