The Queen B Collection by Leo with Love.
We are delighted to announce The Queen B jewellery collection from Leo With Love.
Leora Moreno is the creator and designer behind the brand.
The connection was made through Leora’s fortnightly visits to Queen B Luxury Nail Lounge, where we discovered her amazing talent for designing beautiful bespoke handmade jewellery.
With an array of clients from across the globe, Leora is recognised for her attention to detail and creativity in her necklaces, earrings and bracelets that she lovingly creates.
It was a chance conversation between Leora and our founder Peter Borg, that the idea of creating an exclusive collection of midi-rings came to light.
The two got together to discuss the project in detail and work began on creating this beautiful collection.
Leora has named every piece after Princesses from around the world which ties in wih the ethos of Leo with Love of female empowerment.
The philosophy behind the collection is all about redrawing lines and definitions.
Being a princess is much more than what we read in the fairytales and waiting for your prince to come, it’s about being the heroine of your own story.
The ultimate QUEEN!
About Leo with Love
Leo With Love is an all-encompassing jewellery brand inspired by empowered females, for empowered females.
It features minimalistic geometric shapes with eye-catching detail.
Leo with Love was started as means to take advantage of that one guaranteed chance in life to follow her dream and to show that others can follow theirs too.
Her jewellery is a metaphorical armour to make things happen today, a little boost to be bold and finish off your outfit!
Each piece in each collection is inspired by the incredible women who have made a positive impact on Leora.
She looks at the type of jewellery they wear, what their style is, and she couple’s that with the brand’s aesthetic.
The look on their face when they realise is second to none.
Knowing how happy and special she has made someone feel through this process is her main driver.
Sizing: Sizing will depend on where you want your ring to sit. For a regular fit ring, please provide your lettered ring size.
For midi ring sizes, and depending where you want the rings to sit, please note the standard sizes are as follows:
Small 17mm, Medium 18mm, Large 19mm, XL 20mm.
As items are made to order, please let us know if you require a smaller or larger size. Alternatively, you can come in store for a fitting.
|Ring Size (UK)||Circumference (mm)||Ring Size (UK)||Circumference (mm)|
A few notes to consider when checking your size:
Thicker rings will be tighter so if you choose a thicker style like Yukiko, you will likely need to go one size up.
The ideal time of day to measure is in the evening, when your fingers are largest. Avoid measuring your size when you’re hands are cold as fingers are at least half a size smaller.
Half sizes are available.
Should you require a total bespoke finish, please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Modern slavery is real. It’s in our communities and it affects tens of thousands of people in the UK, and millions worldwide.
It’s the abuse and exploitation of women, men and children for profit or gain.
It encompasses sexual exploitation, labour exploitation, criminal exploitation, domestic servitude, forced labour and servitude.
Our mission is to have a world without slavery.
It’s a big aim, but through collaboration, we believe it can be done.
By concentrating our efforts on three main areas – supporting, informing and influencing – we can start to tackle the issue in a way that really works.
Unseen runs the Modern Slavery Helpline, which helps victims to flee their exploitation.
Our safehouses support survivors, giving them a place to rest and recover.
Our outreach service then assists survivors in rebuilding their lives and reintegrating into the community.
Slavery in Nail Bars
In 2016, more beauty salons opened in the UK than any other independent business.
Budget nail bars have taken our high streets by storm.
Cheaper than traditional beauty salons, with no appointment required, they appeal to our insatiable desire for a bargain.
But this desire for cheap service can fuel modern slavery.
The current estimate is that there are 40 million slaves worldwide – and it is often unclear what practical steps an individual can take to avoid using “slave labour” in pursuing our beauty regimes.
It is suggested that in some budget and discount nail bars no background or training checks of the technicians are conducted.
Additionally, some nail bars use chemicals which, while not illegal in the UK, are not considered best practice.
Warnings of allergic reactions and permanent damage to nails are concerning – and that is before we consider the potential issues of slavery, trafficking and exploitation among the workforce delivering the treatments.
This is no surprise to Unseen, who run the Modern Slavery Helpline, as they are getting calls about this very issue on a regular basis.
Between October 2016 and October 2017, the Modern Slavery Helpline received reports of slavery in nail bars from at least 18 cities across the UK, indicating over 70 victims. 11 of which were children.
Crucial to tackling slavery in nail bars is making sure potential customers are aware of the issue.
Many customers don’t know the reasons why some salons are so cheap to visit.
That’s why Unseen ran the Let’s Nail It campaign last year, to highlight this insidious crime within the beauty industry.
It may cost more to visit a legitimate salon, but surely it’s worth doing your bit to eradicate slavery, reduce crime in your area – and support businesses who are trying to do things in the right way?
