What are your memories of jewellery growing up in a family such as yours?

Tell us about your family?

If you could pass on a few pieces (or one piece of jewellery) to your daughters or nieces, which ones would you pick? And why?

What jewellery do you wear every day?

What do you relish about the act of wearing jewellery?

Is there a style icon that you follow?

If you could commission a piece of jewellery...

what would you want to be made – for yourself or your descendants?

What is your favourite piece of jewellery

that your mother or grandmother wore? Why is it your favourite?

I wear what I like and what suits my personality and of course, pocket. I like to be comfortable in my shoes.

So every time I wear a ring or a necklace or a bracelet, I say it to myself, “This is who I am and I like it.”

What I love about jewellery is that I am a temporary custodian and the stories keep adding with every generation. Its beauty is timeless. It becomes better with age just like wine.
