Known for her lavish line of boho jewellery pieces for women, Jacquie Aiche has become a household name in many celebrity circles.

A self-professed rebel and high-end jewellery designer extraordinaire, her signature aesthetic falls somewhere between traditional Americana and the flavours of the Middle East. As a nod to her father’s Egyptian roots, many of Jacquie’s pieces incorporate wings, scarabs, and triangles as well as lapis and turquoise. The fossils and double horn pieces are used in honour of her mother’s Texan roots.

Over the years, the Jacquie Aiche name has expanded into a lifestyle brand by venturing out into other territories like accessories, clutches, hoodies and denim shirts, which were especially designed in collaboration with Mother Denim.

Now, the go-to designer for many celebrities like Rihanna, Kate Hudson, Emily Ratajkowski, and Queen Bey herself, Jacquie is branching out into new territory: men’s jewellery.

The new collection, entitled Ja Men, stays true to her Amerindian and Egyptian roots and spotlights some of her most classic pieces by incorporating quartz, turquoise, opal, lapis, gold, and silver.

According to Jacquie, the experience of working with so many influential men over the years inspired her to create a jewellery line that catered especially to them.

Ranging from turquoise, opal, and lapis bracelets, as well as gold and silver signet rings, to baguette diamonds and gold chains, all of the pieces in the Ja Men collection are created out of the designer’s Beverly Hills studio, further instilling the brand’s dedication to tradition.
