The Original Bermuda Collection
By Tristan Ralston on 22nd July, 2016
For over 40 years, The Original Bermuda Collection has been a favorite keepsake for local Bermudians and visitors. The collection features 18kt gold classic and timeless designs based on the island’s unique marine life, flora, landmarks and traditions. The Original Bermuda Collection is special for many reasons, but what makes it really unique is that it is designed and handmade on-site at Astwood Dickinson’s workshop by master goldsmith, Julian Pitkin. One of the most popular designs is the Bermuda Longtail Bird which has very fine intricate detail and an elegant flair when worn. The white-tailed tropic bird – or longtail as Bermudians know it – is Bermuda’s traditional harbinger of spring and one of the most beautiful features of our coastline during the summer months. Nesting from April to October in holes and crevices of the coastal cliffs and islands, it is the only native seabird to have survived in numbers comparable to its primeval abundance on Bermuda.
Another special piece is The Bermuda Moongate, which you will see all over the island in front of homes, parks, hotels and businesses. Legend has it that people who walk through a Bermuda Moongate, especially but not solely young lovers and honeymooners, are blessed with good luck.
This Bermuda signature collection features many limited edition pieces to collect, take home as souvenirs, give as gifts and pass down to family & friends alike so you will always have a piece of Bermuda with you. The pieces symbolize the unique beauty of the island, are exclusive to Bermuda and the entire collection can only be found at the Astwood Dickinson store. A selection of pieces are available for purchase online and can be shipped worldwide. Please visit www.astwooddickinson.com to learn more.
