Jewelry Makeover – London Edition

If you ask me what the “must-have” in life is, I’d say “travel”.  Recently, a customer and a friend came back from London.  As her souvenirs, she brought back 4 vintage pieces from the Portobello Market – a rhinestone bracelet and 4 lovely little brooches.  She asked if I can custom design something for her with these lovely finds.

The first one was a no brainer because two of the pieces are just meant to be found together.  We simply paired up the bracelet with the gold rhinestone bow brooch as the size and the design match quite well together.  It was as simple as 1+1.

For the other two brooches, after going over a few ideas with her together.  We decided to make them into two separate necklaces.

Necklace #1:  Baroque Luxe

Necklace #2:  Victorian Chic

Hope you like we did for her.  If you would like to get a makeover for any of your special pieces, we’d love to hear from you.  Contact us at: customer@rocaille-design.com

Happy Friday!

Often Imitated, Never Duplicated.

Do you know what our one of a kind Eva bracelets have in common with you?

(scroll down for answer…)

 
The answer is: no two are the same.  
 
Express your individuality!
 

Happy Friday!

Style Inspiration: Lady Cameo

Love this picture of Giovanna Battaglia and her sweet cameo earrings.  She looks so classic and elegant, as always.

We have an unique cameo bracelet (Eva VI) that is Giovanna approve.  This cameo is specially lovely – it is not only beautifully carved, but also the lovely lady cameo wears a pearl necklace around her neck.  Amazing!

A Knight in Shining Armour

One of the best parts of my job at ROCAILLE is the discovery process – learning and understanding the history and meaning behind the vintage pieces we collect.  When designing a piece, we try to enhance the beauty of each find and tell a story.

This Zenobia necklace features an impressive vintage coat of arms crest, representing heritage, honor and strength.  It is truly a statement – a knight in shining armour!

The use of coat of arms became popular in Europe during the Middle Ages.  It was once used to identify the knights on the battlefield despite the armor that covered their identity.  Eventually it became a symbol of inherited social status.
