A self-proclaimed citizen of the world, Maral Artinian attributes her playful creativity and innovative design inspiration to the wide variety of influences and the amazing women she has encountered amongst many diverse cultures. Her unique and winding journey finally brought her to New York City where she thrives on the energy, excitement and enthusiasm of the fashion capital of the world.

As the daughter of an Armenian retail jeweler and diamond whole-saler, fine jewelry has always been a part of Maral’s DNA. She intuitively recognized a need in the marketplace for more fashion-forward, female self-purchase fine jewelry for everyday wear. The inspiration for the MARLI brand was then born.
