During their royal tour the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Gdansk. They visited European Solidarity Centre, Shakespeare theatre, the market square, the Artus Court building. The people of Gdansk greeted them warmly, cheered and applauded. Gdańsk Mayor Paweł Adamowicz gave the royal couple nice symbolic present - amber jewellery.
Duke Willam has been passed the elegant cufflinks – Elipse - made of silver with rhodium coating and cherry amber.
The necklace for Dutchess Kate – “Qule”-is made of 585 gold , natural milk amber in the shape of a sphere and unique chain covered with black shell. Cufflinks and necklace were designed by art professor Sławomir Fijalkowski of the S&A Jewellery Design company in Gdańsk.
Marzena Leś, Export Director In S&A: The jewellery we have prepared is not an accidental choice. We have been trying to match it to the Dutchess style and her preferences so she could also wear the necklace as an elegant piece of jewellery while she is officially travelling. It was also important for us to show the natural beauty of amber to show its uniqueness and charm.
The collection has met with the positive reception from not only the special commission appointed by Gdańsk City Hall to choose the official gift but jewellery industry and stylists as well. It is planned to be launched in August 2017.
