I love jewelry — gold, silver, turquoise, diamonds, plastic, beads, whatever! And I particularly love special and memorable pieces that are symbolic and meaningful. So, to me, a locket necklace is the perfect piece of jewelry. Dainty, beautiful, with a little hidden secret photograph inside. LOVE.
I recently came across a collection of lockets from Monica Rich Kosann
, and I was instantly sold. Each of them is so beautiful and unique, that it took me a while to settle on just one. They are all so incredibly special. The Monica Rich Kosann collection is designed to offer customers heirlooms for their generation. As she claims, “A woman can tell her story through her jewelry. Living with and celebrating the memories we create each day in our lives is universal to all of us.” And I fully agree .
Lockets and charms. All with a personal touch.
A locket truly captures a unique moment, and it is extra special that you can keep that moment close to your heart. Plus, little kids love opening up lockets to see what is inside. Well, at least my monkey does. Every night before bed time, he asks to see what is inside of the necklace. Melts my heart.
So many options to choose from!
Silver option. I love silver — and it is much more affordable, too. That said, I currently have a “thing” for gold, and therefore purchased this locket in gold.
I decided to get the gold iconic oval locket (Monica’s most popular). It is embellished with a signature floral pattern. Although it is something that I am wearing right now, I am excited by the possibility of giving it to my kids and having them do the same. A family heirloom in the making! And it all started with me and the gold locket!
Gold locket. Even holding the locket in my hand feels special.
Laid out. See how the gold catches the light? A ray of shining light!
SURPRISE! Photographs! I still have to put images of my loved ones inside — as I don’t have a dog, and don’t know that little girl.
On shirt. Hello stripes.
Personalization! You can add charms on to your lockets, or get a necklace with just charms. I love it all.
A perfect gift for Mother’s Day (send this post to your husbands, Ladies!) or for yourself, just cause. Shop online at Monica Rich Kasann to see all the wonderful options.
