Fine jewellery designer, Roseanna Croft, has introduced a new ring to empower women.
Named ‘Love, Me’, the single ring presents a woman’s independence, and has been designed to encourage women to choose themselves and buy their own jewellery.
Designed to fit any finger, the ring, which is adorned with a pear-shaped lab-grown diamond, comes in white, yellow, or rose gold, with 5% of profits going to female empowerment charity, Smart Works.
Discussing the inspiration behind the new product, Croft shares: “I created the ‘Love, Me’ ring through personal experiences of my own and experiences of the women around me who I love. I had to ‘choose myself’ from a young age. Having been through some tough events which took me to a low place but have ultimately shaped the person I am today.
“Since then, I have been on a wild journey of investing in myself and learning to truly love myself before anyone else. For me it’s about choosing myself over unhealthy and unsafe relationships, choosing myself over people who don’t support my dreams and choosing myself over society telling me I should be married and probably thinking about having children by now. This ring will mean something different to everyone, but ultimately has one underlying message – choose yourself.”
‘Love, Me’ was first introduced at a launch event last month, with guests such as brand representatives Willa Newton, who is a professional eventing rider and Stephanie Hill, former Miss England and translational oncologist.
The event also included a speech from chairwoman and trustee of Smart Works Birmingham, Philippa Pickavance.
All the rings are created by the designer herself from her from her boutique and workshop in Bakewell, Derbyshire.
