A few of my
Favourite things
Yasmin Lambert, Creative Director of Jonathan Lambert Bespoke Jewellers in Lavenham
  Yasmin Lambert is Creative Director of Jonathan Lambert, the Bespoke Jewellers in Lavenham. Following her degree from Central St Martins she went on to design jewellery for Garrard, the Crown Jewellers. She joined her husband in the family business 10 years ago and they have just been nominated in the prestigious UK Jewellery Awards for Bespoke Jewellery Retailer of the year.
Favourite gemstone
Pearls. They never cease to amaze me with their beauty, and it happens to be my birthstone.
My own favourite piece of jewellery
I love vintage jewellery - there is something romantic about the history in a piece and my favourite item of jewellery is something that I was recently gifted by my husband. A yellow gold Victorian heart locket with a ruby set in the front. Engraved on the back are the co-ordinates of where we first met.
Favourite film
I love a period film, so having enjoyed the whole Downtown Abbey series, the film was the icing on the cake for me.
Favourite line from a film
It has to be “You were only supposed to blow the bloody doors off,” from The Italian Job.
Favourite TV show
I love baking when I get the time, so it would have to be a cookery programme. Life can get busy, and there’s no better antidote than a dose of Mary Berry.
Favourite book
The Secret History by Donna Tartt. Favourite meal
Any kind of seafood every time.
Favourite item of clothing
A 1950’s black taffeta one shoulder
cocktail dress from my mum that she used to wear. I wore it to my degree graduation and still wear it today on special occasions.
Favourite holiday destination
We have a cottage in Devon which has a
special place in our hearts. As much as I would love to say an exotic foreign location, the Devon coast is the place I love to be most.
Favourite part of Suffolk
We are so lucky to live and work in Lavenham which is, in my view, one of the most beautiful of the Suffolk villages, but there are so many stunning locations in this county.
Favourite piece of art
We bought a stunning piece of art a couple of years ago which is as amazing as it is beautiful. It features a real feather which has had 20 or so pheasant shapes cut out of one side that all fly off away from the feather.
Favourite scent/smell
Who doesn’t love the smell of freshly mown grass. It signals the promise of summer and makes me look forward to the warmer months ahead.
. . . and the not so favourite?
TV programme I always turn off
Any horror film.
Most annoying habit I see in other people
People who continually interrupt you or talk over you in conversation.
A celebrity who should stay out of the limelight
Piers Morgan.
