We've just heard some very exciting news! Raising funds for The Prince’s Foundation for Children & the Arts and Holts Academy, Coutts have teamed up with no less than 21 internationally renowned British brands who each designed and handcrafted a unique jewellery box as part of an initiative named Beautiful Boxes. With up and coming designers as well as more established brands, contributors will include Paul Smith, Annoushka Jewellery, Elizabeth Gage, Monica Vinader as well as fabulous jewellery designer Alex Monroe with his adorable gold bees adorning the lid of his jewellery box.
If you simply can't resist the idea of such an exclusive item (honestly, who can?) you'll be thrilled to hear that each of these beautiful boxes will be available in a live auction taking place on eBay from the 14th to the 24th of March.
Micheal Morley, Chief Executive at Coutts & Co explained,
'Coutts has a long history of championing the creative industries and philanthropy has been running in our DNA since our earliest foundations. This campaign was launched as a fundraising project that would champion the best of British design excellence today, while harnessing artistic talent of future generations. We are extremely grateful to those who have given their time and we are confident that these unique handcrafted boxes will go on to become treasures of the future.'
We expect these luxury boxes will disappear fast but if you've got your eye on one in particular, remember to head over to eBay from the 14th of March or find out more about the initiative on the Coutts website.
