THE BEST PLACES TO SHOP JEWELLERY ONLINE

We all love shopping for jewellery from our plush beds, browsing unhurriedly through all that what is on offer, and imagining how each jewel would look when worn. May I remind you to not forget to celebrate your achievements by treating yourself to an exquisite jewel: there is no more satisfying way to reward yourself! Sophie Lauren said in her autobiography ” Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow: My Life as a Fairy Tale” :

“Each piece had reminded me not only of the movies that I’d worked on, but all of the emotions at the time. I could relive everything by wearing a necklace around my neck or a ring on my finger.”

Here, I have put together a list of my favourite online stores selling gorgeous, exquisite and contemporary jewels from all over the world: just a little source of inspiration for your future shopping!

FARFETCH

Are you looking for a much-coveted piece of costume jewellery by Lanvin, but it is sold out everywhere in your country?! Then Farfetch.com is the online shopping destination for you. If you are after something that you cannot find in your hometown, then have a browse on Farfetch.com: you can shop at faraway independent boutiques from your comfy sofa without the need or the expense to travel! On  Farfetch.com you will also find the best individually curated collections consisting of well-known names, as well as emerging designers.

MODA OPERANDI

Moda Operandi is the place to shop for jewellery months ahead of anyone else: here, you will be able to get a piece of the new collection straight from the trunk show! Alternatively, if you looking for a that special piece right now, you can browse through their boutique section.

Upcoming designer trunk shows include GEMOLOGUE’s favourite designers Sybarite and Vickisarge. You can read the full article about Liza’s visit to Sybarite at Arts Club and interview with Vicki Sarge at her boutique on Elizabeth Street in London.

JEWEL STREET

Jewel Street is the newest online shopping destination for jewellery lovers where you can source fine jewellery directly from over 300 luxury designers and independent boutiques from four corners of the world. Jewel street gives you the ability to purchase big-ticket or one-of-a-kind items from some of the most talented fine jewellery designers all around the world, some of whom you’ve never heard of. In a nutshell, this is a global fine jewellery boutique at your fingertips!

MATCHESFASHION

MATCHESFASHION.COM is GEMOLOGUE’S favourite online store for fine designer jewellery. All fashionistas know that MATCHESFASHION.COM is the go-to destination for contemporary luxury fashion, with an excellent curation of hot-off-the-runway looks and currently most-wanted accessories. I also love the site’s clean layout and their impeccable customer service!

NET-A-PORTER

Net-A-Porter.com is my jewellery paradise as it offers even high jewellery, meaning one off pieces with exceptional craftsmanship and the best stones the world has to offer. We are talking £50,000-£100,000 in one click! The wide selection of their contemporary jewellery designs and carefully curated jewellery designers makes the jewellery discovery and browsing a pleasure from the comfort of your phone.

WOLF & BADGER

Much beloved by many London fashionistas, Wolf & Badger has several beautiful stores in the city, including Notting Hill and Mayfair. Wolf & Badger stocks an array of eclectic and quirky jewellery, so this online store is worth looking at if you are after something different and affordable; here, you will not find your standard commercial selection of pieces, but something infinitely more interesting.

ANNOUSHKA

Annoushka is a classic, quintessentially British place to shop for fine and contemporary jewellery. Annoushka designers herself, as well as carrying an interesting curation of handpicked fine jewellery designers who otherwise tend to be available only offline like Ilgiz Fazulzyanov in Moscow and Lydia Courteille in Paris. You can read GEMOLOGUE feature about Ilgiz Fazulzyanov and Lydia Courteille.

I think that  Annoushka is the perfect place for a man find a beautiful and affordable gift for his wife, mother or sister. Many pieces can be personalised making them more special, and all jewellery comes in gorgeous packaging making such a gift even more special.

LIBERTY LONDON

Liberty London is my favourite London’s department store – and one of England’s oldest – and their online store is the continuation of their vibrant mix of designer, fine and vintage jewellery. Have a browse online at what they have to offer, and then make your way to Soho’s most beautiful store.

Liberty stocks our one of our all-time favourite queen of vintage, Annina Vogel, and the widely popular costume jewellery brand Dannijo!

ETSY

The heart and soul of Etsy is our global community: the creative entrepreneurs who use Etsy to sell what they make. If you are after something special Easy is the online market for you.

