If you have been hunting the high street as well as online boutiques for some avant-garde, statement jewellery only to feel disappointment, then Kabiri is the answer to all your problems.

The jewellery chain not only has a thriving online boutique but also several flagship stores across London, on Marylebone High Street, Chelsea and Kings Road. Starting in 2004 by entrepreneur Nathalie Kabiri, the vision was to showcase the most inspiring and original jewellery by designers in a curated environment, whilst giving emphasis to fashion trends and a strong sense of direction to the overall collection. The chain works in tandem with talented designers across the world, giving them a vibrant platform to showcase their jewellery instead of depending on craft galleries.

Their designer’s list includes names such as Bjorg, Claire English, Arik Kastan, Imogen Belfield, to name a few. Kabiri also boasts of being a pit-stop for all kind of styles. Whether you are searching for awe-inspiring costume jewellery, indulgent fashion jewellery, decadent fine jewellery or heart stopping engagement and wedding jewellery, Kabiri tends to all your individual needs.

Kabiri’s Sring/Summer 2012 designs comprise themes like tribal craft, 1950s Americana, Oceans 12 and Pretty Pastels. Our favourite picks are this colourful, quirky high fashion statement jewellery by London based designer and stylist Johanne Mills. With a characteristic Americana feel to it, the Rainbow earrings for £205 can be the perfect companion for the spring season. We also love the turquoise tubular bracelet of silk rope wrapped with rose gold plated chain, diamond hammered ends and double-plated yellow-gold cross charm detail by designer Maria Francesca Pepe (£170).
