As with clothing, there are certain styles of jewellery that every woman should own from a pair of diamond studs to a chunky gold cuff. A new addition in recent years is the initial pendant which has been popularised thanks to designers ranging from Jennifer Meyer to Louis Vuitton.
A favourite to add to the list is British designer Monica Vinader’s Alphabet Collection, which launches this month. Inspired by modern typography, the look is definitely more “fashion” and less polished thanks to a range of letters in various fonts from art-deco to retro styles.
Available in silver and rose and yellow gold vermeil, each letter comes in different finishes from smooth to textured. There is als a choice of upper and lower case, as well as a selection of numbers.
What we love most about the collection is that every pendant is unique. Every design detail is different even from the way it hangs on the chain (straight or at an angle), making it the perfect layering piece for the summer.
