The Alexia Connellan brand is an intricately detailed collection of precious stones and metals in bright and exquisite colours. The Designer has always been inspired by architecture, vibrant tropical colours, and lush nature. Alexia originally hails from Jamaica, with her University, Gemology and Jewellery Design studies pursued on the East Coast including Columbia University where she received a BA in Art History and Visual Arts. She then pursued continuing education in sculpture. Fascinated by gems since her childhood, when she learned that Vikings used the pleochroism of iolite to precisely locate the position of the sun even on cloudy days, she began to seriously collect gemstones.
