Lucie manufacture’s jewellery for the new generation of ‘collectors’. She places heavy emphasis on the power of jewellery in creating meaning and history in people’s lives.
There was a time when jewellery was given to celebrate landmark events in one’s life; a courtship, a graduation, a marriage, a birth, an anniversary or a death. These pieces were passed down through families to bond relatives long after they had left this earth. It is Lucie’s intention as a maker to have her pieces become her customers heirlooms.
The addition of the stone heavy Ceremonial Collection is for the budding bride and romantic in all of us and it has been seen by the industry as a breath of fresh air in the engagement ring scene.
” I wanted to mix up the idea of the diamond engagement ring. Girls have a lifetime to grow into big princess-cut diamonds, but now when we are seeing lots of young couples getting hitched, I think, why not try a coloured precious stone which is feminine and original?.
I wanted to instil a sense of whimsy into the pieces by making them with dainty bands suitable for stacking. I adore the tradition of promise rings, which were given by suitors to pledge their love to their lucky lady. These rings featured stones with meaning – like emeralds , which are a symbol of hope and were given by lovers to remind them to stay faithful. I wanted to bring back some of that romance to jewellery”.
