Vacation-ready jewels for seaside adventures

Holidays are the perfect time to break out of the daily routine and spice up your outfit with some ocean-inspired jewellery. 

  • Award-winning New York-based designer Temple St.Clair recently published a book called The Golden Menagerie, which explores mankind’s relationship with animals through jewels. These flying fish earrings are set with tsavorites and cabochons of Royal blue moonstone and curl round the lobe, leaving a splash of diamonds in their wake ($5,200).
  • This mini pendant necklace from Aurélie Bidermann is a pretty interpretation of a perfectly spiralled nautilus shell. Encrusted with white diamonds, pink, blue and orange sapphires, tsavorites and amethysts, the detailed goldwork gives this necklace a refined artisanal feel (£2,325).
  • Yvonne Léon’s crab earring features a charming crustacean dangling from the ear. Held in place by a pincer and set all over with diamonds, this cute sea creature is sold as a single earring. Mix-and-match him with a simple diamond stud or another creature from Léon’s menagerie, which includes caterpillars and dragonflies (£2,125).
  • Monica Rich Kosann’s lockets hold secrets known only to the wearer, and her pendants tell equally endearing stories. Engraved with the words “there are no foreign lands, it is the traveler only who is foreign”, this Compass Charm necklace is the perfect jewel to accompany you on your travels to far-flung places ($5,150).  
  • From Lydia Courteille’s Deep Sea collection, which is inhabited by octopuses, sea horses, crabs and other sea creatures, these starfish earrings send tendrils of sea coral set with graduated blue sapphires up the ear. The colour of a tropical sea, the starfish and cabochon drops are carved from blue agate (£18,000).

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.

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
