Well, anyway is a good one to show off your jewellery but on Veterans’ day, why not don a little poppy?
Several ones are available and from a wide range of price. Look at this poppy boutonnière sterling for example, my favourite by the way. This silver brooch features over 100 simulated diamonds and a one-carat stone, ensuring it will twinkle away as it catches the light. And you will be blinding for a good cause since 25 per cent from each sale will be donated to The Royal British Legion.
If your tastes are a little more Art Deco, Kleshna’s 2013 poppy is the one for you. With enamelled inserts and a jewelled centre it will make an artistic addition to any lapel. 15 per cent from each sale goes to The Royal British Legion. £54, www.kleshna.com.
A nice way to commemorate the Veterans and to honour a grand father.
