All change

Tony Bellingham, a master craftsman who has made jewellery and works of art for presidents and royal families, has defied life-threatening illness to recover his career and launch an exciting jewellery brand. One of the new collections is ‘The Flip Side’ – a range of rings, pendants, bracelets and earrings which provides reversal options. This tapered, yellow gold bracelet for example means it is now possible to wear emeralds in the morning, emeralds with diamonds in the afternoon and just diamonds for the evening by simply flipping the sections.

Each piece is handmade in 18ct white, rose or yellow gold and set with diamonds, rubies, sapphires or emeralds. The simple classic design allows the wearer to choose the combination instantly, each section easily flipping to achieve the desired look.
