JEWELRY DESIGNER, LONDON
Born to a German mother and Swiss-Canadian father Alina Abegg was raised between Italy, England, Switzerland, and Germany. Alina grew up surrounded by a vibrant and international culture.
It was this global upbringing, combined with Alina’s family heritage of European silk manufacturing that ingrained in her early on an ethos of luxury, an appreciation of high-end craftsmanship, and attention to detail. She deepened her appreciation of the world of fashion and luxury by pursuing an undergraduate degree at Istituto Marangoni in London.
It was Alina’s fascination with gemstones that served as the initial force gravitating her towards the realm of jewelry design. After graduating from GIA in New York with degrees in Gemology and Jewelry Design she launched her fine jewelry brand Alina Abegg Jewels in London in 2016.
Her first collection Cosmic Escape is deeply inspired by the mystery of our universe and the playful aesthetics of 90s jewelry. In this cosmic collection the designer combines geometric shapes and multi-colored gemstones in to precious UFOs, planets and all things out of this world. All pieces are handmade with 18-karat gold and produced in Germany, representing Alina’s roots as well as the country’s fine craftsmanship.
