JewelEast-Old Spitalfields Market at London Jewellery Week 2011

Even rain couldn’t discourage us from venturing to JewelEast, one of the highlights of the 2011 London Jewellery Week. The stalls at the historic Old Spitalfields Market range from new jewellery designers to fabulous costumes to vintage jewellery. We arrived at 5pm on Sunday, dripping from the pouring rain to find a market still full of buzz…

Speaking of jewels, our favourite is still the Duchess of Cambridge Catherine Middleton’s dazzling 18-carat sapphire and and diamond ring that was once worn by Princess Diana. Chica, a lovely boutique next to the Benefit Boutique at Spitalfields Market, sell lookalikes of the original post-engagement dress, as well as summer versions of it.

Tarot card readings, massages…The allure of Spitalfields Market is definitely its eccentricity. You only need a few seconds to absorb its vibrant artistic flavour.

If all else fails…Keep Calm and Eat a Cupcake.
