    Bespoke ring made in memory of my mother.

    Monika made an exquisite ring for me, using some lace that belonged to my mother. This was a unique and special way to have my mother who passed away in 2019 with me on my wedding day. It will be a memento I carry with me for years to come, and I can't think of a more beautiful way to memorialize my mother. Working with Monika was a pleasure. She was communicative, flexible, and kind. I'd work with her again anytime!

    A Class Act

    My heirloom choker was among the best purchases I made for my wedding. You'll spend on so many things for your wedding that you'll never see or use again, but this piece will be in my family for generations to come. I commissioned a sterling silver choker made from lace from my mother's wedding dress and it exceeded all expectations. The product is absolutely luxe and Monika's professionalism is unparalleled!

    Monika Knutsson, Gilded Lace Collection's reply:

    Christie, thank you very much! I am so happy that you liked the silver lace choker. It was pure pleasure to work with you! I hope that your sister will wear it at her wedding too.:)

    My daughter's not even engaged, but when I found out about Monika's lace cuffs I loved the idea. I knew that if I didn't order it now, I would forget and then regret that I hadn't ordered it while it was fresh in my mind. At first I thought that she only worked with antique lace, but she happily turned a piece of the synthetic lace from my wedding dress into a stunning cuff. I am tucking it away until my daughter finds the man of her dreams. The cuff is stunning. Monika was very pleasant and easy to work with. I mailed the lace to her, she quoted my a price, I made a down payment, she made the cuff, I paid the rest and she mailed it to me. Easy as pie. I highly recommend her.
