what’s in a name? Well, that all depends on what name is on the table. And if it’s a Cartier, you’ll have everyone’s attention.

- Harry Winston
To move in a slightly different direction, we veer towards the elegant and timeless pieces by Harry Winston. This brand is the stuff of red carpets, movie premieres and is a firm favourite withHollywood actresses and the elite. While every piece they produce is awash with diamonds and precious gems, the tone is more classical and of another era. Their pieces will dazzle your family and friends, leaving them with memories of decadence and style.
Next on our list, we’re taking you to the designer who has truly put pearls on the jewellery map. Mikimoto is the vanguard jewellery designer who made the decision to take the finest pearls the world has to offer and produce stunning pieces of art. If you’re a stickler for the highest quality, Mikimoto only uses flawless pearls and eighteen-caret gold for their products. Wearing a Mikimoto is likely to knock the socks off everyone at your wedding.
To some people, size matters. And if you want something larger than life, then a Graff is for you. Graff is at the top of the designer jewellery league table when it comes to craft, design, and execution. No other brand can boast the resetting of precious gems that Graff has previously undertaken. Seriously – Graff is the only jewellery designer that can state working with a six-hundred-caret diamond. It really doesn’t get much bigger than a Graff when it comes to craftsmanship accolades.
This Italian giant of the jewellery design industry take diamond and gen encrustation to new levels of quality. A Buccellati often utilises a much denser and intricate use of smaller rare diamonds and stones to create visually arresting pieces. Buccellati proudly retains their Roman lineage in their designs, which sets them apart from their peers.
- David Yurman
in the timeline of the masters of jewellery designers, David Yurman is the baby of the group. This might explain their ability to stride the boundary of the classical designs and innovative contemporary creations. Unlike other designers, David Yurman likes to incorporate silver into their pieces, as well as gold and platinum. A favourite of high-flyers and celebrities, a David Yurman commands the same status as any other producer on our list.
the final entry on our list is the Parisian vanguards of the jewellery design world, Hermes. They’re notable for their combination of leather and enamel with the highest standard of gold and diamonds. Exclusivity is their calling card and owning a piece of Hermes becomes a personal relationship between the buyer and designer. The term bespoke is all too often overused, but not when it comes to a Hermes.
