Most Exotic Designs of 2012

The best of exotic, brightly coloured jewels from 2012, which was a bumper year of creativity and exuberance from all corners of the globe.


I am compulsively drawn to jewels that, like a magic carpet, take me out of my reality and whisk me off to a faraway land. Naturally the stuff of fantasy and dreams, jewels that conjure up bazaars, starry nights in the desert or mystical creatures have a potent effect. Here is my selection of fabulously lavish jewels from 2012, with a hint of distant realms that took my breath away. Enjoy the intoxicating allure of some of the most beautiful jewels of the year.
