Faberge Heritage White and Yellow Gold Black Enamel Locket with Penguin Surprise
For the perfect surprise on Christmas morning, treat that special someone to a piece of Faberge jewellery. The luxury brand certainly has no shortage of festive-themed designs, but an all time favourite is this Fabergé Heritage Locket with Penguin Surprise. The egg-shaped pendant is hand-painted in enamel with 18ct white gold filigree pattern and white diamond accents. Upon opening the egg, a playful 18ct yellow gold penguin surprises you decorated in black and white enamel and a glittering white diamond eye. To evoke the icy landscape of the Antarctic, the penguin is placed on a silicate agate base which hangs from a contrasting 18ct yellow gold bail.
9ct Yellow Gold Blue John Split Heart Stud Earrings
If you’re searching for a romantic Christmas gift idea, then look no further than these stunning 9ct Yellow Gold Blue John Split Heart Stud Earrings. Remarkably simple and yet absolutely breathtaking, these heart-shaped studs are handcrafted in our very own workshops by our talented team of in-house craftsmen and women who have carefully moulded 9ct yellow gold into two split heart settings. They have then carefully taken a piece of Blue John, a rare gemstone found only in the hills of Castleton, Derbyshire, and carved, polished and flush set it into the gold. The earrings are completed by classic post and butterfly fastenings.
