Melanie Grant has been a journalist for over 20 years having worked at The Times, The Financial Times, The Independent, The Guardian, The BBC and now The Economist where she writes, edits, styles and art directs luxury content for 1843 Magazine, the lifestyle sister publication. She also owned and ran her own creative agency for nearly a decade giving her valuable experience on the commercial side of luxury but it was at The Economist in 2013 that she discovered her passion for writing.

Since then she has become the authority on jewellery as art and commodity, writing articles and giving talks at The Science Museum, The Victoria and Albert Museum, The Association of Art & Antiques Dealers, PAD, The Sarabande Foundation, The Gemological Institute of America, New York Jewelry Week, Masterpiece, Phillips and Christie’s.

She recently became a Humanities Scholar at Harvard and is a guest lecturer for the MA Design and final year of the BA Jewellery courses at Central Saint Martin’s. In her spare time she writes for Vogue, Vanity Fair, Tatler, CNN Style and The Natural Diamond Council.  She has just finished her first book on jewellery, art and economics after three years of research which was published on 1st October 2020 by Phaidon.
