Maxine McQueen, a new curated online jewellery store

· Wednesday December 7, 2016

Entrepreneur and jewellery connoisseur Maxine Tuyau has put together her very first online marketplace. The shop is called ‘Maxine McQueen’ and features a curated selection of pieces she's amassed over years working in fashion and living in creative communities, both here and overseas.

“Every week I discover a new piece and a new designer I want to support,” she says. The hoops, studs, pendant earrings and other trinkets are all what she calls “premium wears” – each are made by jewellers she deems to be truly innovative and inspiring using only the highest quality materials and crafts(woman)ship. Likewise, she's also intended to give these talented makers a platform to share their creations.

The current designers include Tilly Jewellery, MLD, Kitsu, Anna Davern, Nylons, Common Muse and Sacreflux; as well as a few more. Together, each of the designers collections provide for an eclectic selection of jewels, that each differ distinctly from each other. Some are very casual and minimal, but are made in an unexpected shapes, others are huge pop cultural statement pieces. There’s also a lot of fabulous bright gold to choose from – gold looks good on everyone!
