Among all the types of jewelry in the world, lockets are, perhaps, the most sentimental. Lockets were originally designed for wearers to keep an image of a beloved (once painted, and then photographs) nearby.Whenever you wanted to see your sweetheart, you could simply gaze at the image in your locket.
Remember, in those days, before we had the internet and high speed travel and all of the luxuries we have now, it was possible to go a great deal of time without seeing or talking to your darling. A locket was therefore an especially prized piece of jewelry. It was intensely personal, signifying in many ways the connection between the wearer and the person in the image.
