Jewels from London Fashion Week

In the Showrooms at LFW, the capital’s up-and-coming designers showcased their latest fine jewellery creations. Here is my top five.

  • Crowned New Designer of the Year at the UK Jewellery Awards, an elaborate ear cuff from her father’s archives inspired Dalia Daou to create the Phoenix collection. The white opal in this ring is surrounded by artfully graduated sapphires and diamonds (£3,900).
  • Frances Wadsworth-Jones’ cute pearls with personalities were the hit of LFW. If a muso wearing chunky gold headphones is not your style, how about a nerd wearing Harry Potter-esque glasses or Felix the cat? (£1,145)
  • Lily Gabriella had on display the most valuable jewels of LFW. Adding to the Damali collection of one-of-a-kind pieces, she presented these hypnotic earrings, with drops set with a cabochon rubellite on one side and pavé black diamonds on the other (£20,000).
  • There is real delicacy in Shimell and Madden’s new Dusk ring. Best known for their intricate linear designs, in the centre is a purple sapphire tinged with red, encircled by two pearls and diamonds, chosen to mirror the colour of the sky just before nightfall (£3,690).
  • Astley Clarke introduced its new creative director, Dominic Jones, who presented his first three-part collection for the British jewellery brand. I was fascinated by the Phototaxis series – a study in the moths of Great Britain, transformed into a thoughtfully realised collection of jewels (£6,750).

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 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.
