Life is all about stories. Perhaps passing an heirloom piece of furniture on to a young relative along with all the family tales woven into its being. Maybe bestowing a valueless yet irreplaceable vintage coat upon a grateful young relation with the strict instruction that “Dry Clean Only” does not mean “Shove in the wash with everything else”
The generations are tied together by stories. Designers of lifestyles understand this inherently, which is why the best furniture, houses, cars, and of course jewellery designs are created to last, to be passed on, to be utilised and treasured by more than one careful owner.
When it comes to jewellery, choosing pieces representative of the time is crucial to investing in a piece. The most lavish newly made art-deco inspired piece is still only in the style of art deco, a classic but finished movement. No freshness is insinuated. No matter the worth of the piece, at its heart it is a reproduction.
The frittering away of trends can make it incredibly difficult to identify leaders, longstanding innovators and –at a very base level – good investments. Of the notable contemporary jewellery designers and brands – Thomas Sabo, Stephen Webster and Shaun Leane among them – Monica Vinader is arguably one of the most true-to-roots originals currently designing.
Borne from a life travelling, gathering, exploring, discovering and experimenting from her native Spain, extensively through South America and finally to her home and studio in Norfolk, England. Monica Vinader jewellery is that perfect mix of cultural eclectism, historical roots and ultra-modern flare.
Monica Vinader bracelets mark some of her most popular design stables. The silk and precious metal designs are, at their heart, wearable and free-spirited. Reminiscent of Monica’s own travels around the globe, her designs inspire the wearer to create their own stories, have their own adventures, and revel in the combined luxury and utility of her designs.
