MICHELLE GIVES HER THOUGHTS ON JEWELLERY, STYLE AND SUMMER

What's your favourite thing about central London?

That it's so walkable. Walking is the best way to discover so many off-the-beaten-path gems that London has to offer.

In three words, describe central London style.
Experimental. Daring. Confident.

Silver, gold, rose gold, or all of the above?
All of the above! I couldn't possibly choose between them. Besides, I feel like the new rules of mixing, matching, and layering mean that you don't actually have to choose. The tonal differences complement each other, so stack to your heart's content.

What's your favourite gemstone colour for summer?
Easily Lapis. The blue is so calming. It reminds me of summers growing up by the lake.

On an average day, how many pieces of jewellery will you wear?
About 4-6, give or take some rings!

What are your jewellery staples?
Earrings and bracelets. I don't feel dressed without them.

The blue of the aquamarine is so calming. It reminds me of summers growing up by the lake.

What do you love most about MV?
That the designs are the perfect blend of understated yet memorable.

What's your favourite MV piece and why?
I love the Fiji Chain Bracelet. It's structured and fluid, minimal and eye-catching, all at the same time.

Where is your number one summer hangout?
Anywhere with a patio!

Tell us about your happiest memory from a London summer.
Definitely my parents' first visit to London. My dad loves history, so spent most of the visit gazing upward at all of the architectural details that most Londoners take for granted. My mom is a 'big city' girl at heart, so she was both overwhelmed and energised by the rhythm of London daily life.

The new rules of mixing, matching and layering mean you can stack to your heart’s content.
