Unique rings

From Cartier's prickly customer to Chanel's shooting stars, these original designs are among the most memorable we've seen all year.

  • One of my favourite new collections of 2016 was Cactus de Cartier – an homage to the succulent plant with a spiky reputation. This ring is the piece I love most, with emerald beads mimicking the barbed skin of the barrel cactus, topped with orange carnelian flowers (£70,500).
  • This Chaumet ring (£10,930) is a beautiful interpretation of the classic toi et moi design, which places two stones side by side but not touching. From the new Rondes de Nuit collection, Chaumet has set sparkling round brilliant diamonds in two white gold pears.
  • Celestial motifs were a favourite of Mademoiselle Chanel - "I wanted to cover women with constellations! Stars! Stars of all sizes," she once said - and the tradition continues with this dreamy ring (£7,000), which sends two diamond-studded stars shooting across the fingers. 
  • Stephen Webster launched Magnipheasant in 2014 with a collection of one-of-a-kind jewels that were so popular a diffusion line quickly followed. This stylish Magnipheasant ring (£9,300) transforms the plumage of a pheasant into a pair of sparkling diamond wings.
  • Just when I thought I’d seen every variation on the floral ring possible, along comes David Morriss with this Cherry Blossom ring (£30,000). Bouquets of blossoms stretch from knuckle to mid-finger, the diamonds set in rose gold accentuating the femininity of the design.

The Jewellery Editor is for sale

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.
