The fascination of gemstones for Ileana Makri never seized. After studying business administration, Makri went on to pursue her true love: jewelry design.

After graduating from Gemological Institute of America, Makri’s passion guided her to her new venture. She opened her first retail store which brought about the attention for her now very successful brand. Once her line launched, the fashion world accepted it wholeheartedly.

Her jewels were used to accessorize several fashion shows, one being The Row in 2012.

Living between London, Paris, New York, and Athens, it is no wonder her pieces are filled with intricate details that are both chic yet edgy at the same time.
