Born into a renowned jewellery family that catered to Royalty and other connoisseurs of fine jewels, Lucy Kilislian was inspired at an early age to devote her life to innovating and expanding on her family’s tradition of designing and creating beautiful, valuable and unique jewellery.
After graduating with a combined honors degree, Lucy set off to the prestigious Gemological Institute of America where she developed a discerning eye for precious gems and mastered all aspects of jewellery design and manufacturing.
Upon graduating, Lucy travelled the globe to source the materials and inspiration to create the custom-designed pieces sought after by her growing list of clients that include A-list celebrities, socialites, professional athletes, political figures and Royalty.
For over a decade, Lucy’s life consisted of nonstop travelling, designing, creating and delivering one-of-a-kind pieces to celebrities for red carpet and fashion events, TV interviews, photo/video shoots and private parties across North America, the Caribbean and Europe.
Standing out at some of the most glamorous events in the world, her fabulous jewellery designs caught the attention of fashion designers, stylists, and media who began asking where they could find her collection. It was then that Lucy decided to create her own collection – Candy Ice – after years of specializing only in custom design.
"I was inspired by my clients who, when faced with last-minute wardrobe changes for important events, needed me to quickly adapt the colour and style of their jewellery on the spot. Out of these fashion challenges, my Candy Ice collection of transformative jewellery was born.” (Lucy Kilislian)
