Lately I've been longing to own a pretty locket.

One that's big enough to hold a picture of my parents on one side and a picture of my in-laws on the other. I just love the idea of having their pictures so close to me all the time and being able to admire them throughout the day. Whenever I'm discouraged or upset, I can look to those pictures for comfort and inspiration and support.

Cheesy? Maybe. Oh well.

Here are some I'm loving right now:

I love the colors and pattern of this one, as well as the fact that it has a plain back-- 
so I could engrave my initials in it.

I also like the idea of a book locket, considering how much of a bookworm I am :-)

I love these last two options because they are classic and gorgeous, yet modern at the same time. 

Do any of you wear lockets? Or is it kind of an old-fashioned thing? 
I'd love to know your thoughts!

My husband gave me a beautiful, heart-shaped locket for our first anniversary :-) I never have gotten around to putting pictures in it--need to do that! I looove lockets, partially because they ARE old-fashioned :-)

Katie-- What a sweet gift! And I agree, their charm DOES come from the idea of them being old-fashioned.

I love lockets! I have one (actually in a picture on my blog today) with a little owl on it. I don't have any photos in it, though.

Where did you find the book locket?
