Celebrities decked out in fabulous jewels - and that includes the men - raised over £5 million for the Elton John Aids Foundation at the White Tie and Tiara ball in association with Chopard. In just 40 minutes, celebrities and other guests at the White Tie and Tiara Ball 2011 in association with Chopard raised over £5 million for Sir Elton John's Aids charity. The ball was held in the grounds of Sir John's 'Woodside' estate in Windsor and the 690 guests sipped champagne and 'Kryptonite' cocktails on the rolling lawns, dotted with classical statues before entering the marquee decked out in the the theme of the evening: "2011: A Space Odyssey" for dinner and entertainment. This is the place to wear your jewels and there was no holding back - and even the men got a look in at this sparkling extravaganza of fashion, jewels and music. Sir Elton John, who is known for his extravagant tastes and love of jewellery, wore a 260 carat Chopard  emerald and diamond necklace with his tuxedo. The large drop-shape carved emerald hanging from a long diamond-set chain is clearly visible against his white shirt. Such a dashing display of a manecklace - and yes I just made up that word -  is on a par with any self-respecting maharaja.  David Furnish, at his side, wore a large diamond ring on his right pinkie finger. So there we are, it's not just the girls who flaunted their rocks at this ball. Elizabeth Hurley wore Chopard diamond chandelier earrings and a five-row diamond bracelet. Anne Hathaway chose a very pretty pair oflong dangling Chopard pink sapphire briolette earrings and a white, yellow and pink diamond line bracelet. Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice were both there too with their mama, Sarah Ferguson. Can you imagine all three of them on the dance floor when Elton John and George Michael sang "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me"? And if that wasn't enough to make one hell of a night, Lady Gaga performed to round off what sounds like a right royal knees up - and all for a good cause. God bless Elton John.

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.
