I have been a fan of Merci Maman since the brand first started in 2007. The company where I worked would have small businesses in at lunch time to sell their goods every so often, and Merci Maman was one of those. The brand was set up by Beatrice de Montille, a french mum living in London, from her kitchen table and is now run by her and her husband, Arnaud, and a team of 20 in their offices in Putney. I went along to meet the team and see where the magic happens. Merci Maman‘s USP is that everything they produce is personalised. The engraving is done by a few very talented ladies on the team, who have extremely steady hands and beautiful handwriting. I watched some engraving in action and was fascinated to discover that it was all done by hand!
They have recently launched a gem collection, which is truly beautiful. I have their stacking ring set and love it.
I also have their personalised heart bracelet with all three children’s names on it, which now needs a new braid as I have worn it so much. Merci Maman have a restringing service if your string becomes worn or you just fancy a change of colour.
Here are my favourite pieces from the collection. They would make perfect presents for you, a friend, your children, extended family members or godchildren.
AND the lovely team at Merci Maman have kindly offered to give readers of my blog a 15% discount off ANY order using the code ‘Chloe15’. Christmas Orders can be placed up until the 21st December.
Meaningful, Affordable, Beautiful and FRENCH … what’s not to love?!
