Margarita Prykhdko founded Sybarite in 2012, following a career as an architect and engineer. It made sense for her to join the worlds of design, engineering and art in order to create the jewelry that she wanted. Sybarite comes from the ancient city of Sybaris in Southern Italy founded in around 720 BC. The Sybarites became known throughout the ancient world for their dedication to pleasure and luxury. Sybarite Jewelry is spurred by the desire for perfection, creating jewelry that is incomparable in both design and realization. Using time-honored techniques combined with innovative technology and groundbreaking design, the brand creates exquisite pieces to awaken your inner hedonist. Inspired by nature, literature, history, and the arts, each piece tells a rich and opulent story.
