An exceptional Blue Star Sapphire ring from Hatton Garden

A unique and magnificent star sapphire, diamond and 18ct gold ring has arrived from London’s Hatton Garden. It features a stunning natural blue star sapphire of seven carats displaying a shimmering natural six-point star. This is a magnificent large ring showcasing one of Nature’s phenomena. It is festooned with shimmering white diamonds, crowning the star sapphire and encrusting the 18ct white gold band. Exquisitely designed and handcrafted by an international jeweller, it looks—and is—rare and valuable.
The quality of a star sapphire depends on many elements, including the star’s orientation and the cabochon’s symmetry, proportions and finish. And this natural Ceylon star sapphire has it all: wonderful symmetry and quality, the blue of the sapphire perfect to display the bright rays of the star. It has all the qualities the world’s gemologists seek: the star’s rays are uniform in strength, they reach from one side to the other, and they intersect at the top of the stone. They are straight, not fuzzy or broken, and contrast strongly against the beautiful blue of the sapphire. This star also has elegant ‘movement’, in that, as you rock the stone, the brilliant star moves smoothly across the surface. We are thrilled to have this unique and exquisite ring for our Members—particularly as the gemstone for September is the sapphire.
The scientific term for the science of a star sapphire is asterism, a natural gemological phenomenon; but the star sapphire is also filled with romance and symbolism. Known as the ‘Stone of Destiny’, it is reputed to give the wearer strength and health, and ward off illness, in addition to the sapphire’s association with devotion: sapphire is thought to bring peace and contentment, as well as constancy and true love.
Whatever the meanings of the stone, this ring is a beautiful, natural, eye-catching piece of precious jewellery, a gorgeous addition to a woman’s jewellery collection, and one which will become a family heirloom. The gem is large enough to make a mesmerising impact, the diamonds flashing in a coronet of white fire—and suddenly that flash of the sapphire star appears, magnetising all who see it. So if you seek a show-stopping precious gem which is entirely natural and original, this may well be the one.
The blue star sapphire gemstone is 7.16 carats and the diamonds are .83 carats, F/G in colour and VS in clarity, and therefore in the top three for quality—very white and flawless to the eye. The ring measures 15mm by 13mm diameter. There is one only. Code SS19SJ18. RRP £13,000. CCUK £6,395. Order Natural Blue Star Sapphire, Diamond and 18ct Gold Ring from Hatton Garden.

Sushi-grade Var salmon: £59 for 4kg

More good news on the sushi-grade fresh salmon front: Var Salmon is back! Unless you have a salmon fisher in the family, Var salmon will be the most delicious you have tasted in years. It is the next best thing to wild Atlantic salmon in flavour and texture, the nearest farmed salmon can ever get to wild or ‘free range’—and you can taste it.
This is salmon as it should be, the fish served by top sushi and Michelin-star chefs. Outside their august establishments Var is not easy to find—so we jumped at the chance to source it again, particularly as the Var smoked salmon we supply is an all-time favourite with Members, some of whom will now eat no other.
And because this salmon is sushi grade, you can slice the belly for sashimi and sushi if you wish, serve whole as a supreme centrepiece at your next dinner, or slice, enjoy it fresh and freeze some for later: again, it will be the best you have tried—so different to the usual farmed fish. Var salmon will make you proud to serve salmon again. And now you can also order the whole fish already filleted—two large sides of bone-free deliciousness!
Var salmon are raised by three brothers on a revolutionary farm in the clear, cold waters of the Faroe Islands, without all the usual chemicals, and with far more humane husbandry than the usual salmon farming. It has caught the eye of some of London’s leading chefs: Michel Roux Jr, Mark Hix and John Williams of The Ritz, for example, who named it ‘the best farmed salmon I have had’—and articles appeared in the Telegraph.
As a Club Member you receive an advantageous price, as well as access to these wonderful fish. A whole fish weighs at least 4kg, which easily serves about 12 guests. Orders are placed on Friday morning for delivery to your door the following Thursday.
Fresh Var salmon, whole fish, about 4kg. Code VS19WH01. RRP £93 plus delivery. CCUK £59 with free UK mainland delivery. Order fresh Var Salmon, whole, 4kg minimum weight.

Totally delicious now, you can drink up to two years after release.
This Limited Edition M de Minuty Ruby Taylor 2018 rosé sells at £18.50 a bottle in Harvey Nichols and elsewhere: but our Members have an exclusive price of only £13.25.

