Every Monday The Carat Soup shines a spotlight on hidden gems: extraordinary women in our industry. This week my focus is on @Marie-Hélène de Taillac <CLICK HERE> for Insta goodness

Established in 1996 and now available in flagship stores in Paris, New York and Tokyo, Marie-Hélène de Taillac is a jeweller dedicated to bringing the fun and joy back into stunning pieces of fine jewellery.
Marie-Hélène’s jewellery journey began aged 18, at Butler & Wilson in London – a firm favourite in the UK. She’s travelled the globe extensively and this is evident in many of her pieces.

In her words: “She worked as the managing director of the Dinny Hall brand, as an assistant to the haute couture designer Victor Edelstein, and as the collection director for Philip Treacy, milliner to the Queen. The young Frenchwoman took to Swinging London so well that that she’d practically become English.”
