EXCEPTIONAL PIECES

Stand out from the crowd with these eye-catching jewellery creations

07 May, 2019

A beautiful piece of jewellery is so much more than an accessory. Jewellery tells a story of fine craftsmanship and exquisite attention to detail. It is sentimental, expressive and a cherished treasure to pass on to future generations. With a wide variety of designer and contemporary brands all under one roof, The Royal Exchange is home to some truly exceptional pieces.


WORLD OF WONDER

The whimsical Wonderland collection from luxury jewellery house Boodles is the ultimate showcase of skill and imagination. Released this June, the fifth Wonderland collective – an homage to the art of storytelling – is replete with one-off treasures such as the exquisite, multi-layered Just Beyond the Setting Sun bangle, which took more than 400 hours of craftsmanship to create.
