At live.work.think.play — we can talk about anything. Here is another brand worth the conversation.
Jewelry can take any wardrobe from ordinary to amazing — and an inspired jewelry designer can bring more to your wardrobe than just outward beauty. One such maker is Mirabelle, a British based Fair Trade* company with pieces are created with “love and soul”. (We can all use a bit of that on a daily basis).
Founded by Veronique Henry, the daughter of a Parisian silver maker, Mirabelle Jewellery Ltd exudes a quality of understated elegance. Worn by many (including the Duchess of Cambridge. She chose the Lolita Earring at $44) the brand has been seen on numerous editorial pages.
As described at Mirabelle’s site, pieces are created:
“With a strong belief in the power of jewellery to uplift the spirits, collections are imbued with symbolism and meaning, from crystal stones to ancient talismans.”
The brand includes a number of curated collections, including a British made charm collection, a fair trade collection and a crystal collection. (Personally, I was drawn to the descriptions of their crystal pieces, which may be telling me that’s what I need to be wearing).
Here are the links to our favorite picks. (BTW, these items are affordable.)
