Seeking a way to channel her grief following her Mother’s passing, Victoria found comfort in her late mother’s jewelry collection. The pieces she inherited are a direct emotional link to her mother; a pure aesthete, artist and beacon of joy who split her time between London, Palm Beach, and New York. Taking its name from Victoria’s late mother’s DJ nickname, “Stax,” as in: Stax of Wax (wax records), Victoria sought to help others create similarly meaningful heirloom pieces, while also helping to champion both established and emerging jewelry designers.
In the years since launching, the scope of the company has expanded from helping individuals source and curate their own fine jewelry collections to strategic partnerships with a number of brands. To date, The Stax, helmed by Victoria and her growing global team have produced successful partnerships with Sotheby’s, Solange Azagury Partridge, Ana Khouri, Prounis, Nina Runsdorf and Alex Eagle, Alice Cicolini, Renato Cipullo, Natalia Pas, Jenna Katz, BECK Jewels, TAFFIN, and more. The Stax Advisory is based in Los Angeles with on-contract talent in New York and London.
The Stax continues to evolve as an editorial platform, a dazzling destination fostering a far-reaching and global community of aesthetes and jewelry admirers, with revered editors, stylists and influencers joining such as Ramya Giangola, Harling Ross, and Mica Dosamantes. Kathryn Gile has joined The Stax as COO, coming from the contemporary art world where she worked as a gallery director, artist liaison and studio manager for over 10 years. The Stax will soon feature a shoppable newsletter and exclusive collaborations and content available through our site.