Butterfly Bench by Ascalon Design

And thinking of butterflies in the garden this summer, here is our Chelsea Gold Medallists’ romantic new Butterfly Bench to create the perfect feature for your favourite aurelian—and a charming designer focal point in the garden in this wonderful butterfly year.
Beautiful in any setting, its elegant lines in classic cream will form a picture-postcard setting wherever you place it, from a pathway to a cottage wall, beneath a tree, by a fountain, beneath an arbour or in a conservatory—this is a design feature which will draw the eye, as well as giving you a perfect place to take your ease. Site it near nectar-rich buddleia or lavender and the butterfly design will be completed by the real thing fluttering by.

Luxurious leather Gladstone bag

A good leather bag is the kind of investment you make once and then enjoy for pretty much the rest of your life. A bag that is so smartly designed, so sturdy, so strokable and so perfect that you look forward to packing it and carrying it around.
This new Gladstone is just that kind of bag. It is a bag you will find in ‘Gentleman’s London’, made by hand using materials that are as hard-wearing as they are luxurious, with thick, rich, oiled ‘pull up’ leather creating its smart appearance and robust nature, and which will simply improve in patina with age. And once you take a closer look at all the good ideas and expert craftsmanship that have gone into it, you’ll understand why it’s such a standout.
The Gladstone bag is a symbol of Britain, a small portmanteau which made its name as the preferred bag of prime ministers, Gladstone in particular, whose own hinged luggage was made by J G Beard in Westminster.
Our new Gladstone has the classic shape and hinged frame, giving wide, easy access to a spacious main compartment. It is comfortable to carry, using either a detachable leather shoulder strap with padded grip, or the easy-grip carry handle, and there is a trolley strap on the back. It has handy exterior zipped pockets, and internal leather trimmed stationery and phone organisers. Five metal studs at the base keep it high off the ground.
It is a perfect size for everyday business and travel use at 39cm (15in) wide, 30cm (11 3/4in) high and 21cm (8 1/4in) wide.

Essential kit for the new shooting season

These smart all-leather gunslips and fast-loading cartridge bag have arrived, just in time for the new shooting season.

The season’s Really Wild shooting suit

This is probably the smartest kit you will find this season for a quality pure wool tweed ladies’ shooting outfit of jacket, waistcoat, breeks and skirt, with a belted over-jacket and accessories.
The soft silver, brown and sage Prince of Wales check tweed of the belted over-jacket is unusual and smart. When worn with the matching tweed jacket, waistcoat and breeks or skirt in acorn blue it looks very elegant, and each piece looks great on its own. It is designed and made in pure British wool to a tailored silhouette.
The over-jacket has a collar and lapel with notched detailing, a self fabric belt with faux tortoiseshell buckle, good-sized bellows pockets and a centre back vent, with burnt orange stab stitching details. It is lined in silky light olive for a clean drape. Centre back measurement for a size 10 is 74cm.
The rest of the suit is in a delightful acorn blue Prince of Wales tweed check in browns and blues, which work beautifully together and with the over-jacket. Again in British spun wool to a tailored silhouette, the waistcoat is ultra-elegant, with leather trim and a belt adjuster strap in the back panel which allows you to tailor the waistcoat to your shape. With its smart leather collar and leather piped jet pocket trims, it looks and feels made to measure, and again it has burnt orange stab stitching and faux tortoiseshell buttons. The dark orange silky lining gives a beautiful finish.
The breeks are extremely comfortable, again in acorn blue wool, fully lined in dark orange, and featuring useful side pockets, self-fabric belt loops and a secure fly-and-hook fastening. The cuffs are secured with velcro for comfort and easy adjustment, and the faux tortoiseshell buttons and burnt orange stab stitching add smart detailing. Inside leg measurement for a size 10 is 53cm.
When you prefer a skirt to breeks, this is a classic for shooting and co-ordinates beautifully. It is beautifully tailored in front pleat style, knee-length, with concealed side zip. Again, it is fully lined in silky dark orange to give a clean drape. The centre back measurement for a size 10 is 37.5cm.
The matching jacket is very flattering, tailored hacking jacket in style, orange melton under-collar, side pockets piped with tan Amaretta suede, and a centre back vent. This is a lovely waisted jacket to wear any time—a really elegant and versatile addition to your wardrobe. It features burnt orange stab stitching, Really Wild branded faux tortoiseshell buttons, contrasting button holes in burnt orange and a dark orange lining for a clean drape. Centre back measurement for a size 10 is 70cm.

