If none of the pieces above take your fancy, why not let mum create her own masterpiece? Antique jewellery specialist Susannah Lovis is offering customers an exclusive opportunity this Mother’s Day. Bring mum to the store in Mayfair’s iconic Burlington Arcade, along with a piece of jewellery from her existing collection that she doesn’t necessarily wear. Over a glass of champagne and a luxury chocolate (or two) Susannah will give a one-to-one consultation to help you both redesign that piece into a future heirloom that will be loved by your mum and treasured by generations to come (ie, you). Sounds pretty perfect, no? For more activities to do with mum this Mother’s Day, check out our events round-up.
