From the time she was a little girl, Jennifer Arago was enchanted by the art of design; the process of taking the purest artistic elements and moulding them into something extraordinary. Today, as Chief Designer at David Aubrey, she brings that same passion to every piece of jewellery she creates.
Jennifer was first captivated by the jewellery trade while attending nursing school at night and working as a designer’s apprentice by day. This experience was an awakening of sorts, and she quickly realised that nursing would not fuel her creative fire quite the same way.
Recognising her talent, Jennifer’s mother convinced her to start a collection of her pieces. After exhibiting her work in trade shows, Jennifer caught the eye of agents in Atlanta and New York, and David Aubrey Jewellery made its debut in 1996. Generating $3 million in sales in just a few years, she had a revelation: making jewellery was not merely a hobby; it was her career destiny. When David Aubrey outgrew its first studio in Soho, Jennifer moved her team to a larger space in Jersey City, which currently serves as company headquarters.
In styles ranging from sophisticated to whimsical, David Aubrey pieces are timeless—a bold statement for the moment as well as ten years from now. David Aubrey has amassed a worldwide following, sold in Japan, Dubai, South America, Australia, the Caribbean, and across Europe through stores and catalogs such as Anthropologie, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Boston Proper, ASOS, Fenwick, Gilt, and W Hotels. All pieces are handcrafted in the U.S. by skilled artisans who share Jennifer’s passion for quality and originality.
