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 characteristic and unique signature. Our client is a refined collector with a distinct style and taste who is looking for jewelry with an uncommon and intrinsic value. Jewelry made in a traditional way and with a bold design. In everything we do, creativity, sustainability and quality predominate.

The passion for gemstones and jewelry flows through JESSE’s family heritage. Grandfather Bernhard Jesse (1896) started as a diamond cutter and founded the diamond factory Elion & Jesse, where Luciënne's father Albert Jesse (1936) also worked. After the Second World War, Albert started a diamond trade where Luciënne was an apprentice for a long time. Once in the business she discovered her love for gemstones that would go on to determine the course of her life. She received her graduate gemology degree at the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) in New York. And when Albert moved to Antwerp with his company, Luciënne started for herself in Amsterdam buying and selling jewelry. She quickly grew into becoming a designer of jewelry on behalf of jewelers throughout the country and within a short time the jewelry was sold at more than 60 stores. In 1998 Luciënne decided to go back to square one and start her own shop: JESSE Jewelry. This ensured that she could sell her own designs and therefore no longer had to conform to the taste of other jewelers. Thanks to a solid network and a good reputation that she had carefully built up, her store quickly gained numerous visitors from all over town and even abroad. Since the foundation of JESSE we have been able to receive and enrich many thousands of people with our unique jewelry and our group of loyal customers continues to grow every year.

Our team

JESSE consists of a team of specialists of whom each has extensive knowledge and expertise when it comes to jewelry. In order to deliver the highest quality, we demand from ourselves that we know the jewelry through and through to inform you in the finest details. This way we ensure that you always get a piece of jewelry that exceeds your expectations and enriches your collection, large or small.

The fine art of jewelry

The gemstones in JESSE’s jewelry are carefully selected by us. Our designs are realized by goldsmiths who have mastered the craft down to the finest detail and with whom we have also been working for years. Partly because of this, they know our expectations and high quality requirements. They apply this in the process of creation and this produces an unparalleled end product.

You can also have jewelry designed on request at JESSE. This process of co-creation with founder and principal designer Luciënne Jesse always starts with a good conversation.

Remake & Polishing

Precious but dated heirlooms like an antique unwearable brooch, a boring necklace with pretty stones? At JESSE we can remake your old jewelry and adapt it to this time.

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.

Do you have white gold jewelry that you would like to have polished and rhodium plated? In that case we are also happy to help you. The jewelry does not have to come from JESSE for this. Your jewelry will look like new again afterwards.
