Meet the Makers Launch Event on Sunday 10th February 1pm – 4pm.

The magic of romance wings its way to Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery where a sparkling array of exquisite tokens of love can be found in time for Valentines Day. The occasion? The Alternative Wedding Show, Yorkshire’s largest and most distinctive annual selling exhibition of contemporary bridal jewellery.

Now celebrating its twelfth year, The Alternative Wedding Show is renowned for featuring jewellery by cutting edge designers including jeweller to the stars Malcolm Morris, who has made beautiful original pieces for the Duchess of Gloucester, Joan Collins and Dawn French. Morris also created the tiaras worn by Gwyneth Paltrow in Shakespeare in Love and by Amy Adams in The Wedding Date. In 2002 he was commissioned to create a contemporary tiara to commemorate Her Majesty the Queen’s Golden Jubilee.

Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery has been based at Salts Mill (home to the world’s largest collection of Hockney artworks) since 1996. The gallery is renowned for showcasing the work of internationally celebrated jewellery designers alongside that of emerging talent, and also holds a strong reputation for its bespoke jewellery design service.

Quoted in The Times Luxx Magazine, Libbert says ‘Our clients are interested in jewels that push the boundaries. We think of ourselves as an antidote to the highstreet.’

An exhibition of every kind of bridal jewellery, The Alternative Wedding Show transforms Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery into a treasure trove of engagement and wedding rings, tiaras and fascinators, earrings, bracelets and necklaces all in a mouthwatering array of precious and semi-precious gems with a range of prices to suit every pocket.

A personalised design service is a strong feature of this year’s Alternative Wedding Show, and Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery is addressing the current trend for working heirloom jewels into contemporary designs by specially featuring jewellers who will work to commission and create bespoke pieces for the gallery’s clients.

Says Kath Libbert, ‘We bring together the skills and design talent of a select group of very prestigious jewellers who are happy to breathe new life into pieces that have perhaps been languishing, just waiting to be transformed into something fabulous. We offer an opportunity to work with these designers to create beautiful, one off bespoke pieces of jewellery.

As part of The Alternative Wedding Show 2013, Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery will hold an exclusive afternoon event on Sunday 10th Feb, featuring an opportunity to meet many of the jewellers taking part in the exhibition including Malcolm Morris. The event will offer a chance for customers to discuss their very own special commission over a glass of bubbly and a selection of delicious canapés. Please contact the gallery for an invitation.
