Those who are familiar with jewelry, fashion, and pop culture have no doubt seen a-list celebrities donning one of Jacquie Aiche's pieces. Aiche is a jewelry designer that is based out of Los Angeles, California with a Native American and Egyptian heritage. Her philosophy towards creating jewelry pieces can be summed up on her website: “A woman’s natural beauty can be illuminated with the right piece of jewelry, and that is my mission. To
Celebrities that have worn Aiche's work last year alone include Charlize Theron on multiple occasions, Julia Roberts, Khloe Kardashian, Olivia Munn, Blake Lively, Alessandra Ambrosio, Rihanna, Gigi Hadid, Jennifer Lawrence, and Lupita N'Yongo to name a few. However, the LA-based designer is now taking a big leap and has now released a men's collection as of today. In a statement to WWD, she said, “I feel blessed to work with some of the most creative men, who inspire me endlessly. Over the past year, the demand for a men’s collection was growing stronger and stronger. These men pushed me to finally launch it.”
Aiche's success can be traced back to her stackable jewelry line which includes bracelets, rings, and necklaces. She also ventured into halter bras covered in diamonds as well as belly chains. Some of her pieces range in price from a 14-karat gold ear cuff for $350 to a diamond necklace just north of $27,000. Her pieces can be found at Saks Fifth Avenue and Net-a-porter. She is also an advocate for the legalization of recreational cannabis in California and previously designed a collection called "Sweet Leaf" around the theme.
Her new men's collection can be found on her company website and features bracelets, rings, Rolex watches that have been customized, and necklaces. The line also includes some "Sweet Leaf" stuff like vintage shirts made from denim.
“I wanted to be able to give my guys the same energy that I see my girls light up with, an energy that makes you feel so good, empowered, and sexy as soon as the pieces touch the skin,” Aiche continued, “After all, they deserve it, too.”
