Jewelry is an essential in my life.  You can always catch me wearing my favorites, but sometimes I switch them out for pieces I haven't worn in a while.  I treasure sentimental jewelry given to me by friends and family, and of course my boyfriend. There's nothing like someone special in your life presenting you with a gorgeous necklace or bracelet. Make sure you keep those items close to your heart.

Pictures on Gold offers personalized jewelry, lockets, and photo lockets.  Their pieces are quality made and created with care. Any item would make a wonderful gift for anybody.  Why not give Grandma a silver locket with pictures of her grandchildren inside for her birthday? A necklace with your child's thumbprint in it would make a wonderful Christmas present for a mom. Your husband would also love a personalized watch with a special message from you engraved on it as an anniversary present.

A locket is something that I've always wanted.  It's known by all that a locket is a special piece of jewelry that contains important pictures inside.  I love the fact that the pictures are hidden and only you know what's inside, unless you show someone.

When I received the chance to review a sterling silver sweetheart photo heart locket, I was very excited.  The locket holds two pictures and I also had an opportunity for an engravement on the back. I browsed my pictures online and finally came up with two pictures of my boyfriend and I that I wanted to use.  I sent in the pictures and asked for my boyfriend and I's name and our anniversary date to be engraved on the back in script.

The shipping was very fast and I received the locket within a few days of placing my order.  When I opened the package, the first thing that I saw was a beautiful black velvet box with a pretty bow around it.

I loved the presentation of the box.  I've received jewelry previously that hasn't been packaged as nicely, so it was nice to see that the necklace was protected during shipping.

Once I opened the box, I absolutely loved what I saw.
Look how beautiful and big the heart locket is! The sterling silver was shiny and gleaming.  It certainly brought a smile to my face.  The locket has some weight to it and the silver chain is a perfect choice for the necklace. I love the way it looks on. It lays flats and I had no issues with the locket twisting or turning either. The clasp was easy to open and close when taking it on and off too. The necklace was not heavy on me at all.  This necklace is really beautiful and something I will truly treasure.

I had no trouble opening the locket and I was able to open it with ease.  Inside, the two pictures of my boyfriend and I were on either side.  I was very impressed with the company.  It's not easy to take two normal, full-sized pictures and shrink them down and have them fit inside a locket. I wanted my pictures to stay in color, rather than be transferred to black and white. The color of the pictures were still very vibrant and easily visible. The camera flash made a glare, but in person the necklace does not look like this.  It's much easier and also a smarter decision to have a company put in pictures for you, rather than trying to make your pictures fit inside a locket by yourself.

On the back was the engravement that I asked for. I loved how the inscription turned out.  The script is gorgeous and I was able to distinguish what it said effortlessly.

The inscription was a little hard to capture in a picture, but you get the idea.  My boyfriend thought the necklace was very thoughtful and he really liked it.  He smiled when I showed him the pictures and the inscription.  This is a necklace that I will wear frequently.  Not only is it a beautiful piece, but it's something meaningful that will be close to my heart when I wear it.

A photo heart locket would be a fantastic Christmas present for your girlfriend or wife this year.  Presenting her with this gift would certainly bring a huge smile to her face, and possibly a tear to her eye as she sees what a thoughtful gift it is.  You can go ahead and take all of the credit for the gift though! :)  Please use the promo code "HOLIDAY12" at checkout for a 10% discount for all orders placed on by December 1st.
