Cross pendant designed by 'Vicar of Dibley' Dawn French goes to auction

by Marcus Jones

A cross pendant created by the star of sitcom The Vicar of Dibley is being auctioned later this month.

The jewellery was designed as part of the ‘Dazzler Campaign’ where celebrities such as Dawn French designed pieces to raise funds for the National Osteoporosis Society.

Years later the cross is going on sale with an estimated £500-£700 price.

Bids are being accepted online by Fellows Auctioneers with the auction ending on Thursday 16th April.

The pendant includes a ‘Heera’ cut diamond consisting of 49-facets. This means that the diamond reflects light in a unique way. 

Nicola Whittaker, Business Development Manager at Fellows Auctioneers, who consigned the pendant, said: "It’s fascinating consigning pieces to our auctions that were designed by celebrities as it adds something extra to the story behind them. 

"This piece is particularly intriguing because the cut of the diamond is so unique and rare. It’s the perfect representation of beautiful jewellery that we continue to offer in our timed, online-only auctions and bids can be placed."
