“Some of my accessory staples are these multicolored rings. I wear them stacked for any and every occasion, almost as if they were a hefty dose of positive vibes.”
“I’ve been fascinated by and immersed in the imaginary world since my childhood – and what would symbolize that better than unicorns? One of my other passions is horseback riding, which has also inspired me to design and wear these special little creatures.”
“I’m not usually the biggest fan of vintage, but this necklace was a gift from my grandmother to my mother and now belongs to me, so I treasure it dearly.”
“White pearls exude an air of timelessness and, to me, represent eternal peace in a way.”
“We all know that time is money, and investing in a quality timepiece helps me know the ‘right time’ to take a step into my future. These two watches by Cartier and Rolex are my favorite ones. I wear them on rotation to match my outfit of the day.”
“These zipper bracelets feature diamonds and gemstones and are some of my favorite creations.”
“I’m all about symbolism in my designs. To me, snakes symbolize female strength and empowerment.”
“I’m so in love with this L’Or candy ring right now! I also designed the diamond ring with my initials because I love personalized pieces. Blue sapphires symbolize hope, and I have a strong emotional connection to these pear-shaped sapphire earrings.”
“Wearing these statement diamond-and-emerald drop earrings always gives me a boost of confidence. They personify health and wealth.”
“A simple but chic diamond necklace for a casual day out.”
“These rings are essential to my look. I always like to add a personalized touch, such as this rose-gold ‘L’ ring with diamonds. I also highly value gifts that are personalized in any way.”
