Margarita is credited with successfully combining haute jewellery with kinetics, a pioneering trend of the 20th century. Using her expert skills as both an architect and engineer, Margarita redefined traditional jewellery design from the very beginnings of Sybarite, by creating her first spinning rings - Merry-Go-Round, Dancing Doll, and Ballerina, widely known as the Dancing Rings. These preeminent rings were globally recognised as exemplary designs,changing it means to create haute jewellery and attracting the attention of world-leading magazines such as Tatler, Vanity Fair and Harpers Bazaar, as well as accomplished sales within Sybarite's discerning clientele.
In 2016, Sybarite Jewellery was thrilled to successfully present their 'Waltz of The Flowers', 'Ballerina and the Tin Soldier', and other collections at Baselworld in Switzerland.

Sybarite has also been showcased within The Ritz Hotels in both Paris and London, Promenade Porto Cervo, as well as the exquisite Showroom at One Kensington Gardens in the heart of London.
"Traditionally, jewellers have created static pieces for thousands of years. By adding movement to jewellery, I have revolutionised its philosophy, allowing our pieces to come alive, inspired by the beauty and magic of nature. As a jeweller, my concept is to find ways to introduce kinetic effects and hidden secrets that are a unique joy to own. I strive to create masterpieces that will be treasured within the family, passed down from mothers to daughters, and cherished by generations to come," says Margarita.
