JdJ is the unique Jewelry House led by Creative Director John de Jong.
With a discerning international following, JdJ is known for distinct Couture and Studio collections as well as bespoke commissions.
Designer John de Jong had a fascination for gemstones from an early age. Influenced by the rich art and jewelry culture of Europe where he spent most of his youth, his evolution to jewelry design was natural.
In 1995, with degrees in Art History, Gemology, and studies at Sotheby’s in London, John pursued his long time passion establishing the eponymous brand, JdJ.
Now, after 17 years as creative director, his designs are easily recognized for their simplicity, quality and use of vibrant colored stones that are his signature; each piece merging design and craftsmanship seamlessly to produce dynamic creations. Architecture, art and travel are the main inspirations for these stone-focused gems.
JdJ has enjoyed significant recognition with Christie’s – Geneva choosing the House among a select few contemporary jewelers to create unique gems for their Magnificent – Jewels auction. JdJ pieces are also frequently worn by Hollywood’s finest and regularly featured in major fashion publications, including O-the Oprah Magazine, Elle, and Hello!
The JdJ story continued to evolve in 2012 with the launch of the chic “JdJ Jewel Box” at the newly opened Ritz – Carlton Hotel Toronto.
Travelling between the United States, Switzerland and Canada, John’s designer’s eye keeps exploring, creating fresh collections for a style-setting clientele.