Where do usually shop for jewellery? Leave me a message in the comments below!

I am extremely happy to announce that my new jewelry book – GEMOLOGUE: Street Jewellery Styles & Styling Tips – is now on Amazon. I’m so excited. It’s the first book of its kind solely dedicated to jewellery.

GET THE LOOK: AS SEEN IN VOGUE BRAZIL

I am sure you haven’t forgotten my excitement about the making of Silvia Furmanovich jewellery campaign for the new Botanica collection in Sao Paulo. I was not only modelling but also art directing the shoot. I had an opportunity to create several striking jewellery looks from the stunning jewels of Silvia Furmanovich and I’m happy to say it was a hit!

This green Amazonia look is one of my favourite recent looks! You have probably noticed I have my hair loose all the time. Even though I never put my hair up, I absolutely loved this particular hairstyle. Inspired by divine Brazilian nature I felt it was in tune with 3 dimensional forms of Silvia Furmanovich earrings from the Botanica collection.

Here I am wearing one of the best Brazilian designer brand Paula Raia in incredible green hues – in line with Brazilian DNA of the shoot. The open back top has a beautiful and delicate design in light green colour, which goes perfectly with the skirts’s darker shade of green.

If I was asked what was my favourite design from Botanica SF, I would have a hard time answering. What I can say for sure is that I didn’t want to take off these 18k gold orchid earrings encrusted with diamonds and a rubellite in the center! Light as feather and carefully crafted with signature Silvia Furmanovich marquetry technique, they add a tropical touch to any look.

Nothing is what it seems on social media. My last outfit photo I posted in this dress.. I got a flood of DMs and comments on “how do you look this good a week after giving birth?”. The fact is I don’t. I literally threw on this dress (that I’ve been waiting to wear after my pregnancy) for a photo and realized that it still doesn’t zip up. I still can’t wear pants… in fact I barely fit into my maternity jeans. Chloe keeps asking me if I’m pregnant again because of my belly. 99.9% of the time I’m in a nursing bra and a robe at home (with nursing pads sticking out all over the place.. like in this photo).And I’m totally ok with that… all good things take time and I’ve learned to love my postpartum body. 💪🏻 #1weekpostpartum

GEM TALK WITH KENZA EYZAGUIRRE, LUXURY PR & EVENTS MANAGER

The series of interviews with women and men who have personalities, story to tell and their own GEM style. They make it happen for themselves all over the world and follow GEMOLOGUE by Liza Urla.

Join me while I interview Kenza at the new Nobu Hotel Marbella, which is practically her home away from home. Kenza is a modern woman with Haiti-American upbringing, European heart and Parisian flair. She is a beautiful person with a kind soul and a passion for art. Her jewellery box is eclectic: from hand-made treasures from all over the world to one-of-a-kind pieces inherited from her family. Her impressive career journey from Chanel to Boucheron has made her into the woman she wants to be, and with Pippa Small for an aunt she is destined for greatness! But what really makes her a unique personality is her all-consuming kindness. Meet Kenza Carlson Eyzaguirre!

Name: Kenza Carlson Eyzaguirre
Alma Mater: American University of Paris
Occupation: PR & Event
Hometown: Marbella, Spain

LOCATION AT TIME OF INTERVIEW: Nobu Hotel Marbella. As for the restaurants in Marbella I love going to Serafina, beach clubs Chiringuito Ibiza and Marbella, MC Beach Marbella Club. My favourite shops are A concept, Lagoon, Ekseption Puerto Banus.

IN THE BEGINNING: I grew up surrounded by artists and designers in my family and therefore my passion for art and history began as a child. As well as my interest in jewellery, as my mother would design and create pieces at home and we have two well-known and admired gemologists in the family. In university in Paris I began studying art history, which was the ideal city to study it, as Paris itself is the best museum. From art history I went on to study marketing and international communications, which I thought would enable me to have a broad choice of career opportunities. My first internship was in Geneva at the UN and then I moved on to the luxury sector in Paris. From there I decided to take a break in Marbella my hometown for a few months and ended up staying. My friends from Paris, the Moretti brothers from the Moretti & Moretti gallery the biggest street art and pop art gallery in the world, decided to open in the Marbella Club Hotel. I was going to help them to take care of the gallery in Marbella, while they were in Paris, and I ended up staying with them and my unknown passion for street art began! I would like to eventually have my own concept gallery with rotating exhibitions of up-and-coming artists.

