Jewelry designer Joie DiGiovanni’s layer-worthy accessories are the new must-have on the Main Line.
Joie DiGiovanni’s new black and white collection is among the many pieces the designer is toting along for her September trunk show at Neiman Marcus.
“I set out to create a jewelry collection focused on beautiful design and produced using quality materials,” says Joie DiGiovanni, a Main Liner whose luxe bohemian pieces can be spotted from barre class to the boardroom.
“It was really hard to find quality jewelry—and if you did, the pricing was outrageous—so I decided to make my own accessories,” the self-taught designer says of launching her own line, which will be on full display for a trunk show at Neiman Marcus September 24–25. “It began with simple pieces like stretch bracelets and blossomed into what it is today—intricate gemstone, leather, and pearl designs for bracelets, earrings, necklaces, and even anklets. Hopefully, rings are in the near future.”
Using natural leather adorned with gems like lapis, aquamarine, pink opal, and iridescent abradorite, her namesake collection sits front and center at popular boutiques like Barbara Ellick in Narberth and Ella’s Grove and Jeff Kellmer Private Jeweler in Haverford. Price points range from $80 to $3,000, and customer favorites include the Pyrite Rockstar baroque pearl lariat and her ruby, emerald, and multi-sapphire lariats. “They’re made of gorgeous gemstones that go with everything from jeans and a T-shirt to a black-tie gown,” she says. “Every single piece I make by hand personally, so there is a bit of me in every one.”
