Unique gifts from Lily Charmed

My Dad was a skilful artist who created some amazing pieces of jewellery, and I consider myself to be rather spoilt when it comes to jewellery. It is not easy to impress me. However, Lily Charmed managed to do just that. When I was browsing their range of charms online, I thought that their artwork is truly original and stylish.
Lily Charmed was launched in 2011 by cousins Marcus Pearce and Lucy Lee, and named after Marcus’ daughter Lily. They say:
"Our desire to create beautiful and original jewellery that celebrates special occasions and relationships lead us to create our unique message cards. The message card frames the charms you choose, and shares the meaning behind your gift – making it one which will be treasured forever."

How many times have you being stuck, thinking of buying a meaningful gift for someone you love, or a dear friend, and dismissing one idea after another?

Lily Charmed gives you an opportunity to buy a stylish personalised gift. Their selection of charms, necklaces and bracelets is varied and impressive. The quality of artwork is high (in fact every charm goes through the quality control).

As I was perusing the online store, I was presented with a very difficult choice. I loved the beautiful ethereal feathers... A tiny crown was darn cute and very tempting... A teeny-weeny teacup screamed "Get me!" (it will make a fantastic gift for any tea lover).
Seashells and anchors reminded me of the Cornish seaside and would look stunning with the summer dresses and open tops.

At the end I opted for a silver jigsaw charm necklace. As you might know, a jigsaw/puzzle piece is often used as a symbol of autism. Autism is a big puzzle, and as a parent of a child on the spectrum, I am proud to wear this beautiful symbol. To me it represents what it is to be out of the ordinary. There are so many pieces to this puzzle that we need to solve to understand the condition. The pieces of the puzzle are all different and in my opinion they signify the differences between the people and the misunderstanding that comes as a result of them.
Of course, if you start to ponder and philosophise on the matter, you might say it could be applied to the human beings in general. We are all different.

This dainty and exquisite necklace arrived beautifully presented in a gift box. Once you open a stylish white box, you "receive" a card with a meaningful message. Mine said "You... were my missing piece". A lovely sentiment. And a card that would be greeted with delight by anyone.

The sterling silver charms have been lightly sandblasted to give an elegant matte finish. The chain is very delicate, and the necklace is very light, it is like wearing a snowflake.
Lily Charmed also offers a range of charms in gold, but I prefer to wear silver. However, if you are a gold lover, Lily Charmed has recently launched a gold vermeil range of charms. Or go for a mixed combination of gold and silver. The choice is yours.

I love my stylish jigsaw piece, and it means a lot to me too. What would you choose?

Disclosure: I was offered to choose a charm for the purposes of reviewing, all opinions are mine.


  1. I would choose the same thing, it's beautiful x

    1. It was a difficult choice, I loved that teacup thingy, and the seashell/anchor charms looked fab too.

  2. These charms are really beautiful - I like their simplicity and daintiness. I love the puzzle piece you chose, but I think I would go for the tea cup.

    1. Thank you Zoe! I agree the teacup is very special.
