THE IANNECI STORY
The inner workings of jewelry brand, Ianneci, started long ago over a series of summer vacations to the Jersey Shore on the east coast. Twin sisters, Jennifer & Kimberly, used their hands to create vibrant and colorful friendship bracelets with shells they uncovered from the Seaside Heights Beach.
The twin sisters studied fashion and merchandising in college, where they gained experience in the fashion industry at Henri Bendel & Lola Faturoti in New York. Their studies brought them to Europe so they could see the wonders of European fashion in Italy, London, and Paris. The love of creativity and making something out of nothing continued into their early careers. Before launching Ianneci Jewelry, Jennifer worked for Claire's Accessories in product development & buying. Kimberly honed her skills at J.Crew & Nordstrom, window dressing & styling. Together, the twin sisters funnel their backgrounds into their jewelry brand.
Ianneci Jewelry launched with a recipe for authentic design and self-taught high-end craftswomanship with everyday, modern women in mind. Each piece is handcrafted with the high-end materials like 14K gold-filled, 14K rose gold-filled, and sterling silver. Swarovski crystals, Swarovski pearls, and other fun beads are used to create necklaces, earrings, and bracelets.
Jennifer & Kimberly's past has dictated their future, hence, they are using their Italian last name, Ianneci, as opposed to the Americanized version, Gennace. Ianneci is pronounced e-ah-net-chee. Growing up the sister's were surrounded by style icons their mom, grandmothers, & aunts who showed them what being a fashion maverick is all about. Ianneci is an accumulation of family history & fashion style. The designers are innovators who inspire, motivate, and celebrate women.
