She was born in Paris but moved around a lot as a child. Owing to her parents, who were both active artists, she had artistic inclinations since a tender age. In the 1970s, she was taught to paint by artist Andy Warhol. As she stepped into her teenage years, she started painting. She then organized many exhibitions in the 1980s. In her early 20s, she became interested in further artistic endeavors, which eventually made her enter the domain of jewelry designing. She also ventured into home designing later and has designed luxury apartments all over the world. She is best known, however, for designing the ‘Jade Towers’ in Mumbai, India, and New York, US. She has also worked as a lingerie model. She has made several TV appearances over the years.

Early Life & Childhood
Jade Jagger was born Jade Jezebel Jagger, on October 21, 1971, in Paris, France, to Mick Jagger and his first wife, Bianca Jagger. Her father was one of the most popular American musicians of his time. Her mother was an actor and a social activist. Her birth was a huge event, as she was international rockstar Mick Jagger’s first-born child from his first marriage.
Jade led a very comfortable life ever since she was a child. Even though she was a British national and was born in Paris, she spent her early childhood years traveling around the world with her parents. She accompanied her father on many of his national and international tours.
Jade spent a lot of her early childhood years in New York. Owing to her parents’ careers, she was always surrounded by artists. This led her to become interested in artistic pursuits since a tender age.
She did not have a peaceful childhood. Her parents saw very less of each other all year, and Bianca mostly stayed with her mother. Toward the late 1970s, her parents filed for divorce. However, she stayed connected with her father even after her mother won her custody.
Whenever she stayed in New York, she spent a lot of time with Andy Warhol, who was a popular artist and a family friend of the Jaggers. He spent a lot of time in his workshops and took Jade with him on many occasions. This led Jade to develop an interest in art and colors and helped contribute to the artistic side of her personality.
She started working as an artist in her teenage years. With a little help from Andy, she organized several exhibitions of her works. Eventually, she turned to jewelry designing as a career.
She also joined an art history course in Florence, Italy.

She was a muse for famed jewelry designer Matthew Williamson. She learned the basics of jewelry designing from him and also traveled around the world for inspiration. She developed her unique style, which was an amalgamation of different cultures and their traditional designs, including those from India and Africa.
In 1997, she started her own jewelry designing company, ‘Jade Inc.’ She had moved away from the clichéd western styles and had incorporated an eastern flavor in her designs instead, which made them popular with the American elite.

‘Garrard,’ as a company, was iconic. They secured contracts with the British royal family and were assigned to design fashion tiaras and other accessories. Later, the company was acquired by a Canadian organization and was turned into a new luxury brand.
Jade, apart from working with ‘Garrard,’ also works independently for many international designers, such as Omar Torres, a legendary name in the international jewelry designing industry.
Jade’s contract with ‘Garrard’ was extended in 2003, as she had helped the company touch new grounds.

She also designed the flagship store of the company, which is located in London.
