Laings family jewellers’ Scottish roots

The exclusive egg locket has been handcrafted from 18k rose gold and opens to reveal a Bull Thistle surprise hidden inside, a nod to Laings’ rich heritage and in keeping with the ‘Fabergé in Bloom’ theme which marks the Maison’s 180th year in 2022. The bale of the locket is set with 14 round brilliant cut diamonds.

With only five of the Fabergé for Laings Thistle Egg Surprise Lockets currently available, these are true collectors’ items which have been designed to be worn and cherished.

Stuart McDowell, Managing Director of Laings, said: “Fabergé is an iconic jewellery Maison which epitomises the finest of artistry and design. The synergy between our brands is deep-rooted, from our dedication to quality and craftsmanship, to the fact that descendants from both founding families are still involved in the businesses today, over 180 years later.

“With similar founding dates, it’s been a privilege to be able to celebrate our milestone anniversaries together, culminating in this collaboration. Our shared vision and values are what unites us, and we have been able to extend this partnership to our clients with the addition of this unique piece within our wider Fabergé offering.”

 Antony Lindsay, Managing Director at Fabergé, said: “This year marks a special year for us, as it’s our 180th Anniversary. In celebration of this, we’ve taken inspiration from our historical botanical studies – the miniature masterpieces developed by Peter Carl, and applied the ‘Fabergé in Bloom’ theme to a series of new creations, which include this exclusive locket in collaboration with Laings. This piece celebrates ‘A Life in Colour’ and the surprise inside is sure to delight its recipient.” 

The Fabergé Essence Rose Gold Thistle Surprise Locket, exclusive to Laings, retails at £6,840 and is available now via Laings’ Edinburgh, Cardiff and Southampton showrooms and online at
