Louis Vuitton goes tribal with the new Tribal Ornament collection inspired by the jewels of the Masai tribe of Kenya in East Africa. Louis Vuitton links all its jewellery collection to travel and adventure. It makes sense as this Parisian house started life making trunks for the intrepid voyagers of yore. Tribal is no exception and the collection visits East Africa and in particular the Masai tribe that wear colourful bead jewellery. Spessartites, multi-coloured sapphires, mandarine garnets and the odd diamond replace the humble bead and the maison's iconic flower and star shapes are woven into the designs. The first jewel from this collection was presented at the Biennale des Antiquaries last autumn. The high jewellery necklace used the same tribal motifs but within a more elaborate structure using very high value stones.( see the piece here). This initial high jewellery piece was the work of Vuitton's jewellery designer Lorenz Baümer. With its bold colour clashes and ethnic motifs, this is a look for style adventurers of the 21st century.

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.
