Monica Vinader has teamed up with sustainable fashion influencer and model Doina Ciobanu to create a collection of beautiful and sustainable heirloom-quality jewellery. Having made it onto Forbes 30 under 30 entrepreneurs list, Ciobanu has one of the strongest personal brands in the United Kingdom and is definitely no stranger to the world of sustainability. In fact, she’s considered somewhat of a poster child for the movement.

With 604,000 followers on Instagram and counting, Ciobanu has used her influence to bridge the worlds of sustainability and fashion and it hasn’t gone unnoticed. Looking to tap into her influence to drive change, the No More Plastic Foundation, eco-responsible communication agency Eco-Age and the UN Circular Fashion Summit have enlisted her as an ambassador and speaker.

The Monica Vinader x Doina collection will be the British jeweller’s maiden collection made from 100 percent recycled sterling silver and features the brand’s emblematic 18 carat gold and rose gold vermeil.
This is all part of Monica Vinader’s commitment to completely move away from mined materials, with all future collections comprising recycled sterling silver by the end of 2020.

Inspired by the idea of timelessness, pieces from the collection aren’t only beautifully crafted but also have a vintage heirloom quality about them. The interchangeable design also makes these jewellery a versatile addition to your collection.
The Italian glamour from the 1950s also served as inspiration for the collection. Think rich textures, architectural shapes and intense gold. A perfect example of this is the Doina Gemstone Necklace featuring lightweight woven chains and mesmerising green onyx.
The Monica Vinader x Doina is available on their website, with prices ranging from S$95 to S$825.
