Chanel

Camellia necklace and bracelet

What? 18k white-gold and diamond camellias, which can be removed and worn as a brooch.

The story: The camellia was first given to Coco Chanel by her polo-playing lover, Boy Capel, to wear as a brooch because the unscented flower wouldn’t clash with her No.5 perfume.

Last word: Roses, schmoses. The camellia is the flower of romance now. 

Repossi - ear cuff, bracelet and ring (available in store). UK shipping.

Repossi

Blast necklace, ring and ear cuff

What? 18k black gold (a signature of the brand) and pear-shaped white diamonds.

The story: The collection was inspired by the handcrafted stacked jewellery seen in tribal and African cultures. Layers of iridescent sparkles? What’s not to love. 

Last word: Its name – Blast – is taken from the joyous feeling that came from the design process.

Last word: It brings a whole new meaning to the compliment: ‘You’re glowing’.

 

The Tassel necklace

What? 114ct cabochon-cut turquoise stones.

The story: Inspired by the Caribbean Sea, you can almost hear the sound of waves as the diamond-studded tassels swish together.

Last word: ASMR in jewellery form. Oh, and it’s the only one in the world.

 

The Bird on A Rock brooch

What? A striking 37.09ct oval-cut pink tourmaline.

The story: Tiffany & Co legend Jean Schlumberger first designed it in 1956 as the mounting of the ‘Tiffany Diamond’, one of the largest yellow diamonds ever discovered.

Last word: Fly my pretties, this is an iconic piece of Tiffany & Co history – arguably more iconic than the duck-egg-blue box…

Chopard - bracelet, necklace and watch. UK shipping.

Chopard

Happy Diamond watch

What? 18k rose-gold case, textured mother-of-pearl dial, 3.0700ct diamonds, leather strap.

The story: The first to showcase moving diamonds freed from their settings back in 1976 – designer Ronald Kurowski was inspired by the glistening droplets of a waterfall, seen while on a walk in the Black Forest, Germany.

Last word: Proof that you should always take the scenic route. 

Chaumet - bracelets and necklace (available in store). UK shipping.

Chaumet

Bee My Love necklace and bracelet

What? Y-shaped 18k rose gold and brilliant-cut diamonds.

The story: The collection celebrates the relationship between Napoleon I and founding jeweller, Marie-Etienne Nitot, who created bumblebee brooches to signify the emperor’s divine and eternal power.

Last word: Move over rubies, emeralds and sapphires: pastel gemstones are the future. 

Messika - bracelet and necklace (available in store). International shipping.

Messika

The Love Knot bracelet and necklace

What? Pear-cut diamonds in invisible overlap settings.

The story: The connections between the stones are imperceptible, giving the illusion that they’re floating in a line together.

Last word: “Look at my jewellery, I’m lethal,” says Beyoncé in the video for ‘APESH**T’, wearing a necklace by Messika. Enough said.

Bulgari - earrings, bracelet and necklace. EU shipping.

Bulgari

Serpenti bracelet, earrings and necklace

What? 18k white-gold with brilliant-cut diamonds.
