Loquet London Charms Wearers With a Heartfelt Jewelry Collab


A new collaboration between jeweler Loquet London and British celebrity Kate Kane serves as a testament to women as wives and mothers as well as to the importance of protecting mental health.

Loquet London founder Sheherazade Goldsmith says she reached out to Kane, wife of British soccer superstar Harry Kane, after seeing Kate wear a Loquet London necklace during the World Cup. Watching Kane grip the locket as her husband played made Goldsmith appreciate how customers create the combination of necklace and charms they need at that time in their life.

“Our lockets are something people carry when they need support or they’re anxious. It’s like carrying the things that mean the most to you,” Goldsmith says. “The wives of these players are watching their husbands on the pitch, and the world is either with you or against you. That’s hard because their families are everything to them, particularly when they’re playing.”

The pink opal and blue chalcedony lockets ($6,000 each) can be personalized with a number of charms. 

Together, Goldsmith and Kane designed a collection that includes two lapidary lockets, two beaded bracelets, four unique crystal charms, and two 18k gold charms. Prices range from $245 for the rose quartz bracelet with lion charm to $6,000 for a pink opal heart locket with diamonds.

All proceeds from the jewelry’s sales will go to the Harry Kane Foundation, an organization the Kanes founded to normalize conversations around mental health and promote positive habits that support mental well-being.

Goldsmith first met Kane in person for lunch (with Kane’s mother) after they’d gotten in touch through Instagram. During that initial conversation, they realized together how much they had in common as wives, mothers, and women, Goldsmith says. They also discussed the personal significance of certain gems.

“Kate collects these stones, and it’s a connection between her and her mother, who introduced her to their healing power,” Goldsmith says. “She loves rose quartz, opal, chalcedony, citrine. She puts them behind her children’s beds at night. In the morning, she’s asked them to pick a stone that they need to go with them in their schoolbags. She told so many lovely stories that I immediately wanted to work with her.”

Triangular charms in Loquet London’s Kate Kane collaboration ($340–$380) have special meaning based on the stone used: Yellow citrine represents energy and passion; blue agate is said to bring inner peace and  freedom; and rose quartz equals adaptability.

Those meaningful symbols and materials are present throughout the jewelry collection they designed. Pink opal, Goldsmith explains, is believed to give the wearer gentle energy and encourage calm and peace, while blue chalcedony is a soothing presence, helping emotional wounds to heal.

Among the charms’ shapes, the Bowen knot speaks to family ties and unbreakable bonds, and the cloud with silver lining represents divine presence, consciousness, and a guiding higher power, says Goldsmith. Plus, the cloud is made of moonstone, which encourages stability.

There also are triangular cabochons of blue agate, rose quartz, and citrine, which symbolize air, water, and fire, respectively. These gemstones encourage wearers to treat themselves with kindness by promoting reflection, positivity, and love, Goldsmith says.

Loquet lion charm
Kane designed the lion charm ($280) with hearts around its mane to honor her husband’s astrological sign and his kindness. 

Perhaps the most important charm in the collaboration is the Lion Heart, a sign of leadership and the need to build inner strength. Kane designed it because her husband—captain of England’s national team, which plays in the Euro quarterfinals tomorrow—is a Leo, and she added hearts as the lion’s mane to represent Harry’s warmth and strength.

Goldsmith’s son also is a Leo, so that was one more indication this partnership was meant to be, she says.

“Lockets like ours very much are self-purchases. They allow women a minute to celebrate themselves. They can reflect on what they’ve done and what they’ve achieved,” says Goldsmith. “They’re lovely pieces, and I’m excited to see them out and about.”
