About

about us

IANNECI EMBODIES UNIQUE DESIGN, EFFORTLESS STYLE, & QUALITY

We started IANNECI because we were on the never-ending search for jewelry that felt like a natural extension of our own style - European edgy sophistication. In our college studies of fashion design & merchandising, we traveled to Europe and were heavily influenced by design houses like Vivienne Westwood, Marni, & Zandra Rhodes. In our travels and influence in the industry, we learned that pushing the envelope open was standard and accepted. It was ok to be different, unique and to beat to the rhythum of your own drum. We emerged ourselves in the culture of London, Paris & Italy (where we originate from) and got a rad new hairdo by a local Londoner, ate traditional foods, visited fashion schools, museums, famous retailers and local designer markets to gain inspiration for our collection. A few years later, IANNECI was born. It was important for us to cultivate and fuel creativity within us as our expression to bring the beauty of jewelry to life.

our story

We grew up in a household where we were exposed to entrepreneurship at a young age. Our father owned his own custom home company & our mom was very creative and crafty showcasing her one of kind designs at local craft fairs. These qualities were instilled in us, as we explored creative hobbies such as jewelry making, crafts, & sewing. Our summers were spent at the Jersey Shore, where we wouldn’t think to leave the house without our necessities like our bead & string boxes on vacation. Throughout grade school & high school, we would consistently sell our latest creations to friends during recess and over lunch period. During high school, we took our first jewelry and metal design class, as well as other creative electives such as fashion design, studio art & photography. We were known for being the students in our jewelry class that would arrive before school to experiment making all kinds of glass beads. The exposure to these creative classes fueled our creativity for our future career.

After graduation from Adlai E. Stevenson High School (where our school class was approaching 1000 students), and being accepted to Illinois State University, we couldn’t wait to start our fashion courses in Turner Hall. We embraced every opportunity such as finding internships our first semester with a local fashion designer. We also were members of Apparel Merchandising and Design Association (AMDA) for 4 years and took part in the fashion shows at the end of each school year. We also saw the value in teaching other students what we learned and became teaching assistants for our open lab sewing. The ultimate experience came with our 2 study abroad trips with our graduating class to Europe (Italy, France, England) where we got immersed in the fashion culture of each area and visited major fashion houses like Vivienne Westwood, Yves Saint Laurent, Marni, Fendi and Zandra Rhodes, to name a few. As part of our requirement for graduation, we attended Fashion Group International in Chicago, where we were exposed to various fashion companies where we would have the opportunity to intern. Jennifer interned at Claire’s Accessories junior year and was offered a job after graduation working with the Product Development Team, designing novelty accessories. Kimberly interned for Banana Republic junior year in sales and was introduced to the world of visual merchandising and styling, where she received an offer to work with the visual merchandising team at J.Crew after school.

At Claire’s Accessories, Jennifer worked alongside her Product Development team, producing and designing products for novelty accessories, jewelry, home decor, pet accessories, and hair goods. She learned the ins and outs of the full product development cycle which consists of analyzing trends, communicating with overseas vendors, utilizing the design programs, sample approvals for final product. Jennifer soon moved into the Buying, after being intrigued by working closely with the buyers and wanting to tap into the numbers side of the business. Since Claire's, Jennifer has worked for various companies consulting in fashion and the beauty product categories and has most recently consulted for Claire's Accessories on the new Katy Perry Jewelry Collection where she was the head designer for the celebrity collection launch.

At J.Crew, Kimberly led the visual merchandising team in women’s, men’s and kids. She worked with seasonal plan-o-grams, partnered with corporate & excelled at the essence of storytelling through visual merchandising. This experience moved Kimberly into a visual merchandising role at Nordstrom and in turn, brought her to the Nordstrom Corporate Office to work with the Fashion Office in Fashion Trend Forecasting as a consultant. Kimberly analyzed fashion trends in accessories around the world to predict future styles, products & categories that would be sold in Nordstrom.

Jennifer & Kimberly currently live in Chicago, Illinois, where they design and produce IANNECI Jewelry. The concept behind IANNECI Jewelry came about because there was not a brand out there that had the quality and design aspects the designers were looking for. Their jewelry brand falls between the realm of fashion jewelry and fine jewelry, as they’ve created their own market category they like to call Designer Jewelry. Each piece is crafted with the utmost quality materials and design. (14K GF Yellow Gold, 14K GF Rose Gold, Sterling Silver, and Brass) The aesthetic of IANNECI is edgy sophistication and covetable cool jewels for the professional, chic woman.

"Life is about change and being courageous, taking risks, pushing yourself to do good and to be better and to live a life that is truly fulfilling. We want other people to live life abundantly and it is our desire to create a movement in the fashion industry that will change not only the creators/designers/artists but their surroundings through our craft, jewelry design." -IANNECI Jewelry
