In 1996 Grecian designer Ileana Makri launched her fine jewelry line, drawing inspiration from her time spent traveling the globe leading to designs that are heavily influenced by multicultural touchstones and traditions. Her pieces, constructed in 18k gold with diamonds, rubies and other gemstone accents have irresistible feminine appeal and are stamped by Makri’s signature refined aesthetic and great attention to detail. Combining old-world craftsmanship and modern creativity gives life to her collections, evoking designs that are contemporary yet timeless.
In addition to designing her own signature line, Makri is known for her collaborations with Marios Schwab and The Row. Her stunning pieces have developed a following and can be seen on high-profile celebrities including Uma Thurman, Heidi Klum, and Ashley Olsen.
