I’ve recently developed a real penchant for French
It’s a shame these French brands are not easily found in Singapore.. and I always get a bit nervous purchasing jewellery online as I like to see it on me first. So I haven’t yet bought anything online.. though I may soon 😛
What I did get in shops here are from French brands Gag et Lou and 5octobre. Their stuff is all, surprise surprise, very delicate and oh so pretty!!! I’m fortunate that my kids don’t grab at my jewellery, so I don’t have to worry about that. Well.. at least Hunter doesn’t. Carter doesn’t yet, but who knows if he will in a few months time!
So anyway, this is a ultra-thin gold bangle from 5octobre. I was drawn to how unusual it is, not like a regular simple bangle. Love the smooth solid stones (it’s some semi-precious gemstone that I’ve forgotten the name of. Or rather, I wasn’t paying attention to the lady when she was telling me.. was too entranced looking at the bracelet!), and the fine gold band. It is also made in more of a petite sizing, so it fits my wrist well.
And if you’re a sucker for delicate chains like I am, you’ll be besotted with Gag et Lou. ALL their stuff is drapey and thin, and come with a myriad of charms and thread colours, so you’ll spend ages choosing just one, like I did!
I ended up with a silver chain and black thread combination, with a star charm. I picked it because it was pretty basic and I could wear it with my other jewellery unobtrusively. Plus, I adore stars 🙂
Check out their packaging!!
Of course, I’ve spent the past few weeks obsessively surfing French jewellery sites for pretty little treasures. And…. I’ve found SO MANY! Eek!!
