For Christmas, most of our gorgeous Italian jewellery designs are created by Bijoux Jean Andrè. We have worked in collaboration for over 16 years and utilise their lovely designs throughout our seasonal collections. Our knitwear and accessories buyer, Michelle works with them, using our colour palettes to create these complementary pieces to our clothing collection.
The Italian company was founded in 1976 by Ferdinando and Franca Fumei, who titled the business combining the names of their two children, Giovanna and Andrea, into Jean Andrè. This family-run company, led by a brother and sister team, is in the beautiful city of Florence. Their wonderful accessories are entirely designed and produced in Italy, respecting the highest standards in terms of quality and using safe materials. The company produces a variety of products such as rings, necklaces, bracelets, brooches. They use gorgeous authentic glass including Swarovski crystals, pearls and precious Murano glass in a wonderful array of shapes and colours.
We wanted to know more about them, so we asked Giovanna about the inspiration behind her designs.
As a fashion designer, living the fashion world in my daily life fuels my creativity: fashion shows, events and fairs are a blast to keep my design up to date and always aligned with fashion. But at the same time, my creations always embrace the harmony and the refined elegance of Florence, the city where I live and that is an endless source of inspiration.
Bijoux Jean Andrè has a fundamental presence in our Christmas jewellery collection, giving us the opulent handmade pieces below and following the latest trends that you will want to wear throughout the festive season.
