By Gillian Crawford 21 June 2018 No comments

There is no nicer or more personal piece of jewellery than a locket filled with special memories. It’s the perfect way to keep loved ones close and it can give great pleasure and comfort to know they are always with you.

At Lily Blanche we have a variety of lockets which take photographs - ranging from our highly romantic Vintage Heart Lockets to the bestselling Memory Keeper Lockets in silver, gold or rose gold. These open to take six photographs.

We have recently launched our photo insertion service for Lily Blanche lockets and this is proving extremely popular. We shrink, enhance and print the photos on high quality photographic paper before inserting them into your locket to create a highly personalised gift or memento.

Our Most Romantic Locket

By Gillian Crawford 14 June 2018 No comments

When it comes to romantic and meaningful jewellery, you simply cannot beat a locket. It’s one of the few pieces of jewellery which can be truly personalized and it has a fascinating history. While lockets date back to the 16th century, they reached their peak of popularity in the Victorian era.

Queen Victoria was the Meghan Markle of her day – a trend setter whose patronage of a particular item of clothing or jewellery would send it into the stratosphere. She was also a great romantic. Madly in love with her Prince Albert, the pair would go to great lengths to exchange personalized love tokens.

DO YOU REMEMBER the first piece of jewellery which really meant something to you? The piece you knew you would always treasure and eventually pass on to somone you love?

This is the feeling I wanted to recreate with the Memory Keeper Locket®. Family is everything to me and I wanted to create a locket with heirloom quality which was a precious symbol of life, love and family. I love lockets and their hidden secrets but it was difficult to find one that looked really special and two photos weren't enough to hold all the people I love close. I wanted to hold a lifetime of love in my locket and so I got out my sketch book and started looking for inspiration.

This was the beginning of the 6 photo Memory Keeper Locket® . Based on a vintage design from my grandmother’s jewel box, this unique photo locket has been crafted to let you hold all of your loved ones close in six individual photo frames.

The Lily Blanche Memory Keeper Locket Is:

  • Made only of solid silver and 18 carat gold
  • Hallmarked in Edinburgh by the Assay Office with the full UK hallmark
  • Worn by Strictly Star and Tennis coach Judy Murray
  • An heirloom piece of fabulous craftsmanship
  • The subject of over 440 verified five star reviews online
  • Available with our engraving and photo service to make it personalised
  • A British brand specialising in sustainable and ethical jewellery
  • A member of the National Association of Jewellers.

Quality and craftsmanship are important to me. So I was delighted when Kensington Palace asked to stock the Memory Keeper Locket® ahead of the Royal Wedding of the Duke & Duchess of Sussex. Our lockets are made in small batches using only the finest gold and silver. They are individually tested and hallmarked by the Edinburgh Assay Office giving you complete confidence.

Use our photo and engraving services to make your Memory Keeper Locket® unique. You can order pictures at the same time as your locket or separately later. Just choose your six photographs and email them to media@lilyblanche.com quoting your order number. We'll include a spare set of photographs too.

  • First choose your images. Pick strong portrait shots which are clear and unfussy and where there is a bit of space around the head (ie the top of the head is not cut off or up against the edge of the photograph) Single headshots work best at this size.

Kristen Stewart Nails The Layered Pendant Look At Cannes

By lilyblanche 23 May 2016 No comments

All the attention has been on Kristen Stewart's new bleached blonde hair which she unveiled on the red carpet at Cannes but at Lily Blanche we were interested in the way she nailed the layered pendant look. Long and short pendants in mixed metals, worn together are a key look for summer and the queen of tom-boy chic pulled it off effortlessly.

Wedding Lockets

It has to be one of the most romantic gestures ever. When Brad Pitt married Angelina Jolie at their family home, Chateau Miraval in Correns France, he gave her a locket containing a photograph of her late mother, Marcheline Bertrand. Angelina's mother, whom she adored, died of ovarian cancer in 2007 at the age of just 56. Brad and Angelina had been dating for two years but Marcheline did not live long enough to see the couple marry or to meet their brood.
