Melis Goral, an Istanbulite and a third-generation jeweler with a design degree from the Istituto Europeo Di Design, Milan. Melis 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. Her unique bespoke designs led to the development and maintaining a loyal clientele. 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 collections are authentic, bold, and alluring. She aspires to create pieces, which derive from her imagination and heritage; sourcing inspiration from a variety of influences such as art, architecture, cultures, travel, and ruminations.
