OUR STORY

Daniela Colaiacovo founded MAKAL in 2018 after two decades pioneering the world’s first mining business to produce fully traceable gold from ethical operations and women-run cooperatives. She led the way with zero-waste extraction, chemical-free processing and a business model that included local artisanal miners as equal business partners. Mining as a positive force for community development is in the DNA of the MAKAL brand.

Daniela’s family mine in Central American yielded gold nuggets – naturally occurring formations of solid gold created by weather and gravity. As Daniela watched the nuggets being lifted by hand from the clear waters of the Mayan river, she envisioned how they could form the heart of an exquisite jewellery range. Engaging her passion for design and art, she has enhanced the raw beauty of the nuggets. Using premium Italian craftsmanship, MAKAL has augmented the nuggets with the purest precious materials and superior gemstones: offered by the Earth, embraced by the Heart and reflected in the Cosmos.
