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.

Perfect Sunday Afternoon

It’s a gorgeous day in Vancouver today.  I spent a lovely afternoon with hubby at the Granville Island market, and checked out the new graduate student exhibit at Emily Carr University of Art and Design.

Sunshine, ice cream, flowers, and art = perfect afternoon!

Unconventional Bohemian Approach

With Coachella, beach vacay, road trips, and summer just around the corner, we are lusting for anything that’s boho-glam.

Our Livia necklace draws inspiration from the free spirited colorful Gyspet (“Gypsy + Jet set”) lifestyle – “an unconventional bohemian approach to life” . An eclectic mix of semi-precious stones, beads, and vintage charms offers many wearable options.

Check out this insta-collage of  Livia II necklace.   Can you count how many ways we styled it?  It’s one necklace, but lots of possibilities.  

rule #1: Don’t follow the rules – Make it your own!


 Livia II necklace – turquoise, corals, raw ruby, and vintage charms.  Handmade in Vancouver, Canada

Friday Timbits: from polka dot to anklet

Sura bracelet with a polka dot shirt| new office mini willow tree | Getting orders ready for shipment | Livia III necklace worn as an anklet

Do you wear anklet?  

We think it’s really cute way to adorn your ankle and show off the shoes.  Especially with the warm weather coming, wear some colorful fun anklet with that cute summer dress and sandals.

I wore the Livia III necklace as an anklet today.  Love how the moonstones, corals and black onyx mix together with silver chains.  and of course, the little black turquoise skull is the coolest.   Happy Friday!! xo.
