Masters of Modern Jewellery

Such a pleasure to be selected to take part in Joanna Hardy’s Masters of Modern Jewellery at Beetles + Huxley in Mayfair. Hardy has just published the dernier mot on one of Alice’s favourite stones, the Emerald by Thames & Hudson, as well as being the anchor of jewellery expertise for Antiques Roadshow and publishing a weekly column in the Telegraph’s new luxury guide. How did she manage to find the time to bring together a group that included Wendy Ramshaw, Shaun Leane, Lauren Adriana and Jacqueline Mina? Hardy’s passion for extraordinary jewels is infectious; Alice was particularly inspired by her breakfast talks on how to wear and recognise great jewels, focusing on greats such as Elizabeth Taylor and Maharani Sita Devi.
