about jane taylor
Jane Taylor is an award winning jewelry designer, a lover of all things iridescent, and a sucker for puppies. As an avid gardener, cook, traveler, and involved business owner, she rarely sits still. The jewelry she designs captures the spirit of the on-the-go woman, like herself: it’s fun, it’s elegant, and it’s wearable everyday. In fact, it was this “totally everyday” concept that defined the “JT Classic” collection that launched her company in 1995. Her newest collections link the past to the present through their continued embodiment of “totally everyday” wear-ability.
From diamonds to brilliant colored gemstones and unique pearls, Taylor’s designs excel at showcasing these materials’ natural beauty. Set in sterling silver and high karat white, yellow and rose gold, her creations are constructed as heirloom quality pieces- always current yet timeless, and durable enough to be passed down through generations. With her insight into what women want to own and wear, her desire to expand on concepts she feels strongly for, and a willingness to take risks on new ideas as a designer, Jane Taylor has distinguished herself in the world of fine jewelry.
“When my customers and the press ask me to define my design identity, the one constant I keep coming up with is change. It might sound contradictory, but to evolve creatively and have a successful business at the same time, you need to make sure you maintain your integrity and your original point of view while being able to adapt with the times. This doesn’t mean following trends, it means following your own instincts to figure out what women will need to expand their jewelry wardrobes each year, how they can personalize what you are creating and make it their own,” says Taylor.
A testament to having followed her gut instincts, Taylor has received numerous professional accolades: two AGTA spectrum awards, two DeBeers Diamonds Today awards and a Town & Country Couture Design award in the diamond category.
Jane Taylor Jewelry is still dedicated to the same ideas the company was founded upon: creativity, commitment to the customer, quality, and making sparkling jewels accessible. Always hand made, Jane Taylor’s jewelry is heirloom quality, stylish and easy-to-wear, totally everyday.
