Licence to thrill

High-octane glamour at the Spectre premiere as Bond girls and royalty sparkle in Chopard, Omega and Harry Winston diamonds.

Bond girls Léa Seydoux and Monica Bellucci wearing Chopard

At the Spectre premiere at the Royal Albert Hall last night in London, Daniel Craig took to the red carpet flanked by his leading ladies. Naomie Harris, who plays Moneypenny, chose a delicate 1955 Omega secret jewellery watch set with 110 diamonds and featuring a dial concealed under a further cluster of diamonds.

Actress Naomie Harris, who plays Moneypenny in the new Spectre film, chose a delicate 1955 Omega secret jewellery watch set with 110 diamonds and featuring a dial concealed under a further cluster of diamonds as part of her red carpet jewellery. 

The elegant Omega watch stood out against her simple Stella McCartney strapless orange dress - an appropriate choice given Omega’s participation in Bond’s adventures. Harris added even more sparkle to the night with more than 40cts of Harry Winston diamond jewellery, including a 19.61ct Premiere diamond riviere necklace along with 5.03ct ear studs and a 3.06ct diamond Loop ring.

Monica Bellucci and Léa Seydoux looked appropriately glamorous draped in Chopard jewels. Bellucci, who plays Lucia Sciarra - widow of the Spectre agent killed by Bond in the thrilling opening scene set in Mexico City - chose long drop triangle-cut diamond earrings to enhance her otherwise bare décolletage. On her left hand she wore two stunning Chopard rings: one with a 15.8ct sapphire and the other a 14.8ct cabochon emerald. The precious stones were a perfect match to her emerald velvet Ralph & Russo flatteringly draped dress.

Léa Seydoux, who won the Trophée Chopard at Cannes in 2009, chose yellow and white diamond Chopard earrings to go with her shimmering, backless sequin Prada dress. On her right hand she wore a 13ct round diamond ring.

The Duchess of Cambridge added a further wave of excitement when she stepped out in a powder blue Jenny Packham gown, with blue topaz and diamond earrings by London jeweller Robinson Pelham. The diamond earrings she wore at her wedding were also by Robinson Pelham.

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.
