I'm wondering if anyone has tried jewellery from this designer? I came across her collections online and they are so "me". But I can only order unseen from the website, have never seen her pieces in person and I'd love to know what you think of the quality.


I've been looking for a tasteful white gold / diamond cross and this is the one I have fallen for:

I love the way the chain is fixed to each side and it's about the right size, 3/4" for my every day look. She has gorgeous matching huggie hoops as well...


Thanks for any thoughts you can share :smile:

I saw the collection of earrings with attachable dangles in person at Ylang. They are substantial, but some are almost too ornate IMO. There were styles I liked though.

I've been wearing Jude Frances earrings for several years now. I have the huggies in YG and WG and assorted charms in both colors both from JF and from other vendors. Since I do not have pierced ears and they made a clip, it was fantastic. The best investment in earrings I could hope to make.

Mostly I wear single stones, though I have a few that are more ornate. One pair I had was a little weird, so my jeweler split it into two different style charms which worked really well.

The company isn't that great. It's hard to find inventory of what you see on their website and they are notoriously bad at answering questions and getting back to people about things.

Also, they nearly never go on sale, but once in awhile some of their less popular charms go on sale.

Neiman's, who really supported them initially, just stopped selling them.

If you want to buy the style of Jude Frances, Frances just left JF and started her own thing. They make much less expensive charms out of less precious materials but similar vibe designs:

Interesting info Saligator!

I have a pair of the diamond clover hoops and love them. I bought the earrings at Neimans, but they didn't have a large selection from that brand.

Here is a link to clover hoops pic.

I love her huggies. They're the only ones I've seen on the market that are actually what I call a huggie. I have contacted them about making them in Platinum as well.

DId you ever hear back from them? That is the problem, they never seem to get back to me when I have had questions.

No I didn't, but I am not concerned since it's not in budget til our construction is done.
