The Vincent Peach Collection was seeded in 2006 during an extended sea-faring sabbatical navigating some of the world’s most lush waters and exotic locales. Founder Vincent Peach, having successfully built a career for himself as an art and antiquities expert, had sold his Nashville, Tennessee auction house and antique and collectible businesses, and was looking for a new way to channel his creative juices not knowing the journey would involve an unexpected and surprising return to his ancestral roots.
As an artist, on that yacht surrounded by the natural, innate beauty of earth and sea, Vincent began to meld his past and future as he envisioned the organic shapes and elements he was seeing mirrored and handcrafted into jeweled pieces of art created from the rare pearls, gems and hand-woven metals that had inspired him as a child.
You see, Vincent’s father James was another type of artist, a visionary who in addition to owning a chain of Fine Jewelry Stores throughout the southeast, honed his artisan skills in the largest Pearl factories and production plants around the world, and was considered in the industry to be one of the foremost authorities –a “Pearl Man”.
Vincent’s early exposure to rare gems and jewels garnered as an adolescent on a jewelers’ bench in one of his father’s stores, would now, years later, define his future. With his entrepreneurial spirit impassioned in 2008, Vincent launched the first Vincent Peach collection featuring hand-tooled designs fabricated with the finest Black Tahitian and freshwater pearls, pave diamonds, gemstones, hand-woven sterling silver rhodium chains, Vermeil, soft tanned leathers and exotic skins. He sold pieces to jewelry, specialty and department stores nationwide and, in 2013, Vincent opening his own signature Vincent Peach gallery and retail store in Nashville.
Today, Vincent continues to push the boundaries of art and design with each new collection through his accessibility to the world’s most beautiful natural gems, innovative designs and distinctive material choices. Every Vincent Peach design is cast and set in the USA.
The collections have garnered a worldwide following and are housed in the private collections of some of the most distinctive style and fashion trendsetters, including many celebrities and entertainers. From the red carpet to the wardrobes of the modern American women – a Vincent Peach design is an innovative choice for everyone.
