Rebecca Sellors of C.W Sellors has teamed up with TV channel Gemporia to create an exclusive range of Blue John jewellery.
Gemporia’s hosts will welcome Sellors to its live auctions on March 29 to launch the new collection which features a selection of rings, earrings and necklaces.
The designer prides herself on championing the British gemstone and believes that Blue John has a lot to offer the jewellery industry.
Sellors said: “Emeralds, rubies and sapphires will always take centre stage, yet should you be prepared to delve a little deeper for gemstone discovery then you will find Blue John is quite a unique material, with a fantastic array of colours and patterns which are perfect for jewellery setting. “
Blue John is a rare natural variety of Fluorite and can only be found in the Peak District, Derbyshire.
She added: “I am trying to raise the bar for the gemstone and allow it – quite rightly – to sit alongside the most favoured pieces of any jewellery collection.”
Jake Thompson, Gemporia’s commercial director, said: “In this collection, we bring something that is British-mined, British-designed and British-made. ‘National treasure’ is a phrase that is too often cast out there, but through our collaboration with Rebecca collectors have the opportunity to own our true national treasure.”
