There’s something about the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal that always makes me smile. I love that in a country divided politically, almost all of Londoners come together from mid-October to mid-November to support the troops by wearing that iconic poppy on their lapel.
This year, jewelry designer Kleshna capitalized on making the poppy a little more durable, and a lot more fashionable.
These pieces debuted on the contestants of the X-factor, and ever since have been sold out on the Royal British Legion’s website. You can, however, still get a select few on the Kleshna website.
The upside, your poppy will last through the years and looks pretty too. The downside, at around £40.00 for the broach, only 10 percent of proceeds go to the Royal British Legion, which when you have to buy at least 5 per year of the paper variety, isn’t that much.
