Special Memories with Links of London

Bracelet - Links of London Narrative Yellow Gold Bracelet
Ring - Links of London Timeless 18kt Rose Gold Vermeil Signet Ring
Style Theory: Memories are pretty special, that perfume your Mum always wore when you were little, the colour of a favourite dress, a piece of jewellery that was just 'her' these things can take you back to years gone by, back to those feelings of being looked after. For me it takes me back to a bright yellow, 70s kitchen, sunshine seemed to always be pouring through the windows, my Mum setting up 'shops' for me and my sisters to play, a pile of singles stacked up and dropping in turn on the record player...Stevie Wonder, Abba singing away in the background and lots of laughter. Friends popping in, always lots of kids - my parents have always had and still have an open door..'come in and have a cup of tea, stay for dinner, have a glass of wine'.... these memories are so powerful and mean so much to me.




For our little family we have our precious memories, I remember when I was pregnant with Jess, dancing around our (damp) flat in Wimbledon to Elton John's Tiny Dancer, I played it on a loop, I was convinced that this crazily active baby inside my tummy was a girl (she was!) I was blissfully naive, not knowing what was down the road, anticipation, excitement..the unknown. It was a crazy first 6 months with Jess, I could never predicted the super highs and the lows (thank goodness more highs than lows), I still call her my Tiny Dancer 10 years on...this beautiful Links of London Narrative bracelet is a wonderful memory of that time, I love it, it is engraved with 'Love your Tiny Dancer',the bracelet is delicate, strong and super luminous just like Jess. It is 18ct gold vermeil and sits perfectly on my wrist. A real Mother's Day treat, Links of London will engrave any jewellery (in the 'Engrave' category for free with a special message)

On to the second person that came into our lives with a huge big, fat ,bump (I was massive - Jack was 9lbs) he is my little rock, strong, sensitive, cool, aware with a wicked sense of humour. Nothing can reflect his secure demeanour better than a signet ring, engraved simply with JB - he is a dude and every time I look at this Timeless 18kt Rosr Gold Vermeil ring I will be reminded of him. 


It is so lovely to be given something to keep for Mother's Day, for the last few years my kids (via Russ) have bought me a little piece of jewellery with a special message on it, last year it was a ring with 'Love' on it, I wear it every day never taking it off, it is my most special piece of jewellery as it is from my little J's. I have added these two pieces of jewellery to my 'wear forever pieces'...the sign they are pretty special.

  3. Lovely post. I so love the Links Narrative bracelet. My husband got me the gold narrative bracelet for my b’day last year. Unfortunately it fell off when I was out shopping a month later and was never found/ returned. I’ve thought so much about buying another one but I’m afraid the toggle is too loose and I will lose it again.

  4. Lovely post - long time lurker - first time poster. I love how the jewellery matches your lovely chair!
    Can I ask - is your made chair comfortable? I would love one but cant decide if it seems comfy or not. Is it mainly for decoration or is it comfortable to sit on for prolonged periods of time? Was thinking about having it alongside my sofa in living room but not sure if it would be comfy enough? Any advice much appreciated! It's expensive but lovely.....
