In ancient Semitic languages, "goral" means destiny and "ska" evokes femininity in Slavic languages. This is the meaning of "Maison Goralska", created and designed by Corinne Evens. A Jewel created for a woman of her time, facing the future : a woman who takes responsibility for her choices and her life with talent.
The Creator - Corinne EVENS
A RESPONSIBLE AND PROFESSIONAL VISION OF JEWELLERY
Corinne Evens, from a diamond family for 3 generations, has always been surrounded by rough stones and their mysteries.
Cradled by the stones’ structural poetry and grammar of the jewellery, she yearned to break the jewellery taboos and to reinvent a new way of using diamonds.
Corinne continuously and closely monitors the entire process and ensures that an ethical process is applied (The Kimberley Process ensures that diamonds don’t come from conflict zones ) and especially that stones and raw materials are professionally sourced.
A SOLIDARITY-BASED BRAND FOR A WOMAN CITIZEN OF THE WORLD
For three generations, the Evens family has distinguished itself in the diamond business. In 1956, Georges Evens created the group under the family name. He was considered to be one of the largest diamond dealers in the world.
Today, his daughter Corinne Evens manages the family Group. She holds a Masters in Mathematics and is also passionate about art and jewellery. She designs Goralska jewels, produces documentaries and also makes art video.
Over the past 50 years, the Group has diversified into real estate and private equity. He finds a balance between economic dynamism and philanthropic actions.
As a highly commited woman, Corinne participated along with her family members in the creation of the Evens Foundation in 1990. She is now an Honorary President of the Foundation.
The Evens Foundation supports projects that promote the harmonious co-existence of citizens and states within a peaceful and diversity-respecting Europe. Every two years, the Foundation originates initiatives in media education, peace education and the empowerment of civil society through an awards ceremony. In 2013, Corinne Evens created her own jewellery brand “Goralska” - that embodies the values of courage, sharing, ambition and hope.
In line with its commitments, Goralska donates a portion of its profits to organizations working towards progress and the well-being for mankind (evensfoundation.be ; uef-learningforwellbeing.org ; positiveplanet.ngo ; bmipbethlehem.com ; starshea.com ; womenforwomen.org ; theafricacenter.org).
