Jude Steele and Frances Gadbois met by chance at a charity event in Texas in 2002. The two women became fast friends and soon thereafter launched their namesake jewelry company, with Frances overseeing design and operations, and Jude leading sales and marketing. The concept of a wardrobe of small diamond hoop earrings with interchangeable charms was the foundation of their venture together. Early success and requests from customers brought additional extensions to the line, which now features necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings across several collections.
Although their business partnership has ended, JudeFrances continues on with Jude at the helm. The company’s design for themselves and women they can relate to — smart, luxe sophisticates. With Frances’ classic design sense and personal style juxtaposing Jude’s edgier look, their pieces have quickly become go-to classics in every fashionable woman’s jewel box, and new collections and launched every year, offering endless variations of the JudeFrances look.
