Madonna chose to wear Van Cleef & Arpels jewellery to the London premiere of W.E. on the 12th January 2012. The actress and director opted for all white diamond pieces to complement her black outfit accesorised with edgy red racing-driver style gloves. She was also wearing a diamond-set pendant in the form of "WE" as a wink to the film's title. The title comes from the Duke and Duchess of Windsor's initials: Wallis and Edward and is typical of their love of coded language and messages.

The jewels she wore are Van Cleef & Arpels' 

- Bel Canto earrings in platinum and diamonds

- Fleurette bracelet in white gold and diamonds

- Flying Butterfly ring in white gold and diamonds

The Jewellery Editor is for sale

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.
