Even though there was a shipping delay on my birthday gift this year, it was worth the wait. Dave surprised me with this Lee Renee pineapple pendant. I first fell in love with the piece with I interviewed the designer back in February of last year and had no idea I’d be spoiled with it months afterward. Isn’t it just the cutest thing? It’s tiny, as you can see in the stock images, but the attention to detail is wonderful and it has a nice weight to it. The solid silver piece is handmade in London with an 18k gold plate.
Behind the Baubles: Lee Renee
After working in advertising for many years, Lee Renée decided to pursue her first love: jewelry design. She trained under St. Martin’s and London Hatton Garden’s finest silversmiths for three years, officially launching her brand in July 2012. Her collection is full of wit and whimsy and it’s probably no surprise that the Miami-inspired collection is my favorite. The Art Deco flamingos and the dainty pineapple pendant are irresistible.
