Nada G MALAK rough diamond gold ring £5,750 (each)

With London Jewellery Week in full swing, it's the perfect time to explore different ways of wearing diamonds. Here is my selection from the Treasure jewellery show that offer alternative ways of showing off wearing these sparklers. A few minutes into my travels around Treasure and it is clear that a big rock set into the middle of a ring is not the only way to wear diamonds. Those creative  jewellers showing at Treasure (from Friday 10 to Sunday 12 June) offer interesting suggestions for diamond lovers. Tom Rucker's lighter-than-air, wonderous webs of platinum don't fail to fascinate. Tom laser-welds through a powerful microscope each and every one of the thousands of joints in these earrings. Enhanced by the sparkle of diamonds, these magnificent earrings are an outstanding example of excellence and dedication to contemporary craftsmanship. Jessica Poole's delicate trumpet-shaped rings curl around the finger like the tendril of a shy plant and open up into a shimmering of diamonds, each of which Jessica sets herself. The overall effect is discreet and highly individual and I can see this ring as an interesting alternative to the traditional engagement ring. I like the unusual combination of the three flat minimalist spirals with a sprinkling of diamonds that is the work of Daniela Dobesova. Each hand-made coil is flexible and bouncy, a testament to the work that has gone into this highly tactile jewel. Another interesting gold and diamond pendant is Joanna Dahdah's ball pendant in white gold set with diamonds. The shimmer of diamonds over the entire surface means that with every move you make, the pendant will be sending out your very own little diamond light-show. From the Lebanon, Nada Ghazal, goes for a chunky organic look with the Malak rings with 'icy'  diamonds. The feel is very much 'luxe au sauvage' which is a welcome change for the highly  polished, symmetric perfection of the classic diamond ring.

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.
