I am very proud to present The Jewellery Editor's very first jewellery watch awards.

Now our team, has scoured the halls of Baselworld to find you the best in gem-set timepieces.

Our first Jewellery Editor award, for best jewellery watch, goes to Bulgari's sensational Serpenti Incantati.

In this watch, the bejewelled snake coils seductively around the dial and the serpent has sinuous movement along his articulated body that was inspired by a vintage Bulgari Art Deco brooch from the 1930s. This Serpenti shimmers in diamonds and pink rubellites.

The Jewellery Editor award for best use of color in a jewellery watch, goes to Dior's Grand Soir KaleiDiorscope.

The designers at Dior imagine Mr Christian Dior's Haute Couture embroidery through a kaliedescope, and transform them into these dazzling and mesmerizing mosaic dials of mother-of-pearl, opal, lapis lazuli, turquoise, malachite, onyx, sugilite and just about every precious coloured gemstone under the sun, all framed by a bezel set with geometrically cut stones.

Our third Jewellery Editor award, for best secret watch, goes to Chanel's Les Eternelles Morganite timepiece.

The iconic Matelassé, or quilted motif,  which Coco Chanel took from the world of horse racing, for her legendary handbags, emigrates to high jewellery and, this supple white gold cuff sit's like fabric on the wrist. Hiding behind the blushing pink, 43.66ct morganite, is a dial the secret watch.

So winners, please accept our heartfelt congratulations and, next year, we might even have a trophy.

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.
