For this years Poppy appeal the Royal British Legion have asked three jewellery designers to make pieces based on poppies.
My favourite jewellery designer Alex Monroe has made this lovely gold and jewelled poppy broach, as worn by the fabulous Judi Dench.
Luxury jewellery Theo Fennell has made this piece (as modelled by the also fabulous Dame Helen Mirren)
and Kleshan, loved by the stars, have made this broach, again seen on Dame Judi Dench:
Bids can be made for the jewellery here. I think this is a lovely idea and although these are a little out of my price range I hope they raise lots of money. I will be wearing my normal paper poppy with pride on Remembrance Day.
