MARIE ON WHAT'S MAKING HER JEWELLERY AND HER SUMMER SO PRECIOUS

What's your favourite thing about west London?
All the pretty houses and great food (don't blame me, I'm pregnant).

In three words, describe west London style.
Effortless. Stylish. Simple.

Silver, gold, rose gold, or all of the above?
Had you asked me a year ago I would have said silver, but at the moment I'm really into gold jewellery. The look is perfect against sun-kissed skin.

What's your favourite gemstone colour for summer?
I love wearing black onyx and dendritic agate all year round.

On an average day, how many pieces of jewellery will you wear?
Most likely a few bracelets and some stacked rings. I always prefer to keep it simple.

What are your jewellery staples?
A fingertip ring I got from my husband right before we moved to London, Monica Vinader Fiji friendship braceletsand a watch to finish off the arm party.

What do you love most about MV?
The pieces stand out but are never too much - and to me that makes the best jewellery. I love jewellery that completes an outfit and reflects your style and personality.

What's your favourite MV piece and why?
My black Fiji bracelet is my staple. It's so simple and goes with everything - and it's got mine and my husband's initials engraved, which only makes it more precious.

Where is your number one summer hangout?
Since I'm out and about a lot during the week, I love to hang out in our garden with my dogs. There's no better place (or company) on a hot summer's day.

Tell us about your happiest memory from a London summer.
It's happening right now! I'm expecting a baby boy in early October, so to me summer 2014 will always be one to remember.
