Though the original use of lockets during the Victorian era was a sad one – a gift of condolence to someone who’d lost a loved one – their use quickly spread to other, more romantic and happy purposes. Soon the heart-shaped locket was conceived, and women wore them around their necks as a symbol of their lovers’ hearts against their own.
The locket is a very special piece of jewelry, steeped in history and tradition. Women have been wearing lockets with pictures of their lovers, husbands, children, or other loved ones in them for generations upon generations. Each of our antique style diamond lockets maintains the romance of actual antique lockets and all of their history.
With so much rich tradition, our vintage style diamond lockets make wonderful gifts for any woman, but especially for your wife or mother. For a Mother’s Day gift, an antique style diamond locket could have a picture of her children in it. For Valentine’s Day or an anniversary, you could put a picture of the two of you together in one of our diamond lockets.
At Dacarli, we know that you’re giving her your heart when you give her one of our lockets. That’s why we use heavy metal weights for lasting pieces of jewelry that will look beautiful and elegant for many years to come. Our heavy diamond lockets are designed to be timeless treasures and to be worn and loved for a lifetime or more.
Depending on her taste and style, we have heart- and oval-shaped diamond lockets in two-tone gold, with blue sapphires, and in a number of beautifully detailed designs. We put great effort into creating each antique style diamond locket to be unique and timeless. You could have found this piece of jewelry in your grandmother’s jewelry box, or you could find it around a woman’s neck 40 years from now.
Each diamond locket carries with it centuries of tradition, but it also carries its wearer’s heart and the heart of the person who gave it to her. Give her your heart this Valentine’s Day, on your anniversary, or for no other reason than to show her how much you love and appreciate her. She’ll wear it for years to come and think of you every time she puts it on.
