Travellers can indulge in a spot of fine jewellery or watch shopping before jetting off thanks to the arrival of Louis Vuitton and Cartier at Terminal 5.

Conveniently located just beyond the security checks, the Cartier boutique opened its doors shortly before Christmas. While Cartier jewellery is sold through its Harrods concessions in Terminals 3 and 4, the Terminal 5 boutique is the maison's first standalone store at Heathrow airport. The 130sq m boutique is divided into three separate spaces for jewellery, watches and accessories. Like all Cartier stores worldwide, the bronze-coloured interior design is based on the so-called 'Moinard' concept developed by French architect Bruno Moinard.

Laurent Feniou, managing director of Cartier UK, said: "We are delighted to open a Cartier boutique in Heathrow Terminal 5 in order to cater to mobile consumers and to bring the boutique atmosphere and experience to a travel environment."

Louis Vuitton also opened its first European airport store at Heathrow's Terminal 5 last month. The 301sq m store sells Louis Vuitton jewellery and watches as well as a selection of the maison's leather goods, women's ready-to-wear, shoes, accessories and sunglasses. The shop's transparent exterior gives busy travellers an instant overview of its contents, while beige leathers, smoked teakwood and antique brass create an atmosphere of warmth and luxury. Louis Vuitton has also commissioned French artist Ange Leccia to make a film depicting the Mediterranean Sea that will be shown on a screen attached to the store's exterior.

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.
