Pink Sapphire Seven Stone Band
Alice is one of the bravest women we've ever met. She is a documentary filmmaker and photographer who focuses on the environment, conflict zones and key issues such as FGM. You wouldn’t know that when you first meet her though because Alice is so humble about her work - aside from occasional snippets such as ‘last week in Oman’ and ‘on my last trip to Iraq’ it is easy to forget that she is on the frontline of recording, commenting and fighting for change in some of the most overlooked and deprived areas of the world.
As you might expect from Alice, she has chosen to use her Fenton Friends status to convey a message. Her stack of pink sapphire and ruby bands symbolise the anger she feels towards those who commit violence against women and act as a daily reminder to her of the cause that she is working towards.
We sourced Alice's pink sapphires from Thailand. Her ring was crafted using responsibly sourced diamonds and recycled 18K rose gold in Mumbai.
Blue Sapphire Halo Ring
Alice, often known by her nom de plume, Alice in Her Palace, finds inspiration for her role as a Vogue contributor from her home in Cambridgeshire where she has created a rural idyll full of fantastical fun and witty whimsy for her husband Tom and three children; Billy, Nancy and Felix.
We are inspired by Alice’s imaginative take on an English countryside paradise contrasted with a high fashion narrative and how she seamlessly integrates these seemingly contradictory worlds.
As you might expect for someone who excels at marrying the old and the new, Alice has chosen a classic blue sapphire centre stone and paired it with one of our more modern settings, the Art Deco inspired emerald cut Halo. Happily, her choice coincides perfectly with the arrival of her second son, Felix and we look forward to seeing it age alongside him for years to come.

Venetia is a rare thing in life - someone who actually sticks to their principles. When we spoke to her about Fenton Friends the conversation quickly became a wider grilling on where we stand on key ethical and environmental issues - in the best possible way. It’s heartening for us to see that the lure of sparkly things was less important to Venetia than the assurance that her stance as a front runner in all matters to do with waste, consumption and circularity would not be compromised by becoming one of our Fenton Friends. As you can see we were able to happily able to convince Venetia that we are aiming to be that even rarer thing - a brand that actually sticks to their principles too.
Venetia chose the Garland ring in oval cut rubies because she wanted a style that is versatile and comfortable whilst still giving an impact! Rubies are a great choice to offset against her pale skin and dark hair.

Sharmadean is one of most impressive people you will ever have the pleasure to meet. She is the founder of Wah nails, the cult Soho nail bar and of Beautystack, a beauty booking platform that is set for big things. When she’s not attending lectures at the Victoria & Albert museum or growing her team and business, Sharmadean can be found planning her next travel adventure with her adorable son, Roman.
Sharmadean’s birthstone is emerald and she knew she wanted that to be the centre of her Fenton ring. We shared a few styles and she immediately loved the yellow gold round Halo which felt ideal for her strong and individual style. Sharmadean is self-gifting her Fenton ring as the perfect way to celebrate the launch of Beautystack in November 2018.

You won’t be able to meet Pandora without wanting to become her best friend. She is irresistibly funny with a searing sense of social satire - think Oscar Wilde in a Doen dress. She is also is the mother of one adorable daughter, Zadie who already seems to have inherited Pandora's penchant for a chunky statement jewel.
Previously an editor at The Sunday Times Style, Pandora is a leading journalist for a slew of titles which have included GQ, Marie Claire, Vogue.co.uk and The Telegraph and is currently a Contributing Editor at Elle. As well as print journalism, Pandora runs the popular High Low podcast series with her friend and co-presenter Dolly Alderton.

Ali Alt Recanti
Yellow Sapphire Halo Ring
Ali and her husband Johnathan may have been made for each other. Ali is the brains behind the cooking blog Baliboosta and has been dubbed ‘the new Nigella’ by the Daily Mail. Johnathan founded the fast-growing restaurant chain Farmer J in 2016, and Ali came aboard in 2017, at his side at all times, heading up the Marketing & Brand team! They were married in 2017 on the Greek island of Sifnos and of course the highlight of the evening was the food - where they served up an 8 course Greek feast.
This ring marks an important Christmas for Ali and Johnathan as they embark on the next phase of their adventures together in what is guaranteed to be an exciting year ahead. Ali is not scared to forge her own path, in the midst of the clean eating trend, she advocates generous spreads and hearty meals. We love her unique perspective and feel that her emerald cut yellow sapphire is the perfect balance of classic and quirky that sums up Ali.
