BACK­GROUND

A self-taught de­signer, Jes­sica Mccor­mack grew up in new Zealand sur­rounded by vin­tage jew­ellery and an­tiques. Her fa­ther had an auc­tion house, and it was there that she came to ap­pre­ci­ate the beauty of gem­stones.

Part­ner­ship

Af­ter an in­tern­ship in sotheby’s jew­ellery depart­ment in the UK, Mccor­mack brought her epony­mous brand to life, part­ner­ing with two peo­ple who shared her pas­sion for di­a­monds: rachel slack, the grand­daugh­ter of late de Beers chair­man Harry Op­pen­heimer, and Michael rosen­feld, a third­gen­er­a­tion di­a­mond dealer and art col­lec­tor. The trio set up shop in lon­don’s May­fair dis­trict in a grand 19th-cen­tury town­house with interiors de­signed by Mccor­mack and filled with a col­lec­tion of art and pre­cious an­tiques.

de­sign sig­na­ture

Mccor­mack’s aim is to cre­ate jewels that are as ex­tra­or­di­nary as the di­a­monds she uses. Most of her pieces are unique and are of­ten in­spired by history. each piece is de­signed with an eye and an ear for peo­ple’s per­sonal sto­ries, and cre­ated by hand in the Mccor­mack work­shop in May­fair.
