When it comes to jewellery, if it isn’t flashy statement costume jewellery then I like what I’m wearing to mean something. I only have two pieces of jewellery that are constant in my wardrobe, and they’re both bracelets.
When I was younger I used to wear a gold locket which had a picture of my grandad in, as the style became dated I started to wear the necklace less and less until its now just held in my jewellery box for sentimental purposes.
Venus With Love contacted me a couple of weeks ago about reviewing one of their new lockets which I would describe as a Pandora bracelet in necklace form. The premise is that you buy an empty clear fronted locket, and you can buy charms to fill the locket with so that it becomes personal to you.
I was asked to send through to Venus HQ my birthdate, areas of interest, my personality type and was then sent a locket modelled on these choices.
The emerald birth stone of May, my initial (C), music, love, luck, xoxo for romance – these all symbolise my personality perfectly.
There’s the option to buy more charms for your locket until its filled, for example I’ve seen that you can buy charms to celebrate life events like babies, weddings, interests – photography, shoes, handbags and a whole host of others- think of it like a charm bracelet for your neck.
I love ideas such as this, I never really “got” the Pandora bracelets, they’re just not my scene at all. I’ve bought a new chain for my Venus locket so that it hangs lower as I found the locket too big for my decolletage, other than that I love it.
