Paola van der Hulst’s fine jewelry line was born out of Paola’s love for beauty, small details, creativity, and a special inkling for precious stones. Drawing from her rich cultural experiences and her life in Mexico, all designs are handcrafted by Paola herself and subsequently produced in her workshop in Mexico City.
Born in Mexico City to a Mexican mother and a Dutch father, Paola left Mexico at 16 to study at Kent School in the United States. Finding herself more in-tune with Europe at the time, she chose to study at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, where she graduated with a degree in Economics and Finance and subsequently worked in finance in London for three years.
Looking to pursue her true creative passion, she left her job in finance in the spring of 2012 and moved back to Mexico City after a decade of living abroad. It was there that she re-discovered the creative potential and her passion for the family business of silver jewelry and decided to follow in her grandfather’s footsteps.
In keeping with the family tradition, all the pieces are handcrafted in Mexico City to the highest standards.
The PvdH Journal is Paola’s virtual mood board, recording her illustrations, artwork, designs and general fashion musings.
