And for this larger-than-life event, Fabergé launched two exceptional lockets in its Heritage collection. These lockets will bear the new hallmark of the British Hallmarking Council depicting King Charles III’s head, as a tribute to this special year. The intriguing part is that this hallmark can be attached to any Fabergé jewelry this year upon request.

The Heritage Coronation Crown Surprise locket is inspired by the royal crown St. Edward wore during his coronation. With a velvet cap in a gold frame studded with rubies, the crown is one of the most precious treasures of the nation. Crafted from 18k yellow gold, the Heritage Coronation Crown Surprise is hand-decorated in purple lacquer reminiscent of the purple cap of the crown. Adorned with round blue sapphires, Gemfields Zambian emeralds and Mozambican rubies, the surprise sits upon a carved carnelian stone platform.
