For many, the cachet of buying on Bond Street is priceless, but it is far from the only place where one can pick up a unique piece of fine jewellery. Bentley & Skinner has its heritage in Bond Street, with the two family firms behind the company – Bentley & Co. and Skinner & Co. – established on New and Old Bond Streets in 1934 and 1880 respectively. A move to 55 Piccadilly means the company is only a stone’s throw from its old stomping ground, yet it is a world away from the modern- day boutiques found there. In fact, step into its Mayfair salon and you are immediately transported to a glamorous bygone era – a boutique filled with vintage treasures. By contrast, Lara Bohinc has made her home on Sloane Street, designing pieces that are visions of timeless modernity. She might be an innovator, but this jewellery-designing powerhouse respects the traditions of her craft and, thus, has more in common with Bentley & Skinner than first meets the eye.
