When it comes to my favourite type of jewellery, you will have to go a long way to find something I love as much as a charm bracelet or necklace. I think these say so much about the person wearing them – what they like, their hobbies, interests, family and loves. Jewellery featuring charms can be added to, so makes a perfect gift idea, and my current favourite charm pieces come from the gorgeous Lily Charmed.
Lily Charmed is a great British success story, a real cottage industry that was started at a kitchen table and is now stocked at a range of gift shops and jewellers, as well as online at Notonthehighstreet.com and on the Lily Charmed website. The idea behind Lily Charmed is that you choose your chain, then your charms and finally compose a message for your creation. The piece is then beautifully displayed in a Lily Charmed giftbox, ready to be delivered to your loved one who is sure to fall in love with it.
The Lily Charmed look ranges from the classic to the fun and quirky. There are classic charms like lucky charms, birds, flowers and hearts – these are always so popular. But there are also less tradition designs based around food (the ice cream charms and cupcakes are just lovely.) and also cute seaside designs which are a lovely edition to your summer outfits. Charms are designed in either Sterling Silver or gold plated sterling silver, and can be personalised with different chain lengths (including a child size) and with the addition of a silver letter of your choice
I was asked to review my favourite piece from Lily Charmed and found making the choice very difficult, the charms are just so fresh and pretty. In the end I opted for a super cute custard cream charm in sterling silver – by far my favourite biscuit. The Custard Cream charm is a really delicate piece that you could wear every day. The detailing is brilliant – it is just like a custard cream, but in delicate silver engraving.
I’ve been wearing this necklace a lot, it isn’t ostentatious, but it is a talking piece – something that makes people smile when they see it, and comment on how unusual it is. It looks great worn with black as the silver is a striking contrast, but is also something you can wear with jeans and a simple top.
If you are looking for a personal gift idea, love charm jewellery, or really just want to treat yourself, I would highly recommend the stunning pieces from Lily Charmed – delicate, pretty and beautifully presented. Bookmark their site now!
