Originally obtaining a degree in Business Administration, Greek born Ileana Makri went on to follow her true passion and studied jewellery design at the Gemological Institute of America in Santa Monica. She soon ventured into retail and opened her first store, Mageia, in the heart of Athens. Since launching her eponymous jewellery line in 1996 in the very same store, Ileana Makri has become a firm A-list favorite.
With an irresistible feminine appeal, Ileana Makri collections feature iconic symbols inspired by the designer’s Greek heritage. The underlying rock-chic approach to the pieces makes her jewellery uncompromisingly contemporary and simultaneously timeless, for an opulent edge to every look.
