Animal jewels we fell in love with in 2019

A cat, a hummingbird, a swan and a pair of swallows and snakes were amongst some of the most beautiful animal jewels of the year. 

  • Wladimir, the legendary cat that once freely pawed across the parquet floors of Boucheron is immortalised in this ring of diamonds with green tourmalines and a pink sapphire for his nose.
  • This bracelet by Lydia Courteille from the La Vie en Rose collection recalls the Greek myth of the seduction of Leda by Zeus who stole into her chamber in the guise of a swan. The bird’s wings set with pink sapphires wrap around the central morganite.
  • Gucci Hortus Deliciarum solitaire ring in yellow gold, set with a carved opal and diamonds.
  • Charlize Theron wrapped herself in 300 carats of Bulgari diamonds with a Serpenti necklace draped over another diamond necklace along with 25 carats of sapphire in her earrings.  Photo credit: Getty Images.
  • Les Ciels de Chaumet Envol earrings featuring two swallows set with pear-shaped diamonds, tsavorite garnets, diamonds and yellow and green sapphires in white and yellow gold.

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.
