If you didn't have the opportunity to visit the Biennale des Antiquaires that comes but once every two years to the Grand Palais in Paris, then fret not, as Harrods has laid on a London version of this most prestigiuous of jewellery events. 

The Fine Jewellery Room has been prepared to receive the most opulent jewels that celebrate the very best in precious gemstones, design and craftsmanship, created by the greatest names in luxury. Boucheron, Bulgari, Cartier, Chanel, Dior, Harry Winston, Piaget and Van Cleef & Arpels will be showing their latest high jewellery collections. 

Echoing Karl Lagerfeld's designs for the 26th Biennale des Antiquaires in Paris that only a few weeks ago opened its doors, Harrods Fine Jewellery room will become the London destination for those who love jewels. From the delicate butterflies of Boucheron to Bulgari's sensuous cabochons and Dior's explosive colours, this is the place to see the finest jewels the world has to offer.

Annalise Quest, GMM Fine Jewellery, Harrods comments: "The Fine Jewellery room at Harrods allows visitors to view the world's leading fine jewellery brands within one room, housing a huge variety of unique pieces and stunning collections to satisfy every taste. At Harrods we strive to offer our clients extraordinary experiences and with the permission of the Biennale des Antiquaries in Paris and through the participation of our fine jewellery partners we are delighted to be able to bring the magic and wonder of the Biennale to London, a feat never before achieved in the U.K. This significant collection celebrates the extraordinary talents of each design house and truly cements Harrods Fine jewellery room as a global luxury retail destination."

 

The Biennale des Antiquaries Exhibition at Harrods will be available to view within Harrods Fine Jewellery Room from the 1st - 14th October 2012.

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.
