Locket Love

I love the mystery of a locket.
What's inside, a picture of your sweet little niece, or the love of your life?

A Brief History of Lockets - History

Of course the first locket most of us remember is the tiny little heart or oval locket we all received as a birthday gift, sometime between first and fifth grade.... and they still make these sweet little baubles, still time to order one before Xmas.

And then you grow up... Two Toned Diamond Locket. Buy $3,200

Love diamonds! ... But really, most days I'm trying to work a cool urban downtown look.

These are some of my favorites.....

Asymmetrical Cloisonne Necklace. Buy $49

This Chloe Locket is so me... I love the dainty flowers, paired with the rough finish on the chain... and it's only $25 Buy

Channel Marilyn, with this lovely modern locket from Urban Rose $8. Buy

Love these little recycled magnetic lockets. Perfect for tooling around town on a Saturday morning, in your 'casuals'.
Lucky Buddha Lockets $18. Buy
