Sarah Herriot Jewellery

Yesterday I went to a silversmith fair, in Richmond, South London, to visit a friend's designer friend who was exhibiting there. His work is mostly commissioned - a great option if you are based in London or Surrey and want a bespoke engagement ring or a slightly cheaper version of a Bond Street ring. He is ever so charming; carries his papers around in a battered-up leather suitcase. I learned a lot about precious stones in the short time I was listening to him.

I don't really wear jewellery that much, except for brightly coloured beads, but I had a quick look round the other stalls (all 100 of them) and there were a few which caught my eye. First up, Sarah Herriot. Her large, sculptural rings remind me a little of knuckledusters, but I love the shapes.




I would be a total liability if I wore one of these large rings, but I love her range of pendants too. I didn't dare ask the price, as ignorance can be bliss, but if I find myself in a stronger financial position soon I definitely intend to stop by her stand again at the next fair.

I don't wear much jewelry either, but I'm swooning. I love how strong these pieces are.

if I were you I'd ask the price. They may not be as expensive as you may have imagine. Besides, if you know the price, you'd know how much money you'd need to save up for one. ;D
