In London for the weekend? Here are the 5 top things to do for a jewellery lover.
1. Victoria & Albert Museum
The V&A has one of the finest and most comprehensive collections of jewellery in the world. Over 3,000 jewels tell the story of jewellery in Europe from ancient times to the present day. (View our article with the video of the V&A jewellery collections here.)

2. Solange Azagury Partridge
Our Favourite London-based jewellery designer! The formerly creative Director of Boucheron who now owns London’s most exciting, colourful and iconoclast brand, has taken over a whole building at number 5 Carlos Place, in Mayfair. The space of about 5,000 square feet house the designer’s boutique on the ground and first floors, a workshop, production facilities and the head office.

It is said that more important diamonds have passed through the House of Graff than any other jewellers in the world. Admire fantastic diamonds at his flagship store on 6-8 Bond Street, legendary street of London chic.
Located on South Molton Street, our London favourite purveyor of fine jewellery offers a stunning collection of handmade and designer pieces for women.
5. The Crown Jewels
Who could visit London without seeing the Crown Jewels that are housed in the Tower of London. Your visit to the Crown Jewels exhibition is included in the admission price to the Tower of London, and explores the role of the Tower in protecting the jewels that make up the key pieces used during coronations held throughout the history of the British Monarchy.
