Few recent trends have hit the fashion world as intensely as the locket. Once reserved for sentimental momentous and cherished family heirlooms, lockets have taken on a more fashionable place in jewellery collections everywhere.
Diverse, beautiful, and sentimental, a locket piece can make the perfect accessory for any occasion, whether you’re at a backyard barbeque with friends or plan on attending an exquisite ball. If you’re hoping to make a statement with your jewellery this year, you should certainly pick up a locket and add it to your collection.
The History of the Locket
Throughout history, lockets have always been recognized as one of the most personal pieces of jewellery. Lockets are often personalized with images or designed in a way that makes them unique from other pieces.
In the past, lockets were passed down from generation to generation and told the story of a family line. Today, they have held onto their sentimental value, while at the same time becoming a fashionable trending accessory.
A locket can be made from any precious metal and be encrusted with any type of stone whether diamond or gem, if you so prefer. With that said, lockets are typically made with yellow gold, white gold, or platinum, and will either be engraved or lined with crystal clear diamonds.
Lockets have taken a new place in modern fashion trends as a highly requested accessory. People are ordering custom-made lockets now more than ever and this could make the perfect gift for a friend, family member, or significant other.
Finding the Perfect Locket
Designers and jewellers will often engrave lockets with personalized messages or symbols that add an extra level of sentimentality to the piece.
One of the many popular locket designers today is Stuller. Stuller’s lockets offer wearers a fully customized experience and are crafted with durability and longevity in mind.
