The jewellery emporium that screams major cool.
I Candi is the creative brainchild of owner and designer Claire Howton. Claire is of British and Barbadian descent and was brought up experiencing the best of both cultures.
Claire has had a lifelong passion for creating beautiful jewellery. She honed her craft studying design at Art College in London. Ten years ago she swapped the buzz of the metropolis for the laid-back cool of Barbados.
I Candi started as a cocktail party pop-up store in 2004 – where Claire’s vibrant and dynamic designs were soon catching the eye of visitors to the Island’s most prestigious hotels.
Since then, Claire’s designer eye has overseen the creation of I Candi’s flagship boutique, now situated in Holetown, St James, on the platinum West Coast of Barbados.
I Candi has established itself as a jewellery emporium that screams major cool. For more than half a decade, Claire’s uber chic clientele have made I Candi their go-to store for a slice of something truly special.
Claire highlights her creative muse by working combining precious metals with the most beautiful semi-precious stones, crystals and fresh water pearls. The diversity and uniqueness of her handmade creations continue to delight clients from the most exciting cities across the globe.
Recently, I Candi has flown the shores of its island home and taken up residence within the renowned and prestigious walls of the Henri Bendel luxury department store on New York’s 5th Avenue – much to the delight of Henri’s sophisticated and metropolitan clientele. And now it’s here…in Wetherby no less! We’re delighted to be stocking this global cool brand. Call in and check out our ever-changing collection.