USA OR EUROPE: I prefer to live in Europe as it is so accessible to travel in between all the cities and I love the old world charm Europe has and history. The US is a fantastic place to visit and I love L.A. however, I prefer Europe to live. I grew up in Marbella always traveling back and forth with my mother to California until the age of 10 and then we moved to Tennessee were I studied in high school. At the age of 17 I moved back to Europe to study at American University of Paris.

PARIS: I lived in Paris for 17 years and after university went on to work for several luxury brands. Now I still go back three times a year during fashion week as the city is at its best during this time, the streets become a circus of colour and interesting characters! My favourite place is Hotel Costes, it has the best ambiance by far.  In winter I love the George V for tea, and the newly renovated Ritz. The rue Cler in the 7ème were I used to live is charming with the fresh fruit and vegetables stands and the best boulangeries, and Le Petit Cler a typical french bistro has the best cuisine! La salad nicoise and omlete au champinions and the fresh rhubarb and pear crumbles! The YSL museum foundation of Avenue Marceau is tiny, therefore more intimate with rotating exhibitions! St. Germain, of course, the Cafe Flor is a must and has one of my favourite tarte tatins! “Apple tart”. Assouline book shop just off of the Eglise de St. Germain is wonderful, I could spend hours there.

MARBELLA: I was born in Marbella, but left as a child to the States and then to Paris. However, I would always come to visit for the holidays. One has the best quality of life here, wonderful weather, it is safe not overcrowded and the proximity to the mountains and sea is ideal! My favorite places here: La Tienda restaurant in La Virginia, it was one of the first restaurants in Marbella. It has kept its old world charm and Andalusian feel in a beautiful setting. It is very romantic and picturesque! I love Serafina restaurant in Puente Romano, delicious cuisine and you are in the middle of all the action of the plaza of the hotel. Marbella Club in the summer with its patio parties is great fun! They host studio 54 and flower power parties with fantastic decorations and costumes. MC Beach is another favourite, I love the turquoise colours of the beach club, it is my favourite colour. Celicioso the gluten-free cafe for the juices is the best!

VEGANISM: My mother has been vegan her whole life so as a child when I lived with her in the States I was used to eating a plant-based diet. For me its the norm, when I moved back to Spain and then Paris I started eating fish again as seafood in the Mediterranean is essential and so healthy, I honestly think a pescaterian diet is the healthiest, however about two years ago I became more and more conscious of our planet, the environment and sustainability and I cut out all fish and dairy, anything coming from an animal even honey. It is a personal decision of mine and I feel wonderful. I tend to eat raw vegan, nothing processed and no artificial sugars. In winter it is a bit harder so I have plenty of pumpkin, cauliflower soups, sweet potatoes and steamed vegetables. I am constantly researching information about ocean conservation, anti-plastic campaigns and veganism. I am also collaborating with the environmental projects with seminars and hospitality events, which I hope to do more of as I do believe it is the future and want help make the world a better place!

BOUCHERON: I worked for Boucheron in Place Vendome in the PR and marketing department which was a most rewarding experience as Boucheron is the oldest Haute Joaillerie House in France!

CORTO MOLTEDO: At Corto Moltedo back then (the son of the founders of Bottega Veneta), it was a new exciting pop up brand located in Palais Royal with funky 80’s inspired clutches and accessories. I was involved in the marketing and press relations for shoots and events we hosted in-house at the Palais Royal boutique. We had a fantastic Christmas party with his newest models designed with sequence and green and red python Susan clutches. Corto, the designer, has such a charm and way with people/ clients that once you meet him you become enamoured with his brand, he represents cool funk, the latest contemporary trends inspired by the underground music and art scenes resulting in cutting edge designs on classic models.

