I’ve just come back from Athens, inspired by the Ancient Greek jewellery I saw in the Benaki Museum and am devastated to have got to the Lalounis Museum on a day when it was shut! Lalounis is a famous Greek designer who based his jewellery on designs just such as these.

You can see an example of his earrings in my second hand earrings section

I’ll be going back! The Acropolis is the largest of many magnificent temples in Athens, but there are many others for fans of the Ancient Greek myths and legends.

If you’d like any pieces based on those above, contact me at michele@personaljewellerylondon.co.uk or call  07809 502 714!

Have you heard of cornelians? This cornelian necklace (left) with opaque flat ovals is completely different from the cornelian necklace (right)  where the hollow tubes have a translucent quality.

Do You Like Pendant Necklaces?

Necklaces as Pendants are uniquely different from what is generally seen as a necklace. The centre piece or pendant usually stands out as something special and separate from the chain. In the following pieces, new, antique and second hand, each pendant is a novel feature of the piece.

Remember there is only one of most of my pieces!

This silver silver spoon pendant is made from a real silver spoon, and has been ingeniously bent into a stunning piece of art.

HALLMARKED SILVER SPOON PENDANT £130

This new acrylic pendant piece, (below left) is hand painted and hangs simply from a cord. The subtle lilacs mixed with gold, silver and black make it easy to wear with black or pastel colours.

Or if you like amber, this fluted butter amber and silver pendant is a beautiful piece on a dark skin or a grey or black top.

SILVER FITTINGS AND CHAIN £120

 

 

 

 

 

If you’re looking for an old piece,  this engraved locket opens traditionally with space both sides for photos of your loved ones.

Lapis Lazuli Jewellery

 Handmade Designs Chosen For You!

I had this 18ct white gold ring made to an elegant but solid  design, to bring out the best features of this particular stone. See the natural gold flecks inside this high quality stone.

18CT WHITE GOLD LAPIS RING £950

I had this oval pendant made to match the ring as the stones come from the same rock and they make an elegant set.

18CT WHITE GOLD LAPIS PENDANT £1,400

NECKLACE, BRACELET, EARRINGS SET £850

A True Story About a Diamond Ring!

How Not to Get Engaged!

He went to a well known jewellery store to buy his dream diamond engagement ring. He found the perfect solitaire and asked all about the colour and size of the diamond. He bought the best one he could afford set in a platinum setting so that she knew he hadn’t skimped on price. He thought she’d like this:

Centre diamond 1.05ct with 0.30ct surrounding diamonds. £12,650

He booked the restaurant for a candlelit dinner and presented her with the ring. Her face turned pale and then flushed with anger. ” I can’t wear this!” she said, “Why don’t you know what I like? You know nothing about my style!”

He felt dejected and stupid. He wished he’d consulted someone before he’d spent all that money. He didn’t know what to do. She came to me and said, “This is what I want! Can you make this?”

Commission only

Of course I said yes because at:

www.personaljewellerylondon.co.uk you can have whatever you want!

I had to explain that she’d need more diamonds and that it would cost more than the original ring.

“I don’t care!” she said, “I can’t wear that for the rest of my life!”

Eight years later they got married!

I think you can guess the moral to this tale!
