Specialized in Jewelry Design.
Eleonora lives by the inspirational words of Henri Matisse, “creativity takes courage.” Fascinated by the Arts and Nature, she believes that Design can express the beauty of the human soul. But to do so, an artist must be brave and bold enough to show it to the world. This belief began for Eleonora at a very young age. She grew up at “Gioielleria Marinone” (Pavia, Italy), the jewelry store founded by her parents Anna Maria and Daniele in 1979. She spent years surrounded by love and encouragement in an environment rich in inspiration and creativity. There, she learned and improved her skills, and her lifelong passion for precious stones was born. After graduating with honors in Modern Literature with a focus in Modern Art, Eleonora moved to Milan to further pursue her passion for art and jewels. She studied Gemology at the “Istituto Gemmologico Italiano,” of which she is a member. She is also a member of the “Associazione Italiana Gemmologi” (the only Institution recognized by the Italian government.). Her continued curiosity and love for jewelry led her to first learn how to create models by carving the wax by hand, and then to later also acquire bench jewelry skills. In 2021, Eleonora moved to Carlsbad (California, USA) where she completed the Jewelry Design & Technology Program at the world-renowned Gemological Institute of America (GIA). Incorporating the most advanced, cutting-edge technologies in design and manufacturing, Eleonora provides clients with superior technical expertise and practical skills, while also preserving the ties to classic Italian handcrafting traditions. Her designs reflect a beautiful balance of history, craftsmanship and state-of-the art techniques. Eleonora has spent years honing her skills and her artistry has flourished. She has the confidence to boldly express her creativity through her work. She is firmly dedicated to quality and the creation of unique, one-of-a-kind pieces that are true, wearable pieces of art.
