Our Story

From Founder and CEO Kate Davis 

Knockout Founder Kate Davis sitting on sidewalk in NYCWe’ve all been there – you’re walking to your car late at night. You’re on a run. You can’t shake that gut feeling. I want you to get where you’re going with confidence. Every Knockout ring has an edge for style and strength. 

As a New Yorker and a woman, I’ve felt unsafe more times than I can count. Keys between my fingers weren’t doing the trick for my style, so I decided to make something better. In 2016, after learning how to carve rings in wax, I created the subtle and sharp Total Knockout (TKO). 

I started Knockout in my apartment at 25 with no experience making jewelry or running a business. My background is in arts administration, so design and aesthetics are central to Knockout’s ethos.

Sleek when you want them to be, sharp if you need them to be, Knockout rings are a conversation starter and stopper.