SHOP CORTO MOLTEDO:

CHANEL: I worked briefly for Chanel and then the buying office Mint on Rue St. Honore. I took care of the U.S. market for Saks Fifth Avenue NY.  At Chanel I worked at several of their boutiques on a temporary contract in client guest relations. During my experience I was able to learn about the intricate details that go into each design and the marketing behind the presentation and packaging is all about an experience unique to Chanel, which is what the customer stays with. Chanel is very smart in targeting the sensory detail of memory and emotion, so when a customer walks into a Chanel he immediately enters the Chanel world: the scent, the presentation, the packaging, the camellia etc. They are meticulous to detail. What most impressed me about Chanel was my interaction with the Asian Market, the Chinese and Japanese would queue every morning in front of the boutiques with a list of pieces they would purchase. They had no limits and the shops would keep track of each client allowing them only to purchase a certain number. It reminded me of a Luxury version of McDonald’s fast shopping, one stop and go. At Mint, the buying office located on rue. St Honore, I learned a tremendous amount of how the buying process and collection selection is made for big department stores such as David Jones Australia, Hudson Bay Canada and Sacks Fifth Avenue US and Mexico. I was in charge of the US market meaning I would organize the buying agendas/ showroom visits, shows and entire fashion week agendas for the US buyers during the four fashion weeks of the year in Paris. We collaborated with Vanity Fair in a few events with upcoming brand presentations and I was lucky to meet upcoming designers, who were just beginning at the time and now have made it big (Haider Ackermann for example, who I am a big admirer of).

ALAIA: I remember my first visit to the Alaia showroom in the Marais, he held a small fashion show luncheon I was accompanying the buyers, I was able to see first hand the labor behind each dress. Alaia himself explained the process behind each creation, what inspired him and then the creativity process itself. One’s perception changes completely, he was indeed a genius!

SHOP ALAIA:

PIPPA SMALL: I love spending time in London helping at my cousin Pippa Small’s beautiful boutique in Notting Hill. Pippa is most admirable as she is first of all an anthropologist and philanthropist. Besides her talent as a jewellery designer she is a UN ambassador for the protection of endangered indigenous tribes among many other humanitarian works she is a part of. Most recently she began a collaboration with Turquoise Mountain, the woman’s foundation in Afghanistan were she designed a collection with the local women, which she has managed to promote and sell wonderfully, all of which brings attention and aid to these most needy area of the world. Pippa’s designs are organic and pay reference to several different cultures, which she then is able to support with proceeds from her sales and collaborations with local craftsmanship etc. I am proud of her continuous devotion to supporting and promoting the talent of those areas of the world that are most in need of help.

SHOP PIPPA SMALL JEWELLERY:

PR: From the gallery project I started assisting the hotel group Puente Romano and Marbella Club with Event Organization, fashion shows, art exhibitions and PR and my work with the group grew to my current role. The group has since partnered with Nobu with two new Nobu Hotels: one in Ibiza, Nobu Ibiza Bay, and a Nobu Boutique Hotel within the Puente Romano resort. I helped launch as well the first private members club of Marbella, called the Owners Club, also located within the Puente Romano resort. I continue to do events and PR for exterior companies.

POWER COMES FROM: From positive people around me, who I gain inspiration from.

ART: I was in Art Basel Miami last year and will return this year with several more new pieces and artists I want to meet! I do like the classics such as Cezanne and then pop art by Andy Warhol. My favourite is the black cat stencil work by Hijak and Konny Steding’s Bridget Bardot, and bright colourful oil on canvas abstract paintings by my mother’s cousin.

GEM STYLE: My jewellery style is a mixture really, I love ethnic Jewellery from Mexico, Turkey and Bali, where I have acquired several pieces during my travels. I love the intricate craftsmanship. I do like bold pieces, but generally for my personal use I like fine refined pieces, mostly gold. Most of my jewellery comes from my mother, they are my favourite pieces! Gold and turquoise and aquamarine. And also the evil eye pendants are my top favourite pieces along with the Kenyan elephant hair bracelets my mother had copied in gold for my father, which I have inherited.

TOPSHOP OR CHANEL: I generally prefer Topshop type brands for everyday wear paired with refined accessories, such as a Chanel purse, Isabel Marant boots and Anine Bing Tortoise sunglasses! Anine Bing and Isabel Marant with Gucci, Haider Ackermann, Ralph Lauren and YSL! My favorite pieces are vintage handed me down from my mother, aunt and godmother.

FIRST JEWELLERY: My first piece of jewelry were gold Cartier stud earrings, when I was two months old. In Spain, where I was born, baby girls have their ears pierced being a few months old. Jewellery design is a passion of mine and I have made several pieces for my own wear and friends and I used to sell locally in a friend’s boutique. The stones indeed must stand out to me, pearls, crystals, semi precious stones, turquoise, etc..

