Jewels with a strong military inspiration make their debut at the oldest jewellery house in the world as Garrard's Star and Garter collection goes out on parade. Garrard the house that is synonymous with British jewels and of course military medals and regalia brings the two together in the new Star and Garter collection designed by Creative Director Stephen Webster. This large collection with over 40 pieces of jewellery is inspired by bold, statement regalia and bristles with military symbols and livery that is set to pull rank. And Garrard has a weighty history when it comes to medals. In 1867 Garrard supplied the Collar and Badge of the Most Noble Order of the Garter that was presented to Emperor Alexander II of Russia by Queen Victoria and in 1911 the Garter insignia was made for HM Queen Mary, and in 1947 the bejewelled Garter Star was made for HM King George VI. Based on the theme of these medals, including the rich colour of the ribbons and embroidery of the uniforms, the central motif of the collection is the military star as seen in the Star and Garter cufflinks. This traditional men's accessory emblazoned with blue sapphires and white diamonds reflects the style of military medals. The clever hand and wit of Stephen Webster is evident in the white gold and diamond cufflinks with a blue topaz at the centre: the was carefully selected in an unusual deep sea blue, in a nod to the naval artillery. The pride and grandeur associated with the military beam out from this collection that will have you walking with a ram-rod straight back and off polishing your shoes every five minutes. About turn!

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.
