Divine diamond watches for divas

When it comes to that ultimate accessory - the diamond jewellery watch - women have never had it so good.  

Audemars Piguet Diamond Fury watch

They say you can have it all, and when it comes to women’s watches, it seems that this could well be true. We are in the midst of a renaissance of the art of the jewellery watch, and watchmakers are bending over backwards to woo the most demanding of divas.

The Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie, held in Geneva every January, is where you will find the finest bejewelled timepieces. Here is our pick of the three most indulgent diamond watches, as spotted at the SIHH salon.

Audemars Piguet
Diamond Fury watch
£465,200

Packing a sparkling punch, the Diamond Fury cuff watch by Audemars Piguet is set with just under 5,000 diamonds and follows on from the success of the award-winning Diamond Punk watch of 2015. This rebel treads where few others dare and adds drama with its strong looks and daring architecture.

Van Cleef & Arpels
Ruby Secret watch
POA

In a more traditional style, the stunning Van Cleef & Arpels Ruby Secret watch is inspired by a timepiece made by the house in 1945. In the tradition of jewellery watches of that era, a secret dial is hidden in a sliding drawer under a magnificent bracelet set with 115 deep red Mozambique rubies, which weigh just over 151 carats. Each stone is masterfully set into a bracelet that took 1,500 hours of work.

Roger Dubuis
Black Velvet watch
£44,600

The unlikely combination of high-tech carbon - which is 10 times lighter than gold - and 66 electric-blue Paraiba tourmalines makes for a showstopper of a watch. Like an haute couture gown, Roger Dubuis makes an audacious move with the Black Velvet watch, which brings a modern edge to luxury horology.

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.
