"There comes a day in every woman's life when she wakes up wanting jewellery," believes Solange Azagury-Partridge, the designer who woke up to diamonds and jewels earlier than most. Her passion for design, her acute and unconventional sense of beauty, and her instinctive understanding of the meaning and roles of jewellery have led her, from an early age, to her position today as the leading, trailblazing designer-jeweller of her generation.
Under no prejudices or preconceptions, London born Solange Azagury -Partridge started by working with jeweller Nicky Butler, and then with decorative arts dealer, Gordon Watson, where she discovered great masterpieces of 20th Century jewellery. It was her decision in 1987 to design her own engagement ring, set with a rough diamond, and much-admired, that propelled Solange into her creative adventures as a fine jewellery designer.
In 1990, she set up her own company, and in 1995 opened her first shop, in London's Notting Hill, a luscious velvet-dark jewel-box of a boutique that quickly drew an international clientele of jewellery connoisseurs and creative people in their quest for individual high jewellery pieces.
The expansion of her brand is currently in motion with five boutiques around the world in London, New York, Beverly Hills, Singapore and Hong Kong, with more openings to come.
