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.
