The Signature Bracelet
Monica Vinader bridges the gap between Tiffany and Accessorise with her affordable bohemian luxe pieces.
How excited are we at Muddy Norfolk to learn that jewellery designer to the stars – Monica Vinader has her design headquarters right here in Norfolk, nestled in the grounds of the very beautiful Holkham Hall Estate.
It all began with the simple friendship bracelet and now her affordable bohemian luxe pieces (prices range between £40 and £3750) are the go to for A-listers and royalty alike. The Duchess of Cambridge, Rita Ora, Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Winslet are some of her biggest fans!
We have fallen head over heels for her ‘Signature bracelet’ (from £225) which can be ordered in three widths, Stirling Silver, Rose Gold Vermeil and Gold Vermeil and for a bit of glamour you can add some diamonds! You can also have the bracelet engraved with a personal message and I can’t help but think – surely this is the perfect new job gift? (ahem – look at my first Gotta Have It feature darling!)
The jewellery is both bold and feminine, using Vermeil rather than gold, and mostly semiprecious rather than precious stones. So ultimately you’re getting a luxury jewellery brand at affordable prices, hoorah! This rose-gold-plated cocktail ring with an amazonite green stone is a statement piece but not statement-y enough to scare anyone off at £105.
Little known local fact – Monica is also an Interior Designer and when she moved back to Norfolk she was employed to redesign the Holkham Hall Café. Well worth a visit by the way, lots of scrummy locally sourced goodies to stock up on before you venture down to the beach.
