The CLAN-inspired necklace created by Sinclairs

The necklace has been created for local charity CLAN Cancer Support.

The stunning piece of jewellery, worth more than £500, will be auctioned at the upcoming Tea in the Park event, a ladies’ afternoon tea party, organised by law firm Stronachs LLP, with all proceeds being contributed to CLAN.

Steve Mitchell, goldsmith at Sinclairs in Inverurie, based the design of the necklace on the CLAN logo, with a 12 carat amethyst stone secured in a sterling silver setting and displayed on a twenty inch chain.

Owner of Sinclairs, Ian Sinclair said it had been an honour to create the one-off design: “Like Stronachs, we’re passionate about raising money for CLAN because they’re a hugely important charity in the north-east, and one which is very close to our hearts.’’

“When the law firm’s charity and social committee asked if we could donate something for the charity auction, we were more than happy to create something extra special.

“This is a beautiful and unique piece - one we’ve really enjoyed working on.”

The “Tea in the Park” event will take place at The Park Café, Hazlehead Park on Friday, June 3 with all proceeds being contributed to CLAN.

The event is now sold out, but you can still support CLAN by emailing [email protected] to donate or bid on an auction prize.

CLAN Cancer Support is an independent charity that supports those affected by cancer.
