THE BEST OF BRITISH JEWELLERY: GOLDSMITHS’ FAIR LONDON
One of the joys of being a jewellery blogger is the journey of discovery and guess who just spent time at the Goldsmiths’ Fair in London, exploring the beautiful and unique creations of more than 130 jewellery designers! So come with me now as we journey through jewellery heaven and let me show you all the breathtaking new discoveries I have found at this year’s Goldsmiths’ Fair London. It’s an incredible show and it speaks to my belief in slow fashion, shopping independently and buying made-to-last pieces. This year I’ve chosen to showcase a curation of rings (with a few fine exceptions) for a number of reasons. Throughout history, the ring has always been an important symbol of power, status, love and loyalty. Rings are an expression of our personality and define who we are. So they need to complement the wearer and accentuate their style. From every handshake to every hand gesture, rings get noticed by everyone. My jewellery discoveries from this year’s Goldsmiths’ Fair include one-of-a-kind jewellery pieces and unique ideas and concepts that I’ve never seen before. It takes an artist’s vision to create a ring by hand and it is becoming a serious artform.
