Baselworld is the place to see some of the most amazing jewels and watches you are likely to ever set eyes on. Come and see what caught my attention while I was there this April in our second video dedicted some very special jewellery and timepieces.

I visited de GRISOGONO - celebrating its 20th anniversary this year - which had some suitably spectacular jewels. Fabergé showed a colourful selection of enamel and gem-set eggs as well as jewels that evoke the splendour of turn-of-the-century Imperial Russia. Mattia Cielo is another favourite of mine. This Italian house used clever micro-mechanics to create jewels that tremble, twist and even transform into completely different forms. And Bayco from New York treated us to the show-stopping Imperial Emerald, which weighs 206ct and is completely unenhanced.

As expected, Mikimoto presented amazing pearls both in the form of one-off jewels that quite literally drape across the body as well as exciting combinations such as baroque pearls and water opals, as well as the shimmering beauty of thick ropes of golden coloured pearls. 

Marking 15 years in the business, Stephen Webster revisited classic designs such as Fly by Night and Jules Verne, and managed to make them even more precious, delicate and edgy, a style of which he is a master. Louis Vuitton used the opportunity to present the new Tambour Secrete watch for women as well as a ladies' tourbillon. For men there were more America's Cup chronographs and elegant Tambour models.

The Jewellery Editor is for sale

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
