Style & Then Some

Here they are, all your sparkly poppy options ready for Remembrance Day

With less two weeks to go until Remembrance Day on 11th November, we round up this year’s blingiest poppy brooches, rings, earrings and more.

The poppy has been used since 1920 to as a symbol of remembrance for those who have died in war, but it’s only in recent years that the humble paper poppy has gotten a glamorous makeover. Once the preserve of TV presenters and X-Factor judges, there are now nearly fifty types of poppy jewellery available for anyone to buy – including some new styles to mark this year’s Centenary of World War I. Here, we round up the prettiest poppies, from the £13 ring to the £40 mega brooch. Plus, we examine which are the most generous in terms of their donation to the Royal British Legion, the charity that runs the Poppy Appeal and provides support and advice to Service personnel past and present, and their families.

Poppy Collection crystal poppy ring, £12.99 from PoppyShop.org.uk. Featuring ruby and jet crystals, this ring is minimal enough that it would actually look good all year round.

Royal British Legion donation: 100 per cent

Crystal Poppy Brooch, £9.99 from eBay. A flat, four-petaled brooch that differs from the usual round-petaled poppy shape.
