Jones’ pieces, on the other bejeweled hand, have been expertly crafted in the likeness of foreign architectural structures from another time and distant lands. “Trinkets and artifacts that were brought back to the daughters by the Lords that went to fight in the Crusades,” sites Jones of their museum-worthy opulence.
But Burmese temple top cuff bracelets and regal sovereign rings aside, it is Jones’ upcoming collaboration with Lady Amanda Harlech that’s got the fashion pack in a fine frenzy. This partnership will be the first product line Harlech (Karl Lagerfeld’s right-hand woman at Chanel), has put her name to and will be exclusive to Net-a-porter when it launches this autumn.
The designer says it will be closer to fine jewelry than his own collection, so think a few less spikes and a few more black diamonds and opals a plenty. Fingers crossed, we’ll see the first samples on devotees Tallulah Harlech and business partner Alice Dellal in the coming months.

Dominic Jones may have gone traveling for his Fall/Winter 2012 collections inspiration, plundering majestic artifacts from far-and-away palaces of Arabian Kings and South East Asian temples, but his muses were breed a lot closer to home. “The look book is very English feeling with Jessica Brown-Findlay (Lady Sybil in Downtown Abbey) and Mary Charteris,” explains the London-based designer of his English roses. The design references may be rather exotic, but the shoot’s paler-than-pale complexions allude to a haunting, Victorian undertone.
