Win A Necklace From The Poppy Shop - Ends 31/05

Finding different and unique jewellery can be difficult on times, but I have something I want to show you today. I came across the British Royal Legion the other day and their gorgeous gifts.

A Great Charity

The British Royal Legion provide help and welfare to the serving and ex service community and their families. The organisation has one of the UK's largest memberships and runs the annual poppy and remembrance appeals.

Every week they spend £1.7 million delivering health and welfare support to service people and their families. People like a young service widow needing emotional support to an older veteran with dementia. From a young service man needing financial assistance after becoming disabled to a child of a serving family needing a break. They help everyone young or old affected by war.



The gift shop run by the British Royal Legion is a fabulous shop. The Poppy Shop as it is called is especially good because, as well as having some really lovely gifts, 100 per cent of the profits go to help those in need. 

The Poppy Pendant And The Battle Of Britain Pendant





2014 marked the centenary of the start of the First World War. Did you know over one million brave British soldiers gave their lives in the First World War? To mark the centenary a host of events took place throughout the UK to honour the British soldiers who gave their lives. I reviewed the commemorative Poppy Pendant last year.

Now to mark the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain and the 70th VE day , the Royal British Legion have teamed up with the TMB Art Metal of London to create another truly unique and stylish necklace.


This necklace is made from special metal taken from Spitfire P7350 during its recent restoration. The plane is one of the oldest and most historically significant of its type in existence, having survived the Battle of Britain complete with battle scars and bullet holes.





The pendant is cast in the shape of a poppy, the design based on a pressed poppy found in the World War One diary of Private Smith and each necklace is different, thanks to the age and character of the metal used. 

What’s more, each necklace features a poignant inscription to remember the Battle of Britain, an 18” diamond cut Belcher style silver chain and is supplied in a high-quality wooden case, complete with illustrated certificates of provenance.





Today on my blog I am giving away one of these pretty pendants, that means so much. To enter follow the steps on the Rafflecopter application below.

  93. So hard to choose just one thing, as poppies mean SO much for me-I was born on 11/11 at 11 (p.m.) and last year went to see the poppies in London on my 40th bday, which was poignant, as my grandad had been in the RAF and my nan sold poppies for twenty something years. So I honestly think that this necklace is my top favourite item, due to the history and meaning of it. <3
