La Tache Bobo

Inspired by the designer’s journey through Indochina, La Tache Bobo's Wanderlust collection features Burmese natural rubies and black gold. We catch up with the brains behind these beauties, jewelry designer Elena Gondorf. 

What are you listening to right now? Whatever I'm in the mood for... and I am terribly moody. There are French singers who give me inspiration, Serge Gainsbourg and Jacques Brel.

What's one piece of jewelry you never leave home without? My wedding ring and red thread bracelet I got as a blessing while visiting a shrine in Siem Reap.

If you had to choose, would it be gold or silver? Only and always black gold. Understated luxury.

What's the thing people would never guess about you? I have three beautiful children. My family is my nest, my love, my pride, my motto in life. I think with love all the mountains can be climbed.

"Priceless" to you means? "Blessed days of peace, when everything was beginning, when nothing really matters, when we did so many things that had come to seem marvelously, superlatively delightful. Days of living velvet." Journey to the end of the night - Louis Ferdinand Celine
