Go pastel and pretty for spring with Monica Vinader

If you haven't been living under a rock, you'd have heard that luxe British jewellery brand Monica Vinader has set up shop in Ion Orchard. The favourite of celebs and royalty (think Emma Watson and her royal highness Kate Middleton), the label is now launching new collections to expand their repertoire.

Since the opening, fans of this cult brand have been clamouring for more of their best-selling friendship bracelets and Monica Vinader doesn't disappoint. Launching a series of fresh colours for their Fiji friendship bands, these sorbet-shaded lovelies are just the thing for spring. Each colour corresponds with a special meaning, making them perfect gifting ideas for a special someone or yourself this Valentine's Day. 


Want your jewellery to evoke an organic feel? Then you'll love the new styles in another iconic collection of Monica Vinader's — the Riva. Inspired by the Italian Riviera, unique triple band rings and wrap-around earrings echo a natural wave form reminiscent of the sea's ebb and flow. Crafted in three silhouettes — Kite, Wave and Circle, these stunning pieces can be elegantly layered and effortlessly paired.

Complement the marine vibe of the Riva series with the Siren collection featuring sea-worn gems of amazonite, blue lace agate and orange carnelian. Like rough hewn precious stones harvested from the deep blue, the hammered and rippled textures are stacking and layering versatility at its finest. Pair them with your favourite pieces from prior Siren collections for a bold, colourful look that reflects an ocean paradise.

If by now you're likely thinking Monica Vinader will be the ideal gift for your other half this coming Valentine's Day, you'll be stoked as the eponymous label has also launched a men's collection for SS16. Named the Alta collection, masculine pieces featuring bespoke cut gemstones in hammered rings, cuffs and corded bracelets make for the perfect expression of love. Every piece in the collection is customisable with the brand's complimentary engraving service for a personal touch — making your gift a unique irreplaceable token.

Not just exclusively for sweethearts, those celebrating lovers' day with their best mates will delight in a new range of the highly sought after letters: The Diamond Alphabets. Fashioned in a free flowing script taken from Monica Vinader's very own handwriting, these delicate pieces are dressed in rose gold vermeil to look like an affectionate jewelled memo that expresses your sentiments. These deep-set letters can be seamlessly layered across all other Monica Vinader collections so as to craft a truly personalised creation.

Monica Vinader is located at #B1-K7, Ion Orchard.
