A trusted favourite among the A-listers, Lorraine Schwartz's flamboyant jewellery designs are a mainstay on the world's most acclaimed red carpets. Some of Hollywood's most memorable pieces can be attributed to the prolific designer, from Angelina Jolie's ground-breaking 115-carat emerald earrings at the 2009 Oscars to Kim Kardashian's cushion-cut diamond engagement ring. Notably, her many celebrity fans aren't paid to wear her jewellery - as has become a red carpet standard; they are simply #LorraineGirls.
The secret to her success? She puts it down to having a woman's instinct for her customers' needs: "There are a lot of diamond dealers who don't understand what women want. They go for the deeper pieces. No, women want chic. Women want to look at the stones on their finger and feel like, whatever their size, they have a beauty."
This May, a unique pop-up in Fine Jewellery invites you to join the illustrious #LorraineGirl gang. There you'll find an array of exquisite collections on show — exclusive to Harrods in the UK, and including the emerald earrings worn by Angelina Jolie — as well as images of the women who ceaselessly inspire the designer.
Find it in Fine Watches & Jewellery, Ground Floor until 30th June.
