The British Fashion Council recently announced the names of the talented jewellery designers who will take part in this year's Rock Vault initiative at London Fashion Week.

Alice Cicolini, Fernando Jorge, Hannah Martin, Imogen Belfield, Jo Hayes Ward, Melanie Georgacopoulos, Tomasz Donocik and Yunus & Eliza have all been selected to return for this year's Rock Vault, while Ornella Iannuzzi and Jacqueline Cullen will join them for the first time. The talented 10 will showcase their Spring/Sumer 2014 collections in the Designer Showrooms during London Fashion Week, held between 13-17 September 2013.

Developed by the British Fashion Council and chaired by renowned British jewellery designer Stephen Webster, Rock Vault was set up in February 2012 to celebrate Britain's most innovative jewellery talent based in London. The unique initiative aims to help up-and-coming brands gain exposure by providing a platform to showcase their designs, as well as business mentoring. Now in its fourth season, Rock Vault has quickly become an integral part of London Fashion Week, enabling the talented designers to show off their jewels to industry and press.

Each of the designers has their own distinctive style, which is what makes the event such an exciting one. A unique pair of bejewelled alligator cufflinks from Polish-born Tomasz Donocik will provide an element of quirky fun, while Yunus & Eliza's Shard ring pays homage to London's latest landmark. Brazilian born Fernando Jorge's fluid, organic jewels, set with specially cut Brazilian gemstones, are always a highlight, while Alice Cicolini will show off her Eastern-inspired designs.

The participating jewellers are selected by a talented panel of judges, including Carol Woolton, Jewellery Editor at Vogue UK, as well as representatives from Central Saint Martins, Harrods, Liberty, Matches and Grazia magazine.

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.
