The day of a proposal is one that will be remembered in detail, and at its heart is the engagement ring, a symbol of the feelings you have for each other and the commitment you will make.
The Great Exhibition held in the purpose built Crystal Palace in 1851 was a treasure trove of Victorian design. On show were Garrard’s most playful, technically complex creations. These qualities, as well as architectural details from the palace, have shaped the Enchanted Palace collection, capturing the spirit of the era.
Every jewel starts with a spark of inspiration, whether from a beautiful collection of stones or the details of a historic British garden. The idea takes shape on paper and in the lines of pen and the sweep of paint. As details evolve, the design becomes real, handcrafted by the House Studio and made into a suite of jewellery, a tiara, brooch or necklace.
Fanfare looks back to Garrard’s earliest years, when London’s theatre district was its home and opera masquerades were the height of fashion.
