For the stylish yet sentimental mom, signature jewelry pieces from Atelier VM such as the Orecchini Giove earrings and the iconic “L’Essenziale” welded love bracelet exude elegance, while carrying a special underlying meaning that she will take with her for the rest of her life.
These minimal yet refined pieces will seamlessly fit into her everyday ensemble, eventually becoming entwined with her as more than a piece of jewelry, but a symbolic ornament she can cherish forever.
Since 2014, ATELIER VM has been revolutionizing the jewelry-wearing experience with the introduction of L’Essenziale. The L’Essenziale collection presents an array of 18-carat gold bracelets with no clasp in sight. They are invisibly welded on to the wrist to form an eternal strand.
A collection defined by love and connection, bonds are welded to the wrist by a golden thread. The wearer chooses the color and chain weight for the piece. As a result, they are tailor-measured and welded to their wrist in-store by an expert ATELIER VM artisan.
The addition of rigid bracelets to the core L’Essenziale offering this year presents an evolution to the core collection, and makes for a perfect addition to a layered look. The newly introduced Audace and Tota Pulchra bangles offer a unique aesthetic – bolder than the original L’Essenziale flexible chain bracelets yet subtle enough for everyday wear.
The minimal elegance of the L’Essenziale rigid melts delicately on the skin. A versatile and immutable symbol of love, L’Essenziale seals and celebrates unity in all of its gloriously diverse incarnations. It is soft, sheer, and sensual – and the memories it holds remain the wearer’s secret. Loving moms around the world will appreciate them.
ATELIER VM and L’Essenziale collections can be found at Nordstrom in Manhattan, New York as well as internationally at the brand’s two standalone retail locations in Milan, as well as via shop-in-shops at Le Bon Marche (Paris), Liberty London (UK) and Rinascente (Rome and Turin).
