From the Duchess of Cambridge to Rihanna, some of today’s most extraordinary women have worn the versatile creations of jewellery designer Annoushka Ducas. From her studio in Chelsea, London, we chat with her about the latest collection from her eponymous brand, and her personal relationship with jewellery.
What does jewellery mean to you?
Jewellery is a very emotive and intensely personal thing for me and my designs are reflective of this: It is so important to me that every piece should tell a story and have a very particular meaning for the wearer. Playfulness and vibrancy are at the heart of all of my designs, combined with a strong narrative and a real sense of romance. Every piece is designed to be cherished and handed down: I want my collections to sit alongside heirloom jewels in a fresh, contemporary way. I am inspired by everything – from my travels to my daughters Chloe and Marina, who always ensure that I have my finger on the pulse.
