GOLD & ME

FINE JEWELLERY

CREATED by DESIGNER MALENE BIRGER

STORY

Since I was a child jewellery has been a fascination of mine, and I have always had a deep desire to bejewel myself. I have during my adult life travelled the globe, but never without my jewelleries. I cannot imagine not wearing jewels.

I think that jewels is a very personal thing, they can be inherited, hold a memory, tell a story or simply inspire you. My collection is inspired by antique Egyptian jewelleries.

Enjoying my summer holiday (as I always do) in 2019 on the Greek Island of Skyros, I felt the desire to design some new jewels for myself. I was introduced to a talented goldsmith and a wonderful German woman, Christina Dolfen-Alexandrou.

During that summer, I designed some earrings, and our relationship and collaboration began, it became the start of GOLD & ME.

Christina has lived on Skyros for more than 35 years and I have visited the Island since I was 28 years old.

My main focus is to create jewelleries that are inspiring and personal to you, with attention to details and to support a small local business.

You can carry and wear GOLD & ME anywhere and wear them with any outfit, you can dress up or down, the design is timeless, contemporary and personal.

ENJOY

BAROQUE PEARLS:


ALL PEARLS HAVE THERE OWN NATURAL, SHAPE AND FORM.
Baroque pearls are pearls with an irregular non-spherical shape. Shapes can range from minor aberrations to distinctly ovoid, curved, pinch, or lumpy shapes. Most cultured freshwater pearls are baroque because freshwater pearls are mantle-tissue nucleated instead of bead nucleated. Cultured saltwater pearls can also be baroque, but tend to be more teardrop-shaped due to the use of a spherical nucleation bead.
