Margot McKinney is a fourth generation Australian jeweler, crafting one-of-a-kind masterpieces for discerning women across the globe.
Her collection embraces classic and contemporary designs, and bears the hallmark of her home continent’s extraordinary gems and South Sea Pearls – the finest in the world. Her jewelry artfully combines the natural beauty of Australia’s signature stones, deserts and seas, with her appreciation for fine design and enduring quality.
Margot opened her eponymous luxury home ware, giftware and jewelry boutique in November 2010 in Brisbane’s premiere retail precinct, Emporium. The boutique houses a selection of hand-selected treasures, including traditional, time-honored luxuries by Christofle, Laguoile, Daum and Lalique; whimsical, patterned offerings from Haviland Limoges; humorous hand-crafted Thornwillow stationery; and of course, Margot’s own collection of precious jewels.
Her collection of South Sea Pearls and precious, colored gems was awarded the Prix de Marie Claire for Australia’s Best Fine Jeweler in March 2011, and the Haute Joallerie Award at the biennial International Opal Jewelry Awards in 2009. Margot’s jewelry has been sold by U.S. luxury flagship, Neiman Marcus, since 2008 – her customers among the world’s most powerful and wealthy women.
