The epitome of glamour, this luxury Paris brand is much loved by stars from Beyonce and Hailey Bieber to Kate Moss and Charlize Theron.

My First Diamond jewellery collection is a celebration of the diamond with two beautiful designs of pendants and bracelets that can be worn individually or layered – perfect for embracing the stacking trend that has been going strong for several seasons.
Available in an 18ct white gold or pave version, these pieces feature a sparkling, bezel-set diamond, which appears to be suspended as if by magic. The pave design boasts a glittering pave setting of brilliant-cut diamonds, reflecting the excellence and expertise of this luxury brand.
Messika My First Diamond Bracelet £690 with the Pave Bracelet priced at £1,730. The My First Diamond Pave necklace is £1910 with the non-pave bracelet at £950.
The perfect gift or self-treat, My First Diamond puts a spin on the traditional chain bracelet with in all of its forms with a range of pieces featuring new contemporary graphic designs. From its very first collections, the jewels that took shape in Valérie’s imagination and in the skilled hands of her artisans, goldsmiths, stone cutters and setters were exciting and exuberant, revolutionary yet underpinned with a deep reverence for her legacy, and driven by her personal passion for the king of gems.
Much of Valérie’s inspiration comes from art as well as street style, which imbues this brand with a dynamic urban beat. She also draws inspiration from fashion, haute couture, and from the great classical themes of jewellery history, which are contemporised and rejuvenated through her vision for the Messika brand.
Nicola Edwards, GM for Mappin & Webb in Glasgow, said: “We are delighted that Messika is now available exclusively in Mappin & Webb Glasgow, indeed we are the only stockists of this renowned French jewellery house in Scotland. The My First Diamond Collection quite literally celebrates the diamond, delicate in its design, the pave and non-pave pieces look fantastic when layered or stacked together or worn individually.
“We’ve had a lot of interest in Messika, it’s a contemporary and luxurious yet accessible designer brand, which is a huge hit with celebrities due to its intricate yet simply stylish detailing and quality design.’
