More From Forbes

In case you haven’t heard, Queen Elizabeth II is celebrating her Platinum Jubilee this month, marking her 70 years as the reigning monarch of the United Kingdom and its Commonwealth realms.

Like many companies, U.K. jeweler, Loquet London is honoring the milestone with special items. In this case, the brand has designed three limited-edition platinum and diamond charms as part of its new “Britain in Bloom” collection. The charms are inspired by the crown Queen Elizabeth II wore at her coronation, the George IV State Diadem, also known as the “Diamond Diadem,” and features English roses, Scottish thistles, and Irish shamrocks.

“I knew I wanted to create something special to commemorate The Queen's historic reign,” says Sheherazade Goldsmith, founder of Loquet London. “Her love for jewels is no secret, and many of her favorite pieces appear to be those with sentimental meaning, which is the ethos of Loquet London – heirloom jewelry with special significance to last a lifetime. I thought this collection was a fitting way to pay tribute to her.”

In addition to the limited-edition platinum charms, Loquet London produced all three of the designs, plus an additional triumphant Welsh daffodil charm, in yellow gold that will be part of the permanent Britain in Bloom collection. The Scottish thistle features green and pink enamel with diamonds, the English Tudor rose is outlined with red rhodium and has diamonds and tsavorites, the clover charm is also made with green rhodium, tsavorites and diamonds, and the added daffodil charm has a hint of green enamel with diamonds.

Finally, to accompany the unveiling of the Britain in Bloom charms, Loquet London has released a new collection of lockets called “Enduring Love,” which features three designs. The Lovers Knot locket portrays the unbreakable bond between two lovers, the Infinity locket represents endless love with no beginning or end, and the Trinity locket symbolizes an eternal form and a love that can’t be untied.

The limited-edition platinum charms start at $500 and the yellow gold versions at $350. The Enduring Love locket collection starts at $7,200 with all items available at the Loquet London website.
