SIHH 2014: introducing the most beautiful jewellery watches for women

In our latest video, Maria Doulton selects the most spectacular women's jewellery watches she encountered during five days spent at the SIHH 2014.

The Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie 2014 was held in Geneva this January and it is the place to see some of the most beautiful and extravagant watches of the year.

I spent five days at the Palexpo, where the event is held, and in my latest video you can see my selection of the most spectacular women's jewellery watches on show.

Piaget's Blooming Rose watch, with its clever twisting mechanism that allows two looks in one watch, immediately caught my attention.

Cartier excelled in creativity and craftsmanship this year and offered women a stunning array of jewellery watches that are, quite literally, both a jewel and a watch. Both the 'Crocodile' and 'Flamingo' watches feature detachable brooches. 

Roger Dubuis' Velvet collection offers a pink sapphire and diamond watch that is a masterful coming together of the gem-setter and watch-maker with high carat appeal.

And Van Cleef & Arpels chose all things celestial as the theme for its 'jewels that tell the time'. The Zodiac collection interprets, in precious materials and enamel, each of the star signs. They are all so different and interesting that it's a shame to have to chose just one.


Enjoy my video of the very best jewellery watches the SIHH 2014 had to offer.

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.
