Dan - director

At the core of the business is Dan who has used his experience and resources to make this project a reality.  Lila’s represents a reflection of his keen eye for design and his customer-focused business model that goes back almost 20 years. Besides his wisdom from behind the scenes, he’s also “Dan the Man”, the do-it-all kind of guy to whom we always turn when in trouble or…need a bulb changed and a desk fixed, a ring photographed or some findings picked up. Dan is hooked on restoring old vehicle toys with proper working engines and experiments with film photography.                                                        

 

 


Cata - director, buyer, valuer 

Dan’s other half, Cata has a history in managing jewellery stores, buying fine jewellery (quite a tough job, hey?) and a more recent compulsion to roam Europe’s antique markets and bid for sparkly things. More than anything, she had a drive to create a different kind of jewellery experience with a great respect for the environment and a sincere approach to customers. The boutique is not reduced to its stocks but brought to life by a wonderful and skilled team. With a business to run, two kids and a husband who fancies toys, Cata is hooked on Amarone.






 

Hannah - store manager, designer

Every person who's ever come across our boutique remembers Hannah, our store manager. English born, Aussie bred, she's the friendliest person ever and a goldmine when it comes to helping you navigate through the intricate ways of jewellery buying or making. Hannah graduated from jewellery design with an honours degree and has experience in managing fine jewellery stores, but what everybody loves her for (yes, everybody loves Hannah!) is her warm approach and her profound desire to always make things right. A Sci-Fi nerd in her spare time.


 

 


Bel - sales consultant

Bel was the very first person to become an official member of Lila’s staff back in the days when the current store was just a shell. Over the years, she's worked with jewellery departments in Harrods and Liberty among other well-established trade businesses and we were immediately blown away by her experience, her knowledge of designer pieces and jewels on trend. She’s really good at what she does – plain and simple. Bel loves to go out with her friends and is always finding new things to paint in her house and progressively more elaborate DIY projects!
