Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge helped highlight The Royal British Legion’s range of poppy jewellery earlier this year when she wore a crystal poppy brooch to a reception celebrating a South Pole expedition in support of the Legion’s vital work for all members of the British Armed Forces past and present, and their families.

The Buckley brooch is part of a beautiful range of jewellery that can be worn all year around to show support for the Legion and the families it cares for.

Of course November 11th is  ‘Poppy Day’ and, now with a ‘Royal Seal of Approval’, the Legion’s crystal brooches are sure to be seen on lapels up and down the country; complimenting the traditional paper poppies.

The brooch is plated with 18 karat gold, inlaid with red crystals and comes in an attractive presentation box. It is available is two sizes; medium and large. The medium brooch measures 40mm x 24mm and is available at £15. The large brooch (as worn by The Duchess of Cambridge) measures 65mm x 39mm and is available at £25.

Buy online from The Poppy Shop – www.poppyshop.org.uk. All proceeds raised from the sale of the brooches go directly to The Royal British Legion.
