The movers and shakers on day three of the Couture Show

Our last day in Las Vegas featured surrealism, vintage style and jewels with a sting in their tail. 

  • Lydia Courteille adds to her Sahara collection with these shoulder-dusting Scorpion earrings with a ruby sting in their tail. Inspired by her love of the jewellery designer René Lalique, Lydia has used plique-à-jour enamel to create the translucent body of this angry arachnid, creating a stained-glass window effect (€21,000). 
  • New York's Roule & Co. brings a luxe new look to the Wired collection with these bevelled Hex earrings, edged in white pavé diamonds. Filled with white and blue sapphires, captured in a white gold cage, the loose stones make a sweet tinkling sound when shaken ($12,500). 
  • A visit to artist-jeweller Paula Crevoshay is always an education. I love this beautiful chrysoprase brooch featuring an Art Nouveau-style lady with flowing locks. The gemstone is the craftsmanship of the great Canadian gemstone carver Thomas McPhee, who created it for Paula in 2007 (POA).
  • Selim Mouzannar continues a design theme that won him a trophy at last year's Couture Awards with the new Transparence collection. In this highly flexible bracelet, a network of gold bars spreads organically around the wrist, punctuated with rose-cut amethysts with a pretty lavender hue (POA). 
  • Surrealism is a speciality of Dutch artist jeweller Bibi van der Velden, who presented the new Sea Creatures collection at the Couture Show. In this choker, two hermit crab shells have been recreated using white quartz and mother-of-pearl overlaid with rock crystal, but in place of the resident crustaceans is the legs and torso of a man (POA). 
  • Nikos Koulis Universe diamond and clear enamel earrings as seen at Las Vegas Couture 2017

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.
