Royal Worcester China Bridges Snow-Set Diamonds
The traditional gift to mark a 20th anniversary is china. It is a material that is hardly associated with luxury jewellery, but the Pragnell workshop rose to the challenge to mark two decades of Her Majesty the Queen’s reign.
A bridge of rich royal blue china connects the two sides of this snow-set diamond ring. The china, which has been channel-set as if it were a gemstone, was once the handle of a fine china teacup made by Royal Worcester, the British porcelain maker that has held a royal warrant since the 1700s. The band of the ring has been handcrafted in 18ct yellow gold. The design of this ring was inspired by a sketch found in the archives of Philip Antrobus, the jeweller that created the Queen’s engagement ring and which is owned by sixth-generation British family jeweller Pragnell.
