Alison Jefferies discovered her passion for personalized bridal accessories in late 2011 when she was planning her own wedding and was dissatisfied with the jewelry offerings she found at bridal shops. She opted to make a set of matching jewelry for her own bridesmaids instead, and just a few short months later opened an online shop for her creations.
A self-taught jewelry designer and artisan, she founded J’Adorn Designs in early 2012 and has been refining her craft ever since. She is inspired by the beauty of the natural world and the individual love stories of the couples she works with. She strives to honor these love stories with excellent craftsmanship as exquisite as the love they reflect and prides herself on the meticulous attention to detail, high quality, and intuitive customer service for which her work has become known.
J’Adorn Designs is located in Baltimore, MD, where Owner/Designer Alison Jefferies calls home and has been a destination for personalized bridal accessories since its inception in 2012. Our signature style is one of timeless elegance with a modern twist, perfect for the sentimental bride with an eye for detail.

01: How soon can I expect to receive my jewelry after I place an order?
If you purchase jewelry from the pre-designed collections in our online shop, you can expect to receive your order within 4 to 6 weeks of placing your order. This timeframe is due to the fact that each piece is made to order, which enables us to easily accommodate customization requests. (Note: If you would like us to make customizations to your order, please make your request via our contact form prior to purchasing to ensure that we can make the changes you desire.)
For custom and bespoke jewelry, a minimum of 6 to 8 weeks is typical. Details for individual custom orders will be determined during our consultation.
Rush orders can be placed by request. We take these on a case by case basis, and potential expedition costs are covered by the client. Please feel free to reach out with any questions if you need to place a rush order!
02: What is your policy on returns? What if my jewelry purchase breaks?
Jewelry may be returned for a store credit if it is sent back in original condition with its receipt and original packagin within 30 days of the original purchase.
Any piece of jewelry you purchase comes with a guarantee that it will last you in a durable way. If your piece breaks due to regular wear and tear within six months of purchase, just send it back along with your receipt and we will replace or repair it for free. Returns after the six months mark will be done on a discretionary basis with applicable fees determined by case.
03: What type of metals do you use?
We use a variety of metals to offer a broad price and quality range. Most commonly you will see sterling silver, gold filled, silver plated, and gold plated metals listed in our product descriptions. Finer quality materials are available for bespoke orders. For custom orders, we will work with you to determine which option is the best choice for your particular design.
04: Do you have a physical shop I can visit?
We do not have a physical retail shop, but we often participate in seasonal pop-up shops and trunk shows to bring our pieces closer to the community. If you’d like to know when and where we will be, subscribe to our newsletter and keep your eye on the J’Adorn Designs blog for current news.
If you’d like to host a trunk show or include our products in your pop-up shop, please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
05: I have a retail shop or boutique. Is your jewelry available for wholesale and batch orders?
Yes! Please contact us at email@example.com for more information on wholesale orders and to request a line sheet.
06: How does the custom design process work?
After an initial retainer to reserve dates on the designer’s schedule, we will schedule a consultation in person or via video chat to discuss your taste, budget, and other preferences
After our consultation, we will provide you with preliminary sketches to review and approve, with two rounds of revisions if needed.
Once the sketches have been approved, we will send a design proposal and invoice outlining prices and materials for each individual piece.
Full payment is due at the time of the proposal/invoice, after which we get right to work on your custom accessories order.
When your jewelry order is finished, we gift wrap each piece by hand using a keepsake muslin bag and gift box, tied with a ribbon in the color of your choice, then send it straight to you!
- Please note: custom and bespoke orders begin at a minimum of $250.00
