I’m very simplistic when it comes to jewellery, I like to invest in pieces that I know i’ll be wearing for years to come.
I love the idea of being able to personalise your jewellery, creating something with sentiment or perhaps just something you love.
The nickname ‘Lali’ has always had personal significance to me because it was given to me by my best friend Nathalie shortly after we met and has stuck with me ever since – it therefore has come to symbolise the special bond that we share between us. It has occurred to me over the years though that it isn’t necessarily the easiest of names to remember, and often gets confused with Laly, Lili or even La La (my personal favourite)…..well no more.
The ‘Alphabet’ collection from Moncia Vinader is made up of individual letters, each one typographically unique that you can pair with a selection of ornate pendants. I think these make the most beautiful gift to give to a loved one – to place your initials side by side or perhaps as a token of friendship – an adult version of a friendship necklace that will always be worn close to your heart. Or perhaps you’re like me, and you’ll give it as a gift to yourself … so that your friends remember your name.
