If you love jewellery, you will love London. The prime jewellery street is of course Bond Street, but it has branched out, and nearby Mount Street is increasingly a magnet for those seeking out a chic little boutique or sophisticated watch brand. Burlington Arcade offers a cornucopia of vintage jewellery and watches, while Notting Hill is known for its trademark boho-chic approach to adornment. And there’s more, which over time you’ll discover while roaming around London. To mangle Samuel Johnson’s famous line: “When a girl is tired of London’s jewellery scene, she is tired of life.”
