On Wednesday (15th June 2021), I had the pleasure of meeting the immensely talented Leora Moreno at a Showroom in the OXO Tower. It was an extremely fun evening spent learning about her gorgeous jewellery brand Leo With Love. Leo created Leo With Love in 2016 after she made a pinky promise with her sister that they would start their respective businesses together after her sister recovered from a near-fatal illness. Her sister (the inspiration for the Zina earrings) came up with the name Leo With Love and since then the business has grown strength to strength.
Leo’s jewellery is inspired by empowered women and for empowered women. She states ‘When women wear her jewellery, I want them to feel as strong and confident as the ones who inspired me. It’s their symbolic armour to go and get things done today- no matter what they’re doing. They got this!’. Tegan sounds like a great name for a new piece does it not? (haha).
I love the fact that Leo’s jewellery is eco friendly as are all the materials used for her jewellery, as they are sourced from Fair-trade certified suppliers. What’s better than having a new statement piece? Knowing that the jewellery you are wearing is made using Ecosilver… 100% recycled silver made from scrap jewellery, medical equipment, electronics and giftware. Before meeting Leo, I didn’t even know this was something that could be done.
Leo had recently released her new Leo With Love Signature Collection: a selection of silver pieces that allow you to wear your story with pride. Each piece is embellished with the iconic Leo With Love logo and the the back of the collection can be engraved for free with up to 20 characters*, from names, dates, sayings or ‘just a quick personal pick-me-up to re-iterate that YOU are a badass and you deserve only greatness’.
I choose to have my name and my two sisters names (Samm and Hannah) engraved on my beautifully delicate bracelet so I can keep them close by. (Don’t tell my two brothers, they may get jealous).
The Signature Collection Bracelet is priced at £90 and is simply stunning. It pairs perfectly with my other jewellery. Other jewellery pieces include the Signature Collection Pendants, which can also be engraved (£100) and the new interchangeable Signature Collection Earrings (£110). The earrings can be worn with a high-shine cubic zirconia, or with the intertwining LWL logo. Mix and match for any occasion, or wear one version in each ear. Each piece is made in-house at the Leo With Love London studio and has just a two-day turnaround**.
To purchase the new Signature Collection, visit www.leowithlove.com. Or even get in contact with Leo as she’s more than happy to create a custom piece that is uniquely you. You can find Leo’s designs at the JeDeCo SHOWROOM at: Unit 1.10 First Floor Riverside, Oxo Tower Wharf, Barge House Street, Southbank, London SE1 9PH
