Konstantina Mahlia was born in Vancouver BC Canada. The experience of growing up in multi-cultural urban core as well as coming from a family with strong European roots began to inspire a creative ability that showed from childhood, and in 2005 manifested itself in a collection of 18kt gold jewelry. That jewelry immediately began to garner the attention of the jewelry industry. When the industry paid attention, the awards soon followed. Purveyors: Saks 5th Avenue, Wynn & Co, Sabbia (Key Biscayne) Caribou Gems (Aspen), Aspen Jewel Box, Stanley Korshak (Dallas), Scoop NY, Funny Face (Kobe, Japan), Couture Lab (London), Fred Segal, AHA Life, Fortune 500 collectors and shows in New York, Dallas, Beverly Hills, Santa Barbara, Palm Springs, Chicago, Miami, Houston..... and Paris have all began to change the world view customers that Mahlia Collection could reach. The Mahlia logo: two lions with one head, facing the world in unison, resting on an anvil; is a symbol of rare elegance, strength, courage and ancient heritage. This symbol and name represent one of the most ancient histories of western civilization; today represented by timeless artifacts of impeccable craftsmanship that hearken back to their roots in the basin of the ancient Mediterranean.
