The peridot snail brooch is set in 18 carat white gold and was also made specially for Lady Colin Campbell.
She says, "The peridot snail brooch is so spectacular that my only regret is that I cannot wear it as much as I would like to. That is because the jeweller who designed it used so much gold in it that it is too heavy for lightweight fabrics, and can therefore only be worn on coats, with heavy woollens or with stiffly-lined heavy silks. I realize that he was trying to oblige a valued client by living up to the jewellers' ethic of weight being preferable to lightness, but my own recommendation is that anyone wanting a version of it should opt for far less weight. This will increase its versatility, and will also be less expensive to produce."
The peridot snail brooch is set in 18 carat white gold and starts at £18,500
