You can create your very own personalized custom message inside the locket!
I searched high and low and found some fabulous 1960's vintage lockets in the shape of a ball!
This charming gold necklace is fashioned with a classic and elegant round vintage brass ball locket which opens on the right side to reveal a pretty metallic copper color inside. The original locket had lots of age spots on the surface, so I cleaned it up and now it has a gorgeous shiny gold matte finish. I left just a couple spots on it to reflect it's true vintage beauty and to show it's authentic age. I've coated the locket with a thin layer of protection to prevent oxidation.
*Note- this brass locket will tarnish over time especially if it's mixed with your body oils against your skin. A well-aged brass locket is a lovely natural treasure that features age spots and will darken over time. If you'd rather have a non-tarnishing bright gold secret message locket, I'm happy to offer this one:
Inside this pretty treasure locket lays a strip of blank folded accordion-style paper so you can write your own personalized message, a secret note or a wish. The 2 spaces inside the locket can be left alone or you can insert your own special pictures. I'll include an extra strip of paper as well for more options. One strip of paper will be a bright white color and the other strip will be a vintage onion skin paper that was part of my grandmother's writing collection. It's lightweight and opaque giving it a delicate romantic style.
If you'd like for me to write a personal message for you in my own handwriting on one strip of paper, let me know your message in the notes section upon checkout. Space on the strip is limited, so keep your message short and sweet. Here are some fun ideas:
"You had me at hello"
"You're the peanut to my butter"
"I love you to the moon and back"
"You're the bumble to my bee"
"You're the blue to my sky"
"Will you be my bridesmaid?"
"You're the flip to my flop"
"I love you"
-your birthday, wedding or anniversary date
"You + Me = Love"
"Best friends forever"
"It's always been you"
The bright and shiny gold plated brass cable chain is a generous 24 inches long, which can be shortened upon request and the necklace is finished with a lobster clasp closure. The chain is a bit brighter and more golden than the locket (the chain is brand new but the locket is vintage), but the funky mismatched look is a trendy and popular fashion style. The ball locket measures 18mm (about 3/4 of an inch).
A fun idea would be to buy 2 ball lockets and wear one at a 16 inch length and another one at 24 inches for a fabulous layered look. It looks fantastic paired with a T-shirt and jeans!
Have lots of friends or family members to shop for? Grab some of these ball lockets and still stay on your budget! These secret message lockets are the perfect gift for brides to give their bridesmaids and surprise them with a meaningful personalized message in each one.
