How did your brand begin?
"Jean Joaillerie was launched in France in 2010 where I had been living since the mid 90's. I had always been fascinated with both French history and the brocante markets, and incorporated the objects I found at the markets into my first collections."
“It is both fashion and fine jewelry wrapped into one.”
Where do you get inspiration for your designs?
“The places I have lived and traveled to plays a big part in the creation behind my work but equally my own imagination and creativity."
How is your jewelry made?
When Jean Joaillerie was based in Paris in Montmartre and an atelier in provence; and now in the jewelry district in Miami, Florida. Each piece is handcrafted by highly skilled jewelry techicians with great attention to detail.
How do you want someone to feel when they wear your jewelry?
"I want them to feel like a million….
... absolutely exquisite. I design statement pieces that can be worn in multiple ways so I want my customers to not only feel and look dazzling but to have fun styling them."
If you could only wear one piece from your collection, what would it be and why?
From this current collection ‘the 3 pearl and satin 88 inch wrap necklace’ - it can be worn in so many ways - as a wrap, a sautoir, a choker, a bracelet etc. It was the inspiration for the entire SS18 “ Nuit Blanc “ Collection.
