The Jianhui London collection makes a bold statement with designs that echo the power of nature, its beauty and its uniqueness. Jianhui‘s love of the natural world also inspired the belief that we must be conscious consumers with respect for our planet & environment. Sustainability is not a trend for Jianhui London it is at the heart of what the brand stands for. All of the jewellery is made to the highest standards, often using recycled or upcycled materials that would otherwise go to waste. Kind to the planet and incredibly light to wear. For every brand, there’s a beginning.
Brought up in a poor, rural village, his mother named him Jianhui – which means ‘building a splendid life’. Jianhui found escape through nature. Surrounded by mountains and lush green fields, he developed a love of flowers and seasons. Jianhui was never formally trained in fashion, jewellery-making or design, everything he learned was self-taught, freeing him to shun trends and be independent. His jewellery has an urban edge that reflects the city that became his home.
Today, Jianhui‘s designs are loved by style icon Iris Apfel, who continues to embody timeless style at nearly 100 years old. Lily Tomlin proudly wears Jianhui’s jewellery in ‘Grace and Frankie’. Layering up the different styles and textures to make an individual look using pearls, straws, leather, various wooden beads, knotted rubber or fabric with thought provoking messages. The brand is influenced by the creative, confident women who wear it.
