The Jewellery Editor heads to Couture Las Vegas to meet some of the stars of this captivating design-led jewellery show, including Coomi and Stephen Webster.

Holly Dyment's enamel rings incorporate skull, eye and lip motifs surrounded by an array of coloured stones

By Maria Doulton in Las Vegas

For the very first time The Jewellery Editor team landed in Vegas to find out first hand about the most talked-about jewellery show in the United States. And the Couture Show Las Vegas did not disappoint, with over 250 exhibitors showing their jewellery and watches to retailers from around the world.

Our latest video captures the excitement of this carefully curated trade show, which offers a wide range of creativity, quality and originality. I speak to CoomiStephen WebsterAlessio BoschiHolly Dyment and Lydia Courteille about their latest creations as these five highly individual jewellers offer an insight into the diversity and richness of this jewellery show.

Coomi tells me how she incorporates ancient artefacts into her jewels, which embody her interests in life, ranging from art history to spirituality. Meanwhile, Stephen Webster is heading in a high-tech direction. His new interchangeable ceramic bracelets for men, with cigar cutter-shaped clasps in precious metals and gemstones, are taking the brand into a new era of sophisticated men's jewellery.

Alessio Boschi presented his first collection of jewels under his own name and they are breathtaking in their creativity, coupled with an obsessive attention to detail. What's more, almost all larger necklaces can be taken apart to form bracelets, earrings and even hand-spanning jewels.

Holly Dyment's pop-tastic enamel rings and earrings are a splash of colour and fun that I couldn't resist. Dyment has made a set of rings for each day of the week, and Saturday is the one with the most diamonds.

Lydia Courteille is a long-time favourite of mine, and in her delightfully charming way she tells us about her new Animal Farm collection and its links to both George Orwell and Marie Antoinette. The result is rings in the form of a pig, turkey, duck, goat, mouse and cow.

So have a look at what caught my attention at the Couture Show Las Vegas, and experience the buzz of this American trade show that has captivated me.

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.
