"Why does all I do become Byzantine?", Mademoiselle Chanel was often heard to exclaim. Her love of the Orient is behind this obsession that influenced her design, and Venice, was the gateway to the Orient for her. The new collection Secrets D'Orient is opulent and rich with Eastern colours.

"Why does all I do become Byzantine?", Mademoiselle Chanel was often heard to exclaim. Her love of the Orient is behind this obsession that influenced her design, and Venice, was the gateway to the Orient for her. The new collection Secrets D'Orient is opulent and rich with Eastern colours. Chanel move away from the all-white of diamonds and pearls and bring us the sensual, warm tones of the Orient with the Secrets D'Orient collection. Delicate strands of micro-pearls combine with pink sapphires and rubellites for a soft glow in the Byzance designs, and the blue waters of the canals come alive in a cascading Venitienne necklace of multi-coloured sapphires. Wine-red rubies and pink sapphires and green emeralds are reminiscent of light through stain-glass windows in the vivacious  Mosaique pieces. The Coupole ring suspends red rubellites, pink tourmalines, garnets, yellow citrines and micro-pearls in diamond-set domes inspired by Venice's churches . Shake the Persane cuff, a rich tapestry of diamonds, tsavorites, pink tourmalines and rubellites, and the Russian spirit of vivacity and opulence comes alive.

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.
