Artist Marc Quinn known for his voluptous hyper-real, super-bright flower and that famous golden statue of Kate Moss doing yoga has looked to smaller objects with a collection of jewels for Selfridges. More wearable than a scuplture of his head made of his own frozen blood, another of his provocative oeuvres, these jewels are all made in white gold exclusively for this landmark London department store.

Quinn has made jewellery before but this is the first time that he has made pieces in white gold. Prices start from £7,000 for the jewels and the collection also includes white bronze sculptures as well as t-shirts and silk scarves. Watch out for more artists turning their hand to jewels as I find out more about how the art and jewellery world have a lot in common: often it's just a question of size.

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.
