Derbyshire jewellers launch new collection to celebrate 70th anniversary of Peak District National Park and raise funds
A Derbyshire based jewellery and watch business has launched a new collection to celebrate the Peak District’s 70th anniversary and raise funds for its upkeep.
C W Sellors Fine Jewellery, located in Ashbourne, are one of the Foundation’s Peak Partners and released the limited edition pieces to commemorate the Peak District’s milestone birthday as the UK’s first National Park.
The collection includes a choice of two sizes of millstone pendant, adjustable bracelet and whale back cufflinks, with a Derbyshire Blue John gemstone at the heart of each design.
Each handcrafted piece also features the number 70 subtly incorporated into the sterling silver metalwork.
C W Sellors are donating 10 per cent of each sale to the Peak District National Park Foundation to raise money for the site’s upkeep.
Rebecca Sellors said: “We love working on commemorative designs and, whilst of course we started with the connection to the event being celebrated, we also wanted to ensure any pieces created are elegant, wearable and are of the fine jewellery manufacturing standards our customers have come to expect.
“I really feel we have been able to achieve this with the Millstone 70 collection which, alongside marking the National Park’s 70th anniversary, is also a celebration of one its greatest assets with each piece having been handcrafted with the finest Blue John gemstone.”
Foundation manager Sarah Slowther added: “These pieces are both inspired by and a celebration of the Peak District.
"Every purchase includes a donation to the Foundation, to support conservation and engagement projects so these landscapes thrive for future generations to enjoy.”
