St Pauls Cathedral
A cathedral dedicated to St Paul has stood on this site since AD 604. The present Cathedral, dating from the late 17th century, was designed in the English Baroque style by Sir Christopher Wren. Its construction, completed within Wren’s lifetime, was part of a major rebuilding programme which took place in the city after the Great Fire of London.
Handmade by CW Sellors this ‘inspired by’ collection, influenced by the interior of St Paul’s Cathedral and set with Portoro and Carrera Marble. Inspired by and featuring subtle elements from the distinctive and elegant designs, that feature throughout the Cathedral, the collection has been designed to be enjoying and worn everyday.
St Paul’s Marble
There are many areas within the Cathedral which feature marble, the well – known chequer-board effect on the Church Floor itself is finished in approximately 18,000 ‘Carrera’ and ‘Belgio Black’ marble tiles! Amongst other marbles used throughout the Cathedral’s design, a particular favourite of architect Sir Christopher Wren was the distinctive black and gold Italian marble known as ‘Portoro’ which, along with the ‘Carrera,’ has been used in our exclusive jewellery collections.
