Hello! My name is Jessica and I am the designer/founder of coco + peach jewelry, your one stop online jewelry boutique for chic women + men + cool girls everywhere. My mission is pretty simple: design affordable luxuries that won't break the bank and are timeless.
I launched my boutique in 2019 but have been designing jewelry for over the past decade. You could say jewelry is in my genes since almost everyone in my family and huge extended family (no joke, I have a million cousins) currently own or have owned a jewelry business in the Chicagoland area. As immigrants from Ecuador and Colombia, my family believed that owning your own business was crucial and I've always been my own boss.
Because of their jewelry businesses, I grew up surrounded by my glamorous mother and aunts, who draped themselves in diamond rings, ruby bracelets and gold necklaces even to go to the grocery store (they still do!). In my younger years, I helped my parents at their jewelry store and loved running their errands at the famed Jeweler's Row in the Loop. I have been lucky to have had a lifetime surrounded by so many people dedicated to the art of jewelry making.
I pursued a different career (I am a psychologist with a private practice), but started dipping my toes in the family business and began designing pieces for myself. Whenever I wore my jewelry, strangers would stop me and ask about them.
This led me to making my passion a reality. coco + peach jewelry was launched in May 2019 and named after my daughters' nicknames. I added a younger line, Girl, and c+p men the following year.
In addition to being affordable and cool, coco + peach is also chic + philanthropic. We teamed up as a sponsor for the Greater Chicago Food Depository and donate $1 of every sale to this organization. coco + peach is also a proud sponsor of the Whitney Reynolds Show, a nationally syndicated talk show.
Since designing my first earring (I still wear the prototype of the Carolina), I have been dedicated to creating pieces that I would wear from the office to a night out. If I won't wear it, you won't see it in the boutique. Creating modern treasures under $100 is my number one goal and I hope you love your c+p jewelry as much as I do.
