Vhernier, the Italian jewellery house known for it’s bravely minimalist and sculptural jewels marks the opening of it new boutique in the Dubai Mall with a special edition of Freccia jewels.

Inspired by the shimmering blue of the Dubai sea, the special edition Freccia features an azure gem composed of three layers of different stones assembled using the ‘trasparenza’ technique. A fine slice of black jade is topped with a Harlequin opal and then a carved bulging arrow-head shaped rock crystal. The ‘stone’ is seamlessly set into a sinuous and smooth rose gold base each of which forms the links of the bracelet or the components of the ring and earrings. For the cuff bracelet, a diamond-set arrow-head sits in a row between three blue ones that give way to solid gold links. The jewels are also available in a white gold version.

The effect is mesmerising and like a crystal ball, opens up a seemingly endless pool of reflections and ever-changing play of colours. Carlo Traglio, owner and director of Vhernier has a unique philosophy on jewels: “My jewels are not about opulence as we have already seen that, it’s been done. I prefer to see women dressed in a very elegant, very chic way with one little detail that makes a difference.”

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.
