When KC Concepcion began working on her fine jewelry line, Avec Moi by Kristina, the budding private jewelry designer hoped her pieces would become part of her client’s life stories.
KC said, “Everything has a story. I’m wearing my grandmother’s rings, it feels like she’s with me… That’s why I called it Avec Moi because avec moi in French means ‘with me.’
“So, if you have your own piece, you will have your own stories to tell."
Judy Ann Santos and daughter Yohan were among the special guests who attended the private launch of KC’s fine jewelry line last March 20, at the Manila House Private Club in Bonifacio Global City.
The Kapamilya actress was one of the first to buy some of KC's bespoke pieces, and gave a pair to her daughter.
Yohan's rose gold earrings have green sapphire stones and white diamonds.
Judy Ann got a heart-shaped pendant necklace from the collection.
According to KC, it was the most valuable piece in her line.
She wrote on her Instagram post, “My heart is full as my big sis @officialjuday takes with her the most valuable piece in the first @alwaysavecmoi collection: The ‘Phoenix Rose’ Necklace.”
