Locket necklaces offer a sense of nostalgic, vintage-esque appeal, and not only because they hold on to our favorite photos (keeping memories and loved ones literally close to your heart at all times) but also because of their quintessentially sentimental and of course, infinitely giftable sensibility. While locket necklaces have been a popular accessory for centuries, their inherent, everlasting charm has most certainly endured over the years, but now the timeless jewelry piece is back with vengeance as one of the moment’s biggest accessory trends.

Neither too flashy nor too simple, the timeless jewelry piece is as versatile as a golden chain watch—you can dress it up or down to match for your business casual officewear lineup or pair them with a flirty floral maxi dress for an extra feminine vibe. Not only are they both classic and modern at the same time, but they also double as cute fashion statement (especially when they’re heart-shaped, in my humble opinion)—regardless of whether or not there’s actually a photograph or two placed inside of it. Ahead, we’ve lined up a few of our favorite locket necklaces to add a hint of romanticism to your current jewelry collection.
