The quintessential jewellery brand Garrard reimagines its Albemarle collection with bold new accents.
The House of Garrard is located in the heart of London’s Mayfair, from where every item begins its journey to creation. This time, the brand is launching a new twist on its much-loved Albemarle collection.
The iconic Windsor motif has been recreated by playing with size and proportion in graphic compositions. Alongside pendants, rings and earrings, the eight new Albemarle jewels include ear climbers, ear jackets and, for the first time in Garrard collections, a diamond ear cuff. The diamonds are displayed in contrasting angular formations, while the soft edges create an effortless and elegant feel. The pieces are designed with the concepts of adaptability and versatility in mind, showcasing Garrard’s expertise in crafting transformable jewels.
“The reimagined Windsor motif incorporates abstract clusters of round and geometric shapes, bringing a contemporary edge to the collection. The delicate, asymmetric silhouettes ensure the pieces are suited to every occasion. The creative process was driven by the desire to craft truly versatile jewellery,” says Sara Prentice, Garrard’s Creative Director. The Albemarle collection is inspired by the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland tiara – one of Her Majesty The Queen’s most recognisable pieces. The brand’s origins can be traced back to 1735, and in 1843 it was appointed the first official Crown Jeweller.
Ever since, Garrard has played a significant part in contributing to the British royal collection. From Queen Mary’s consort crown in 1911 to the engagement rings of both the Princess of Wales and the Duchess of Cambridge, Garrard has crafted some of the most famous jewels in history.
