Recently I was sent a beautiful set of ring stacks from Annie Haak. I love ring stacks, I think they make your hands look really pretty and when I came across Annie Haak I couldn’t resist. Each of her ring stacks are designed to make you stand out this summer – perfect for our Cruise next month!
Pavia ring stack
I received the Pavia ring stack in its beautiful box and pouch. It really does look wow. It’s the perfect gift for a loved one. It just looks so special in its packaging, the little ribbon was a lovely surprise. The Pavia ring stack is named after the small town and commune of Pavia located in south western Lombardy. Beautiful elegance taken from this town is captured in our stunning 925 sterling silver and 14ct rose gold bonded duo ring stack. I love rose gold and that’s what attracted me to this set. The set is only £50.00 and makes a really special gift for someone you love.
A little bit of history
Having always loved to “make and create”, Annie produced personalized children’s pictures and hand-made cards before she began to sell jewellery and design items for a friend’s label. However it was an unfortunate accident that provided the opportunity to put pen to paper on a debut collection of her very own. After her husband Jonny was critically injured in a motorbike accident in Bali, Annie flew out and spent six days at his bedside where she had the time to sketch her initial designs as he recovered.
On the same trip, a chance meeting with a taxi driver turned Annie’s dream into reality as he introduced her to a silversmith who transformed those initial drawings into sterling silver charms. They included the ‘My Guardian Angel’ charm that has become her signature piece and subsequently watched over the rapid expansion of her enterprise.
Hand-crafted from 925 sterling silver or gold and complemented by the glint of Swarovski crystal or colourful gleam of gems and semi-precious stones, all of Annie’s designs carry special meaning to the creator which is relayed by way of mantras or symbols representing luck, love, protection, strength and wellbeing. Enhancing her personal touch on each item is the company’s brand mark – the three hearts representing each of Annie’s children: Anoushka, Jochen and Naomi.
With plans afoot for individualised wedding jewellery, a ‘mother and daughter’ range and a children’s collection, the future for ANNIE HAAK Designs is sure to be sparkling so watch this space for more exciting developments! To view the full collection visit www.anniehaak.com.
