Of ‘I dos’ and Farewells

NO, I AM NOT GETTING MAR­RIED. I am, how­ever, bid­ding you, our dear read­ers, farewell for now. This will be my last edi­tion as ed­i­tor of Soli­taire and, nat­u­rally, putting this is­sue to­gether has been bit­ter­sweet for me. But as with all good things in life, my time at Soli­taire must also come to an end.

Ex­cit­ing times are ahead, how­ever, as the mag­a­zine will be tak­ing on a new direc­tion. And I hope you will still give it and the new team the same love and

On a hap­pier note — and more im­por­tantly — this is our bridal is­sue! And as al­ways, we cel­e­brate the mod­ern bride the same way we honour wedding tra­di­tions. A sym­bol of love and sta­tus, jew­ellery has al­ways played an im­por­tant role in wed­dings across the globe, and each cul­ture has its own in­ter­est­ing cus­tom. Take a look at our fea­ture on four global brides and their mean­ing­ful jew­ellery tra­di­tions.

From edgy yet still fem­i­nine ‘wedding pants’ and un­con­ven­tional en­gage­ment rings, to the clas­sic pearls and dainty bridal di­a­monds, this is­sue is all about style and design op­tions for the dis­cern­ing bride.

We also round up all the lat­est trends from some of the well-known in­dus­try ex­perts to keep you in the loop on what’s new and cov­etable for your wedding bridal jew­ellery!

Last but not least, if you need an even more ex­cit­ing in­spi­ra­tion, we bring you the dreami­est bridal en­sem­bles we’ve seen on the Cannes red car­pet. I mean, Priyanka Cho­pra in Chopard jew­ellery and a Ge­orges Hobeika wedding dress in the arms of her equally gor­geous new hus­band? Su­per mood.

Hope you en­joy my last is­sue! ‘Till we meet again. All the best,
