Theo Fennell’s Alias goes for silver: just in time for Christmas

Theo Fennell, the English gentleman of the jewellery industry, has introduced Alias,  his first range of silver jewellery. It is just in time for Christmas with more accessible prices. I had a chat with Theo about his inspiration and motivation.

Theo Fennell, the English gentleman of the jewellery industry, has introduced Alias,  his first range of silver jewellery. It is just in time for Christmas with more accessible prices. I had a chat with Theo about his inspiration and motivation. Theo Fennell's new Alias jewellery is the very first silver collection to come from the hands of this ever-so English and ever-so ironic British jeweller.  And Theo Fennell himself was there to tell me all about the new jewels at the launch in Harrods. All tousled quiff and witty quips Theo embarked on an animated shaggy dog tale of the narrative behind the jewels. To summarise: the Alias family is snowbound on an open road.  Each member of the family has a style of its own and the group grows as they meet other people snowbound. "It is not a statement of any one type but a way of expressing yourself," is Theo's conclusion on the Alias collection. The jewellery itself is classic Fennell with pudgy hearts, skulls with snakes writhing out of eye sockets and chunky keys on chains. Shakespeare's Yorick skull has been downsized to fit on a ring and one version has Hamlet's long lost friend kitted out in a WWII aviator cap and googles. Silver seems to suit Fennell's playful attitude and I can think of several people who would be tickled pink to find a Snake Eye pendant or Yorick ring in their Christmas stocking.

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.
