This Holbein portrait of Henry VIII is remarkable for its painstaking attention to detail, enabling me to re-create many of the jewels and also the impressive State Chain.


The picture below shows the small four lobed ouch, as seen on Henry's hat, with a loop on the back so that it can be sewn on. As this was taken from a Jane Seymour portrait originally, you will find it on the retail site, described as a "Jane Seymour Ouch". These are gold plated and set with a Black Onyx flat cabochon. They measure 16mm.Price £2.25.each.

sleeves and chest of Henry's outfit. The photograph below shows these
large ouches, gold plated and set with a Carnelian cabochon. They measure 38mm by 31mm. Price £4.00.

The most ambitious piece of jewelry is of course the large State Chain,
gold plated and set with a profusion of two hundred and eighty eight simulated pearls; seven flat Black Onyx cabochons, eight large Carnelian cabochons and a large, domed, central Black Onyx stone. Measuring 140cm this heavy chain is sure to draw gasps of admiration. Price £245.00.
