Personalized Lockets – A gift from the Heart
Few gifts are as meaningful as a personalized locket. Personalized lockets allow your loved one to keep both your photo and your special message close to her heart. Having a locket engraved shows your loved one that you put thought and effort into her gift — a fact that is guaranteed to be appreciated.
Step 1: Who?
The first step in picking out the right locket is to determine for whom you are purchasing the locket. Is it your romantic partner, your daughter, sister, or mother?
If you are buying for your romantic partner, then a heart-shaped locket is the natural choice. An oval or circle-shaped locket would be a good choice for anyone else, although a heart will suffice, as well.

Step 2: Silver, Gold, White Gold, Oh My!
The second thing to determine is what type of material you want the locket to be constructed out of. Does the gift receiver prefer silver, gold, or white gold? You will want to choose a locket crafted out of a material that she will want to wear. A good way to figure this out is to look in her jewelry box and see what most of her jewelry is made of. Or, you can do the direct approach and simply ask.

Step 3: Design
Now you will want to decide how elaborate you want the locket to be. Do you want to buy her one with an elaborate design or encrusted jewels? Do you want it to hold one picture or four? Keep in mind what your loved one would like. If she’s a no-frills type of girl, then an elaborately engraved locket is probably not the right choice for her.
Step 4: Personalized It
Finally, the most fun and meaningful part! You will need to decide on a message to personalize the locket. Simple phrases like “I Love You,” “You’re Special,” or “Forever” are all popular and meaningful sayings. The most important aspect when it comes to shopping for personalized lockets is choosing the right one for the lady who will be wearing it, so be sure that the engraving is something she will want to show off when wearing her locket.
