Melis Goral is an Istanbulite and a third generation jeweler who worked alongside her jeweler father in Istanbul, spending much of her time visiting the workshops of Grand Bazaar and learning about the craft from its source. In 2014 she took the initiative to turn her passion into a flourishing business, by establishing her own fine jewelry brand and opening her showroom in Bebek. Melis Goral’s collections are authentic, bold and alluring. Her design aesthetic is an eloquent and contemporary take on the Art Deco movement. She aspires to create pieces designed to be timeless and eternally precious, which derive from her imagination and heritage; sourcing inspiration from a variety of influences such as art, architecture, cultures, travel and ruminations.
