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 continuity.

"We Want Our Lockets To Surprise And Delight"

We know that what makes your locket really precious is not the materials it is made from but the photographs inside it. Jewellery which is treasured are the pieces that mark important moments on life's journey - a special birthday, a new baby, a wedding, the passing of a loved one.

At the heart of the Memory Keeper Locket is the idea of keeping loved ones close and of treasuring precious memories. In a fast-paced culture, we don't always take time to cherish these moments. I also wanted the Memory Keeper Locket to be something that is passed on through the generations. Quality and craftsmanship are important to us. We were delighted when the Memory Keeper Locket was selected for the shops at Kensington Palace and the Tower of London ahead of the Royal Wedding.

"Jewellery Connects Us With The Past In An Intimate Way"

Lily Blanche Memory Keeper Lockets are made in small batches and take just over three months to complete. The Lockets are made of sterling silver and the gold versions feature 18 carat gold in a traditional technique known as vermeil. You can read more about this on our website.

Each Memory Keeper Locket uses seven times as much precious metal as it takes to make a £300 Tiffany Atlas pendant. After the Memory Keeper Lockets are given a final polish, they are sent to the Edinburgh Assay Office for hallmarking, which guarantees the quality and authenticity of the piece. This Locket is often bought to mark a special occasion – a birthday, anniversary, wedding or the arrival of a new member of the family. It also makes a lovely gift from a bride to a mother of the bride.

" Judy Tweeted That The Memory Keeper Locket Was Her Favourite Piece"

We were delighted when Judy Murray, the tennis coach and Strictly star, bought the Memory Keeper Locket and wore it to Wimbledon to watch her sons Andy & Jamie become champions. We were even more thrilled when Judy tweeted that the Memory Keeper Locket was her favourite piece of jewellery and wore it on the finale of Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway. It was just as thrilling to see the actress Hermione Norris wear the Memory Keeper Locket in the series Cold Feet.
