Dressed to impress: stand-out high jewels of the year

Highly precious and one-of-a-kind, the jewels that impressed me in 2018 from Cartier to Bulgari and one very interesting independent designer from Asia. 

  • The unusual combination of a 17.12-carat morganite combined with two fiery opals and  pink sapphires create an exciting kaleidoscope of colour in Cartier’s Yoshino ring.
  • Each Cindy Chao Black Label Masterpiece is the result of over 10,000 hours of craftsmanship. This ruby Peony brooch won Cindy Chao an 'Outstanding Object' award at London's prestigious Masterpiece Fair 2018. 
  • ‘Precious Ruffles’ necklace from Bulgari Wild Pop high jewellery collection in pink gold with 11 Zambian drop-cut emeralds totalling 65.74 carats, amethysts turquoises and diamonds.
  • Bursting with brightness the Piaget Sunlight Blazing Sky brooch features a 15-carat rubellite surrounded by a halo of rubies, pink sapphires and the sparkle of diamonds.
  • Africa in jewels like you have never seen before in the Les Mondes de Chaumet Talismania ring with sugarloaf-cut rubellites, malachite and tsavorite garnet for an exciting new Africa-inspired style. 
  • Chaumet Memoire Assouline book cover
  • -
  • Chaumet African ant earrings Evans Mbugua

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.
