When I think back to receiving my first piece of jewellery I am sure it was a locket. I always wanted one to keep photos inside of myself and then boyfriend, I can’t even remember if I ever put a photo inside as they were always too small. Back then you couldn’t just resize pictures on the internet for this kind of thing. You had to take the pictures, go to a chemist to get them developed, most were out of shot and if you took them from far enough away to fit into a locket they were undoubtedly blurred!
Though times change some trends stay the same and I think as long as we want to carry photos around in our purses and wallets there is reason enough to bring back personalised lockets. The Engravers Guild believe that an engraved locket is one of the most personal items of jewellery possible… but feel that this type of jewellery has been somewhat overlooked of late and is now due a bit of a renaissance!
I was delighted to be sent one of their rose gold lockets engraved with the initials S & D, although we are not together anymore S is still a huge part of my life and father to all 6 of our children, so will always be in my life too and I thought a locket engraved with our initials was a perfect keepsake.
On a beautifully delicate chain this necklace makes a great piece of jewellery that would work well either dressed up or down and can obviously worn either with the swirl engraved front or initials on display. With oval, heart, circle and drum lockets available in gold, silver and rose gold there is ample choice for anyone wanting a classic timeless piece to keep.
I was gifted the locket in return for this review, all views and opinions are my own and genuine.
