Santa’s Lap: Postcode Bangles

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAEvery day until Christmas we will be pointing you in the direction of a London-inspired Christmas gift that (with a bit of luck) you won’t already have on your list. Climb up onto our collective lap and we’ll see what we can move from our sack to your stockings…

Well, these are rather flash. Whistle & Bango is a new London jewellery company making bangles embossed with various London postcodes. They’re gold or silver plated and the colour panel is enamel (which colour depends on which postcode; so far there’s black, red, turquoise and peacock blue).

The bangles aren’t cheap – £60 – but look impressive and £1 from each sale goes to Mother of Peace UK, a charity supporting orphans in Zimbabwe.

So far you can only get bangles for SW3, SW6, SW11, W11 and N1, but you can vote for future postcodes on Whistle & Bango’s website.
