History[edit]

StyleRocks was founded by Pascale Helyar-Moray who came up with the idea that customers should be able to create a piece of jewellery, exactly as they want it, for an affordable price.[2] Helyar-Moray was inspired by the model of mass customisation as used by various fashion companies.[2][6] After the birth of her twins, Pascale Helyar-Moray relocated from London to Australia and officially started StyleRocks.[7][8]
