London-based jewellery designer and maker Jessica de Lotz’s sentimental and totally gorgeous jewellery has been pulling on my heart strings since one of her hand-stamped wax seal bangles landed on my desk at Grazia a few years ago. Her unique aesthetic is spellbinding and the passion Jessica pours into her creations comes to life through her amazing attention to detail; from the minute engravings to be found in hidden places on some of her pieces to the wonderful packaging in which she presents her jewellery. Buying a piece of Jessica’s work invites you into her world; its a 360º experience. And it's her flare for making things from a bygone era contemporary without diluting their history that makes Jessica’s designs so powerful, from developed flea market finds to her bespoke and highly personal designs, Jessica’s special jewellery makes you feel just that!
For Valentine’s Day this year Jessica updated her stacking, initial rings collection to include ‘LO’ and ‘VE.’ I wear the ‘LO’ on my finger and my boyfriend wears the ‘VE’ around his neck on a chain...
