Simone was on a quest to find a truly special gift for her dear friend, marking both a birthday and an astonishing 50 years of friendship. Her friend was born in January, so Simone thought it would be charming to incorporate a birthstone. She also wanted to playfully integrate the letter ‘V’ into the jewelry design, as both their last names began with ‘V’. Thus, the concept of a ‘Friendship Jewel’ was born.

- 14kt yellow gold
- (medium) long, and
Simone gave me creative freedom, and the result was the culmination of our collaboration.
The recipient of Simone’s heartfelt gift was overjoyed with the earrings and now wears them often, not just as a beautiful accessory, but as a cherished reminder of their enduring friendship.
