Fabergé introduces two new commemorative lockets to its Heritage collection, in celebration of the coronation of King Charles III on Saturday 6th May 2023.
The Heritage Yellow Gold Diamond and Red Guilloché Enamel Coronation Crown and Heritage Yellow Gold Diamond and Red Guilloché Enamel Gold State Coach Surprise Lockets feature the British Hallmarking Council’s new hallmark, depicting King Charles III’s head, as a tribute to this special year. This hallmark is also exclusively available, upon request, to be applied to any item of Fabergé jewellery or bespoke orders made this year, increasing the collectability of these special lockets.
The 18k yellow gold egg lockets are hand-painted with a regal red guilloché enamel and decorated with 17 round brilliant cut white diamonds. In true Fabergé style, each one contains a hidden surprise which is revealed at the touch of a diamond button.
The Heritage Coronation Gold State Coach Surprise Locket features a miniature replica of the iconic Gold State Coach, which has been a splendid sight at royal coronations, jubilees, and events since it was built in 1762 to transport British kings and queens. The miniature carriage sits upon a carnelian carved stone platform and is adorned with a diamond on the side of the door.
The Heritage Coronation Crown Surprise Locket is inspired by St Edward’s Crown, the crown used at the moment of coronation and one of the nation’s most precious treasures. The Fabergé crown surprise is crafted from 18k yellow gold, hand-decorated in a majestic purple lacquer and is set with 4 round blue sapphires,10 round Gemfields Zambian emeralds and 2 round Gemfields Mozambican rubies and sits upon a carved carnelian stone platform.
Gemfields responsibly mines and markets coloured gemstones from some of the world’s finest gemstone deposits, while ensuring the gemstones bring benefit back to their countries of origin. With a great respect for the natural world and the communities that inhabit it, Gemfields believes that those who mine gemstones should do so with transparency, legitimacy, and integrity.
