Many High Street and online lockets come with special words already engraved. Or, ask at your local jewellers for engraving services to ensure your locket displays the message you want.
Lockets Tip: In case your locket is lost or damaged, always try to keep a copy of your original photos, for example on your computer, so that they can be replaced if necessary.
Locket Necklace or Locket Bracelet
Whilst most lockets are worn on chains or necklaces around the neck, they can also be attached to anklets or wrist bands such as bangles or bracelets. Wearing a locket on a bracelet gives men as well as women the opportunity to wear a locket more discretely than a locket worn around the neck. Locket bracelets are also practical for men and women at work and at leisure, for example when swimming, as wearing a bracelet with a small locket enables means that you can keep your loved one close at all times.
When choosing the necklace, bracelet or bangle to accompany your locket, choose a complementary metal. For example, if you have a gold locket, choose a matching gold chain. Or if you have a silver, platinum, white gold or titanium locket, a silver chain will be the perfect match. Most lockets come with matching chains, however if you would like a different chain or a chain that is longer or shorter, this can be purchased separately.
Lockets Tip: If you have inherited an antique locket, you may need to add a tiny drop of lubricant to the hinges if they have become stiff with age. Looked after properly, your locket will last a lifetime and beyond.
