Retailer also works with Shaun Leane on exclusive earrings.

Retailer Steffans has joined forces with leading British jewellery brands Theo Fennell and Shaun Leane to create two exclusive product lines.

Through a partnership with Theo Fennell, Steffans has created a range of skull objets d’art, carved from responsibly sourced deer antler and topped with a sterling silver crown. The skulls have been created in homage to King Richard III, whose remains were found in Leicester, where Steffans has a store. The crown design is also a replica of the diadem worn by Richard III, and only 10 of the skulls have been produced.


Steffans has also collaborated with British designer jeweller Shaun Leane, with the retailer’s director Wes Suter working with Leane himself on a pair of silver and black spinel earrings in the brand’s signature tusk design, with the earrings also set to be produced in rose gold vermeil and black rhodium.

"They are an exclusive collaboration and a limited edition," Suter stated. Steffans is also set to host "the jewellery event of the year" at its store in Northampton this week, created to unveil the limited edition designs by Shaun Leane and Theo Fennell, complete with Grey Goose cocktails and champagne.

Suter also noted that, in the run up to Christmas, brands selling well in store at Steffans included Pandora, Michael Kors and Swiss watches in general.
