Now celebrating over 25 years as the creative force behind the unique Canadian jewellery brand JdJ, designer John de Jong has become known across Canada and internationally for his signature couture and studio collections as well as bespoke commissions.
Since establishing the eponymous brand, John’s life-long passion for design and gems has evolved to produce distinct jewels that are easily recognised for their simplicity, quality and use of vibrant coloured stones – each piece merging design and craftsmanship seamlessly to produce dynamic creations. Art, architecture and nature are the key inspirations for his stone focused work.
Sought after and collected by a discerning clientele, JdJ is frequently seen on the red carpet and has been featured in Canadian Jeweller, Elle Canada, Hello! O, The Oprah Magazine, Fashion Magazine, The Globe & Mail and the National Post.
JdJ has also enjoyed recognition in the Canadian design community with a pair of couture sapphire “spiral” earrings being chosen for the cover of “Masters of Jewellery design in Canada” by Cora Golden.
In 2016, John de Jong was honoured to add Madame Sophie Gregoire Trudeau to the list of notable Canadian women wearing JdJ.
