To mark the opening of the showroom Lily has created seven new pieces to add to her Collectors Editions. Conceived as a constantly evolving offering of one-of-a-kind pieces, ‘Collectors Editions’, sees individual heirloom jewels embody the pinnacle of Lily’s vision, combined with technically challenging and complex craftsmanship.

The new pieces include the Tourmaline Deco Ring in rose gold, set with a 3.36ct pink tourmaline, diamonds and hand carved lapis lazuli and the Trilogy Ring in rose gold, diamonds, lapis lazuli and pink sapphire, both these rings showcase Lily Gabriella’s brand colours that are also the colour scheme of the showroom. Other pieces include the Lunar Earrings in white gold, with South Sea and Tahitian pearls, black and white diamonds, the Amethyst Optic Earrings in rose gold, amethyst and purple enamel, the Diamond Nova Earrings in white and rose gold and diamond, the Posy Earrings in rose gold, a 5.12ct pair of aquamarines, pink sapphires and diamonds and the Flora Earrings in rose gold, a 10.92ct pair of morganites and over 5cts of diamonds.

Lily has also created the Renegade Cuban Chain in titanium featuring an ombré effect, created using a meticulous gradient of white to brown diamonds and carefully anodizing the titanium to match.

The new boutique features a powder pink showroom which provides the perfect setting for the brand’s precious creations. The jewellery on display includes the designer’s highly sought after Spira range – a sculptural coil of gold available in a multitude of pavé gemset options.

Never one to conform to the norm, Lily’s creations are showcased on smooth pebble-like sculptures, which have been 3D printed in recycled and biodegradable materials and hand painted with eco-friendly paint in her signature brand colours – soft pink and deep blue.

Tactile midcentury furniture, designed by Eichholtz, sits on an oak parquet floor. The three large windows looking out onto Piccadilly flank back-lit, white alabaster walls, that encase two brass mirrors. The showroom is finished with a bespoke golden Blowfish ceiling lamp, designed and assembled by William Biggs.

The Lily Gabriella showroom also features a tranquil haven for the designer’s bespoke jewellery service, with a dedicated office located on the first floor.

Clients are invited, by appointment, to experience the personal journey of bespoke jewellery in an immersive space which features a deep blue and mesmerising 24K gold lapis lazuli inspired wall finish, as created by Jo Poulton Studio.
