Our next Guest Selects is Kathryn Bishop, who works as an editor at The Future Laboratory, one of the world’s most renowned futures and trend consultancies, where she focuses on the luxury and retail sectors. A member of the Goldsmiths’ Craft & Design Council and a freeman of the Goldsmiths’ Company, Kathryn’s interest in jewellery began at the age of 17 when she landed a Saturday job at a family-run jewellers. Merging an English degree with her love for jewellery, Kathryn has held the role of editor at Professional Jeweller magazine and has written for various jewellery titles and platforms, alongside consulting for designers and brands.

We asked Kathryn Bishop to share her top four picks from the Dazzle Invites collection…

Emmeline Hastings Gold Murmur Ring - Dazzle Invites Lovedazzle

Gold Murmur Ring by Emmeline Hastings

With delicate petals of gold embedded into ice-like acrylic, this is the perfect cocktail ring for the festive season – who could resist?! Emmeline carefully carves each piece of acrylic, using precious metals such as gold and silver to bring something altogether organic, fleeting and glittering to each design.

Gold Murmur Ring – £1,690

Curve Dust Necklace by Sarah Lindsay

This necklace caught my eye in an instant – the colours and shapes alluding to druzy quartz but cleverly being crafted from acrylic dust, turning something many might consider a waste material into something desirable and attention-demanding. The best bit? Each design is entirely unique.

Curve Dust Necklace – £440

Catherine Tutt Gold Mutli band nugget ring - Dazzle Invites Lovedazzle

Multi Band Nugget Ring by Catherine Tutt

The hammered loops of gold in Catherine’s Nugget ring evoke something ancient, while the twinkling of the diamonds ensure it really is a piece to treasure. I can imagine how comfortable this will feel when worn – a talisman to run your fingers over as you think. Really beautiful!

Multi Nugget Ring – £1,995

Duo Earrings by Lucy Martin

I’ve long been a fan of Lucy’s work and I adore these earrings’ playful juxtaposition of asymmetry and cohesion. The stones’ contrast yet complement one another – cabochon and faceted, vibrant and soft in colour, while the use of oxidised silver also adds impact. Gorgeous!

Duo Earrings – £1,850
