Jade Jagger and Maria Doulton discuss Jade's newest Jaipur jewellery collection, which features traditional Indian enamelwork

By Maria Doulton in London

Jade Jagger has just opened a showroom on New Bond Street in London to showcase her growing collection of jewels. I went to the opening and had the chance to interview Jade and talk about her designs and inspirations. 

Though the showroom is new, Jade Jagger - the daughter of Mike and Bianca - has been making jewellery for 20 years. Jade came to jewellery through her painting when she decided to channel her love of colour and form into jewellery designs. Arrows is one of her best-known designs, along with Disco and Skullduggery. Her Wings collection for Garrard is still going strong, and she now has a growing business that includes stockists such as Bergdorf Goodman in New York, the website and in the UK.

Jade, who lives part of the year in Jaipur, has all her jewellery made in this Indian city famed for its gem-setters, enamellers and goldsmiths. The influence of India is evident in her jewels, in particular the Jaipur collection, which features traditional Indian enamelwork known as Kundan Meena, jangling beaded earrings and even Polki diamonds.  "I like Polki diamonds because they give you more splash for your money," says Jade of these typically Indian stones, which are in fact just a wafer-thin slice of diamond set atop a silver cone that creates the effect of depth.

But there are other jewels with very different styles. The Pope collection includes large rings with bright central stones, such as the chrysophrase and rough diamond ring I tried on, which reminded me of the copper-clad domes of the Paris Opera.

Coming soon is a new design called NeverEnding, which is chunky and geometrical and uses large, roughly carved stones. It launches in September exclusively on

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.
