I have been invited by Al Ostoura recently to preview their latest arrival by french accessories brand called: Les Nereides at their Lime Light boutique in the Avenues Phase II. I've always had a soft spot for whimsical jewelry, but what I saw that night was on a complete new level of whimsical. Founded in Nice-France in 1980 by Pascale and Enzo Amaddeo, Les Nereides offers a beautiful and distinguished selection of necklaces, bracelets, and earrings inspired by nature, culture, and fairytales. The handcrafted collection is quite reasonably priced too, the pieces range between approximately KD 15-KD 60. The brand also has a more affordable line, featured way below, called N2 line, which tends to be a tad funkier, it would definitely appeal to those who are looking for unique, fun and whimsy accessories. I went crazy over the pearl and snail inspired set shown here so I got the necklace with the matching earrings. And now after taking a closer look at my Les Nereides photos, I think I'm heading back there soon for a couple of pieces that missed my fashion radars.
Loved these floral charm.. you can add them to any gold pendant you have..
Loved these rosette decorated earrings... reminded me of Prada's jewelry
Les Nereides Alphabet Fleuri initial necklaces make a great gift idea!
