Jessica's World

Jessica de Lotz creates jewellery with meaning, compositions that combine nostalgia and story-telling with modern-day influences. Inspired by her beloved late father, an antiquarian book dealer, Jessica grew up surrounded by beautiful antique books that her father would care for “as if they were a friend of mine”. Jessica drew on this appreciation when she became a collector of found objects - everything from vintage handbags, sepia photographers to miniature matchboxes - they all became a playground for Jessica’s imagination.

Stories that jewellery can tell

The essence of every JdL piece is uniqueness - pieces tailored entirely to each wearer, inviting questions of meaning and symbolism. Whether it’s celebrating life and love or commemorating loss, Jessica creates truly special, one-of-a-kind, modern heirlooms that wearers cherish forever and pass to future generations.

"I love the way Jessica tells whimsical stories through her jewellery - which even translates to the beautiful way in which they are packaged! I’m lucky enough to have had several pieces of JdL jewellery over the years. They’re modern heirlooms - and I love them."
