Mccaul Goldsmiths return to the Goldsmiths Fair with hand carved contemporary rings set with unique gemstones

Brothers David and Barry McCaul return to the Goldsmiths’ Fair this year showcasing their latest Carve cocktail rings, which dazzle with vibrant gemstones.

London-based McCaul Goldsmiths will be showcasing their unique hand-carved rings at the prestigious Goldsmiths' Fair this autumn.  It is the seventh year that McCaul has been selected to take part in the jewellery fair, held at the opulent Goldsmiths' Hall in the capital.

Brothers David and Barry McCaul create beautiful bespoke jewels, all of which are designed and made at their atelier in Exmouth Market, Clerkenwell. Their latest designs are the Carve cocktail rings, crafted in gold and set with the most magnificent, one-of-a-kind gemstones in vibrant colours.

Barry McCaul explains that, as classically trained goldsmiths, the brothers' designs aim to explore both line and form, taking the unique properties of the metals as their starting point. Their jewels follow the contours of the wearer's body, with rings gently curling themselves around a finger and earrings that mirror the shape of the jawline. 

Using a combination of traditional and modern goldsmithing techniques, the McCaul brothers create jewels that feel light and airy but are in fact deceptively sturdy. In the London workshop, where they have been based for the past five years, century-old equipment sits alongside cutting-edge technology.

Speaking about the Carve collection, Barry says: "[It] was an exploration of a new technique for us - each piece was hand-carved from wax but has a similar vocabulary: asymmetry, fluid lines and blurred lines between the ring and the setting."

He adds that the new ring designs have an organic feel, emphasised by juxtaposing large symmetric gemstones with sweeping, fluid lines of gold. "They are not everyday rings but rather unapologetically extravagant luxurious treasures."

McCaul Goldsmiths jewellery will be on display during the second week of the Goldsmiths' Fair, from 30 September - 5 October.

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.
