Bradley’s Jewellers has launched its new York Daffodil jewellery collection inspired by the golden blooms of spring flowers along the historic city’s walls around York minster and at clifford’s tower.
Designed by Kay Bradley, owner of Bradley’s Jewellers York, the range of fine jewellery comprises radiant yellow sapphires and burnt orange sapphires.
The collection includes a ring set with six pear-shaped yellow sapphires surrounding a round brilliant-cut orange sapphire, a daffodil brooch of yellow and orange citrines, a gemstone, floral pendant, and flower earrings, each set in either 18k gold, 9k gold or sterling silver.
Additionally, each piece of jewellery is personalised with Kay’s own York Daffodil logo, which incorporates a Y within a tiny flower, laser marked using the latest technology at the Birmingham Assay Office.
The pieces sit within a wider range of jewellery that pays homage to Yorkshire. The range also includes the ‘York Rose’ collection, sold exclusively at Bradley Jeweller’s city centre store.
Bradley said: “The daffodil is a symbol of hopefulness and optimism. On my morning walk to work, the beautiful show of bright yellow daffodils never fails to lift my spirits and remind me that, after the darkness of winter, there’s always summer on the horizon.
“They inspired me to create this very personal collection, which after difficult periods of restriction and closures during the pandemic, symbolises the spirit of new beginnings and steadfast resilience.”
She added: “Even on the darkest of days, shoppers in York have been loyal and faithful, just like these beautiful flowers, and The York Daffodil collection is my way of translating the joy these blooms give me and passing that happiness on to my customers.”
