An individual sterling silver locket necklace featuring a gold or rose gold vermeil bee charm and the option of a semi-precious birthstone.
The popularity of lockets goes from strength to strength as we all look for jewellery which has meaning and is not disposable. At Lime Tree Design we take classic pieces and give them a contemporary twist. This is an ideal locket for someone who likes the idea of a traditional locket but wants a cleaner look. The bee is a charming symbol of home, industry and sweetness and opens with space for two photos inside.
This makes a wonderful present for a special birthday like an 18th, 21st or 30th or a christening or young mum who'd like pictures of her children inside. I've also made these for girlfriends, engagements, wedding presents and a 60th birthday.
The locket can be personalised by engraving and is available with a choice of optional birthstones. You can choose chain style and length.
Locket comes gift boxed.
Locket and chain are made from modern sterling silver. Rub with silver cloth provided to remove any tarnish.
All fittings are sterling silver/925. Do not dip birthstones in silver dip as you will damage the stone.
Standard chain length measures approx 40cm /16". The locket is 2cm long (2.5cm including bail) and 1.5cm wide.
The bee is gold or rose gold vermeil which is 18 carat gold or rose gold plated onto a sterling silver base. It is a surface treatment and will fade over time. Be careful with sun cream or perfumes, take off before swimming or bathing. Do not use metal cleaners on vermeil as you will remove the plate.
