Golden gilt

Emma BracefieldFrom vintage pins to my aunt’s gold chains from ex-lovers, to my tea for two brass necklace from A Farmers Daughter – I have embraced the golden hue. A large part of this conversion began with discovering the range of colour and warmth afforded by the constructions of Vancouver designer Emma Bracefield. When Mr. Dandy designed a sterling silver engagement ring with Emma, we knew there was no other source for our bands. Organic, polished, warm – Emma’s use of gold is so clean and resembles objects plucked from a sea bed. Our white gold wobble rings soften and glow the longer we wear them, while the weight of the band reassures like a heavy quilt, a cup of coffee, a long kiss. Her use of rose gold is stunning, and I can only hope that I find an excuse to squeeze a piece from that collection alongside a future sentiment.
