Nicko McBrain: Hello, darling.

Maria Doulton: Hello. Tell me what jewellery you like.

Nicko McBrain: Oh, what jewellery I like. I like that jewellery that the girls wear, you know when you've got a little pair of skinny drawers on and they're covered up with jewellery.

Male Voice: I think she means what you're going to wear, Nick.

Nicko McBrain: No, she said...

Male Voice: Isn't that what you wear?

Nicko McBrain: No!

Male Voice: Talk about something that you wear.

Nicko McBrain: Well, I don't really wear an awful lot of jewellery. I have a gold chain with a crucifix.

Male Voice: You're lying...

Nicko McBrain: Oh, I do now and then. Of course, I have this, always. I have a Rolex watch, it's an Oyster Perpetual, "Oh," but it's not perpetual at the moment because the battery's gone on it, so it ain't working!

I usually like to wear bracelets occasionally.

Male Voice: Don't forget about the big, gold medallion.

Nicko McBrain: Oh, the big, gold medallion. Yes, I've got a big, gold medallion round here that says, "Who's your daddy?" written on it, and on the other side it says, "I'm not sure". 

Anyway, oh, God. What have you lot got me into here!

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.
