Mary Portas wearing designs by Monica Vinader

Retail guru wears ring and cuff by brand in new TV show

Shopping and retail guru Mary Portas has been spotted wearing jewellery by Monica Vinader in her new television series. 

Portas, who is known for her quirky, bold style, wore two pieces by Vinader, a chunky cocktail ring from a past collection, teamed with the Medina cuff. Both pieces appear to be set with labradorite, a grey stone known for its shimmering blue-green properties.


Portas’ new series, called Secret Shopper, tests the customer services of chain and branded retail stores in the UK. Her Shop! column in the Telegraph Magazine began in 2005 and focused on the layout, design, customer service, range and ‘shopability’ of many UK stores. The article has continued, leading to her first TV series, Mary Queen of Shops, which began in 2007 with a focus on turning around failing independent retailers. Its third series ran in 2010.
