August, I’m not sure what happened, but I guess losing track on time is a good sign when you’re holidaying, and that explains my absence here lately, amongst technical problems that resulted in several Mac-attacks for a while.

Well, I’m kicking off my August (and may it never end!) with my love for diamonds and personalised jewellery. As you may have noticed I’m a true fan of subtle pieces, and practically wear them every day, some which I never take off, same goes for my little girl. Though I’m a minimalist at heart my weakness are diamond pieces, and if I ever get close to over-accessorise I blame my love on them sparkling little things that I love combining with other special engraved pieces, #MYLOVE for those who might have noticed already.
Check out my latest collaboration with Monica Vinader here where I’m lined up with North-East-West and Central London girls.

Top and trousers by Stella McCartney, shoes by Jimmy Choo, bag by Tod’s, all jewellery by Monica Vinader.

Tom Wood


Add Norwegian jewellery brand Tom Wood on your radar if you haven’t already. Lust-worthy (!), timeless, solid, unisex rings in sterling silver, gold and quality gemstones (no platings in sight!), are my favourites, but the line also includes necklaces and earpieces, all with an androgynous feel.

Inez and Vinoodh

Inez and Vinoodh Jewellery

The legendary photographer duo and partners, Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, have launched a fine jewellery line, that is inspired by the couple’s own wedding rings and the love of their child, beautiful and romantic don’t you think. I for sure wouldn’t mind these beauties, oxidized silver pearl bangle (£535) and interlinked diamond rings (£1,595), you’ll find these and other pieces from the line here.

Ring-wise this spring was all about stacked chunky golden rings thanks to Balenciaga. My ring inspo for fall are these nail rings from Chanel’s Haute Couture A/W collection, beautiful, but lightyears from being practical, glue anyone?

Noor Fares A/W 2013

I’m a huge fan of my friend and talented designer Noor Fares fierce fine jewellery, and her hot galactic A/W collection includes loads of mouth watering pieces with the perfect balance of lines, beauty and rawness, not to mention a few juicy carats of diamonds(!).

3 favourites of mine right now that I especially like wearing with blue denim!

Estée Lauder’s Nail Lacquer in So Vain, except for the exceptional beautiful bottle this is the perfect nude’ish nail polish and only one coat is needed, launching in March 2013.
Hoop earrings by Topshop, not too chunky or heavy (for actually being worn!).
Leather cuff by Balenciaga, similar here.

De Beers + Hedvig + Wish list

A few weeks ago I was kindly asked by De Beers to pop by their beautiful store on Old Bond to pick my favourite pieces for a holiday wish list for their website. Needless to say I had a blast, I mean, trying on the finest jewellery and diamonds of all sizes isn’t really that hard and not something I do on a daily basis.

Here’s my “demure” diamond-dream-wish-list and not very surprisingly I ended up with quite classic delicate pieces that are not too much in your eyes, and can be worn stacked together, on their own or mixed with chunkier costume jewellery, just the way I like it. These beautiful 0.03 carat band rings (starts from £650) for instance are perfect for stacking, or use as pendants on a chain.

You’ll find all product information and prices here on De Beers website, and a big thank you to De Beers for the warm in-store experience!

Bjørg’s Heresy

Bjørg Jewellery Lookbook 2012

The award winning North-Norwegian jewellery designer, Bjørg, creates jewellery close to my heart, and her latest collection doesn’t disappoint, raw but yet so incredible beautiful.

Her latest video Heresy by Matias & Mathias which is is an extension of the lookbook might not be for the fainthearted so I’m warning you that some of you might find it quite disturbing. But I came across this blog post by the Swedish filmmaker Emil Klang and I couldn’t have said it better myself.

May 24, 2011


I’ve mentioned many times before how much I love Norwegian jewellery designer Bjørg‘s work and yesterday I tried on this silver ring when I stopped by Voga, which is one of the best stores I’ve ever stepped into in Norway. No buys for me this time though but I’m sure this ring will haunt me down…….

Fight or Flight

I really like some of the jewellery pieces in Made Her Think‘s Fall collection which is called Fight or Flight. A great storyline, model, styling and work is captured in the fall lookbook.

February 16, 2011


Morning folks, I’m back in London from the big apple and feel slightly jet lagged but there’s no time for that now.

These images was taken during Sachin+ Babi‘s presentation during NY fashion week the other day and despite that there were several nice pieces in the contemporary collection what really caught my attention was the accessories, especially the heavy dropping earrings, all the models wore them and I simply love them though I’m not really a earring kinda-girl.

Bjørg – Time Away

TIME AWAY – BJØRG 2010 from Matias&Mathias on Vimeo.

The Norwegian jewellery designer Bjørg was the winner of yesterday award. I’ve mentioned her design several times before but it’s worth mentioning again, I love her raw but yet settled details.

Ear Cuff

I’m not really a jewellery kind of girl, oh, I’ve got plenty in beautiful delicate boxes on display in my bedroom but I hardly ever wear any of it except a few bracelets and rings I don’t even notice are there. But now I really feel like wearing one ear cuff and I think that’s the next thing on my wishing list.

The one above are to die for by Alexander Wang, unfortunately it comes with a price tag same as his handbags so I’m looking for options, not totally the same thing though, more discrete, delicate but still with that raw detail, like these from the Danish brand Line&Jo, any other tip?
