Manuel Marfil began his first contacts with the world of jewelry by the hand of his brother Francisco, founder and first president of Iberjoya, Madrid.
Manuel Marfil and MªJosé Tallada founded Marfil Tallada S.A, dedicated to the import of cultivated pearls from Japan, Australia and Tahiti, with sale to professionals.
The company grows and separates in two branches oriented to different customers:
- Marfil Tallada Perlas, continues the import business as pearl wholesaler.
- Hecbe Joyeros, with a high jewelry line directed by MªJosé Tallada. The name, Hecbe, is a clear evocation of Manuel and MªJosé to their children Héctor, Begoña and Paloma.
