Best in show: the most exciting jewels at IJL London

We hopped on our bicycles to visit International Jewellery London, the UK’s premiere jewellery show, and here’s what got us excited. 

  • Awarded a Precious Metal Bursary in 2017 by The Goldsmiths’ Company, London-based Kristina Ferenchuk has created a collection of kinetic jewels that move with the wearer. These silver and gold Nebula double-finger rings, set with coloured gemstones, expand and contract thanks to lots of tiny rivets hidden underneath (POA).
  • Spotted at IJL in London, is award-winning, Birmingham-based jewellery designer Fei Liu's one-off  Poppy brooch. Nestled among the elegant carved pink opal petals is a glowing green jade cabochon, surrounded by stamens of yellow diamonds, with a single pear-shaped diamond set into the tip of the stem set with green tsavorites. (POA).
  • A pretty juxtaposition of rounded and angular gems, this Elle et Lui between-the-fingers ring by Switzerland’s Nadine Aysoy in 18-carat white gold contrasts a fresh green mint tourmaline with a creamy South Sea pearl, set with white round diamonds (£4,500).
  • Ex-fashion model Gurmit plays with volume in exciting new ways in her highly sculptural jewels. Made in London, this Squeezemoi ring, which is worn over two fingers, features a bulging carved amethyst, its undulating curves oozing out from the white gold and diamond star motif holding it in place (£10,500).
  • José María Goñi flew in from Chile to exhibit at IJL, bringing plenty of colour with him. Under his fine jewellery brand, JMG Designer, he created this detailed Flower necklace, set with a central 9.96-carat rubellite surrounded by rose-cut diamonds and old-cut yellow diamonds on a chain of green and pink tourmalines (£64,690).
  • De Beers Awakening Lotus necklace

  • Dior Cote Jardins gemstone high jewellery brooch
