Nancy Kippes Mariani's Profile
Nancy, a resident of Spartanburg, SC since 1996, was born in the house of a well-known watchmaker and father, Juan Guillermo Kippes, from San Isidro in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Juan still operates his jewelry store after 50 years in the business. It came to nobody’s surprise when Nancy became the first woman in the country to graduate with a technical degree from the Swiss Watchmaking School of Argentina.
Nancy creates unique artisan pieces combining her favorite metal, silver, with fine semiprecious stones and crystals, these are just a few of the components that come together in order to bring her pieces to life. Her goal is to make fine jewelry accessible and affordable to all women who value the highest form of art and craftsmanship in what they wear.
