A New York City native and Irish transplant, Christina Goldston’s twenty-five-year journey started in her family’s Brooklyn fine jewellery business in the 1990s. After obtaining a BA in International Business and Marketing and a Graduate Gemologist Degree from the Gemological Institute of America, Christina began grading diamonds for Tiffany & Co, NY and opened her own shops in New York City (Manhattan) and the Hamptons.
Christina’s strong links to Ireland brought her to this side of the pond in 2001 to work with Appleby Jewellers. She was then recruited in 2006 to help launch Boodles Jewellers in Dublin. Christina launched her own line ChristinaBelle in 2010, designing and creating her collections in her studio in Cabinteely, Co Dublin.
She re-branded to Christina Goldston Jewellery in 2018 and gave the brand a fresh, new, sophisticated look. Christina’s work features intricate beading with semi-precious gemstones, freshwater pearls, crystals and metals such as sterling silver and gold vermeil. Christina finds inspiration around the world for her colourful and signature creations.
She has lived on three continents (North and South America, Europe) and continuously travels the globe in search of trends, motifs and colours for each of her collections. In her spare time, she loves to entertain, and is famous for her American-style Sunday Brunches! She is a fan of architecture, opera, photography, and anything Art Deco.
