We don't just make jewellery, we help you feel like you. Because luxury's a feeling we all deserve.
Back in the early 2000s, jewellery was either a luxury purchase (read: incredibly expensive, and usually a gift) or lower-priced, trend-led and poor quality. Women who wanted to buy themselves jewellery were cut out of the market by eye-watering prices, or disappointed by cheap and cheerful pieces without longevity or conscious craftsmanship.
Enter: one lightbulb moment.
Founder and CEO Monica Vinader grew up surrounded by arts and objects from her parents' antiques business. A lot of which featured a technique called gold vermeil (pronounced ver-may), where gold was applied to sterling silver to create stunning pieces in the 19th century. What if that same technique could be used to make a new style of jewellery that was affordable but no less beautiful? Many told her it couldn't. But it could. Working from her Norfolk studio (still the MV HQ today) Monica innovated a new category between fashion and fine jewellery, using gold vermeil to create beautiful and affordable pieces every woman could buy for herself and style 100% her way. Joined by her sister, Gaby, Monica Vinader became not just a name, but a brand in 2008, offering timeless jewellery to women who wanted something wearable, long-lasting and a little different. More than a decade on, our designs are regularly worn by the likes of Bella Hadid, Olivia Palermo and the Duchess of Cambridge. And, more importantly, they're worn by you. An MV piece is a memento you can keep close every day.
Born in San Sebastian, Spain, Monica is an artist, adventurer and designer. After studying Fine Arts in London, she was introduced to jewellery design at her first job. From there, she was hooked. She travelled the world for both work and sport until these travels and her love for accessible luxury merged into the eponymous brand she still runs today, beloved around the world for its simplicity, luxury and conscious creation.
INNOVATION MEETS INTEGRITY
Our jewellery is 'touched by a thousand thumbs' before it makes its way to you. Skilled gem cutters in Jaipur, master craftsmen in Thailand and our very own design team in Norfolk inject their unique artistry to make every piece unique. Art, architecture and the world around us constantly inspire us, as do our customers. We love seeing how you mix, match, stack and layer your favourite MV pieces.
LOOKING TO A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
In April 2020, we started making all our jewellery using 100%
recycled silver. It's a step we've made to make immediate
reductions in CO2 and be kinder to our environment.
All our deliveries and returns are now carbon-neutral, and our packaging is all fully FSC certified, with the aim of being 100% recyclable very soon. The same goes for removing single-use plastic wherever possible. It's a lifelong commitment and we're improving and learning every day.
