Co-Founder & CEO
Jessica Warch is the co-founder of Kimai, an innovative fine jewellery brand leading a new way for modern luxury, uniquely using lab-grown diamonds and recycled gold. Jessica studied at Cass Business School and started out her career as operations manager at Appear Here, before leaving to fund her start-up; Kimai. Jessica grew up in Antwerp, surrounded by diamond traders in her family, so from a young age she was drawn to the emotional value behind jewellery. But it was her frustration with an outdated and opaque industry, which drew Jessica to partner with childhood friend Sidney Neuhaus to build their brand and provide transparency to the diamond jewellery world, without compromising on luxury.
Since launching Kimai in 2018, the brand has been worn by Meghan Markle, Emma Watson and Jessica Alba, and is stocked by prestigious retailers including Browns.
Jessica Warch is featured in Forbes 30 under 30 and Kimai was named by Fast Company as one of the 10 most innovative companies in the world.
