THE TOP OF THE SHARD
WEAR THE LONDON SKYLINE
THE SHARD COLLECTION
This incredible collection of miniature masterpieces are perfectly brought to life in solid sterling silver and take the concept of viewing the London skyline to the next level! Our newest partnership with iconic landmark The Shard consists of all the wonderful sights of London which can be seen and enjoyed from the very top viewing platform of the Shard. Take to the skies and enjoy this wonderful collection of everything we love about our capital City of London!
”As a British jeweller, I was beyond excited to be given the opportunity to create a collection of jewellery for the most iconic landmark in London, The Shard. I’ve been to The Shard many times before and it’s one of the greatest things about our capital City. The sights are just breathtaking and the whole experience is just so special. I wanted our London collection to reflect everything I love about the sights of London. Each piece means so much to me and spent many months in design and development before we signed each special masterpiece off.
London is all about the finer details, from the sights of our wonderful landmarks, black cabs, buses and beloved Union Jack to the smells of the city such as freshly ground coffee and the London underground.
This collection not only needed to symbolise everything we love about London as a world, but I wanted to make sure that attention to detail was the main priority and I am so pleased we have managed to bring this dream to life!’
THE WHEELS ON THE BUS REALLY DO GO ROUND AND ROUND!
Attention to detail was EVERYTHING when considering how our iconic double decker London bus should look. Not only have we managed to get tiny windows and a LONDON engraving on our bus, but the wheels really do go round and round! (And the wheels on our taxi do too!)
One of the most iconic things about our capital City of London are our wonderful black cabs which can be seen from the skies at landmarks such as The Shard and Tower Bridge. Our miniature sterling silver taxi isn’t just any old taxi, the doors open and close and the wheels spin round and round too!
Inspiration for this incredible wearable piece of artwork came from some of Alyssa’s favourite sights of London which come together to form a skyline in sterling silver. If you look closely you will see the shape forms a heart beat trace, with The Shard taking centre stage.
Named ‘The Pulse of the City’, this wonderous piece is the perfect symbol to wear and pay homage to the greatest city in the world, and will be a treasured piece in anyone’s jewellery collection… What an epic design!
With love from London...
Taking the tradition of sending a postcard from a holiday along with a good old fashioned letter, our iconic opening envelope charm is straight outta London, with so much love! The envelope fastening on the front is The Shards logo! The perfect memoir from your special trip to London, keep a tiny letter, photo or ticket stub inside yours.
The Shard and Renzo Piano's Imagination.
The London collection wouldn’t be complete without The Shard itself, perfectly scaled down into miniature form! We have also re-created the original Sketch by Italian architect Renzo Piano of The Shard which was doodled onto a napkin when the concept was first dreamed up. Engraving something this detailed into such a miniature piece was both challenging and invigorating at the same time and this piece really is like wearing a piece of history.
Romeo, Romeo, where art thou?
No collection would be complete without a cheeky chappy, and Romeo the Fox is certainly this! The star of the collection, Romeo is based on a real fox who found himself living on the 72nd floor of The Shard whilst it was being constructed! Two weeks went by before this little fox was discovered by a crane driver. Little Romeo had been living on lunch scraps from the builders so when we brought this little character to life, we simply had to give him his own little lunchbox filled with sandwiches! Our solid silver Romeo sits pride of place on his lunch box which opens on a tiny hinge to reveal his sandwiches! What a tale, and a true story at that!
Romeo was taken to safety but became an absolute star mascot at The Shard.
Our favourite piece in the entire London collection.
