Our Founder & Designer
Before dreaming up Annachich Jewelry, Becky Constantinides was a graphic designer with an obvious void in her world. She wanted to design things that were both meaningful and tangible. Inspired by images in architectural books, Becky began transforming architectural elements into laser cut jewelry in 2010.
After discovering her passion for adorning others with jewelry she'd created, Becky enrolled in the Jewelry Technician program at the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts in 2012. During her time at the school, she was chosen to intern under the school's Founder and Master Goldsmith, Alan Revere.
In late 2013, armed with the skills she needed to launch the well-crafted, luxury jewelry line of her dreams, Becky released her first full collection of brass and silver jewelry inspired by architecture.
Annachich luxury designer jewelry has been featured in the SF Chronicle Style Section, Ladies Home Journal, Accessories Magazine, Seventeen Magazine, Harper's Bazaar Singapore, Family Circle, New York Post, New York Daily News, Where SF, Racked, and on numerous other blogs, magazines and websites.

Born and raised in San Diego, Becky has been surrounded by cultural and architectural inspiration in the San Francisco bay area since 2004. She is married to our web developer, Eric Constantinides. They have a spunky papillon with giant ears.
Our Inspiration & Our Process
Annachich Jewelry preserves and celebrates historic architecture through modern jewelry design. By taking cues from architectural craftsmanship of the past, Annachich embodies an unanticipated fusion of ornate details, geoometric shapes, and repetition. Becky calls her unique design style "ornate minimalism."
Each piece of jewelry begins as an image of an architectural element on a historic building. We digitally render the architectural then 3d print models of our designs. The models are then cast locally into various metals. The architecturally inspired metal castings are then hand fabricated into finished jewelry in our San Francisco Bay Area workshop.
All of our fine jewelry is made from recycled sterling silver or 14k gold. Our fashion jewelry is plated using an award winning environmentally friendly process. We are committed to supporting local vendors and vendors with ethical practices through out our supply chain.