Excellent Rhône by Romain Duvernay: a snip at just £9
Romain Duvernay is a cracking wine at an unbelievably good price through the Club. Made from Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre grapes from 35-year-old vines, it has a palate of blackberries and forest fruits, aromas of liquorice and subtle hints of nutmeg, with soft tannins. It is a quality wine—particularly at your 12-bottle case price of £109 delivered.
The Duvernay family founded their négociant business in 1904, becoming one of the most reliable and well-known in the Rhône, supplying the best part of the base wine for famous producers, including Etienne Guigal. Based at Châteauneuf-du-Pape with his father Roland, Romain Duvernay decided a few years ago that the quality of his fruit was so good he would keep the best parcels and produce wine under his own label. It was a wise move—Romain is known as one of the finest palates of the region by his peers—and his wines bear witness to that. 
The Romain Duvernay is not only a bargain, it is delicious. It is perfect with rich meats such as lamb and roast beef, hearty stews and game—it loves the flavours of the fruit sauces, raspberry and bramble, which go so well with gamebirds and venison, and it is perfect with strong cheeses, making it a full dinner wine. Drinking well now, it will continue to improve for five years. 
Our Tasting Panel are impressed by the quality and extraordinarily good price through the Club, highly commending this 2017 vintage to our Members. Case of 12 bottles. Code RD17RW04. Non-Members £154. CCUK £109. Free UK mainland delivery. Order 12-bottle case Romain Duvernay Côtes-du-Rhône 2017. 

Members’ favourite chinos are here in great new colours

Just arrived for the new season: Members’ favourite tailored chinos by the English specialist trouser tailors Gurteen in more than a dozen well-chosen autumn-winter colours, from classics to anything-but-boring.
Well-constructed chinos are now the go-to trousers for leisure when flannels seem too formal and jeans too casual. They are the perfect trousers to relax in, even to wear with a smart blazer, so long as they are good—and these tailored cotton autumn-winter weight chinos are ideal. They are a firm favourite with our Members—and they have just arrived in the new season’s classic navy, charcoal, taupe and bottle green as well as putty, bracken, cranberry, wine, cobalt, petrel, tobacco and conker brown. We love them!
Stylish and traditionally cut, they are from Gurteen’s Premium Sovereign range, built to last and to make you look good and feel comfortable at the same time. They are smart—with a flat front, super-crease legs, belt loops, and matching canvas belt (the correct belt to wear with chinos)—and well made, the fabric pigment washed to resist fading, the outer seams reinforced. And for even more comfort the waistband has a slight stretch (hence the 2% Lycra added to the pure cotton). The two back pockets are buttoned and the two hip pockets have room for anything from your mobile phone to an engrossing paperback.
Sizes: waist 32in-50in, inside leg 29 1/2in, 31in and 33in. Cotton 98%, Lycra 2%. Machine washable.

Hunter Boots: the favourite neoprene 3mm, now for ladies as well as the men

The neoprene lining is the secret weapon here, making this boot an easy-going front-runner for both warmth and comfort in the field. It also comes with a 3mm and 5mm neoprene insole, so you can tailor the fit to suit yourself, and minimise fatigue. Adjustable gussets and buckles adjust the fit for the leg.
For the ladies, they come in two colours, the new navy/peppercorn (pictured above), or the classic dark olive (below left) in sizes 3-9. The men’s boot comes in dark olive (below right) or black, and in UK sizes from 6-14.

The ultimate English-made Gamebird shooting stick
It goes without saying that shooting sticks must be light yet robust, but many are now imported and their inferior metal are either too heavy or snap under weight. Our Members’ favourite shooting sticks are the Rolls-Royce of the genre, having been made in England by Gamebird since 1952.
The Gamebird Cheltenham shooting stick is smart, comfortable, fully adjustable and light yet substantial. This one has highly polished fittings and handles covered in pigskin, a tan pigskin padded seat, and bronze anodised adjustable stem giving five different height positions for walking, from 29in to 37in (74-94cm) and for sitting, from 25in to 29in (64cm to 74cm). Seat is 11in by 3.5in.

When our experts reviewed the options for our Members they chose this high-quality workhorse, the Handy 2200w 6 Ton Horizontal Electric Log Splitter THLS-6G.
