About Jesse

Jesse is a Dutch women's jewelry brand founded by Luciënne Jesse. Since 1996, we have been designing handcrafted jewelry of the highest quality with our distinctive and distinctive signature. Our customer is a sophisticated collector with a clear personal style and taste who is looking for jewelry with a unique and intrinsic value. Jewelry made by hand and with a bold design. In everything we do, creativity, durability and quality prevail.

Diamonds and precious stones are in the Jesse family's blood. Grandfather Bernhard Jesse (1896) started out as a diamond cutter and was founder of the diamond factory Elion & Jesse, where Luciënne's father Albert Jesse (1936) also worked. He started a diamond business after World War II, where Luciënne was an apprentice for a long time. Once in the trade, she discovered her love for gemstones. She obtained her graduate gemology degree at the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) in New York. When Albert moved to Antwerp with his business, Luciënne started for herself in Amsterdam buying and selling a jewelry line. She soon continued to grow as a designer of jewelry commissioned by jewelers, and within a short time the jewelry was at more than 60 retailers. In 1998, Luciënne decided to go back to basics with her own shop: Jesse Jewelry. This allowed her to sell her own designs and therefore she no longer had to conform to the taste of jewelers. Thanks to a solid network and the notoriety that had by now been amassed, people soon knew how to find the new shop. Since its establishment, we have welcomed and enriched many thousands of people with our unique jewelry. Our group of loyal customers therefore continues to grow every year.

The fine art of jewelry

The gemstones in our jewelry are selected and purchased from a small group of suppliers with whom we have long-standing relationships. Our designs are brought to life by goldsmiths who have mastered the craft down to the finest detail and with whom we have also been working for years. Over the years they have grown familiar with our expectations and high quality requirements. They apply this in the process of creation and are able to deliver an unparalleled end product.

We offer design on request. The gold, the diamond, the gemstones and your personality are the starting points in this process. Your wishes and dreams can be limitless. This process of co-creation with founder and principal designer Luciënne Jesse always starts with a good conversation.

Remake & Polishing

Precious but dated heirlooms such as an antique unwearable brooch, a dull necklace with pretty stones? At Jesse, we can have your old jewelry altered and adapted to our times.

Sometimes only minor adjustments are needed and sometimes we have to be more rigorous. However, the result is always the same: your "renewed" piece of jewelry has become a beautiful and above all wearable and timeless design.

You can go through your jewelry box by appointment with our team to build up a beautiful jewelry collection with your old and new jewelry.

If you have jewelry that you want to have rhodium plated (polished) we can help you out. The jewelry does not have to come from our store in order to qualify for this. The jewelry will be with us for an average of two weeks, after which it will look like new again.
