At the very heart of Taylor & Hart, previously known as Rare Pink, is design.
The team behind the predominantly online-only jewellery retailer have always believed in the power of personalisation, and have from the get-go set out to be a platform whereby it is easy for consumers to create products that symbolise their style and story.
While designing rings is made easy on the jeweller’s website, behind every piece of technology and customer vision is a talented design expert that helps make dreams become a reality.
One of those designers is Maria Llalana who joined the company a few years ago as a design consultant.
In a very short period of time her role evolved and she was promoted to senior design consultant when she was constantly called upon to help on complex pieces.
Creativity runs through Llalana’s veins. Initially, she started studying Art History but eventually switched over to Jewellery Arts because she wanted to work with her hands.
Now she is a trained jeweller and gemmologist who always gives 100% attention to every project
At Taylor & Hart she has taken on extra responsibilities including managing the company’s London showroom and overseeing the sample range of collection rings.
In her role, she is able to express her innate creativity by designing timeless treasures. Her greatest joy is helping bring a customer’s idea to life knowing the ring crafted will be forever part of that couple’s love story.
