Cristina Oritz, born in Aragon, Spain, began her fine jewelry design career studying at Ecole de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne in Paris.
Oritz gained experience as a designer during her career with large fashion houses: Prada, Lanvin, Brioni and Salvatore Ferragamo before moving on to start her own intimate fine jewelry collection. After bringing new life to the brands she worked for, Ortiz began creating pieces inspired by a fantastical world, infusing our world with something magical. Her collections focus primarily on two motifs: angels and mermaids. Her pieces are head-turners that are both mysterious and dazzling.
Cristina Oritz pieces have been seen on style icons like, Blake lively, Madonna and Alessandra Ambrosio.
