About Us

The Finishing Touch of Kentucky is a manufacturer and wholesaler of equestrian jewelry. Horses are our specialty because we live in Lexington, KY, the horse capital of the world, and we love horses! We ship out of our manufacturing facility which is located in Nicholasville, KY.

What We Do

Since 1989, we have offered the finest quality in costume equestrian jewelry, and over the years have grown to become the premier costume jewelry manufacturer in the United States.

Although we carry a few items that are imports (maybe 5%), most of our products are designed in Kentucky; we outsource the model making, casting, polishing, and plating in Rhode Island, which was once the costume jewelry capital of the world (before NAFTA became a reality). Rhode Islanders have been designing, casting, soldering, plating, and stoning jewelry since the early 20th century, and they are the best!

Mary Holman and Kaye Holder
Mary Holman, Founder and Kaye Holder, General Manager make The Finishing Touch of Kentucky a two-generation business.

Final touches (such as stones, painting, chains on necklaces, etc.) are added to each piece of the TFT of KY equestrian jewelry by Kentucky artisans at our company headquarters in Kentucky.

Through this process, our customers receive the added bonus of a superior product because it is made in the USA where these processes were developed. The designs we manufacture are lead free, and are made with the horse lover in mind. We take such delight in being able to offer you the highest quality and most exciting styles in equestrian jewelry available in the marketplace.
