As well as the poshest cream teas in London, most beautifully packaged conserves and incredible people-watching opportunities, Fortnum & Mason has a new attraction: its brand new jewellery room, which opens today. Don’t expect drab old department-store style jewellery – the team have gone out of their way to make sure the offering will be a bit more edgy and unexpected. Expect lots of cool London-based designers like Lara Bohinc, Katie Hillier and Jessica de Lotz showcased alongside affordable, commercial collections by London favourites like Alex Monroe and Mawi. Add to that a dynamic range from established jewellers like Stephen Webster (who has curated the ‘Rock Vault’ exhibition, previously displayed at London Fashion Week), Jade Jagger and Slim Barrett and you have one of the most thrilling jewellery departments in London. Prices range from about £60 for a pair of earrings through to £6,000 but there are plenty of affordable, quirky offerings from £100-£300 so definitely great gift-hunting territory. Simply dazzling, darlinks. Maggie Davis
