After graduating from the Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts & Arts et Métiers of Brussels in jewelry design, Pascaline Janssens van der Maelen started her career at Poiray in 1982.
She completed her Academic journey in a conventional jewelry workshop working for the Place Vendôme in Paris (Van Cleef & Arpels, Boucheron, Bulgari and Hermes) and by carrying out a survey of perfume bottles for Lancôme.
In 1985, she decided to create her own jewelry brand Arany, which means ‘gold’ in Hungarian. In 1991, she co-founded a workshop and created for well-known jewelers such as Mauboussin, Tiffany & Co. and Hermès. On an international scale, Pascaline Janssens designed for Majorica (Spain), Popley (United Arab Emirates), Dianish (India) as well as Le Bon Marché and Printemps (France).
Now, she creates under the name Arany.
