ABOUT THE FOUNDERS
About the Founders
The launch of Toni + Chloë Goutal is the culmination of the mother and daughter’s lifelong passion for Victorian jewelry, and years of traveling to source the 19th-century pieces that make up their first collection.
For Toni, jewelry is more than just a passion; in the 1980s she worked with her sister, Angela Kramer, in designing and sourcing gems from dealers on private collections for Fred Leighton. Toni, who is a dedicated collector, passed down her passion, impeccable taste, and discerning eye to her daughter Chloë, who grew up with a talent for mixing and matching jewelry since she was a little girl.
Toni and Chloë's designs first took shape in 2014, and very quickly evolved into an entrepreneurial venture when the mother and daughter design team were receiving requests to buy the pieces from friends and family. While designing their first collection, Toni and Chloë called on family friend and renowned jeweler James de Givenchy to help perfect the initial designs, a source of inspiration and early supporter in helping Toni and Chloë bring their namesake collection to life.
