Forget about the rules!

Fashion month is on and as the models stroll down the runways in one european fashion capital after the other, a new mini trend is taking shape on the jewellery scene. What before was faux pas is now hotter than hot!

And what are we talking about?  We are talking about how you choose your earrings next season. Forget about the rules of the perfect pair. Mix it up and go for everything asymmetrical – literally. Not just an asymmetrical pair, no we are talking different earrings. Different in shapes, colours, lengths, materials – just go wild, its trendy!

Don’t believe us? Take it from the top notch designers of the moment then. We have proof from the catwalks.

Who do you want to be today?

The fashion crowd has moved on to Paris where the editors are busy snapping up next seasons must haves. However, we still can´t forget about the humorous award winning jewellery designer that we fell in love with at London fashion week.

London-based Frances Wadsworth Jones is part of Rock Vault, the prestigious initiative to ‘showcase and promote Britain’s, most innovative fine jewellery talent’, organised by the British Fashion Council and curated by Stephen Webster MBE.

But who is Frances?
Frances Wadsworth Jones founded her eponymous jewellery label in 2008 after graduating from London’s prestigious Royal College of Art. She designs with a playfully conceptual and quietly provocative style. Her unique approach blurs the boundaries between Design, Fashion, Art and Luxury – preciousness, humour and an exceptional eye for detail combining to define the award winning designer’s unpredictable yet unmistakable aesthetic.

She loves to turn expectations upside down and find comic relief in the serious world of fine jewellery.

We are in love with Frances contemporary interpretation of the classic pearl necklace.

Sleek and modern, the exclusive Chantecler boutique hosts sparkling diamonds and colorful gems to be combined in the most unexpected ways.

At Chantecler, there is little effort put into obtaining the reputation of an exclusive international brand. There is no vanity, no effort wasted in vain. Only good taste, outstanding craftsmanship and respect for tradition and the origins of the company.

Swarovski outshines all Christmas Trees

Zurich knows how to create a bright and sparkling Christmas spirit. At the center of the main train station, Hauptbahnhof, is a 50-foot-tall Christmas tree. This is no ordinary Tree. This Christmas Tree is sparkling brighter than any other with over 7,000 Swarovski crystal ornaments.

All sparkle-loving girls must be blown away by this glowing winter wonder spirit – at least we know we are.

Christmastree_Thejewelleryroom

Swarovski always shines bright especially during the holiday season, but this gimmick is a really cool way for the brand to demonstrate what it does best. Wonder what they are going to do with all the Crystals in January. Making them into earrings perhaps?

Frances Wandsworth Jones 

The heart of Frances Wadsworth Jones’ collections is playfully conceptual and quietly provocative. Humor and an exceptional eye for detail is reflected in her first fine collection as tiny golden ants threaten to dismantle the jewellery and run away with the glittering gems – brilliant.

The sparkle of Rare Argyle Pink Diamonds

Only about 1000 people in the world will ever get to see these Argyle Tender diamond 2016 stones and of course we were there, when the unique two-day exhibition of rare Argyle pink diamond jewellery was exhibited in Copenhagen.  We felt quite lucky to have seen and almost touched this years Argyle Pink Tender stones which this year happened to be quite exceptional, comprising a number of extraordinary signature pieces. The ones below were the five most significant diamonds, ranging from Fancy red to Fancy vivid purplish pink and of course the Hero of them all a 2.83 carat bluish Violet – the largest Violet ever found in the mine.
2016 Argyle Pink Diamonds Tender hero stones

As mentioned the US$20 million jewellery exhibition comprises a number of signature pieces of Argyle pink diamond jewellery including The Copenhagen Pink, an exceptional ring with a 1.41 carat Argyle Vivid Pink Tender stone, the largest pear-shaped Vivid Pink diamond from the Argyle mine in 31 years. Also included in the jewellery exhibition is The Argyle Blossom, a floral masterpiece that pays homage to past Argyle Pink Diamond Tenders incorporating five Tender diamonds totalling 3.22 carats.

Rio Tinto’s Argyle Pink Diamonds has partnered with premier Danish luxury jeweller Hartmann’s to showcase the finest in beauty and design from Australia and Denmark.
The Scandinavian market for Argyle pink diamonds has grown substantially over the past decade with a strong appreciation of the rarity, beauty and extraordinary colour palate of Australia’s most beautiful export.
The owner of Hartmanns jewellery Ulrik Hartmann – who is also a Select Atelier of Argyle Pink Diamonds – said “Argyle pink diamonds are ethically mined and crafted with an unbroken chain of custody from a remote corner of Australia and are a source of fascination for European markets. We have seen and continue to see, strong demand for these truly rare gems.”

The Argyle pink diamond jewellery collections coincides with the 2016 Argyle Pink Diamonds Tender which has been launched during a world exclusive preview in Copenhagen before the spectacular diamond collection begins a global invitation-only viewing tour.

The 2016 Argyle Pink Diamonds Tender includes 63 pink, red and violet diamonds and represents the finest of a year’s production from Rio Tinto’s Argyle diamond mine in Western Australia. The 2016 Tender, named the “Chroma Collection” because of its potency of colour, comprises 57 pink diamonds, two violet diamonds and four red diamonds and weighing a total of 58.24 carats.

Favorite Stockholm jewellery boutique

If you’re ever in Stockholm remember to visit one of the coolest jewellery boutiques in the City. The store is intriguing and mysterious painted in dark colours, with green velvet curtains, and artistic decor on the walls.  It’s nothing like a traditional jewellery boutique.

TheJewelleryryoom_mariaNilsdottirentrance

Maria Nilsdottir is the creative mind behind it all. The talent behind everything from the innovative and charasmatic jewellery to the beautifylly decorated space, and the pedistal in the middle of the room, where her workspacke is. This is where the designs are brought to life.
Maria Nilsdottir, educated from Central Saint Martin in London opened her store in the center of Stockholm a few years ago, mainly because she didn’t feel that her jewellery fitted into the traditional jewellery stores.
The hip store only carries her own jewellery line, and there is plenty to see and try on, as she carries her fine jewellery collection as well as a more daring silver collection.

We were absolutely dazzled by Maria Nilsdottirs universe and this is definetly a store we will return to whenever we’re in Stockholm.
