One of film's most glamorous annual events, the first days of this year's 70th Venice International Film Festival saw celebrities dazzle with Jaeger-LeCoultre watches on their wrists. 

Founded in 1932, this prestigious event is the oldest international film festival in the world. Actors and actresses flock to the Venice Lido to see and be seen on the red carpet, often wearing a variety of show stopping accessories - and this year was no exception.

A loyal sponsor of the Venetian festival, a number of celebrities were spotted wearing watches from the Swiss watchmaker Jaeger-LeCoultre. Scottish actress and model Sophie Kennedy Clark accessorised her floor-length peach Stella McCartney gown with an elegant diamond Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Duetto Cordonne. Brazilian fashion model Natalia Borges wore a Jaeger-LeCoultre 101 watch, paired with a short Fausto Puglisi dress, while Iranian actress Golshifteh Farahani coordinated her cobalt blue gown with a matching lapis lazuli Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vous Celestial. 

For the third consecutive year, Jaeger-LeCoultre also renewed its commitment to the Emergency charity. Founded in 1994 to help civillian victims of war and poverty, since 2001 the association has been operating at Goderich, on the outskirts of Freetown, the capital of Sierra Leone. At the Emergency event, held on 29 August, celebrities including Natalia Borges and Eva Riccobono chose Jaeger-LeCoultre watches for their red carpet moment.

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.
