WINNER: River Mounts – Hoop earrings
The rapidly expanding diamond-set ring mount supplier River Mounts, based in Birmingham’s historic Jewellery Quarter, has added a new collection of desirable hoop earrings, with designs across a range of price points and styles, from everyday classics to the more extravagant, diamond-encrusted options.
The earrings are available in white, yellow and rose gold, with popular designs also coming in platinum. River Mounts, which provides its extensive product range to the UK and Europe, has made all of the new hoop earrings available to reserve for next-day delivery via its website.
The online platform promises easy-to-find sizing details and a live pricing function, and with impressive sell-through for River Mounts’ retailers it is easy to see why this collection came out on top, despite tough competition, in this year’s close-fought vote for Fine Jewellery Collection of the Year.
Fabergé – 1842 collection
The year referenced in the new 1842 Collection was the year of Fabergé’s founding, when Gustav Fabergé opened its first boutique in St Petersburg. Comprising 11 pieces, this collection is inspired by the gold jewellery the company began producing in the years before the first Imperial Egg. Each piece showcases Fabergé’s iconic egg-shaped hallmark, in 18k yellow gold.
Buglari – Divas’ dream
Bulgari has this year unveiled the enviable Divas’ Dream collection, adding subtle colour to everyday pieces. Set with diamonds and gemstones, the range takes inspiration from Roman history but injects a shot of contemporary elegance into the design. The house brought in K-pop star Lalisa of the band Blackpink to model the collection to great success earlier in the year.
Graff – Tribal
London’s Graff has brought to life its latest jewellery collection through the art of storytelling. The Tribal collection is about humans’ primal instinct to look to the stars for guidance, and includes sculptural motifs in its designs. Among the motifs are ‘New Dawn’, ‘Graff Gateway’ and ‘Night Moon’, the latter of which uses pavé diamonds to highlight the silhouette of a half-moon.
