I’m sure that, lately, we have all been thinking about the ones we love and this year, for me, both Valentine’s Day, Mothers Day and every ‘lockdown birthday’ will be especially poignant. I’m also making sure to support British brands like LOVELOX who offer a beautiful range of jewellery made here in the UK.
LOVELOX specialises in lockets handmade from precious metals like gold (including rose gold) and silver with embellishments such as diamonds or gems. They can be personalised with an engraved message on the outside and your own personal photos inside. They make a truly lovely gift or keepsake.
I have been gifted a Lovelox solid 925 sterling silver heart locket and I have one to give away to one lucky reader.
How to order your LOVELOX locket
Ordering is easy. Simply select your locket and, if you would like to add an engraved message just enter this on the web form and select the typeface you would like (Sans-Serif, Times or Script).
My message is 11 characters but LOVELOX says that messages are generally 10 characters over 3 lines depending on the size of the locket you choose. You’ll get a preview of how your message will look on the locket so you can check whether it fits and amend it if need be.
Next, choose two photos to upload. The online editor is easy. Just move the photos around to ensure they sit as you want them to in the locket. Again, you are shown your changes every step of the way.
Then choose a chain – either 16-18 inch or an adjustable 20 – 24 inch solid silver chain.
Delivery costs £4.94 and takes 3-5 working days to the UK or £7.95 for 2 working days to the UK. International delivery is also available.
My locket arrived in a beautifully presented white gift box and is of excellent quality. I am a fan of simple, classic jewellery that lasts and this is a piece to treasure. To give you an idea of size, the locket is 18mm in width at the widest part and 18mm in height.
The front of my locket is polished and the engraved message is on the back. I found the catch easy to open and the reproduction of the photographs is clear.
I chose the message ‘Love Endures’ because it has a double meaning. Love can last forever but sometimes love also means that we have a lot to endure – especially at the moment.
I chose the longer chain which is made of solid silver and adjustable. Whilst it looks dainty, it is quite strong and I liked that the clasp size is sensible for those of us with bigger fingers – especially important when putting your jewellery on without assistance!
The basic price of the Lovelox Silver Heart locket is £60 and there are small additional charges for engraving (£7) and photo inclusion (£9 for one £13 for two) – so £80 in total.
LOVELOX offer a wide range of lockets and as well as hearts, you’ll find oval and round lockets with gorgeous designs in 18 carat yellow and rose gold plated on silver. The company uses skilled craftspeople who expertly set gems and diamonds within the lockets by hand using traditional methods, as well as artistically engraving patterns into the surface of the lockets to create decorative designs.
