All About Lockets And Their Uses

Jul 26, 2008
Lockets have long been the perfect gift for holidays such as Valentine's Day or even Christmas and birthdays. Lockets are great for sentimental gifts, since they often include a picture or other small objects to remember someone by. As such, they are commonly only given to those who have a close relationship with the giver.

There is no better way to show off how well endowed one is by obtaining jewelry. Lockets in particular have a lot to customize, since the locket will in itself be expensive, yet so will the chain be that it rests on. The choices are doubled when considering that different metals need to be chosen, as well as any ornaments or gems that one may wish to add to a locket for more effect.

A locket is commonly seen as a piece of jewelry that allows one to open a hinged contraption to see a small object or photograph underneath. This is considered common, but as times are changing, so too do the lockets we think of as normal. Newer lockets are now replacing the opaque metals with glass, so that opening the locket isn't needed. Obviously this is a bold statement, and isn't for everyone.

While one would logically think that the average locket would only contain one photograph so as to prevent a gaudy look about the locket, trends are now also making room for more pictures or objects. Many lockets will remain the same size, yet incorporate revolving features that can hold multiple pictures at once. This is a great way to save multiple pictures of the same person, or to even include others in the fun.

The shape of the locket in question means a lot to the benefactor of the gift. A heart, for instance, would suggest that the benefactor has a relationship with the giver. A circle would indicate a normal shape for lockets, and an oval is a more sophisticated type shape usually reserved for stylish designs. Of course there is not limit to the amounts of shapes that a locket can take in their many designs, and the lines can indeed be blurred for special instances.

Lastly, the locket is a type of jewelry , and it should be remembered that jewelry ranges widely in price and variations in design. Thus, it's best to get as many quotes and designs viewed as possible before making a final decision. This is especially true for anyone who doesn't have a large budget, and wants to get the best deal possible.

Closing Comments

In the end, lockets will continue to be the stylish pieces of jewelry they have been known for in previous decades. Just remember to shop around, be determined to find a good deal, and overall- be prepared to show the one close enough to the buyer to warrant the purchase something they'll never forget.
