New video: amazing jewellery moments at Baselworld 2014

Maria Doulton gives a tantalising glimpse of her favourite jewels from Baselworld 2014 in our latest video, featuring Fabergé, Boucheron, Chopard and more.

Wendy Yue earrings with a black opal base featuring tsavorites, sapphires and rubies

It's always a tough call making a shortlist of those jewels that stood out at Baselworld 2014, but in my latest video I have done just that, choosing some of the pieces that impressed me most at the biggest watch and jewellery show in the world.

Boucheron has added to its Serpent collection - first launched in 1968 - with a Serpent Bohème bracelet adorned with an incredible amount of diamonds.

Yoko London's pearls were a treat, with pretty purple orbs that popped with colour amidst glimmering diamonds. To create a perfectly matched strand of graduated purple pearls is quite exceptional, and I think coloured pearls are going to be a big trend going forwards.

Known for her fantastical designs, Wendy Yue's black opal cuff bracelet and matching earrings, set with tsvaorites, sapphires and rubies, bring to mind a mysterious, dark forest.

Animals were a big theme at Baselworld 2014, and I loved Chopard's Snail bracelet in particular, while Fabergé experimented with brave combinations of colour in a delightfully clashing yet beautiful bracelet. And last but not least is Messika's ultra-feminine diamond necklace, which drapes on the skin like a luxurious silk scarf.
