    If you are looking for a good quality, delicate looking necklace with that all important sparkle this is the one for you. What’s more although the pendant is small it is beautifully packaged and is one of our top recommended lockets for a lady.

    This sterling silver locket pendant is a minimalistic piece of jewellery and combines with all outfits to add an elegant touch. Open the clasp and this locket displays two good sized locket pictures.

    We also felt that the simple design makes this the ideal locket for men.

    Although we liked the simplicity and refinement of this heart shaped locket, we did feel it was let down by the price which was higher than many of the others

  4. Radley Love Letters Silver Tone Heart Locket Necklace

    H Samuel
    Score 82/100

    HSamuel Locket

    Brand – Radley
    Locket measurements – 5×19 mm
    Colour – Silver
    Metal – Brass
    Length of necklace – 550 mm (22 inches) chain
    Stones – None
    Pendant photo size and shape – 5×17 mm, heart shaped

    We recommend this cute silver locket necklace for all ages. The Radley logo adds a premium touch and the unusual chain design, albeit a little thin adds a unique touch. This is a pretty piece of jewellery which catches the eye.

    The craftsmanship is good for the price but as it is a small heart shaped locket it may be tricky to find a suitable photo to fit such a small area.

    The picture locket is reasonably priced and H Samuel’s shopping experience in store (Bournemouth) was very good.

  5. Moon & Back Silver Heart Photo Locket Pendant Necklace

    Score 80/100

    Argos Locket

    Brand – Moon & Back
    Locket measurements – 18×18 mm
    Colour – Silver
    Metal – Sterling Silver
    Length of necklace – 457 mm (18 inches) chain
    Stones – 70 Cubic Zircona stones

    Pendant photo size and shape – 16×16 mm, heart shaped

    Made of sterling silver this heart shaped silver locket has an array of tiny crystals on the front and has room for two photos on the inside.

    On the positive side this pendant is a good size, very sparkly and we felt it makes a great necklace for a teenager. However, it is a little flimsy looking and let down by the packaging as it’s a shame it didn’t come in a presentation box like some of the others we reviewed.

    The Argos online shopping experience was great with easy product search, fast checkout and speedy delivery.

More information about locket necklaces

Lockets a classic piece of jewellery and with thoughtfully chosen photos inside make an ideal, meaningful gift for birthdays, anniversaries, or Christmas. There are lockets on the market to suit all styles and tastes and they can we worn with just about anything.

Silver LocketGold Locket

The most important thing to consider here is who the locket is for. If you’re buying it for yourself then you will obviously choose something in line with your own personal taste. However, if you’re buying such a sentimental gift for someone else you want it to be something they will wear and treasure, that suits their style and will still look classy in years to come. It’s not a bad idea to ask them what metal they prefer their jewellery to be, or if you’re subtle, you could take note of the style of jewellery they already wear and find something that would compliment that. Do they favour classic shapes and colours? Or something a little bit different? Once you’ve determined this you’re better equipped to choose whether you want a gold or silver locket, a traditional oval or heart shaped locket design, or something more modern.

The next important consideration are the locket photos you choose because when you open your picture locket you’ll be reminded of memorable people and moments and you’ll carry these memories next to your heart. Therefore, the photo you choose to go inside it will hold special memories and meaning. Take your time to choose the perfect image — enjoy the process of browsing old photos and reliving those memorable moments. Alternatively, you could also consider putting a lock of hair in your locker rather than photos.

Finally, don’t forget that you can also get beautiful lockets that are personalised with an inscription – like ‘we love you Mum’ in a child’s handwriting and this along with a special photo makes a locket necklace a very special gift.
