Hot on the Highstreet Week 262

I love personalised jewellery, it always feels more special. The Louis Vuitton Me & Me necklace comes in every letter variety from A to Z. The alphabet pendant is engraved with the discreet LV hallmark. The letters are also enriched with screws reminiscent of iconic Louis Vuitton trunks. It is an ideal, easy-to-match gift.

These gold necklaces are delicate but bold. A modern version of the famous ‘Sex in the City’ gold name necklaces. The pendants (including the chain) are priced at £270 each. They are made from gold-finished brass metal with LV engravings on the letter and on the clasp of the chain. If I could afford it, I’d love to spell out my whole name in LV letters!

Annoushka started designing jewellery when she couldn’t find what she was looking for. A woman after my own heart she believes in jewellery that can be worn everyday rather than those too precious pieces locked away to preserve their glory. Jewellery should be loved and enjoyed… A notion all too clear in the playful but delicate jewellery designed by Annoushka. The wondrous designs adorn some of the top A-list celebrities, an indication of just how desirable these pieces are.

Alongside her seasonal ranges Annoushka has just launched a very unique bespoke service for customers in need of a one off piece. Let her help you create the jewellery of your dreams… Perfect for capturing and immortalising an important moment.

The mythology charms are among the most enchanting in Annoushka’s collection. She says they were”Inspired by a book of Russian fairy tales my mother read to me as a child, every amulet holds a story.” Ideal for wearing in a cluster or left to shine alone they are beautiful little tokens of affection or special memories.

The alphabet pendants are a small sparkling treasure you will keep forever.  18ct yellow gold rim surrounds a letter of your choice ornamented with tiny clear diamonds. The pendant initially reminded me of the showbiz lightbulb illuminated letters. My ‘M’ glistens subtly on my neck, and though it is a new addition to my favourite jewellery it has already become an everyday essential.