MY EVERYDAY JEWELLERY: My mother’s gold flower ring with a white diamond is my favourite, I never take it off. She had it designed in Tehran, Iran when she was living there as a teenager. My Kenyan inspired elephant hair bracelet in gold designed by mother for my father, I never take off either. My grandmother’s turquoise ring we had redone and mounted in gold in Mexico and my cousin Pippas’s simple gold bangles with a turquoise stone are my second skin!

PERFECT ENGAGEMENT RING: Buccellati’s engagement rings, they are feminine and delicate. And one designed by myself, yet to be decided how.

ROLEX OR CARTIER: Cartier is my favorite for watches, I bought my first tank Cartier in Place Vendome after I received a bonus from my first fashion week work at the buying office. They are classic, always elegant and I always add colourful watch bands I change: red, green and turquoise!

MEN JEWELLERY: Watches such as Omega, Blancpain, Audemars Piguet, Patek, Rolex and in Spain the men wear colourful leather or string bracelets and the silver Kenyan elephant bracelets.

JEWELLERY AS AN INVESTMENT: Mostly investing in gold, primarily more so than stones.

FASHION JEWELLERY: I don’t really wear fashion jewelry.

PERFECT GETAWAY: Kenya. I went to Nairobi and Masai Mara to visit charity projects we help sponsor and it was really a life changing experience. The beauty of the Kenyan people, their strength and creativity was inspiring. Also the food was exquisite, unexpected for a vegan like me! They had the best fresh fruit and vegetables! My favourite places in the world: Ibiza, Paris, Los Angeles, Mexico and still many more places I have to travel to and explore!

A PARTY TO REMEMBER: The Enchanted forest Party in Ibiza this summer at a private villa in the middle of the island. It was incredible, the Ettore estate was transformed into a fairytale! With over 1,000 guests everyone had the most elaborate costumes, a laser light show in the trees, a bohemian artisan market was set up with food stands and amazing DJ’s!

MY WEAPON OF CHOICE: Kindness.

WILD WISH: To go to the Cannes film festival, the Met Gala, amfAR and burning man all next year.

MIKE JOSEPH DIAMOND NECKLACE REVIEW, COUTURE DESIGN AWARDS 2018

Can’t tell you how exciting it is to walk into a show like COUTURE Las Vegas, knowing you’re going to be trying on some of the most bold and daring jewellery you can find. All that diamond sparkle and glittering gold gives me a rush of adrenaline and my heart starts to thump-thump against my chest so loud everyone can hear it!

Well, today my happy jewellery lovers, I’ve found something sexy and fascinating to show you: a cool and sophisticated diamond necklace designed by Armenian jewellery Designer Mike Saatji of Mike Joseph Jewellery. Winner of the Couture Design Award for Best in Diamonds Above $20,000, you won’t believe the craftsmanship that went into this fascinating design.

Meticulously crafted from gold and diamonds by 14 craftsmen in the Mike Joseph Jewellery Bangkok workshop, this statement necklace took six months to finish. It is a work of precision and harmony, with 2367 diamonds (39.59 carats) balanced precisely with 18k gold chains. My favourite part is that it doubles as a choker. Simply remove the tail and you have another piece of jewellery you can wear with a variety of outfits and different occasions.

I love the simplicity of this design, yet it is a complex jigsaw puzzle of individual numbered pieces attached separately together. The effect creates a statement necklace with fluidity that gracefully moves and sparkles with your every movement.

The inspiration for this piece came to Mike Saatji one evening when he was enjoying a glass of wine out on a restaurant patio at sunset in Paris. He saw a lady wearing a beautiful vintage Hermès scarf and he loved the fall and folds of the piece. He sketched a rough design on a napkin and later met with his technical team to discuss how they could achieve such a daring necklace without compromising on comfort and wearability. The result is this bold, award-winning necklace I’m wearing now. Pure perfection.

Are you surprised, looking at the photos, how much work goes into a piece of jewellery like this? Let me know in the comment below.

GET THE LOOK FROM THE MALDIVES: GREEN HUES IN SEVAN BICAKCI RINGS

As you might have seen my wedding ceremony took place in the Maldives earlier this year. I recently went back to this dreamy destination for the first time since that wonderful trip.  This time I came to my beloved Maldives to shoot a jewellery campaign for a Gem Kreatives‘ client.

