At the heart of Aurelia & Pierre is Amokeye's unique and personal perspective.
As a British-Nigerian woman making a mark in a traditional industry, I know about doing things differently. I am passionate about creating a welcoming space to discover contemporary luxury, and about designing fine jewellery that suits the diverse life that the modern woman leads.
RICH AND VARIED INFLUENCES
Born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria, I moved to England at the age of 10; settling into boarding school in the Dorset countryside. My studies in science and language took me to university in London, where I live today.
My life has been a study in duality and contrast; Nigeria and England, science and art, city and countryside landscapes. I believe that in life and design, the coming together of contrasting elements can create magic.
My designs draw on my natural eye for balance and detail, honed by a nearly lifelong love of luxury and fine craft. I am a luxury fashion enthusiast and a fine jewellery curator.
In my social circles I’ve become the go-to for fashion and fine jewellery advice, which has inspired my approach to Aurelia & Pierre - offering honest advice, expert guidance, and access to the finest materials and craftspeople to bring ideas to life.
