L’Essayeur is a luxury avant-garde jewellery brand founded in London. The brand inherits the genes of science and art from its founders, Chengxi Wang and Jamie Lou, who respectively graduated from University of Oxford and University of the Arts London. When the spirit of scientific revolution meets bold artistic expression, L’Essayeur is more than a collection of precious metals and gems, but a wearable attitude of authenticity, rebellion and transformation.
To this purpose, each jewel is designed to tell stories of historical rebels. Our signature first collection centers on Galileo Galilei, who, in the face of imprisonment, unshakably defended his heliocentric theory and shook the center of the universe.
The brand name, L’Essayeur, was inspired by a book published in by Galileo Galilei in 1623.
The book is considered to be one of the pioneering works of the scientific method in Renaissance. Renovating the revolutionary spirit of Renaissance, L'Essayeur jewellery challenges traditions from the design process to the moment you embed our jewellery into who you are. Every piece of L’Essayeur jewellery is an experiment to disrupt the current fashion system. Instead of industrial mass production, Jamie and Chengxi traveled around Italy to seek prominent artisans for co-creation jewellery projects.
For example, L’Essayeur collaborates with contemporary sculptor Leonardo Bossio to challenge the borders between sculpture and jewellery. And cooperation with artist and goldsmith Antonella Sicoli is an experiment to restructure time. Each jewel is a unique piece that combines parts of antiques of different time and rearranges them in an innovative way.
At L’Essayeur, where disciplinary borders and orders of time are challenged, it’s impossible not to challenge status quo and who you are. Rebel and bring up reincarnation.
There is about a handful of things that I cannot get enough of, and pretty jewellery is top of that list. So as a girl does on a quiet night, browsing the world wide web, I stumbled upon YOVA Jewellery and #lovedit !!
Owner and designer Joanne Michulka started Yova Jewellery because she was unable to find jewellery pieces that she liked.
“I was thinking to myself maybe I would design and make my own jewellery, because I always loved jewellery”
The collection is made of titanium, and includes bracelets, earrings and leather bracelets. All the pieces are anti-allergic and is unique and beautiful designed.
Yova Amber Sun @ €80.00
Each piece is very special to her and she is very reluctant to pick her favourites, because we all know that we are not supposed to have a favourite child. But she admits, that, “When it comes to the bracelets, my first love is the Titanium bracelets with gemstones, especially the Amber gemstones. Her chosen earrings are the Anodized titanium earrings as they come in different colors and shapes, and are easy to wear with a simple blue jeans and crisp white shirt or a sleek sexy LBD.
Yodi Leaf Blue @ €25.00
To keep up with the seasons color trends she recommends the understated Yodi Long rectangle Violet earrings perfect for everyday wear.

“My goal is for every woman that wears my jewellery to feel and look beautiful, but I also want every piece to give her the strength to realize her dreams and goals.”
