Nelson's Lost Chelengk Podcast

Listen to Joanna discuss the fascinating story of recreating Britain's lost jewel

Bestowed upon Admiral Lord Nelson by the Sultan Selim III of Turkey following Britain's defeat of the French in the Battle of the Nile in 1798, this hat jewel once delighted British high society. Tragically, in 1951 the jewel was stolen and never found. In understanding the story of the chelengk, historian Martyn Downer decided to recreate the jewel with the help of London-based craftspeople. Joanna watched the jewel's remarkable journey from original design to sparkling ornament. Listen to the story here.
