British designer Annina Vogel unveils Victorian Engravings collection inscribed with iconic quotes

Available exclusively at Liberty in London, Annina Vogel's Victorian Engravings rings and necklaces are made from Victorian gold and engraved with famous quotes


London-based jewellery designer Annina Vogel recently unveiled her new Victorian Engravings collection at Liberty, the capital's historic department store on Regent Street. Tapping into today's trend for nostalgia, each piece is inscribed with a quote or saying by an iconic figure, bringing history into a modern context.

Renowned for creating completely unique pieces, each of Annina's Victorian Engravings jewels is made from original Victorian gold, reconditioned and reworked into fashionable, easy-to-wear creations. Gold signet rings and pendants with delicate chains are hand-engraved with humorous sayings from famous authors, poets and even royalty, including Queen Elizabeth, Charlotte Brontë and Oscar Wilde, who famously uttered the phrase "every saint has a past, every sinner has a future", which Vogel has engraved onto one of the rings in curling, antique-style script.

Her highly individual creations have garnered Vogel a host of high-profile followers, including Kate Moss, Cara Delevigne, Alexa Chung and Keira Knightley. Since launching at Bergdorf Goodman in New York, Jessica Parker and the fashionable Fanning sisters have also become fans.

The perfect present at any time of year, in the run-up to Christmas Vogel will be joined by an on-site engraver at Liberty, who can customise a piece with the quote of your choice at no extra cost.
