PENDRAGON FIT FOR A PRINCESS...

In April we were commissioned to create a one-off, high quality presentation box for a very special bride. From initial brief to completed item, the whole process was as smooth as silk, and the customer received the item in good time for the special day. We wish the royal couple all happiness for the future.

BREAKING NEWS...

... following the resounding success of the specially designed hamper containing luxury scented candles from Sandy Bay in London, Pendragon have been asked to create a range of luxury presentation boxes for the perfume worn by Kate Middleton on her wedding day, Illuminum White Gardenia Petals.


WHEN ONLY THE BEST WILL DO...

For over a decade Pendragon has been a supplier to Bentley and Skinner, jewellers by appointment to both Her Majesty the Queen and HRH the Prince of Wales. When they recently placed an urgent order for handmade rigid boxes with foil printed lids, (pictured opposite) we wondered what they could be for.

Was it coincidence that The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh were just about to leave on a 5 day State Visit to the UAE and Oman? Naturally suppliers with the royal warrant are highly discreet, but these boxes are certainly ideal for presenting the kind of exquisite gifts that Bentley and Skinner provide.

As a jeweller of the highest reputation specialising in fine antique jewels, Fabergé and silver, Bentley & Skinner are renowned for their unique collection. To be displayed at its best precious jewellery like this requires a high quality presentation setting and Pendragon have made a variety of fine packaging for Bentley and Skinner over the years.
