18 carat gold heart pendant

 

2022 marks Her Majesty The Queen's 70th Jubilee. The Queen will be the first British monarch to celebrate seventy years of service, having acceded to the throne in February 1952. To celebrate this occasion, the British Hallmarking Council has sanctioned a special commemorative hallmark, available only for the Jubilee Year of 2022. Our 2022 Limited Edition pendants have been been completed with this new official Assay Office hallmark. The commemorative mark is an extra stamp, in addition to the standard hallmarks, which serves to evidence that your pendant is an exclusive Jubilee Limited Edition.

The Limited Edition 18 carat gold necklace is the focal point of our much-loved Heart of Yorkshire collection. The collection celebrates one of York's most iconic landmarks; The Heart of Yorkshire window which adorns the majestic York Minster. Towering over the city of York, the central motif of the stunning Great West Window is an intricate heart design, carved by master masons eight hundred years ago.

 

York Minster Heart of Yorkshire Window

In keeping with the romantic heart motif, over the centuries a charming tradition has grown in the city which asserts that a couple who share a kiss under the West Window will enjoy lifelong love. 

In 2022 the Great West Window will be adorned with a new addition on the 800-year old façade. A new statue, marking the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and paying tribute to her service and duty to her country, will sit beneath the Heart of Yorkshire window. The statue is being carved by one of York Minster's resident masons, Richard Bossons, and will be placed in its niche in the West Window later in the year. Once completed, the statue will stand two metres tall and will weigh nearly two tonnes.