I had just a few minutes to capture my Maldives gold jewelry look in the beautiful surroundings of the St. Regis Maldives Vommuli. My green hued outfit from the London-based Ukrainian knitwear designer Kukhareva blended in perfectly with the St. Regis Maldives design. You already know my love for craftsmanship, so this is why I like Kuchareva’s pieces: you can tell how much effort she puts into fabric creation in her London workshop.

You might have noticed that I’m obsessed with green at the moment. One of my favourite Sevan Bicakci rings with intaglio carved in the stone and painted inside to give this ring a light green colour was just meant to be worn in Maldives. This is one of Sevan Bicacki‘s sculptural rings, and it features three doves as a symbol of hope inspired by the Noah and the Ark story.

I completed my jungle look with H Stern gold ring crafted with diamonds and noble gold, unique to H Stern jewellery collection. This Genesis H.Stern Ring looks much softer against the skin due to the champagne colour of its diamonds.

GEMOLOGUE BOOK SIGNING, SOTHEBY’S: KEEPING THE MAGIC OF JEWELLERY ALIVE

Delighted so many of you could make it to my book singing and talk with the Head of Sotheby’s jewellery department. I was worried people wouldn’t be able to make it on a Friday afternoon, so I’m really grateful we had a full room. Many of you who couldn’t make it in person tuned into my Instagram Live. So a big thank you to everyone for finding time to join me. I enjoyed giving this talk; the questions you raised during the Q&A touched upon so many interesting topics with regards to the world of jewellery, it was a joy.

If you want to catch my next jewellery talk and future book signing, subscribe to my newsletter below.

I love travelling to places where jewellery is as much a part of the conversation as politics. But quite often I encounter communities where the people are not crazy about jewellery, I think, because they’re not aware of its extraordinary history and powerful symbolism. Perhaps it’s because I’m a Taurus that I have such a strong and emotional bond to beautiful works of art. I am drawn to the beauty of an object and I find great comfort in its magnificence.

I’ve always dreamed of owning precious objects of sculptural beauty, not as a show of extravagance but to be close to something of great mastery. As I’m typing this blog now sitting on the train from Paris, the sun’s rays from the window hit my diamond rings and beautiful sparkles dance and play all around me. It’s so magical. It’s the way jewellery catches the light that captivates me and I love watching how other people’s jewellery sparkles with flashes of different colours. Were not pearl earrings and diamond tiaras meant to be worn in candlelight to illuminate the face and create allure?

It’s easy to compare jewellery to art, but the art world has its own niche and code of conduct. Jewellery takes you into another circle of talented individuals, each as artistic as the next. It defines you in a society where jewellery has become democratized and more of a statement of style than status. No need to seal a letter with your signet ring; we use password protected emails now. No need for physical possessions when you’re away from home travelling the world, experiencing different cultures, tasting exotic foods and engaging in inspiring activities. No need to keep jewellery when you can buy synthetic diamonds with no lasting value. Even I wonder whether my children will want my jewellery as heirlooms. Our notion of jewellery is getting destroyed. So my goal is to keep that dream alive by featuring such amazing jewellery designers and experts the world has to offer. It’s a beautiful sparkly world and I’m so proud to be a part of it and share it with you.

I am very sentimental about my jewellery – the gifts I’ve received from loved ones, my engagement ring, my anniversary ring, my first pair of Tahitian pearl earrings that I bought for myself from Goldman Sachs with my first pay cheque, to me jewellery captures the memory of a special occasion much like a photo. Every time I wear these sentimental items, I’m transported back in time to a memory I’ll treasure forever. It’s magical!

I want to inspire others to feel the same way I do about jewellery. The moment I began GEMOLOGUE, it became obvious to me just how many women have no interest in jewellery – about 7 out of 10, I’d say. So my objective became to attract more people into the jewellery world by educating them in a fun, approachable way, and showcasing different styles of jewellery like the ones you can find in my new book. I want to show people that jewellery is not only a shiny possession but something of great historical and cultural value, dating back centuries. I hope my book will inspire everyone to be a jewellery lover and look at jewellery in a different light.

Let’s bring jewellery back into the candlelight. Tell all your friends about the GEMOLOGUE jewellery book and let’s keep the magic of jewellery alive!

Would love to hear why you’re interested in jewellery and what it means to you. Please leave me a comment below.
