There’s something about lockets that appeal to every little girl. It’s a whimsical idea really, the notion of wearing a pendent around one’s neck that magically opens to reveal a secret compartment. At least that was the draw for me as a child, and any chance I got, I wrapped my little fingers around my mom’s necklace, always gleefully amused when inside rested a tiny picture of myself. Since I have no children, and my cat would probably be disturbed if she found out that I had included her photograph inside, I think this clear, Crystal Locket is my best bet. Set in 14-karat gold vermeil, it hangs on a longer chain, making the classic necklace a contemporary addition to one’s jewelry box.
