Heirloom Lockets at Lima BeadsPosted by Kevin on September 23 at 02:59 pm
There’s something about lockets… It’s the nostalgia of an old photo combined with the feeling of wearing a vintage piece of jewelry. Lockets allow you to carry memories with you. Whether it’s a photo of a loved one or a photo of your favorite vacation spot, these things are never far from your heart when you’re wearing a locket.
Today we’re adding a line of lockets that I’m very proud of. They range from large to small, from plain to ornate and when you hold one in your hand, you know you’re holding something of quality.
These lockets are made 100% in the USA by old companies, some of which opened their doors in the 1940s. That’s the thing I love most about this line of heirloom quality lockets — if my grandmother had purchased a locket when she was young, she would have gotten the same product that we’re selling today. These are made on the same machines that they were 50 years ago!
Our heirloom lockets are made of good quality, thick brass. We have them available in plated finishes like antique copper or antique brass, which feel older and more classic, but we also have more trendy, popular finishes like gunmetal.
Most of our lockets come with the option to purchase a photo frame kit. This kit includes a photo frame setting that snaps into the locket, a backer for the photo, and a clear piece of acetate to protect the front of the photo. These are optional. You can usually cut a photo, push it into a locket, and have it stay put without a frame, however, if you’re considering using a valuable photo or want it to look perfect, we would suggest a frame kit.
