"I am a GIA Gemologist & Jewelry Designer based in Lausanne. I cultivate a profound passion for precious stones and travel.

This love goes beyond exploration; building meaningful connections with small-scale miners and their communities gives my life drive and a deeper personal meaning.
Whether through my collections or bespoke pieces,
gemstones are the center of my creations, and of my life in general.

Engagement rings hold a very special place in my heart; they allow me to
witness your love for each other and, in a very humble way, be a part of your journey.

I hope my universe will make you dream and travel.

Thank you for being here.

Our main goal is to develop, empower, and connect artisanal small-scale miners by linking them with our clients through our creations.

We aim for our creations to not only be beautiful but also to retain value and appreciate over time, making them a sound investment. The exceptional quality of our precious stones and their stories are what set us apart.

Mara splits her time between her showroom in Lausanne and field expeditions in various countries such as Madagascar, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Sierra Leone, and Colombia, to name a few.
