Parisian designs at London Jewellery Week

Having never seen a piece by Parisian gemstone jewellery designer Isabelle Langlois before, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect as I sought her out on my first stop for London Jewellery Week (LJW).

Nestled in the centre of Piccadilly Arcade I found Horton Fine Jewellery where – in the shop windows – I immediately spotted some beautifully cut and arranged gemstones from the designer.
Langlois’s designs feature a mixture of colours and gems in dazzling and inventive styles.

Although many shops around the world and in the UK host Langlois’s designs, Horton is the only store in London doing so.

Horton Fine Jewellery owner Claudia Horton is delighted to have the designs on board. “We’ve sold Isabelle’s products for two or three years now,” she told me. “We hadn’t seen anything like it before. There’s a rather unique combination of stones in her pieces and she seems to be selling well in this store. She’s very passionate about her collection. When you hear her talking about the gemstones and individual pieces, she’s just so enthusiastic.”

According to her website, Langlois’s inspiration comes primarily from the colours around her such as the “glint from the feathers of tropical birds or that escapes from fleeting butterflies”. This is reflected in the array of hues in her collection.

Langlois takes various gemstones such as garnets, quartz, tourmalines, tanzanite, beryl, moonstone, prehnites, sapphire and ruby and delivers a variety of combinations and cuts.



If this first experience was anything to go by I’m already looking forward to other events I’ll be attending this week.
