With three boutiques–one in Tokyo, one in Paris and most recently, NYC–Marie-Hélène De Taillac has continually been successful throughout her jewelry career, which began in 1996. What inspires her is color–gemstones like tourmaline, spinel and sapphires are her muse. In the past she used semi-precious stones in her bright designs when others used diamonds, rubies and emeralds, and made a name for herself. Now, the newly opened boutique in New York’s upper East side is just as colorful as her jewelry. Vibrant blue on the walls, with hints of pastels throughout the showroom. It truly looks like a candyland dreamworld.
