Pippa Middleton, a regular Merci Maman customer, gave her sister Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge (pictured), an engraved The Duchess necklace to mark the birth of her first-born child, George.

Personalised jewellery makes a lovely keepsake for a special occasion. Necklaces and bracelets are a classic way to mark birthdays and anniversaries, with your own hand-engraved message such as names and special dates (and is perfect for Mother’s Day too). Keyrings are a great gift to celebrate graduation and other significant milestones such as retirement. Cufflinks, collar stiffeners and money clips are perfect for hard-to-buy-for men and would make a personal and meaningful Father’s Day gift.
