Jacqueline Rabun

Vogue.com loves her, Madonna wears her jewellery and so can you.

Jacqueline Rabun has been designing jewellery for twenty years. Self-taught, Jacqueline was originally from California and has worked alongside Georg Jensen since 1999. She created her first collection in 2007 and now has a store in Belgravia, London.

This contemporary gold and silver jewellery has a fluid and sculptural form, which is reflected in both Jacqueline's collections for Georg Jensen and her own brand. She has a distinct approach to jewellery design, shapes are organic and geometric, reflecting elegance, modesty and calm.

Jacqueline's jewellery is worn by those in the know and is continually picked up in the press. Vogue.com used her jewellery for a cover shoot with Linda Evangelista whilst Madonna chose a piece by Rabun for her 50th birthday celebrations. Vogue loves Grace, which was created in 2007. This tantalising design is based on a solitaire diamond trapped, but not set, in a golden grid, exploring the ideas of freedom and captivity.

CONCEPTUAL COLLECTIONS

WE is a conceptual take on the couple. A wedding and engagement ring in one, where a diamond-set engagement ring slips into a specially crafted recess on the wedding band. Whilst Offspring celebrates the creation of life and is a symbolic rendering of mother and child. The organic lines of Mercy and unusual proportions are inspired by the glass jars of Louise Bourgeois' Room 8 and symbolise the flow of sand between the chambers of an hourglass.

Stunning images capture the calmness and tactile qualities of the collections.

Jacqueline Rabun also designs objets d'art. Look and Open is magnifying glass and letter opener taking on the form of an eye and eyebrow. The clean organic lines make this every day object yearn to be used.

BELGRAVIA BOUTIQUE

To see the collection, visit the showroom in Grosvenor Crescent Mews, Belgravia. The store is in a converted stables in a gated residential mews. Many of the building's original features are still in tact. The space was designed by Jacqueline in collaboration with Lyndsay Milne, using reclaimed and specially commissioned furniture. A jewel box style showroom, it's an intimate and meditative environment where the stalls create calm alcoves for looking at the collections.

The store is open Monday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Saturday, by appointment only.
