Our collection of sterling silver keepsake photo lockets are made from antique glass and set in sterling silver. They are available in the following shapes: heart, square, rectangular, circle (round), oval, decorative oval, teardrop, and hexagon. They are a great keepsake for a special memory and can house a photo or picture, flower, ashes or hair. They can be plated in gold / gold vermeil on top of the solid sterling silver to create a gold coloured locket necklace. Many customers wear them with nothing inside as a fun pendant necklace while others prefer to keep their memories close to their hearts and will enclose something sentimental inside. They are an alternative take on the traditional sterling silver locket necklace and can sometimes be referred to as an antique locket or antique French locket.Pendant Only. Our chains are sold separately.

All our engraving is performed by a master hand engraver based in London's jewellery district, Hatton Garden and so takes a bit longer. To choose a personalized locket, please choose the font number (see font card photo) you would like and specify the text in the details when checking out. Unless otherwise specified, all messages will be on the sides of the locket in the best fitting position. Please allow an additional week for any personalization. Our recommendation for a block font is Font #8 and our recommendation for a script font is Font #10. Alternatively, you can have your own handwriting copied directly onto the locket. Just write out what you want, send us the photo, and specify that you want your penmanship copied in the details when checking out. More intricate and elaborate fonts may be subject to additional charges.
