About Jacqueline Diani
Jacqueline Diani, has been designing Fine Jewelry for more than 30 years. After many years of one-of-a-kind designs for a private clientele, and designing and manufacturing a few years for Tiffany, Jacqueline decided to make her designs available to a larger audience.
Her first collection, The heirloom Collection (produced in Platinum) made its debut in the posh cases of the prestigious department store Bergdorf Goodman on Fifth Avenue, in New York. The rest is history. What followed is another Collection called “Jacqueline Too.” which has a similar design feel, produced in 18K Gold (all colors, White, Yellow or Rose gold in 20K.) This Collection is at a lower price point than the Heirloom, but has grown to be a larger, more expansive Collection, and is available to a much wider audience. In both Collections fine quality is what she strives for, from the colored stones and diamonds that she chooses to the workmanship that she oversees. Both of these Collections are available at the select Saks Fifth Avenue Stores, and Le Joaillier, Locust Valley, N.Y.
The key element of Jacqueline Diani’s jewelry collections is “femininity”. The rich, mysterious evocative femininity of the femme fatals of yesteryears. A femininity that combines the romance of old world-style with the adventurous interpretation of the new century. Jacqueline weaves her rich European design influences and art history background into each piece, creating small jeweled treasures. While Jacqueline’s jewelry evokes the Art Deco or Belle Epoque period, her jewelry is more than a nod to the past. Is is also a bridge to the present as witnessed by the refreshing use of color in her designs. She uses carefully selected diamonds, precious and semiprecious stones sometimes in the combination with pearls to create vivid and unexpected effects. She not only has the knowledge to choose the right stones, but also a great artistic flair and talent for matching their colors.
Jacqueline is always on the lookout for exceptional stones. She might buy one, and then spend a good deal of time to find the right matching stones, but it’s always worth the effort. No matter what the design, Jacqueline strives to keep the metal to a minimum in each piece. As she says: It should never overpower the jewelry, the stones and the design must speak for themselves. The jewelry should always be “feminine”. It is perhaps, though, Jacqueline’s attention to detail and quality control that truly sets her jewels apart. In fact, because she wants to have total control on the quality of her final product. Jacqueline supervises all phases of the manufacturing of her designs which is manufactured here in New York, and each piece is signed “Jacqueline”.
