Every design is thoughtfully approached taking the customer from day to night and season to season adding the perfect touch of elegance to heighten any wardrobe.
Meet the Designer
Jeanne, being a practicing attorney, needed a hobby to unwind from long days at work. She decided to follow her innate desire to nurture her passion for design by hand-crafting jewelry.
Self- taught, this hobby soon became a passion when friends and family began to take notice and often commissioned Jeanne to design her popular earrings for weddings, bridal parties and special occasions. Within a short amount of time, Jeanne’s designs began to develop a larger following around her hometown of St. Louis, Missouri as she expanded her line to bracelets, necklaces and matching sets.
She soon found success in hosting trunk shows and parties where she could make her collection available to the expanding clients collecting GiGi jewelry.
Today, Jeanne has amassed a robust collection of cross-seasonal pieces, ready- to-wear separately or as a set. From fun interchangeable bracelet configurations to a signature 8-foot long necklace and everything you can imagine in between! In GiGi there is something for every woman and every lifestyle.
Jeanne is a major supporter of community involvement, mentoring, and giving back. She is an ambassador to Kamp Kizzy, a 501c3 organization founded by Keshia Knight Pulliam. Kamp Kizzy is located in Atlanta, Georgia where Jeanne and Keshia attended undergrad at Spelman College. Kamp Kizzy’s goal is to bring girls together between the ages of 11-16 from all socioeconomic backgrounds to learn from each other, grow with each other and empower one another.
Jeanne proudly raises money and donates a percentage of her special event proceeds to various local charities in the St. Louis, Missouri area. Additionally, Jeanne designs a special piece of jewelry each year in honor of a unique cause and donates a percentage of the proceeds to select organizations benefitting area youth.
GiGi accepts inquires for product donations to causes in alignment with her passion to stimulate educational support and mentoring for children.
