Jewels from day two at Baselworld

Day two at Baselworld was a busy one, filled with hundreds of jewels. Here are just a few of the highlights.

  • Marco Bicego's bestselling Lunaria collection gets an ultra-feminine update with the addition of mother-of-pearl. It took Marco over a year to work out how to cut and polish the slivers of mother-of-pearl without damaging them (sautoir with gold and diamond pave £25,640; ring £2,810). 
  • We were all wondering what this icy, opaque stone, cut into a perfect sphere, was. The answer is frozen quartz, paired with a deep-pink pear-cut rubellite - a daring and unusual combination that could only be by de GRISOGONO. 
  • This was a first for The Jewellery Editor: a pearl shoulder jewel that drapes over the arm, held in place by a diamond brooch. The creator? Mikimoto, of course (POA). 
  • Greek jeweller Eugenie Niarchos, aka Venyx World, recently launched the Elementa collection. The piece that shone the brightest was this Aruna necklace, set with a luminous 8.26-carat Ethiopian opal visible through the intricate goldwork on the reverse of the pendant (£6,000).
  • A new-to-us brand we discovered at Baselworld, this Hokusai ring and earrings by French jewellery house Garaude were inspired by the famous artwork The Great Wave by the Japanese ukiyo-e artist (ring €1,750 ).

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.
