Lockets


Although lockets aren't as popular as they once were, I find them charming and sentimental.  This flower engraved gold locket is one I found at an antiques market many years ago.


Queen Elizabeth the first wore a locket ring with portraits of her mother and herself inside.


Mary Queen of Scotts had the Penicuik Locket that she is thought to have given to a servant before her execution.

Today you can find many lovely lockets for sale, especially on Etsy.  This compass locket is from the Etsy shop Birdz n Beez.
