Product Description

Fettes CrestCommunity. A word which has echoed for me as long as I can remember. My real understanding of it, however, came only once I realised just how much the time I spent at Fettes has shaped who I have become. Whether a boarder, a day pupil, a member of staff or a Governor, all play a crucial role in sustaining and creating the unique experience which is attending the College. Yet, what is most extraordinary is how your belonging to Fettes does not end on your Founder’s Day. Regardless of whether you join as a young prep schooler or solely for the sixth form, every pupil leaves as a Fettesian.

It is precisely the concept of being a ‘Fettesian’ which sparked the desire to contribute to this legacy. One of the many ways in which ex-pupils come back together is through Old Fettesian Dinners, an event I would urge all who have left to attend. It was at this year’s Tayside dinner that I was lucky enough to be seated across from Dawn Beaumont, OFA Co-ordinator, the backbone to this project. The idea behind the school signet ring was an attempt to embody the community that is Fettes; whether in Edinburgh, Hong Kong or London. Old Fettesians will be able to take with them a part of the College, and a reminder of this great community. With each ring blending the history of the institution with the personal.

Thanks to Dawn, what began as simply a small idea is beautifully crafted by the fantastic designer Bianca Jones (CW 1992-95), who writes:

‘I am delighted to be involved in this project, as it so much encapsulates what jewellery symbolises to me. The concept that jewellery is a tangible reminder of who you are, and where you have come from, is fundamental to me. I had a cross-cultural upbringing, and attending Fettes brought some much-needed stability and a sense of community to my life, one that still resonates with me today. I wanted to convey that feeling in the designing and making of these rings. They have been crafted in such a way that they are incredibly tactile and moulded with smooth rounded lines – as though they were part of your hand, and practically a part of your life – as Fettes is.
Each signet ring is handmade and will be personalised with your details of attendance, creating a heritage piece that you can keep forever in the precious metal of your choice.’

Carla Bannatyne (In-CE 2005-13)

Your precious items deserve to be looked after to ensure they stay looking their best.
Here are some simple tips to keep your jewellery in good condition.

Check that fastenings are secure on necklaces and bracelets and that butterflies are tight on earrings.
A little tip is squeeze the two scrolls of your butterfly backs together to ensure they grip the post of your earring securely.

Take jewellery off before undressing to avoid catching it on clothes and pulling on any links or catches.
And I know it’s tempting to wear your jewellery in bed, while swimming, showering or at the gym but it should be avoided.

Always put your jewellery on after applying make-up and lovely scent as these elements will tarnish your jewellery.
When not wearing your jewellery, always keep each piece separately in your soft pouch so that it won’t scratch or be scratched by other pieces.

Love and care for your precious jewellery.

Packaging for your Jewellery

BiancaJones-BoxWeb-Packaging-Pouch

We love gift giving and the sentiment that goes along with it.

So we designed pretty vintage style packaging and gift cards inspired by gift-giving and the olden days. And had it all hand-made in Italy from recycled card.

We present your jewellery in a traditional box with a special suede pouch for you to keep your jewellery safe and sound.
Place the gorgeous note card of your choice on top and then hand-tie the box with grosgrain ribbon.

For loved ones. Forever.
