Following Chanel's Haute Couture show at the Grand Palais in Paris, France's most esteemed fashion house opened the doors of its flagship boutique on Place Vendôme to show its new collection of high jewellery.

'Jardin de Camélias' reinterprets the iconic Chanel bloom in myriad ways, in the full spectrum of colour combinations, from bold black and white to ultra-girlish candy-hued oranges and pinks. The exquisite Camélia Solaire bracelet layers the warmest yellow gold leaves under a white diamond flower, interspersed with gleaming yellow diamonds, resulting in a piece that almost glows. But it was the Collier Camélia Ganse necklace that stole my heart, in classic Chanel black and white, and dripping with blooms in the most generous of lengths.

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.
