  • Messika founder and designer Valerie’s fresh and fun take on diamonds has brought this classic gem to the attention of a new generation. This one-of-a-kind high jewellery collar is incredibly light and packed with diamonds.
  • Good things come in threes, and at Graff we were greeted with this trio of rings. Called the Helter Skelter, each gem has been cut specifically to fit the complex swirling design. 
  • At Bayco they saved the best till last: a 15.09-carat unheated Burmese ruby with an eight-figure price tag, re-cut from an estate jewel. You won’t see many like this in your lifetime.
  • Beirut-based designer Christina Debs debuted a new collection called Lace, with a fun mix-and-match element. Incredibly flexible and very easy to wear, our favourites were the rings, which you can wear whichever way you like.
  • Jacob & Co’s zesty Fancy Vivid 2.40-carat green diamond, with lime undertones, is so rare, this colourful creation retails for over $2 million.
  • Hanocks London vintage 1930 Art Deco Elizabeth Taylor jade and coral ring, at TEFAF 2017

The Jewellery Editor is for sale

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.

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
