The Annaeux Bleus Story
Anneaux Bleus was founded by Amina , an Algiers artist residing in Colorado. She is a former fashion designer who trained in Paris under Asem Eren and was accepted at the prestigious Ecole de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne, she also studied illus-tration as her original training was in Graphic design. Her pieces are inspired by her Amazigh (indigenous North African) heritage and the complex history of her ancestors. She uses clas-sic Mediterranean techniques such as filigree fused with a contemporary artistic vision. She has a preference for mixed metals and a love of color.
Being from Algiers, the Mediterranean Sea was a constant presence in Amina's life, and it became the inspiration for Anneaux Bleus, which is French for Blue Rings. Her designs are light, sophisticated and elegant, with a timeless style. They are meticulously handcrafted by her personally and are built to last. Each piece is carefully made by hand from scratch and is released in limited releases, which makes every one of them unique in its own way.
Anneaux Bleus is innovative and creative. I am always working on new ideas and collections and I would love to get your feedback.
Designer and Jewelrysmith,
Sustainability and ethics:
Anneaux Bleus Jewelry is aware of the negative impact fast fashion and mass production jewelry has on the environment and society, which is the reason why we are committed to the slow fashion movement and make sure to make our jewelry in the most ethical way we can afford.
All our pieces are hand crafted and made in the USA, and we source our jewels including precious stones from confirmed sources (locally cut or antique gemstones so we give them a second life).
