This is such a cool idea! I got it for my first-grade son who is having some anxiety about starting in a new school and put our family picture in it. He loves it! Really fast shipping too!

This was a necklace for my mom. Cat did amazing work and really made it special for her by adding a picture of my dad on the inside and a little K+A charm on the outside for her. San Francisco was their last big trip together before he passed away 2 years ago and Polarity's locket is a beautiful keepsake for her to wear around and remember him by.

Beautiful necklace I ordered for my daughter to wear on her first day of Preschool to calm her nerves. She absolutely loves it. Thank you Polarity for making such a durable and cute locket that can hold up to my daughter's antics!

My husband and I love our necklaces. They are perfect for us and our story. They're not too feminine for the hubs taste either which is a nice change. Seller is so sweet and goes above and beyond to help make the order special and perfect for you. Been telling everyone about Polarity even before we received the necklaces.

About

The Polarity Locket Story

I started collecting lockets when my favorite uncle gave me an Alice in Wonderland bracelet locket which I promptly lost in the schoolyard on the first day of 2nd grade.

(This left me crying and demanding a lockdown of the school grounds. My teacher refused to search my classmates' pockets and lunch bags - a situation I later blamed for my growing distrust of authority figures and inability to work a wrist strap.)

Many years later while wandering around my hubby's truck repair shop looking for a place to sit that wasn't covered in brake dust I spied a drawer full of used, blackened auto plugs that began to call my name.

Hubs said, "Cat, girls don't want to wear steel - girls want gold and silver and things that are shiny and new" and I said, " well ... maybe not all girls" ..

I began experimenting (when I realized my car parts were magnetic I almost had a coronary - luckily my dog Olive has been trained in CPR and is fast on her feet).

I took a welding class and after many hours of blood, sweat and tears - in a noisy garage at the Jersey Shore the Polarity Locket was born!

I now collaborate with the most amazing artists and photographers on the planet for my locket artwork and over 25,000 magnetic lockets have been attracting love and abundance for their owners - magnetic lockets are magical by the way! - since 2007 all handmade in the same Jersey garage by me (with a little help from Olive) and equal doses of love and propane.
