Love and Object

Love and Object are designers and curators of modern vintage jewellery. We have an online store and wholesale to local fashion retailers.

Since 2013 we flipped the stale connotations of shopping for vintage on its head. The brand was established from a desire to offer a glamourous solution to the mass produced and environmentally detrimental fashion jewels flooding the market.

In late 2016 we launched our in house fine jewellery brand ‘OLYMPIA’ influenced by our love of classical studies, art and vintage jewels. We wanted to create a progressive, scalable luxury jewellery line with the same unique look and brand ethos as our vintage collections.

Elle + Riley

Yolande and her daughter Elle decided that after years in diverse roles within the fashion industry, they wanted to create something of their own. Something that reflected their own lifestyle and what they love about fashion; a blend of style and functionality, comfort and design, luxury and necessity.

Cashmere was the simple answer.

Elle and Yolande knew that it was the perfect solution for year-round style and comfort, no matter where in the world you are. Timeless. Understated. Beautiful. And now, affordable.
