Ooh! I’m loving the new Gold Coast collection of jewellery by Meriko London. The pieces blend a bohemian style with a sophisticated twist and feature gold-plated sterling silver with natural hand-picked stones in Meriko’s unique ball design.
Most wearable are the four adjustable rings (including a pinky and midi ring) which are wonderfully chunky and bold (so of the moment). A matching bracelet, long two-stone necklace, a back necklace (love, love, love), an ear cuff and long earrings complete the line-up. The collection is inspired by travel and the freedom of youth – so, right up my street – and feature a range of semi precious gems and crystals covetable because of their natural empowering qualities.
I love the little details, such as the Meriko flower or the signature round stone designs, which are prominent in each piece. Designs are available in 18ct yellow or rose gold plated sterling silver and the two pinky/midi rings are also available in rhodium plated sterling silver. They are ideal for long, summer days and are wonderfully unique.
The stones available are light pink Rose Quartz, dark green Malachite, navy blue Lapis Lazuli, landscape Agate, black Agate and Turquoise. The jewellery line was started by Meri Hovsepyan in 2013, who comes from a family with a history of making fine jewellery. She founded Meriko London to offer high fashion jewellery at accessible prices but which had a timeless quality. The new collection was realised when she was travelling around southern Spain. Seeing the Mediterranean Sea every day, she began to think about translating its beauty into a new collection. She merged that with three ideals that every woman wants to feel forever: youth, serenity and freedom.
The Gold Coast collection is now available online at www.merikolondon.com and through stockists in London, Moscow and Marbella, Spain. The range starts at £85 for a two-stone ring.
