Memory lockets have become very popular over the past few years. After the rise of the charm bracelet, it was only natural that another style of sentimental jewellery would come to the fore. And, what better than a gorgeous glass pendant locket, with meaningful charms displayed inside?
If you are looking for the perfect floating charm locket, you may be feeling a bit overwhelmed by the options that are available. There are a few decisions you will need to make in order to determine the best style of locket for you. The first decision is what type of metal to go for. You will find floating charm lockets in both gold and silver. Of course, the choice depends entirely on your personal preference. What style of jewellery do you usually wear? If you wear a lot of silver, then a silver locket would be the best choice, and vice versa. It is worth pointing out that most of the charms available for memory lockets are silver charms, so you will have a bigger selection available to you if you do go for a locket in the same metal. Although, luckily, we have become more open to mixing and matching metals over the past few years, so if this is a trend you like, you can combine gold and silver. The next decision is whether to choose a plain locket or one that is adorned with crystals. Memory lockets with Swarovski crystals encrusted around the pendant are beautiful and ideal for those that like a little bit of bling.
Next, you need to consider what charms you are going to place inside of the locket. Of course, you can change the charms whenever you like. But to start off, it is a good idea to go for two or three charms. There are so many options to choose from, including love hearts, baby feet, letters, paw prints, horse shoes, and much more. It is a good idea to decide whether you want a theme or not. For example, you may want to create a floating memory locket that celebrates your relationship with your partner, and so you would incorporate love themed charms. There are also personalised and unique charms available, for example, fingerprint and ash pendant charms. The latter is a beautiful way to keep a loved one close to your heart when they have passed away. Fingerprint charms enable you to create a unique charm featuring the fingerprint of someone you love. This is a gorgeous choice for new mums, enabling them to capture the fingerprint of their newborn. You may simply decide that you don’t want a theme at all, and instead you want to choose charms that you like and mean something to your life. Don’t forget to consider the meaning of each charm, for example, a horseshoe represents good luck.
Hopefully, you now have a better understanding of the different options that are available to you when it comes to memory lockets and charms. You should have no trouble putting together the perfect locket for you.
