THE GOLD STANDARD
Shaun Leane spent seven years training as a goldsmith in Hatton Garden before collaborating with his friend Alexander Mcqueen. Their partnership lasted 17 years, and more than 30 of Leane’s pieces appeared at the blockbuster Savage Beauty exhibition celebrating Mcqueen at the V&A in 2015. Leane’s new collection, Entwined Petal, is what he describes as a ‘gothic fairy tale take on floral jewellery’, with each piece available in white, yellow or rose gold. His sig ature is his ‘line’ and it is patently obvious in this range: sinuous yet elegant – and widely pastiched. Leane, however, remains the original, and the best. From £1,350, shaunleane.com.
