A kindred spirit and soul-sister, Anabel Higgins graciously invited me into her home to show me her fine jewelry collection, which was my next stop on my #JewelryRoadTrip in Los Angeles. There are so many reasons to love and admire Annie, I honestly don’t know where to begin! Her house and her jewelry line are both true reflections of all things that inspire her, make her happy and make her tick. We both share a huge passion for antiques, both decor, furniture and jewelry, but most of all we both surround ourselves with all these things and are inspired by them everyday.
You may not know, but back in 2012 Annie was diagnosed with breast cancer. Through her surgeries and recovery, she decided to start her jewelry collection, something that has been looming for awhile. This new endeavor not only took her mind off of what she was going through but it helped her heal; jewelry often is much more powerful than we realize! A portion of every piece of Anabel Higgins Jewelry sold goes to cancer charities, which is wonderful.
Annie loves to take antique jewelry components, like a Victorian lava cameo or antique micromosaic, and recreate it with a modern twist. She also has a few antique motifs that she gravitates toward that she has incorporated into her Heritage Collection. A few of these include bees, anchors, medals, and dogs, which have been reimagined in a modern way, handmade using the best craftsmanship. Signet rings are a tried and true classic staple everyone should have in their jewelry lineup and Annie creates a few options! Her Scout Signet features an oval design which can be customized with gemstones or engraving around the centered monogram, which is done by hand. These are quite popular amongst her clients and I love how they can be worn on any finger, each changing up the look with whatever one you choose. Be bold and wear it on your pointer or be unique and rock it on your pinky! Annie also does a dog intaglio signet ring which is part masculine and part feminine, lending itself to be worn by anyone and everyone. It can easily become your signature ring.
Between the antique gushing, secret garden vibes and tasty treats, this was a visit to remember! Thanks Annie for inviting me into your home and sharing your love for jewelry with me. We had so much fun shooting in her backyard and hope you enjoy these photos.
