As far back as in the Victorian era, locket pendants were a distinct way to keep an item, usually one that had a significant personal meaning, close to you. I love’ is the message the locket sends. Or maybe more accurately, ‘I loved’. Even today, we understand that lockets are a way to show fidelity to someone who is no longer by our side, regardless whether the loss occurred through death or simply through the general isolation of modern life. The simplest word. To remember. To keep an overheard word or a conversation that touch us, make us and protect us.
