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.
This is lust.
Jewellery is a plus, a luxury, an adornment. If you wear boring jewellery, it can actually detract from the rest of your outfit as the sparkles are often what people remember.
A well designed piece will hold your interest, then as you look for longer, the thought of actually wearing it should bring a smile to your face or have you picking out outfits.
This is love.
Your taste, is your taste. Easy as that! We're all different and as long as what excites you could be the simple lines of the Halo Necklace, whereas your best friend loves the Voodoo rings - there's no right or wrong if you feel good in it.
We want you to love a piece and by picking something that suits your style or taste – not necessarily what someone says is in fashion for today – will ensure you have a new favourite.
Valuing your appearance to a standard that you desire, is valuing yourself. Some women are happy with simplicity, others take pride in a lot of detail behind how they look. Beautiful jewellery can be wrapped up in thoughts, stories and sentiment. Wearing a piece with pride is what we aspire to for any piece you own; and if we can help you in any way, like all good artists, we will.
For example, if you find a Lee Renee piece you love but want something a bit more special, ask Lee if she can change the material (rose gold or platinum anyone?) or add gemstones and diamonds to your bespoke jewellery - so your jewellery can be as unique as you are.
Go forth and treat yourself this weekend! You’re wonderful and you deserve it ❤
