I'm in Paris for Fashion Week, as Louis Vuitton is having its catwalk show, as well as sharing its newest collections of watches and jewellery.

Now at the heart of this collection is the famous monogram pattern, that has been found on Vuitton trunks since the late 19th century, the Blossom, is the floral of the shapes, and brings a new color and life to this collection.

What's new is the addition of grey mother of pearl, and exotic hard stones, tiger's eye and Carnelian. These inlays all have a pleasing plumpness about them, that adds to the complexity of their production but gives this lovely, glossy finish, and makes them so highly tactile. 

What I really like about these jewels, is that they're just so easy to wear, like these rings, which I just couldn't resist stacking.

Vuitton brings a certain charm and informality, even to these really high end Blossom watches. I really like how the mother of pearl shimmers, thanks to clever hand painting technique and a three tier system for carving petals. And this is what gives these watches a playfulness and charm, that is so very Vuitton.

I see this as a real blossoming, a new season and confidence to leave because season, and self-confidence, to Louis Vuitton's jewellery and watches.

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.
