Duchessa Handmade Jewelry

Drawing inspiration from the past, Duchessa designer Ilana Leah has created a line of unique handmade jewelry comprised of quality natural materials including plated metals, genuine freshwater pearls and semiprecious gemstones.
 
Handmade jewelry inspired by the past

Each item in Duchessa's “Women of Fame and Fable” collection is an ode to the exceptional qualities or personality of a female from the past. These original handmade jewelry designs are modern interpretations of each character ranging from dainty decorations to bold statement pieces, all unmistakably feminine. These handmade jewelry collections are a celebration of great women of yesterday, as well as the great women of today who look back to them.
 
Inspired by powerful women of the past including Anne Boleyn, Marie Antoinette, Joan of Arc, Melusine and Queen Maeve, Duchessa's handmade gemstone jewelry meshes the styles of ages past with modern sensibilities. Fashion forward with an eye to the past, the designs are trendy and versatile.
 
Custom jewelry designs
 
Duchessa is best known for offering the handmade Anne Boleyn B necklace replica, with over 6 years experience in carefully handcrafting each to the client's specifications. Each custom Anne Boleyn replica necklace includes a hand sculpted pendant, plated findings and genuine freshwater pearls.

We love custom designs and would be happy to create a one-of-a-kind handmade jewelry just for you. All of Duchessa's unique handmade jewelry is crafted in the designer’s studio in New York, never mass produced. Carefully handcrafted from genuine semi-precious stones and gold and silver plated metals.
