Lara Melchior Jewelry – Yes, Please

Mon Dieu. Good thing I live far away from Paris, because this jewelry designer would make me go broke… My Mom instilled in me, at a very early age, “only buy good quality jewelry (if needed you can always sell) and less is always more.” I’m still faithful to her wisdom.

I found the works of Lara Melchior over at my good friend Mia’s blog. It was this ring that first caught my attention. Two gold/diamond sets brilliantly linked for a full finger look.

Sophisticated sexy or what!

Simple and beautiful.

More pretty rings.

Honeycomb inspired pieces are part of her unique signature look.

Stunning bracelets. Gold and diamonds.

This is Laura Melchior herself. (Oh no, I could be her Mom!!).

And this is her studio in Paris.

Again. Incroyable! To it all.

Hugs to you all and Happy Long Memorial Weekend to all my US readers. I will see you back on Tuesday!

  • Hi Monika,

    Beautiful jewelry indeed, very delicate and simple. When are you coming to the east coast?

    Enjoy your long weekend!


  • Wait! Not fair, shes young, designs gorgeous baubles AND gets a studio in Paris (and one thats ultra cool and hip too)! Wow, shes a triple threat..beautiful things, when does your order arrive :)

  • Victoria Athens says:

    Her jewelry is not only beautiful but unique. She has a bright future.

  • Big sigh…to be young, talented and living in Paris lucky gal. I love simple but elegant pieces and this line is right up my alley. Enjoy your long weekend too Monika!


  • Charlotta says:

    Stunning pieces darling. I love the ‘raw’ feel to the structures.
    I agree with jewelry. Less is more and I’d rather have an understated statement piece than layers of bling bling. Think it’s a very Swedish ting isn’t it!? :)

    Have a wonderful long weekend. Enjoy and relax.

    xx Charlotta

    PS> Kommer ni hem i Sommar? I så fall när. Vi måste ju ses med alla barnen osv. Kanske rent av i Mariefred.. Vi är i Skåne två veckor i Juli, men annars säkert hemma (med undantag av små helg utflykter osv).

  • Hi Mon,
    I’m glad you had a chance for a little break and some beautiful open space in Vancouver!

    This jewelry line is delicious! That Byzantine cross necklace had me at hello!!! I don’t have a lot of jewelry, but love the fine pieces I have. Your mother advice was so wise!

    Wishing you a wonderful, restful Memorial Day Weekend!!!
    xoxo Elizabeth

  • What a fun post Mon! Not only do we get to see that amazing jewelery but also her stylish studio. Wow. I am with you on the rings – love those. BTW I am taking your advice about posting less often to focus on my other goals…more updates on that when we see each other next. :) Just saw your comment about getting together in early June – I’d love to!
