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!

Phoebe Coleman‘s jewellery is instantly recognisable for her signature style. The collections incorporate sparkling diamond cut gold motifs, iconography and symbolic charms, delicate and feminine pieces adorned with precious stones. Phoebe’s mission is to create beautiful, timeless jewellery with texture and attention to detail in simplistic forms, that surround an inspirational narrative and evoke emotions in the wearer. The jewellery is elegant and romantic, balanced with an underlying boldness and edge.

Phoebe Coleman grew up in Primrose Hill and studied fine art and jewellery design in California and London before starting her namesake label in 2010. A London girl at heart, Phoebe champions British craftsmanship: all jewellery is handmade by skilled artisans in her Shoreditch studio using 18 ct yellow and rose gold vermeil, sterling silver and quality precious stones including Akoya pearls, sapphires, rubies and diamonds.

The jewellery is regularly worn by fans of the brand including Alexa Chung, Poppy Delevingne, Ellie Goulding, Rita Ora and Jordann Dunn to name but a few. Editorials styled using the pieces regularly feature in the best fashion publications in the world, notably British and Italian Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Marie Claire and Grazia.

Last year Phoebe was nominated for Designer of the Year by the UK Jewellery Awards which will take place in London in June 2015.

“Katie Hillier’s quirky jewellery, finely crafted accessories, and coveted handbags regularly adorn the runways for some of fashion’s most respected and influential designers and luxury houses. Consultant to Victoria Beckham, Joseph and Asprey and, most recently, appointed Creative Director of Marc By Marc Jacobs, her strong design aesthetic has been dubbed, ‘Luxury with a wink’.

HILLIER, Katie’s singular jewellery and hair accessories brand, sees this expressed in its quintessential form. Continuing Katie’s unmistakable style, which combines excellence in craftsmanship with a generous amount of cheeky spirit, HILLIER launched with a fine jewellery collection of unique 18-carat animal pendant paperclips and luxury hair accessories shaped into darling, playful woodland creatures. Within a short space of time these British Treasures were spotted adorning celebrities such as Victoria Beckham and Alexa Chung and appearing in the glossy pages of Katie’s favourite magazines and newspapers.”

The jewellery is playful and pretty, made of the highest quality materials. My favourite pieces are the ‘doodle-like’ animal necklaces. This unique collection of animal pendant paperclips are 18-carat gold wire twists shaped into cheeky woodland creatures. The signature Hillier Bunny has established itself as a brand icon and here Bunny is joined by a set of quintessentially British friends; Squirrel, Bambi, Snail and Bumble Bee are all hand-crafted artisanal pieces, each set with a diamond eye available in a rainbow of colours. Continuing on with my alphabet obsession, I have to also mention the fab alphabet paperclip necklaces, the perfect personalised present for someone special.

Those who favour simpler, classic jewellery will love the dainty ‘Pretty rings’ available in 18ct Gold with colour diamonds accenting the delicate ring.

The Hillier range is great for all ages, a touch of luxury for a young girl, or a sparkle of playful youth for the older customer.
