Designer, Theresa Bruno was looking for a way to put a twist on the classic jewelry she once was surrounded with as she grew up in the south. She found it in her collection of ultra-feminine Tahitian pearls. Launched in 2010, she launched her company, Jordan Alexander, named fondly after her children. Bruno’s aesthetic for the brand places unexpected bohemian touches with twisted strands of quartz and diamond-encrusted ornaments. Although they can be worn as every-day pieces, their elegantly chic quality makes them more of collector’s items with their mix of color and organic elements.
