The Jewellery Editor took the video team to record Maria's interview with Jade Jagger as she launches her new jewellery collection called Never Ending. And fortunately for us, Jade Jagger loves talking jewels, particularly with another jewellery fan like Maria.

In this video, Jade Jagger shares the inspirations behind this dramatic and very original collection that launches exclusively with 1stdibs.com. "It was very exciting to work together with 1stdibs to create something that I felt was especially for them," Jade tells us. "This collection is very much about the stones and seeing them in their true glory. They are really large pieces and you can see all of the world within the stone."

Jade, who started out as an artist and sculptor, is interested in the three- dimensional element of jewellery, evident in the outsized sapphire cuff, carved from one single piece of this precious stone.

"This collection is different from the usual way that we approach stones, where we're looking for the eye of the stone, the most clear point.  For me, it was about the entirety, the never-ending quality of the stone and following the shape of the crystalline structure.  So that's how I came to this architectural shape that also obviously follows the body and the form of your fingers," explains Jade.

"I feel that there is a sort of throwback to the 1970s in Never Ending and a bold, slightly bohemian feeling at the same time as being glamorous.  I was always very inspired by my mother (Bianca Jagger) and father (Mike Jagger) and the mentors around them in the 1970s and early 1980s, like Diana Von Furstenberg and Halston," says Jade.

Made to worn with confidence these jewels are for a woman who is looking for stones with soul and a story to tell.

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.
