Employee Profile : Mallory

For the second installment in our employee profiles we bring you the magnificent Mallory - the hard working ray of sunshine at the helm of our Cambridge store..
 



1) What is your position at Rebekah Brooks, and what is your favorite part of your job?

 

I manage our Cambridge store in Harvard Square. I have a hand in merchandising and display, educating employees, social media, selecting antiques and helping to create amazing custom pieces for our clients. The thing that brings me the most satisfaction and fulfillment in my job is making other people happy (cliche, I know). Being involved in couple's lifelong commitments to one another, and seeing them happy at the end of the day is something that I cannot be more grateful for.

 

2) What are you passionate about outside of work? 

 

In college I studied fine art, and I continually exercise my artistic interests outside of work. I love to paint, draw, and take photos (mostly of my cat) and explore new culinary outlets around Boston. I'm always trying to go to art shows, meet new people, and hike around New England in the Summer. To me, there's no better place than being outside. 


 

 

3) What is your favorite jewelry era?

 

The Art Deco period definitely takes the cake for me when it comes to my favorite jewelry era. I love the introduction and prominent use of platinum and white gold during this period, where everything predating the 1910's was primarily made with yellow and rose golds. Floral victorian motifs are lovely, but it's so interesting to see how those themes evolved into clean, geometric and architectural lines that Deco jewelry is so known for. Colored stones and contrasting stone and metal combinations were such an industrial trend that mimic what was going on in the world at that time, which is fascinating to me. Since Old European cut diamonds were so popular during the Deco period, it's definitely my favorite because it's jewelry is the perfect combination of new and old.

Winter Engagement

A couple of great customers from our Cambridge store who were nice enough to share some photos. We made & engraved a ring for them then strung it on a chain - seems to suit them perfectly. In their own words: 'As a man trying to buy an engagement memento for another man, I was pretty much at a loss. I wanted something traditional yet contemporary. Something special but not flashy. Something simple but not boring. I didn't know if I should get a ring or a necklace or a pendant or something totally different. I really feel like I got the best of everything, and didn't have to compromise for it.' Our thanks & a big congratulations to them both!
