Saturday and Sunday, July 21 & 22, we're having a champagne reception for renowned jewelry designer Jackie Jones. Jackie will be presenting a trunk show of her new collection at Stephen Frank, giving our customers a first-look prior to her presentation at the California Gift Show in Los Angeles.
After spending 18 years in high tech marketing in England and the US, British-born Jackie Jones began her career as a jewelry designer in 2002. Frustrated by a lack of bold and distinctive jewelry designs, Jackie quit the corporate world to pursue a lifelong passion of running her own creative business.
Inspiration for her designs comes mainly from being around gemstones: “When I see the combinations of different stones, the cuts and colors, the size and shapes - the creative juices start flowing and I see endless design possibilities.” Each unique piece of jewelry is a work of wearable art.
Ultimately, Jackie achieves her greatest satisfaction from the women who wear her jewelry. “I have always admired women who are not afraid to be bold and different - in their fashion style and the way they live their lives.” Jackie’s distinctive jewelry attracts self-assured women who are comfortable standing out. “Sometimes I can be wearing a simple outfit and I feel invisible. Then I put on a fabulous necklace or some dramatic earrings and I feel transformed.”
Around 250 high-end boutiques, gift stores, galleries and jewelry stores in the US currently carry Jackie’s line as well as stores in Italy, England, Japan, Canada, and Mexico.
The late actress Elizabeth Taylor owned several of Jackie’s necklaces. Jackie’s jewelry was also chosen to accessorize the collection of leading fashion designer Sue Wong at LA Fashion Week.
