Jewellery has so often been used as a way of keeping memories of people and places alive and always with us. Think of that ring of your Mum's that you never take off, or the necklace that was handed down from your Granny and that you now reach for again and again, or maybe the bracelet you picked up on that wonderful holiday that takes you right back there whenever you wear it.
Lockets have been a mainstay of this tradition for so long, bringing with them romance, remembrance, and charm. This one - a fresh new modern interpretation - is no exception.
Our modern lockets are double-sided, which vastly increases how they can be used. Either put in two photos back to back or a tiny keepsake. In the photos you will see that we have put a tiny leaf in the silver-finished one, and some glass sand in the gold-finished one. So long as it's small enough, anything goes - a lock of your baby's hair, some sand from your favourite beach, a small flower from your wedding bouquet, a sprig of aromatic herbs from a special place...
Threaded on to a generous 80cm chain, these lockets are 29mm across and have a magnetic closure. The gold coloured ones are made from brass with glass windows, and their chains are brass plated with 22k gold. The silver coloured ones are made from surgical stainless steel with glass windows, and the chains are made from brass plated with rhodium.
