Born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, Baroness Mary McFall de Gunzburg (1926-2016) attended the Lausanne Collegiate School and Southwestern College, where she developed what would become a lifelong passion for fine art and exceptional design. She was happily married to Baron Guy de Gunzburg for over forty years, calling New York, Virginia and South Florida home. Sharing a common interest of travel, they embarked on a lifelong journey of world exploration, learning and art collecting. The couple spent a great deal of time in Europe, where the Baroness was exposed to the renowned European jewelry houses of Cartier, Bulgari, Buccellati, and Van Cleef & Arpels. An artist herself, her background in painting and fondness of colorful works of the Impressionist period undoubtedly correlated with her affinity for vibrant colored gemstones and beautifully crafted jewelry.
