Looking for a new and interesting piece of jewelry that still retains the personal touch of a locket? Look no further than locket rings! These beauties are exactly what they sound like: a ring that can hold pictures or items like a locket. They are unique, functional, and stylish! Although they aren’t “close to your heart” like a locket necklace may be, I think that locket rings are even more dear because they are so easily accessible and visible to the wearer. Instead of fumbling with clasps and metal chains getting caught in your hair, locket rings slip off easily for close inspection or to show others what treasures are inside. In fact, you don’t necessarily have to take the ring off to admire the contents. You could ooh and ahh at your locket ring from arms distance like you would diamonds on an engagement ring (since your pictures are no doubt just as valuable).
But pictures aren’t the only thing you could keep in these rings. Though lockets are traditionally for photos, some have enough space inside to fit a plethora of tiny treasures. Personally, I like to collect small wild flowers whenever I go on a walk and preserve them for a few days inside my locket ring. Depending on what kind of flower, sometimes they will get nicely pressed and sometimes there is enough space to keep their volume. Either way looks beautiful and makes me smile thinking of when I put them in there. Another idea is to put a little note inside. Cut out a small piece of paper, jot down an inspirational phrase, and keep it safe inside your ring. You can take it out and read it whenever you need a pick-me-up. You could even write a little reminder to store inside. I know I’m always forgetting things and writing them on my hand to remember. With a locket ring, just stick that reminder inside and I guarantee you won’t forget or lose it!
The best part about locket rings is that you could wear as many as your fingers will allow! You don’t have to choose between a locket ring with pictures or flowers or a note. You could have all three or more! With all the different styles and shapes that Locket Warehouse offers, you could have fun mixing and matching different rings for a new look every time. The rings are adjustable too, so they’ll fit on any finger you want. Check out our selection of locket rings by clicking here. Remember, we also offer a photo insertion service if you want to have your pictures perfectly sized and inserted for your ring. I hope you come to love your locket ring(s) as much as I love mine!

Beginning in the 19th century, when mass production made them affordable, mourning lockets became popular keepsakes. The trend began, after the death of British Prince Albert in 1861. Queen Victoria wore black clothing and matching mourning jewelry for decades, until her death in 1901.
Mourning lockets typically contain something that is closely associated with the deceased, such as a lock of their hair, a piece of fabric from their clothing, or a photograph.
The carved jet locket pictured, was made in Australia between 1877 and 1890. In America, mourning lockets were most popular during the Civil War, due to the loss of so many soldiers. Often, just before going to war, a soldier would leave behind a lock of his hair, in the event that he did not return home.
Both men and women wore mourning lockets. Men typically wore simple designed lockets under their clothing, while women opted for a more stylish locket that they wore outside their clothing.
Whether a locket is hidden or shown proudly, it is generally worn close to a person’s heart. With its secret compartment, it is a hidden remembrance to hold their loved ones near to them both physically and spiritually.

Lockets have always been keepsake gifts for special occasions, like Mother’s Day, a wedding, the birth of a baby and of course, Valentine’s Day. Our belief is that a locket, when presented to a loved one, carries with it a universal message….I love you…
Another dimension to a locket, which adds meaning to the gift, is to have it engraved. You can engrave it with either the person’s initials or a special sentiment, or perhaps a date or special saying. An engraved piece of jewelry adds a personal touch to the gift. An engraved locket, a personalized locket, brings the message home – this gift is special, just for you!

The beauty of a locket is that it has a secret compartment where you can keep a photo or tiny keepsake close to your heart. The photo may be of your wedding day, your baby, your pet, a loved one who has passed on. Some of our customers put an image or token into their locket that helps them focus on their intention or life’s purpose. This has the effect of moving them faster toward their goal.
A locket may contain a picture of a serene landscape, helping you create a more peaceful day. When things get too hectic you look at the picture, hold the locket and feel the calm wash over you. Some intentions are not photos, but small treasures – sand from a favorite location, pine needles, a piece of glass -whatever sparks the imagination and helps you keep your eye on the target.
Enter our contest by telling us what you would keep in your locket’s secret compartment. Send us your image, share with us the idea behind the image.
After all entries are in, we will begin the voting phase where you will have the opportunity to vote for your favorite image. Winner receives a locket, of their choosing, valued up to $100, with their image enclosed.

Cheryl and John Miller’s five year old son, Adam, died in a car accident in 2008, involving a distracted driver. Up until now, only signs involving alcohol related collisions could be posted on highways in Illinois. Today, thanks to the Millers, that has changed. The sign that was posted on Naperville/Plainfield Road in DuPage County reads “Reckless Driving Costs Lives”. It memorializes their son and also helps to remind drivers not to multi-task when driving. Texting and fiddling with their GPS should be done when their car is parked on the side of the road, not when they are driving it.
As Cheryl touches the locket around her neck, holding a picture of her late son, she reminds us “Please do not be a distracted driver, for the love of Adam”
