One of modern life’s little treasures is opening an email to find some truly exciting news. A little while ago I received a note from Merci Maman, my favourite jewellery brand, asking me to visit their London office to discuss becoming their brand ambassador. Yes me! No really! I couldn’t believe it either.
After a coffee and chatting about the new gemstone collection (which you simply must see if you love all things sparkly like me) we finished our meeting and I could barely contain my excitement. How was I supposed to keep this news secret before the launch party?!
If you’re a regular reader of Frey de Fleur then you will know that I feature my Merci Maman pieces in almost every outfit post I write. Merci Maman create pretty personalised jewellery so each item is hand engraved with elegance. The first piece I ever bought was a simple, yet stylish, gold necklace engraved with the names of my brother and sister.
I had just moved to university and was miles away from my siblings. My brother, Tom, has recently been diagnosed with cancer and I felt so distant from him whilst he was poorly. Having Emma and Tom’s name close to my heart every day meant a lot to me so it quickly became my good luck charm and I wore it everywhere.
If there’s someone special in your life that you want to always be near then I couldn’t recommend Merci Maman enough. There’s something about having personalised jewellery that makes it feel like so much more than just jewellery to you.
So… more about this new collection! The Gemstone Collection is full of feminine pieces made with semi-precious stones to add a luxurious touch to any outfit. I love layering my different necklaces and the gemstones really sparkle amongst all of the gold chains. I’ve styled them here with silky fabrics and lace details in dusty rose from River Island, perfect for that transition into autumn weather!
The lovely ladies at Merci Maman have even named a necklace after me – The Freya! The Mother of Pearl pendant is so versatile as it can be styled with anything (I haven’t taken mine off yet because I’m so in love with it) and I really like how dainty and delicate the chain is.The reverse of the pendant can have a secret personalisation so you could engrave your initials, the name of a loved one or a quote that’s special to you.
So which is your favourite piece from the Merci Maman collection? Comment below to let me know!
