Can a man wear a locket?

Interestingly, throughout history, lockets have been worn by men as much as they have by women. With the trend toward gender neutral dressing styles we believe more men and non-binary people will be wearing lockets.


Why are lockets called lockets?

Lockets evolved from ancient amulets. European designs for lockets appear to date to the 16th century, when small pendants were worn to conceal good luck charms, small fabric squares soaked in perfume to ward off the poor smells on public thoroughfares, painted portraits, and even, on occasion, poison.

It makes for a perfect gift, as it’s something that can be worn by anyone and everyone, fitting into your life as if you always owned it.

What does a locket look like?

They come in many shapes such as ovals, hearts and circles and are usually made of precious metals such as gold or silver befitting their status as decorative jewellery. Locketsusually hold only one or two photographs, but some specially made lockets can hold up to eight.


How do you wear a locket necklace?

Wear black or solid colour top to give the most focus to your locket. Avoid layering on other necklaces or pendants. Keep your locket clean so it can shine its best. A top with a high collar helps showcase the locket entirely over the fabric you're wearing.

Are lockets in fashion?

The 21st century locket is just as fashionable as it is sentimental. Modern Jeweller’s Jeff Prine and Staci Kline say the value of a locket isn't just the outside or the inside – it's the combination of the stories held inside and the aesthetic appeal of a locket that makes it both unique and memorable.


What is the most flattering necklace length?
