You know the feeling when you check some online shop and your eye catches an item. You instantly know that this item is meant for you. This is what happened to me when I first read about the Mirabelle fair trade jewellery and went to research their website. My eye caught on this beautiful pendant necklace and I couldn’t shake my mind off it for several days, so I ended up buying it. Once I received it, it hasn’t left my neck for more than a night’s sleep and a shower. Yes, I absolutely love it! But before I tell you more about my necklace I will share with you what I have learned about this beautiful jewellery brand.
Mirabelle is an ethical jewellery brand that produces beautiful hand-made collections, which are very reasonably priced. The brand prides on fusing ethnic and contemporary aesthetics, being inspired by nature and sourcing and producing ethically to savour the natural beauty and have happy employees. Most of the collections are hand-made by British craftsmanship, but there is a fair trade collection as well that is entirely produced in Indonesia.
The jewellery is not only ethical, but has a meaning behind every piece as well. The founder of Mirabelle Jewellery, Veronique Henry, explains “With a strong belief in the power of jewellery to uplift the spirits, collections are imbued with symbolism and meaning, from crystal stones to ancient talismans”. The website has a comprehensive information on the semi-precious stones, their origins, history, what they were used for. Even if you don’t believe in any of that, it is still interesting and provides your piece of jewellery with a meaning. I also appreciated the information on how to care for the jewellery and their size guide.
The necklace I bought, is a gorgeous lotus pendant with a garnet on the middle. I think part of the reason why I was so attracted to it is it’s connection to yoga and the seventh chakra, which is a source of enlightenment and spiritual connection to the universe. Whereas, the garnet used to be popular as a talisman and a protective stone believed to light up the night. I absolutely love this message behind the pendant and it makes the necklace just that much more beautiful to me!
The Mirabelle Jewellery website has a wonderful collection of intricate and different jewellery, which I definitely advice to visit! They have even more pieces on their Etsy page, which is kind of like their outlet. In addition, you can check their Instagram account and their blog for more information.
