Alexandra Darier, a Swiss national, was born in 1978. After graduating from the University of Geneva with a degree in Political Science, she moved to New York in 2003 to study at the Gemological Institute of America. During this year she discovered her passion for jewellery design. In 2004 she returned to Geneva, gaining professional experience with Christie's and a precious gem dealer. In 2006, she launched her own jewellery line, 'Alexandra Darier, Bijoux Genève', and opened her first showroom in Geneva. Alexandra Darier's creations are designed for the chic, yet bohemian, modern woman. She works with yellow gold, mother-of-pearl and semi-precious stones to create graceful and feminine jewellery, which is both contemporary and nostalgic.
