Welcome to Penache! My name is Kimberly Collins and I’m the chief jewelry designer & owner of Penache.
What is Penache?
Penache is not a word you’ll find in the dictionary. It derived from the words Penacho and Panache. Historically, both words are defined as a tuft or plume of feathers worn in a headdress or helmet. Today, dictionaries define Panache as a flamboyant manner, style, or flair. The definition comes close to our philosophy, but not quite. Like panache, the jewelry we create is stylish, but unlike panache it’s not flamboyant. I decided to replace “Pan” with “Pen” not just a choice of pronunciation (more softer, subtle sound), but to give a new definition. I describe Penache as the casual chic version of its cousin Panache, never flashy or loud. Our jewelry philosophy is to create simple yet elegant jewelry that you’ll want to wear again and again.
