Diamonds are a girl’s best friend! Hence, you bet Olivia was jolly when she met diamonds at Vashi!
Earlier this week, I was invited to a jewellery design session with Vashi Diamonds. The session was all about designing the perfect bracelet to go in Vashi’s newest collection. Before going to this session, I had no idea what to expect, but thinking back to it, I should have thought about some jewellery design ideas before going.
The Jewellery Design Session took place at Vashi’s HQ in London. When I arrived, I was kindly greeted by Nina who took Aizak and I to the design room. The session started with a brief chat and introduction to Vashi. The fact that Vashi Dominguez the designer and owner of Vashi Diamonds (as the name suggests) has worked with Cheryl Cole and Rita Ora definitely caught my attention! I LOVE Cheryl and Rita! Also, with thousands of pounds worth of stones lying in front of us, we were definitely keen to learn more!
After the brief intro, we were also taught about the different types of gem cuts, settings and golds. I also got to use a jewellers loupe! How cool is that? But I was rubbish at remembering all the names…. haha, too much drinks and no dinner I think.
Now the most important thing of all, we designed our own jewellery! I managed to sketch out three ideas, not very good ones, but I’m really excited to see the floral bracelet being re-drawn by one of Vashi’s illustrators! If it’s good enough, it’ll even be featured in Vashi’s jewellery collection! That would be so cool! I would totally get it, only if I had that sort of money to spare!
Anyways, the girls at Vashi were wonderful and they helped us a lot during the design session both in terms of helping us to draw out the pieces and choosing the gems and metals to use. I had a wonderful time at Vashi Diamonds and learnt loads about jewellery design, which I didn’t know before! I also got to take some awesome pictures of Vashi Diamond rings, which I’ll end the post with! <3
