Stylist Live – How To Spend Your Weekend And Money In London
Have you ever heard about the Stylist Live event in London?
Neither much had we, before we found the absolutely extraordinary fashion event at London Olympia last weekend. Actually, the weekend started on Friday, 10 November and lasted till November 12. We came to the event with a special goal in mind – to find designers and creators of refined original bespoke London jewellery at one place. And we succeeded. Today, we would like to take you for a walk amid semi-precious gems, gold, bronze and silver – everything in hard to meet elsewhere designs and shapes, away from the high street style and stores.
Out of a long list of exhibitors present at the event, we have selected those who, in our opinion, cater for all tastes and budgets. None of you would go empty-handed from the shopping spree, we can assure you. And it is crucial to know that many of the designers can only be met either by appointment or you need to know where their stockists in London are. So if you join the event next year, don’t miss an opportunity to buy the things you like from them.
Alexi London is striving to be the go-to London jewellery brand for new, unique and semi-precious pieces. It is for those of us who love sleek and minimal jewellery for every occasion. The price range of their carefully curated pieces is between £15 – £115, so everyone will find something for themselves.
Amulette London Jewellery
Every part of Amulette’s award-winning range is designed and created by a designer Lisa Harris. Lisa’s jewellery has been designed to reflect each wearer’s unique personality and style.

Emily Mortimer London Jewellery
Again a must-have of every jewellery-lover. It goes without saying that the jewellery is designed by a self-confessed jewellery addict, namely a designer Emily Mortimer. Her jewellery is unique, fabulous, luxurious and versetile. Her pieces are made in both 18ct yellow gold and sterling silver and are set with a multitude of different colour semi-precious gemstones and diamonds. The moment you see them, is the moment you want to have them. India and love-inspired items are all you want to have. If you want to buy her jewellery, you should follow the calendar of events on her website of her fanpage on Facebook and see where she is available, but she has got a studio in London so if you make an appointment by e-mail with her, we are sure you will have a chance to buy your coveted items from her personally.
Kasun London Jewellery
Absolutely gorgous and amazing. For bold and confident women who are not afraid to wear something that is just screaming. This definitely is high-end jewellery which as we have been told have won recognition among some celebrities like Ellie Goulding or Jourdan Dunn. It definitely is not a subtle type of jewellery which goes unnoticed. If you wear it, you make a statement and you will be seen. Each piece has been designed and individually crafted for its wearer, who Kasun says is someone ‘unafraid to push the boundaries and test the norm’.
Sally Lane London Jewellery
Last but not least, Sally Lane Jewellery. It was establiehed in 2015 for ambitious women who live their lives to the full and want their style and jewellery to reflect them. Once you wear the jewellery, you will fell confident and strong, yet elegant and feminine at the same time. Sally’s pieces are bold and women who wear her jewellery are not afraid of standing out of the crowd. The feminine traits in her pieces are to be a key to success rather than to emulate macho behaviours. Definitely jewellery for independent women.
And what does Sally say of her London jewellery?
It was important for me to create a collection that is classic, elegant and yet makes people look twice. Often jewellery that stands out is not appropriate for work and can look tacky…or it is in such a high price bracket that the investment is just too great to justify. The bold, elegant look is very much inspired by my love of both the French and Danish style; these designs will stand the test of time, and add a certain je ne sais quoi to any outfit. I love how it can subtly give away a mischievous character underneath an otherwise professional and serious veneer. I always get double glances when I’m wearing my jewellery, so if you don’t like being looked at, this isn’t for you!
Shall we meet next year in London?
The Stylist Live event is not just about jewellery though. You could meet there a wide array of British designers and craftsmen of all sorts and areas. Additionally, in between shopping, you could attend lots of lectures and workshops on fashion, style, femininity, business, wellness, success, diets, eating, blogging, creative writing and many more. It was a truly wonderful event for all fashion and not only fashion lovers. A well-spent time with equally minded people where you could learn new things, get to know inspirational people, new designers and new brands. We do recommend attending the event next year. It is an annual celebration of fashion and creativity; so do not miss it next year.
