The show will offer an unprecedented opportunity to view the work of Britain's leading avant-garde jewellery house and debut eight bespoke creations that each represent a key motif from their collections.

The show features a finely crafted single diamond tusk earring as an ode to Leane's very first creation that was debuted on Alexander McQueen's catwalk in 1994. It will also present a vibrant gem set butterfly brooch displayed alongside an original Damien Hirst painting, an elaborate pair of feather hoop earrings with a Philip Treacy hat, and some stunning emerald earrings accompanied by a raw, natural emerald named the 'Medusa'. An artwork by Korean light sculptor Ahn Chulhyun will inspire a new aurora ring and an antique kimono from the archive of Daphne Guinness will be the impetus for a set of statement cherry blossom cuffs.

Featured artists: Shaun Leane, Su Blackwell, Ahn Chulhyun, Luke Dickinson, Damien Hirst, Philip Treacy
