Our jewellery is the perfect 13th-anniversary gift because it contains lace which is the traditional theme gift for her for this celebration. We create the only lace jewellery of this quality in the world. It is an original concept.
When the alternative textiles anniversary gifts choices are mainly scratchy underwear and lingerie, this is a 13th Anniversary Gift idea any wife will be happy to receive. It takes the lace and modernises the concept through setting it in contemporary Plexiglas. What better traditional thoughtful gift can a Husband or Partner give? A beautiful textile gift for a couple celebrating their marriage or anniversary.
We use the finest couture lace is a textile handmade in Northern France by one of the world’s oldest lace-making houses. The pattern dates back from the 16th century and is woven today on modern 19th-century textile lace looms.
It’s a hugely complex experience that results in effortless ‘shadows’ in the floral design and extremely fine detailing. This lace-making is a dying art, handed down through the generations and now shared by only a few highly skilled artisans who have the passion and love to ensure it continues.
Not unexpectedly, this couture lace made only in Northern France has been favoured by modern royalty and celebrities alike – Queen Elizabeth II, Jackie Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Kate Middleton (wedding dress), and Amal Clooney.
