A dreamer and curious about life, Alexandra cultivates a natural elegance, simple and chic, with a touch of eccentricity. And above all a light which is her own. It is no doubt this glow that has led her to crystallise her scintillating imagination. These diadems that she has worn for years, or these large rings, pieces that she began by imagining for herself and have ended up forming a collection.
In reality, it all began when she was a little girl who built for herself a universe that glittered. Stays in Tunisia, where she spent most of her holidays. Alexandra wore jewellery at an early age, and swore by jewels wherever she went.
After university studies, she completed a training course at the GIA (Gemological Institute of America) in New York. This period, active and abundant with events in the artistic milieu, encouraged her desire to create jewels in her own style.
She decided to gain experience. For nearly a year Alexandra trained with a renowned auction house and a dealer in precious stones. Her thirst for independence and freedom led to a series of trips to fairs all over the world and to fascinating encounters.
She realised her dream in 2008 and founded her own brand.
In her studio setting, nestling at the foot of St Peter’s Cathedral in Geneva, she presents her collections, the fruit of a sensitive eye that misses nothing. Rings, cufflinks, pendants, necklaces, earrings and head jewellery, each have their story to tell. Opening the doors of Alexandra Darier’s world is entering a universe where one travels through ambiances with different notes. From an old Cuban bar, Tunisian doors, Panamanian artists’ dressing rooms, through ancient Italian perfumeries…the fantasy and memories of Alexandra Darier compose a luminous jewellery dream.
