Jewellery Ranges For Valentines Day
Valentine’s jewellery is a meaningful way to show your loved ones how truly special they are. Whether you’re looking for timeless treasures or something stylish yet sentimental, the Licensed To Charm’s Valentine’s collection is filled with unique and original choices. We’ve highlighted some of our most popular products at a range of price points for your celebrations of love!
Say it with Flowers: A charming necklace or bracelet with a Rose, Forget-me-not or Daisy
Our Wild About Flowers Collection is simple, beautiful and romantic. Choose blooms for their meanings, according to the Language of Flowers - a Rose for desire and deep emotion; a Violet for faithfulness; a Daisy for innocent love, or a Forget-me-not as a reminder of affection - and give them as stand-alone charms to add to a favourite piece, or on a ready-to-wear necklace or bracelet. The flowers are handmade in England, cast in Sterling Silver from original wax carvings created on commission for Licensed to Charm, and come in a polished silver finish or Gold Vermeil.
Something timeless and classic: the National Portrait Gallery ‘Amor et Virtute’ necklace
The most enduringly stylish pieces of jewellery are often simple yet beautiful. Our National Portrait Gallery ‘Amor et Virtute’ necklace is both. Bearing the motto of a very special Tudor figure, Sir Walter Ralegh (Raleigh) which is inscribed on his portrait in the gallery, this necklace makes an ideal lover’s tryst gift.
Something for the modernist: Handmade High Line Gold Drop Circular Earrings
Finding a piece of jewellery that’s both dramatic, modern and elegant can be challenging, but doing so can result in an ideal Valentine’s Day gift. The High Line Gold Drop Circular Earrings are completely handmade and textured with a hammering technique, so every pair is subtly different making them a truly unique Valentine’s Day gift.
Something seasonal and special for nature lovers: The Birch Leaf Charm Bracelet in Gold Vermeil
If your special someone is looking forward to Spring, our Spring Birch Leaf Charm Bracelet Gold Vermeil might just be the ideal gift. Heralding the new shoots of spring, this unusual bracelet can be worn every day.
Something to always keep: Show your love with engraved Valentine’s Day gifts!
If you want to communicate a personalised message, we have a special selection of our own designs of engravable jewellery including a heart necklace in two sizes, tactile pebbles cast from real pebbles and a vintage style love letter, plus a selection of tags and discus. Our engraved gifts offer a personal touch that act as a reminder of love anytime they’re seen or worn, and as an added bonus, it's all done freehand using an engraving pen. Write initials, names, a zodiac sign or a message on our unique personalised jewellery gifts and make a wonderful keepsake to be treasured forever...
GIFTING - CELEBRATE STRENGTH AND BEAUTY WITH SUSTAINABLE JEWELLERY, HANDMADE IN LONDON.
London based jewellery label Licensed to Charm is launching a series of collections in the run-up to Christmas, bound together by strength and beauty. From their Battersea boutique-slash-studio, the sustainable brand handmakes original quirky and collectable silver and gold vermeil jewellery and charms from which you can create your personal jewellery story. So engrave a time-worn pebble pendant, celebrate the iconic Frida Kahlo with their Frida skull necklace, or make a statement with their bold High Line earrings. With a wide range to choose from, it truly is a one-stop shop for the jewellery lovers in your life. Here are our top three gift picks from our newest collections.
FRIDA KAHLO SILVER SKULL, £65
Frida Kahlo is immortalised in sterling silver as part of the Licensed to Charm’s Love & Pain collection. Steeped in immense strength, power and beauty, this necklace is the perfect choice for the strong person in your life. Incredibly detailed and handmade in London, Frida’s sugar skull laden with symbolism and completed by her signature marigold wreath is an unmistakable ode to the ultimate power symbol.
SEASHORE PEBBLE CHARM BRACELET, £50
Create a piece of jewellery that holds special meaning to the wearer with their range of engraving options. Choose to personalise a delicate gold vermeil Pebble charm bracelet, cast from a pebble that Licensed to Charm’s founder Maggie Calmels found on a beach near her family’s East Sussex home. A simple and timeless symbol, the pebble is handmade with a sateen finish and is the perfect base for your own engraved design. The engraving is done free-hand using an engraving pen, etching your choice of letters and numbers, zodiac symbols, line drawings and hand-drawn illustrations of love, friendship and protection.
HIGH LINE EARRINGS GOLD VERMEIL, £70
For something sleek and contemporary, why not choose the High Line collection of eye-catching jewellery inspired by modern shapes of urban New York as seen from Manhattan’s High-line garden. Launching on 15th November the pieces are completely handmade so every one is unique and crafted from the highest quality materials. The designs call to those who love bold, modern pieces and add the perfect finishing touch to your outfit. The geometry, constructivist style, with pure shapes - lines and circles - in hand-beaten silver gives the earrings a symbolic feel and they are incredibly versatile.
Licensed to Charm is a designer and maker of quirky collectable jewellery which is full of character, unique and totally authentic. Everything is designed and made in the UK and collections include both officially licensed ranges and their own design creations, crafted in sterling silver and gold vermeil.
Founded in 2012, the business was initially a small family-run workshop and boutique shop creating and making its own designs. In 2018 during a visit to Bologna book fair, founder Maggie Calmels had the idea to recreate favourite characters and objects with a special place in people’s memories as collectable charm jewellery – and so Licensed to Charm was born. The first brands to come on board were a trio of British Classics: The Beano; Aardman Animations; and Watership Down, followed by Thunderbirds, Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Hello Kitty, Miffy, Pusheen and cult classics like The Labyrinth.
A family-run brand, their shop in Battersea doubles as a studio workshop, with a retail boutique shop located upstairs and a busy studio downstairs. They are a small business with big ethics; they use ethically sourced materials and try to minimise waste and recycle wherever possible. Their products are all made in the UK using highly skilled artisans in the established jewellery trade in London, Birmingham and Scotland.
