Tomasz Donocik leaves behind the dark, gothic undertones that have defined many of his previous creation and offers us a burst of neon colour with his new Electric Night fine jewellery collection.

Inspired by 1980s science fiction - the cult classic Blade Runner - baguette-cut coloured gemstones mimic the movie's Art Deco-style futuristic skyscrapers. Rows of amethysts, tanzanites, iolites, sapphires, topaz, emeralds and diamonds create lightning bolts of colour framed in rose gold.

Bold cocktail rings sit alongside dazzling necklaces and - my favourite - interchangeable earring cuffs that can be turned into drop earrings for a decadent evening look punctuated with vivid coloured gemstones. Some of the pieces are also available in elegant combinations of rose gold and white diamonds, or white gold and emeralds. 

After graduating from the Royal College of Art, Polish-born Tomasz designed several men's jewellery collections before turning his attention to fine jewellery for women in 2011. Nicknamed the "dark prince", his decadent and romantic jewels with a rock 'n' roll edge have quickly earmarked him as one of London's most exciting talents. 

This month, Tomasz will once again be showcasing a selection of his designs at the British Fashion Council's Rock Vault exhibition, which runs alongside London Fashion Week. He has been a regular fixture at the show, curated by Stephen Webster, since its inception three years ago, but this season is likely to be his last. For the past two years Tomasz has also been part of the Rock Vault line-up at Couture Las Vegas, where he won two awards in 2013 for "Best New Designer" and "Diamonds over $20,000".  

With this latest collection there is no doubt that Tomasz Donocik will continue to make a name for himself on both sides of the Atlantic.

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.
