Jewelry is something I rarely spend money on and rarely buy for other people. I believe this is because jewelry is such a personal thing and if you’re like me, if you find a piece of jewelry that you love, you rarely ever take it off (see my post on the rings I never take off). This means I pick the pieces that I do wear very thoughtfully and while I believe this makes the pieces that I do wear special, it also limits me from experimenting with jewelry that I might end up loving. So when I was watching an In The Frow vlog where Victoria mentions the (gorgeous) jewelry she’s wearing, I wanted to try to push my jewelry boundaries and see what else was out there.

The collection is an “embodiment of European and Asian aesthetics and spirit,” and is full of gorgeous, one-of-a-kind designs. Here are some of my top picks from the brand:
