The Royal Mint has launched its first collaboration with a British jewellery designer to create a bespoke collection of sterling silver jewellery.
The feminine, yet contemporary ‘Sprig’ collection is a first for The Royal Mint and marks an exciting development in our gifting range. The collaboration with Sarah Jordan was designed and made in the UK with the oak and acorn motif featured on many coins throughout history proved vital.
Taken from the original 1936 design of the silver Sixpence, the acorn design appealed to Sarah due to her childhood spent in the Derbyshire countryside. However, the motif was updated to create a sleek, unique theme which formed the basis of the Sprig range, from stud earrings through to a choker necklace.
Sarah Jordan has been designing and manufacturing jewellery for 30 years having won a number of prestigious awards including UK Jewellery Designer of the Year. Sarah set the trend of the organic, fluid style seen in the jewellery industry today which has been beautifully transferred into our Sprig collection.
The gifting range is incredibly unique and features a range of stunning stud and drop earrings, bracelets, necklaces and brooches. Helen Cooper, Director of Gifting at The Royal Mint told us: “We are incredibly excited to collaborate with a talented designer like Sarah Jordan, who has really brought our vision to life with this bespoke collection of jewellery. The Sprig collection is the start of a journey for The Royal Mint and developing jewellery inspired by our long history and coin making expertise.
“We are really pleased to have Sarah on-board and working with us to create this collection. Sarah’s beautiful jewellery items are all designed and made in the UK, a value that is highly important to The Royal Mint. Her stunning, fluid designs are a wonderful addition to The Royal Mint’s gifting range and we hope our customers love them as much as we do.”
Sarah Jordan, award-winning designer, added: “The Sprig range is absolutely unique and it has been fantastic to work with The Royal Mint and take inspiration from its 1000-year heritage. Creating the Sprig range for The Royal Mint has been incredibly personal for me and I hope that people feel the love and the care that has gone into the creation of the collection.”
