    Post Lot Text

    Margaret Jewels was established 8 years ago, as a personal, private and bespoke modern jeweller, infused with a sense of history, heritage and continuity. The company was firmly founded on relationships: Oriana and Candice grew up together, like sisters, their families linked by marriage, as well as by a shared love of collecting art and objects.
    Each followed her own career path: Oriana immersed herself in the world of fine jewellery, working alongside Cartier’s creative director Micheline Kanoui, who became her mentor, then at Christie’s, for the indefatigable jewellery-expert François Curiel, and finally moving to New York’s 47th Street diamond district, to work for the legendary diamantaire William Goldberg. Candice meanwhile became a successful magazine executive specialising in marketing and branding. In 2006, both at a turning point in their careers, they decided to join forces and talents to create jewellery with the style, quality, character and charm they both craved.
