Joanne Hart is the founder and designer behind Luxe Design. Before studying jewellery design, Joanne completed a degree in sculpture at the University of Calgary. After moving to Vancouver she completed the Jewellery Art and Design program at the Vancouver Community College and created Luxe Design Jewellery in 1995. Joanne has been making jewellery since she was a child and has always been obsessed with symbolism, tiny exquisite details, and the meaning of life. Luxe Design is really a reflection of Joanne's life and as such it has changed and evolved in many ways over the years.
Luxe Design was started in 1995 as a wholesale line sold through boutiques and department stores. Jewellery hand made in 14 Karat Gold and Sterling Silver was inspired by art, travel, nature and urban life. Innovations in jewellery technology combined with earthy textures and traditional goldsmith's techniques create the foundation for the unique look and feel of Luxe Design Jewellery.
JEWELLERY THAT TELLS YOUR STORY - Years before jewellery stamps were easily purchased, Joanne collected an alphabet from the Boeing airplane factory sale and created a line of hand stamped jewellery with beautiful sayings from ancient proverbs. Customers immediately wanted those pieces personalized and the online collection of personalized jewelry has evolved from there. This collection is deeply personal and meaningful because our clients put their heart into the pieces they design and collect. You can design every detail of your totally unique jewellery; from the style and length of chain, to each charm, gemstone, name and symbol. This jewellery becomes the piece that allows the wearer to express their deepest emotions which are often difficult to express in other ways.
MEMORIAL JEWELLERY - The memorial jewellery Joanne creates is a truly special and meaningful collection. Much of these designs have evolved in an effort to serve the needs of our clients. It is an incredible honor to be able to create pieces that connect the living to those who have passed over. Names, drawings, fingerprints, handwriting, paw prints and ashes are some of the inspiration Joanne uses to create a physical reminder of a loved one. These deeply personal pieces often become the one piece of jewellery the wearer never takes off. Each original urn we offer is our unique design and is made by hand.
AMULETS & SPIRITUAL JEWELLERY - Joanne has always been drawn to the mystery and myth of symbolism and the way these symbols allow the wearer to express subtle ideas and passions that exist beyond language.
WHOLESALE - We are currently not offering wholesale pricing.
Luxe Design jewellery is made from solid sterling silver or 14 Karat Yellow Gold, unless otherwise noted. Each piece is trademarked and stamped with our trademark stamp as well as a quality stamp, guaranteeing the authenticity of the metal from which it was made. Measurements are metric.
The majority of our pieces are oxidized and matte finished. This finish brings out the detail of words in the best way and is part of our signature look. Over time the matte finish takes on a shinier patina but the matte finish can be easily restored. However, if you prefer a shiny finish, we are happy to do that by request at no additional cost.
All of the Luxe Design Jewellery pieces are designed, hand made and finished in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
