Monica Vinader is a British affordable luxury jewellery brand
Monica Vinader founded her eponymous business in 2007 to provide customers with affordable luxury pieces that bridge the gap between costume and fine jewellery.
The brand quickly became renowned for its iconic friendship bracelets, vibrant gemstones and cutting edge diamond pieces enabling customers to style, stack and personalise their jewellery. The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Winslet and Alicia Vikander are among Monica Vinader’s many high profile customers.
The business, which is run by Monica and her sister Gabriela, currently has three London stores (in Chelsea, Mayfair and Canary Wharf) and a rapidly growing global footprint in the US and Asia; its jewellery can be found in department stores both in the UK and internationally.
The investment will support the continued growth of the business. This will include a further roll-out of its own and franchised stores, expansion of its wholesale distribution, particularly in the US, as well as continued investment in its own e-commerce channel.
