Take a closer look at Bond Street's new jewellery department

"We wanted to create a beautiful jewellery box brimming with carefully chosen pieces that every modern woman would hope to find in her personal collection," says Fenwick Bond Street jewellery buyer Angela Basten. "Women today have many jewellery needs. From the every day like a personalised charm necklace or customised locket, to evening pieces such as the elaborate cocktail jewels - there are once-in-a-lifetime diamond pieces too. We were also keen to include lots of exclusive, unique labels that our customers couldn't find anywhere else."

Among the names to watch are Belgian designer Celine Daoust, New York label Ginette NY as well as handmade pieces from Sweet Pea, while exclusive to the store's new 'jewellery box' are fine jewellers Dean Harris, Phyne by Paige Novick and Nektar de Stagni. It is definitely worth a closer look.

Vernissage

Who could fail to be charmed by Italian designer Vernissage's all-out fantasy designs, exclusive to Bond Street. Each ornate gold-plated piece is festooned with crystals, semi-precious stones and enamel, transformed into birds, frogs and flowers to transport you on a journey of desire. And with prices starting at £150, it's a trip we can all afford. Images: Caroline Leeming

Bee Goddess

Specialising in symbolic jewellery, each piece by Bee Goddess is created around a mythological symbol or sacred meaning, like this 14carat gold and black diamond pendant, which has been crafted into a tree of life. There is a piece that is right for you in every collection, it is simply a matter of finding the perfect one.

Pendant necklace, £2,575

11FI

Bring your jewellery to life with Florentine label 11FI. You can choose from either a solid gold-plated, rose gold-plated or silver locket, as well as a glass-fronted design, have it engraved with your initials and a calligrapher will create a special personal message, tied with a pretty ribbon, to treasure inside. With prices starting from a very reasonable £149, they make the perfect gift.

 

Chains and charms

You can pick-and-mix your pendants with the playful new chain and charm section. Simply choose a chain (Ruebelle and Mirabelle have great new styles) and then layer the charms at will from elegant semi-precious stones, to your initials, wishbones, keys, coins and even pearls from must-have labels like Katie Mullally, Yuki Mitsuyasu, and Vernissage.

Jayce Wong

Exclusively created for Fenwick, these emerald and diamond earrings (£4,495) are in fact three pieces in one. With emerald studs, detachable winged details and a falling diamond setting they can go from work, to evening, to weekend. Created by London-based designer and Central Saint Martins' graduate Jayce Wong, each piece has a 1920s feel but with a modern twist.  

Paula Mendoza 

Bold, engaging and timeless, Colombian jewellery designer Paula Mendoza's creations are as captivating as the country where she was born. Expect, strong striking designs rich in heritage, such as these gold-plated bead pieces including a ring, open collar and arm cuff.

Celine Daoust

Fine jeweller Celine Daoust's specialism is the mystical properties of tourmalines which she captures in her 14 carat gold designs. You could lose yourself in the threads captured in the beautiful stones set in magnificent pave diamonds. With a careful eye, the Belgian designer chooses the intense and magnetic colours, which she showcases to celebrate their imperfections.

I Am Ileana Makri

Who could resist the cool, easy appeal of a pendant necklace or delicate bracelet by Greek designer Ileana Makri. Her diffusion line I Am offers the same attention to detail as her mainline, but expect raw-diamond panther pendants or evil-eye adorned bracelets. It's bohemian in spirit but still pared-back in its execution.

Marie-Helene de Taillac

New to the jewellery department is Parisian fine jeweller Marie-Helene de Taillac. Specialising in traditional craft techniques, she was one of the first designers to take the cut of a diamond and apply it to a semi-precious stone. Famed for her eye for colour, her stones are sourced from India's gemstone capital Jaipur to create beautiful one-off pieces.
