Recently, and for the second time, we had a special private viewing of the British Crown Jewels. It’s quite a privilege.
For those of you that haven’t heard of them – which should be very few – they’re a unique collection of pieces gathered by fair means and foul over the centuries.
While they’re very different from anything that you’re likely to see worn outside the heavily guarded precincts of a state event, they do allow you to see what’s possible given almost unlimited funds. In fact, the limitation on some of the crowns is that they’re uncomfortably heavy to wear.
Though we do like to make statement pieces, we prefer you wear them casually and comfortably.
Mind you, if you have the budget and a strong neck we can surely come up with something!
