British royals receive Polish amber jewellery

Handmade amber jewellery using stones from the Baltic Sea has been given to Britain's Prince William and his wife Kate during a trip to Gdańsk, on Tuesday.

Crowds waving British and Polish flags greeted the royal couple in the port city.

The amber jewellery was the only gift given to the pair during their three-day tour of Poland, which ends on Wednesday morning.

Cufflinks for Prince William, designed by art professor Sławomir Fijalkowski of the S&A Jewellery Design company in Gdańsk, were made using sterling silver and cherry-coloured amber, while a necklace for his wife featured 14-carat-gold pieces and an opaque stone, a spokeswoman for the jeweller said.

The gifts were presented to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at Arthur’s Court in Gdańsk, a former merchants’ meeting place named after Britain’s legendary mediaeval King Arthur.
