The exhibition 'Cartier: Style & History' currently showing at the Grand Palais in Paris is the perfect place in which to immerse yourself completely in the history of jewellery design and style spanning a century and a half.  Six hundred jewels trace the history of whims and fancies of the world's wealthiest men and women, and what delighted them in different eras.

And many of these glittering jewels, watches and precious items tell fascinating stories, often close to the heart. As the leading jeweller to royalty, celebrities and the wealthy, it is to Cartier they turned when they needed a special something to present to their beloved.

Take a closer look at the jewels of Elizabeth Taylor, Marlene Deitrich and Mrs Cole Porter, which were given as tokens of love. Each piece tells a story as passionate as the couple with whom it will forever be associated.

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.
