Word Up

Lee Preston

Silence is golden…let the new word necklaces do the talking.

Lee says, “I wanted to make something really positive and fun! We love that our pieces work with the trends but don’t want to take fashion too seriously”

Meet the Team Behind Lee Renee Jewellery

Lee Preston

My journey into jewellery started 8 years ago – I was working in Advertising, but knew I wanted to be more creative, focus on design and work with my hands, however I was a bit scared to take the leap into a completely new field. That fear was replaced with bloody-mindedness and determination when I lost two close family members in short succession. It made me realise how short life is, so I put myself on a new path of making and designing jewellery.

Birthstone: Emerald

Lee Preston

The month of May is lucky in getting the gorgeous green stone, Emerald as it’s birthstone. They are believed to improve wellbeing and are among the most respected gemstones in the industry – even a few imperfections don’t affect their value substantially.

Though we may now associate pinks and reds with romance, in ancient Rome green was the Goddess Venus’ colour – and so emerald green was said to signify love and beauty.

Inspiration: 3 Ways Jewellery Should Make You Feel

Lee Preston

Of course we are big fans of jewellery at Lee Renee – so much so that Lee's passion to create sparkly treasures meant at 30 she changed professions from advertising. Studying hard with master craftspeople, she apprenticed in her spare time at jewellers and ate, slept and dreamt jewellery... all before she launched her own brand to make sure that her pieces were as perfect as could be. Now that's commitment to adornment! So we understand that it can be a minefield of decisions to know exactly what to buy in the way of contemporary jewellery - whether it be for yourself or for a friend, so here is our advice for what we think a well-designed, beautifully crafted piece should be making you feel.

2016: Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend?

Lee Preston

Probably the most well-known of all the gemstones and the birthstone of April – the diamond! Shirley Bassey said that they were forever and Marilyn Monroe sang about how they are a girl’s best friend. (True?) Anyway, we think Shirley might be more on the money than she realised with the word ‘diamond’ coming from the Greek for ‘invincible’.

True to its name, the birthstone supposedly passes on strength to the wearer and this is magnified during the birthstone month of April. Also believed to provide healing powers to ensure full strength – if heated and taken to bed, it will draw out toxins. More reason to get the bling out?

She Says: Florence from Petalon Flowers

Lee Preston

Petalon Flowers are a new kind of florist.  A mile away from the wilting bunches you’ll see at a garage or supermarket, they have a rolling weekly choice of two bouquets – made with seasonal and  stunning selections.

As if that wasn’t lovely enough, they deliver all of the orders around London on a bicycle, and donate some of the profits to the Bee Collective, truly a fantastic enterprise, I've used them before and trust me whoever receives these lovely bouquets will be blown away by the quality and the artistry involved.

Inspiration: Gin, Gin, Gin

Lee Preston

With 1920s speakeasy style bars being all the rage in cities across the world, it makes sense that gin is bigger than ever.

Far from previous days when there were two brands on a supermarket shelf with bog standard diet tonic – a G&T can now be a work of art. With an expansive list of garnishes and tonic, for a newcomer, it can be a minefield.

So we drafted in the expertise of professional distiller John, from Locksley Distilling. He tells us that lots of people have joined the gin resurgence and there are so many more gins out there. With 16 years as a taster in the industry, we’re sure he can guide us to the perfect drink.

March Birthstone: Aquamarine

Lee Preston

As the name might suggest, this birthstone owes its name to water and the sea – likely inspired by the many different shades of blue that it can be found in. Inclusions within the crystal can make it look quite mystical, with streaks that resemble sea foam (or at least we think so), and it was believed to help sailors have a safe passage across the ocean.

For more practical uses for the modern woman – the stone is believed to have properties that attract friends, promote a happy marriage and attract more joy into your life. Hard to say no to?
