JACQUIE AICHE’s well-priced bling brings cheer for the New Year

It’s been a tough year and a harrowing fall/winter as anyone who’s in retail and fashion is all too well aware. We can’t wait to usher out the old year and in keeping with the climate, are having a laid-back “un-New Year’s gathering” rather than “party”. That’s not to say that a little bit of WELL PRICED HAND CRAFTED BLING ISN’T IN ORDER THOUGH, and that’s just what JEWELRY DESINGER, JACQUIE AICHE provides.


Ms. Aiche offers a head-turning number of groupings that combine18 and 14 karat gold and sterling silver, precious and semi-precious gemstones; diamonds, rubies, emeralds and pink tourmalines blended with organic materials; such as minerals, rocks and fossils.
Some pieces are as low as the $200 range, such as a 14k yellow gold and CZ peace sign necklace.

WHAT’S UNIQUE: The designer blends elements from her Egyptian and Native American upbringing, which is present in the serpent pieces. Cleopatra would have worn them, had they been available @ 40B.C.

Jacquie’s list of celebrity and professional clients is growing quickly, and includes: Halle Berry, Sheryl crow, Ashlee Simpson, Daisy Fuentes, Alex von Furstenberg, Ryan Haddon, Mary J. Blige, Faith Hill and Christin Cavallari. The pieces have been worn by stars on TV and scored magazine features. Next time, you watch an episode of “Las Vegas,” “Brothers and Sisters,” and “Charmed,” keep your eye peeled for Jacquie’s pieces.
