Designers are set to reveal their colourful side at the Couture jewelry show in Las Vegas

With just over a month to go until Couture kicks off, we're loving the colourful gems that are being flown out to Vegas for the annual high-end jewelry show.


With just over a month to go until Couture kicks off in Las Vegas, we've been enjoying a preview of the pieces that will be on display when the jewelry show opens its doors on 30 May.

Taking place during 'jewelry market week', Couture is the go-to trade show for exclusive designs from some of the most exciting international brands. Held in the five-star Wynn resort, one of the glitziest hotels on the neon-lit strip, Couture has that exciting Vegas vibe that it would be impossible to recreate anywhere else in the world.

But atmosphere aside, it is the jewels that really sets Couture apart. This high-end business-to-business event is 100% design-focussed, which gives the brands - big and small - the opportunity to show off their best pieces. Whether you are an up-and-coming designer taking part for the first time in the Design Atelier or a globally famous brand such as Stephen Webster exhibiting in your own 5,000sq ft ballroom, this is your opportunity to fly your finest pieces out to Vegas for the week and show buyers and the international press the extent of your creativity.

In the run-up to the event, we will be showcasing some of the trends that you can expect to see at Couture 2013, plus we will be taking a look at last year's winners of the coveted Couture Design Awards. For now, though, here's a glimpse of just some of the vibrant jewels you're likely to encounter at Couture. Coloured gemstones are one of the most prevalent trends in high jewellery, and designers are embracing the almost infinite colour palette available to them. Feast your eyes on Stephen Webster's kaleidoscopic butterflies, Wendy Yue's darkly romantic roses and Mauro Felter's blindingly bright earrings - just a taster of the deliciously colourful offerings at this year's show.

The Jewellery Editor is for sale

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.
