WIN: one of two $250 Leoni & Vonk jewellery gift vouchers

Nikki ParkinsonFashion 196 Comments

In case you had been hiding under a Styling You rock (or just new to my blog), you know that I’m obsessed by a big fan of statement jewellery.

To me, a statement piece is something that acts like the icing on the cake of your outfit. Really good icing. The kind of icing that makes you so get why kids just lick it off and leave the cake.

Now, the bespoke jewellery designers at Victoria-based Leoni & Vonk give good outfit icing.

They design and make contemporary pieces as well as modern-day classics.

See what I mean?

Here is what Leoni & Vonk has to say:

Leoni & Vonk is all about good quality, well-designed jewellery. Our aim is to produce interesting, on trend pieces which transcend any age barriers. Good design and quality is our mission – our pendants are hand cast in Australia and as far as possible we only use Australian suppliers– this is very important to us and believe that is one aspect of our jewellery which stands us apart from other imported labels.

The majority of our pieces are made from sterling silver with 14kt gold fill accents. We also use a smattering of semi precious stones to bring an element of colour to the pieces. The current Summer 2011/12 colour palette is inspired by the lazy, hazy days of summer – glamour beach style. Stunning statement flower pendants, brushed silver leaf necklaces and inspirational sterling silver tags all combine in a collection which has already proved extremely popular with retailers Australia wide.

We also produce a bespoke collection of one-off pieces using vintage treasures collected from all over the world – vintage watch faces, antique spoons, antique Vesta cases and photo lockets are all given a new lease of life in the Leoni & Vonk style.

Leoni & Vonk jewellery is stocked in galleries and boutiques throughout Australia and New Zealand and online in their own online store and at Young Republic.  You can also find news and special offers on the designers’ Facebook page

  3. With red hait like mine, there’s only one piece for me…

  15. ‘Let your spirit Fly’ necklace as I can just picture my wife wearing this around her wonderful neck; she’d look fantastic wearing it.

  16. How I love this necklace’s philosophy,
    The simple words mean so much to me,
    I tell my daughter, ‘Let Your Spirit Fly’,
    And soar high up to the sky,
    Stretch out your wings,
    See what life brings,
    Don’t be afraid of who you are.
    The ground below is not so far,
    We grow stronger with the tumbles,
    The good times sweeter for the stumbles,
    Life is for living,
    Each day is a new beginning…

  17. Let your Spirit Fly Necklace is a fave. It symbolises exactly what My Mum said to me in the last few months of her life.

  29. I love the bird with text. Sometimes during the day if things are getting tough, it’s great to have a nice piece of jewellery to stroke and remind you that while there’s a lot of ugliness ‘out there’ sometimes, you have something beautiful to hold. I like an inspirational text too – some simple words to remind you that life is bigger than one stressful moment. I like the idea of being reminded to ‘let your spirit fly…’

    Thanks Nikki

  34. My favourite piece is the Leather Balloon Necklace because I like the contrast of the silver and leather and the shape of the hot air balloon.

  35. They are all very pretty, but my favourite is the ‘Let your spirit fly’ locket. I don’t wear very much jewellery (usually just a pair of plain silver or pearl stud earrings) but I do so love silver lockets, and that little birdy is just so darn cute!

  36. Definitely the ball bracelet, gorgeous (but I think my bubba would like it more _ I can picture her deciding that those sweet shiny balls look like the perfect thing to ease her aching gummies…).

  37. My neck is bare!

    Flowing leaf marks freedom
    gentle sway would make me calm.
    Polished silver would go with any style

  44. Let Your Spirit Fly locket – there should be no limits to your possibilities and this locket will be a constant reminder of that!

  48. I love them all; such beautiful statement pieces. If I had to pick one it would be the long coral bird necklace – just devine!!!!

    I think I’d go with the Long Bird and Ball necklace – simple, beautiful, entrancing…exactly what a statement piece should be! 🙂

  53. My favorite piece from the Leoni and Vonk store is the Coral and White Jade Necklace, the coral/orange and white palette is so on trend this season and the simplicity of the piece will transcend time.

  54. Both the flower Bracelet and Necklace are my favorite, they define the idea of making a statement, to me. Whilst being delicately beautiful, I imagine so many outfits to team this with 🙂

  55. I absolutely adore the flower necklace and matching bracelet as not only do they make a statement, they epitomise Spring and Summer which, despite the grey clouds here today, I KNOW is on its way.

  56. Oh i just adore the number 4. Bird pendant….it is so mystical and quaint.
    I actually own a little blue bird ( a real one!) and this would be perfect for me xx

  57. Love the coral bird necklace- great for summer and reminiscent of holidays snorkelling at coral reefs and enjoying warm tropical beaches.

  58. I love the ‘Let your Spirit Fly’ locket for the Bluebird. It reminds me of the Bluebird locket I had as a teenager (wish I still had it!) and the Bluebird symbolizes cheerfulness, happiness, prosperity, hearth and home, good health, new births, the renewal of springtime, etc. These are all things I want to attract into my life. LOVE the collection <3

  59. I love the ‘let your spirit fly’ necklace. Not only is it beautiful to admire, it’s simple wording is a great reminder to honour your spirit and let it be free to connect with and inspire everyone around you. I love pieces like this that can be inspirational and beautiful!

    1. I adore the coral bracelet, and the long BIG Coral piece. they will go so beutifully with my Coral and Turquoise cross necklace and my Coral and Gold earings. These pieces are beautifully made, gorgeous quality and very very eyecatching! Very luxurious!!

  60. I love the square Paris locket ,after a trip there earlier this year this piece would remind me of a wonderful time
    and of course then I’d always have Paris!
