Lockets are key statement jewellery pieces and can be worn alone with a personal sentiment encased or layered with other necklaces to create an on trend look. Our signature star lockets are the ultimate statement pieces and are a perfect self purchase or gift.
The locket has a long history within the jewellery world. The history of the locket begins with pendants that had engravings, symbols or pictures on them. These were either personal messages or lettering to the wearer, almost the equivalent to carving initials into a tree, or they were symbols to ward off evil and bring good luck to the wearer.
Eventually, these evolved into necklaces you could keep things in, from perfume to herbs and eventually mementos likes locks of hair and small portraits, paintings and eventually photographs. One of the most notable lockets in history is that of Queen Elizabeth I who owned a locket ring. It was said she had a portrait of herself on one side, and her mother Anne Boleyn on the other side.
People often gift lockets to others, with Mothers being the most common recipient. They make the perfect present due to the room inside to place special photographs or memories within. From children to grandchildren and more, it’s such a priceless gift that can be enjoyed for a long time, and passed down from generation to generation.
