You might not have heard of Jacquie Aiche, but chances are you’ve seen her jewellery. The designer is a firm Hollywood favourite, with everyone from Beyoncé to ‘self-made’ billionaire Kylie Jenner sporting her designs.
It all started back in 2010 when Rihanna wore one of the designer’s body chains—the rest is history. Aiche now counts the world’s biggest names as loyal clients, think Miley Cyrus and Gigi and Bella Hadid to name a few. Emily Ratajkowski was her go-to model when Aiche shot her Spring 2016 lookbook.
The Beverly Hills-based designer has kept a low profile, but her pieces are instantly recognisable. Her go-to motifs, like the wings and triangles, are now a signature. And best of all, they’re all inspired by her father’s Egyptian heritage; which is key to the entirety of her design process, down to the precious stones she chooses.
Although she first became known for her delicate body chains, the designer’s collections have expanded over the last decade. In her latest Instagram thirst trap (one of many from the young mother in the last few weeks), Kylie Jenner is seeing wearing Aiche’s ‘Oval Mother of Pearl ring’, a stunning 14-karat rose gold solitaire ring with a hexagonal-cut aquamarine. She also donned a number of her ‘Lizzy’ bracelets, which are also made from 14-karat solid gold and diamonds.
If you’re hoping to snag a piece, get your wallets ready. Aiche’s Lizzy bracelets alone will set you back a solid $12,000.
