Present someone special with the ultimate token of your friendship with Astley Clarke's new fine jewellery friendship bracelets and necklaces, the latest additions to the hugely popular Biography collection. 

An altogether more grown-up version of the handmade friendship bracelets we used to exchange with our friends at school, these precious pieces are crafted from solid 14ct yellow gold.

Fine Biography takes the signature Astley Clarke jewellery collection to a more luxurious level by setting the iconic charm bracelets with coloured gemstones, including tanzanite, iolite, emerald, sapphire and ruby.

Each friendship bracelet is finished with a sparkling diamond pavé charm in the form of ancient talisman symbols such as the Evil Eye, Hamsa hand or the rising sun and can be worn on its own or stacked on the wrist. The collection includes six bracelets as well as two necklaces.

The original Biography collection was launched in 2010 and is inspired by the Hindu festival of Rakhi where friends and siblings celebrate their love for one another by tying a holy thread around their wrists. Over time, the ancient Indian tradition spread to the west where it evolved into the fashionable friendship bracelets of today.

Prices for the bracelets and necklaces in the new Fine Biography jewellery collection start at £850.
