Most Original Contemporary Designs of 2012

The Jewellery Editor's top contemporary jewellery designs from 2012.

Hannah Martin's golden pyramid Comte ring sits surprisingly easy on the finger despite its three dimensional shape. The ring channels the spirit of the mysterious Comte de St Germaine, who according to Voltaire, was the man who knew everything.

I have perused all the jewels I have seen in the past year and decided that these are the most striking contemporary designs that look to the future, rather than the past, to transmit their message. Exciting, sometimes challenging and always highly original, I have put together this exceptional collection of jewels, which show us the way to a brave and beautiful new world.

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 with over 5 million views 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. 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 and help us grow our business to the next stage.
