My poor husband. Back in October 2011, just four weeks after our blind date, my 36th birthday popped up and my new man was tasked with buying me a birthday present. Would he get it right after just a few weeks of dating? I’m not one for acts of gushing over-eagerness, yet because I was really into him I’ll admit I would have been upset if he’d chosen something that he might have bought for any old mate.
As it happens my handsome new boyfriend got it just right. He bought me the Monica Vinader Fiji Chain Braceletwhich I adored, and still very much treasure to this day.
My obsession with Monica Vinader jewellery was born and the soon-to-be Mr. STG subsequently bought me the most beautiful engraved Ava Button Necklace for Valentine’s Day 2012 and so it goes on…
I’ve yet to mention Monica Vinader on the blog, but with the gift-giving (and receiving!) holiday season in full swing, it’s time to inspire you with my current hot picks. And it’s not just my husband and I with fabulous taste (I jest), The Duchess of Cambridge, Emma Watson, Cheryl Fernandez Versini and Cara Delevingne are all super fans of Monica’s too.
Don’t forget that many of Monica’s pieces can be personalised with custom engraving so they also make the most perfect wedding day mementoes.
