Mostly Lovin’: Alighieri Jewellery

Odyssey Necklace

Alighieri is a collection of jewellery borne of Dante Alighieri’s “Divine Comedy”. Each magical piece relates to one of the poet’s 100 poems. Designed by London-based Rosh Mahtani, each piece is cast in 24ct gold-plated bronze. One can imagine unearthing each gem on the shores of some distant ancient land, lending to the illusion of found treasures.

The collection is the type of jewellery one simply has to touch, and I for one would like to get my hands on each and every enchanting piece!

LARA MELCHIOR2241-filtered

Every now and then jewellery designer comes along that really peeks my interest. As you know, I developed a love of jewellery rather late in the day but the type of adornment that peeks my interest tends to have that “I made this myself” feel. Lara Melchior is just such a designer. Original, instantly covet-able with a lovingly hand-made feel, Melchior’s designs are simply one of a kind. Melchior has been super-altruistic and designed an affordable line for super-fashion-forward Scandinavian brand Look into it mes amis! Bisous.

I am currently very much in love with these petits tactile beauties from Pascale Monvoisin’s current collection. The price point is very affordable too. Sadly, I can only wear precious metals so can only admire many of the more striking pieces. Alors, for now I’ll settle for a few of these wonderful silk-mix bracelets.

Big Apple Keeper Earring

Big Apple Keeper Earring

After much wishful thinking the fabulous Ms Bidermann has finally put together a collection of fine pieces. They are the type of pieces the eye is at once drawn to. Rose gold, sweetie coloured gems make it near impossible not to want to own one of these deliciously different trinkets. I for one have my eye on the “Big Apple Keeper Earring”. Can you say “Christmas gift anyone”?

Anndra Neen Jewellery

Anndra Neen

Anndra Neen Jewellery has to be seen (and touched!) to be believed. If you are looking for a statement piece be it a cuff or pendant alors ne cherchez pas plus loin! It is without a doubt some of the most innovative pieces I have come across. I imagine it is the type of jewellery one would be constantly admiring from various angles and would be the subject of many a conversation. Established in April 2009 by sisters Phoebe and Annette Stephens, Anndra Neen has a growing legion of well-heeled admirers.

Their grandmother, Annette Nancarrow, was a painter, sculptor and jewellery designer and collaborated with the Muralist Movement in Mexico. Anndra Neen has an impressive vintage to out do in their Grandmother as her pieces were collected by Frida Kahlo and Anaïs Nin, to name but a few but with personalities such as the First Lady and Drew Barrymore as fans they’re not doing too badly!

YOUnique Jewellery: Red Hot Ambers


Last week a friend of mine asked me whether I would be interested in reviewing a jewellery line well established in Spain, Norway, Denmark, Poland, to name but a few and up and coming in the UK. As a blogger, one is always curious to discover the “next big thing”. I am happy to report YOUnique Jewellery may just be it! The Amber Fever Collection 2012 is inspired by amber’s natural beauty in its raw and purest form. The bespoke pieces are a wonderful juxtaposition of traditional craftsmanship and modern design. Drawing from the natural beauty of Poland, designer Katarzyna Hernas uses cloudy, clear and brown amber interspersed with sterling silver and waxed string to create truly one of a kind pieces.
Baltic amber (succinite) is widely believed to hold enchanting powers in its native region and is both cherished and worn for its protective powers. With prices starting at £65, my personal favourite from the collection is the “Power of Amber” friendship bracelet for him, (below). It is the perfect mix of urban sophistication and luxe materials which in my opinion is always un beau mariage! x

Alice Cicolini Fine Jewellery

Jewellery designer Alice Cicolini is in a league of her own. Inspired by the Silk Routes, the ornate pieces are handmade in India in the studio of one of the last Jaipuri Meenakari trained in the enamel traditions of Persia, handed down from generation to generations over 200 years. One thing that is evident upon examining Cicolini’s designs is the sheer level of craftsmanship. The designs are stunningly intricate, but with collections entitled with names such as; “Jodhpur”, “Temple” and “Chattri” is it any wonder?

Snakes On My Radar!

I have realised that I may have developed something of une dépendance peu, but I would imagine that like all addictions, you don’t really see them coming? I have quite the collection of snake embellished jewellery and a very distinct hankering for further pieces. Brother and sister designer duo Zoe & Morgan seem to be catering quite well to my on-going fixation. See the rather gorgeous eternity bangle which I have had my eye on for nigh on a year but cannot decide between silver or gold…who said the life of a Blogger was easy? X
