Bermuda is Britain’s oldest and most affluent British Overseas Territory situated in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean, famed for its pink sandy beaches that gain their signature colour from crushed coral and shells. This beautiful island is brimming with unique local culture, history and architecture. Boasting sparkling blue waters, coral reefs, and superyachts – it has been firmly on the radar of the rich and famous as a place to see and be seen.

At just 21 square miles, it is a popular destination for honeymooners keen to explore the scenic landscapes and quiet coves, and what better way to commemorate a romantic adventure than to visit a local jeweller to pick out a special souvenir.
