Review - Let Make Your Valentine's Day a Most Memorable One

17 Since Valentine's Day is right around the corner, you may already be wondering what to give that someone special.  In my opinion, personalized jewelry tops the list for wonderful and sentimental gift giving ideas.  It's a timeless treasure that will forever remind that certain someone of just how much you care.  Call me old-fashioned, but I still believe lockets to be the epitome of classic personalized jewelry.

Thankfully, has a myriad of lockets available and ready for customization.  They even take the time to send you a locket which already has your most precious photos tucked neatly inside...using color laser engraving!  I had the chance to customize a Sterling Silver Heart Locket just right for Valentine's Day, and if you're the lucky winner of this giveaway, you will too.  Keep reading to learn more!

I reviewed the Sterling Silver Heart "Valentine" Photo Locket, along with an 18 inch Sterling Silver Box Chain, from which retails for $249.00.

LocketImagine your favorite photos and picture keepsakes engraved permanently on a 14K gold or sterling silver custom photo jewelry.  At, they take your cherished pictures and have them laser engraved onto the photo jewelry of your choice. even adds a protective jewelry enamel to every color laser pendant to ensure that each day your charm will look as beautiful as the day you took it out of the box.

I had the chance to completely customize a sterling silver heart locket and took this opportunity to make an amazing motherhood locket for my own mom's birthday.  Not only could I select one favorite photo to have color laser engraved inside, I also got to add a special birthday greeting on the other side.

Personalized Photo Locket

Now, I don't have to worry about going to the photo lab or to my computer, then trying to shrink down my favorite pictures and print them off, so that I can insert them inside the locket. took care of that part for me and in such a unique way that I find myself opening this locket and showing off the pictures quite often.  No one can believe that now photos can actually be laser engraved inside a piece of photo jewelry...and in color too!

Sterling Silver Heart Valentine Photo Locket

Although the laser engraving looks great on the inside of the locket, unfortunately, I wasn't as thrilled with two portions of this locket.  First, the outside of the locket does not look like it does in the photo on their website.  While I thought the red rose and hearts would look as though they were applied directly to the outside of the sterling silver heart, instead the outer portion of the locket looks like some sort of pale enamel and not silver.  This enameled look detracts from the beauty of the silver itself, in my opinion.

Sterling Silver Photo Locket

Also, the engraved message on the inside of this locket isn't done well.  There should have been plenty of room on the inside panel to engrave the words "Happy Birthday Mom", but because they didn't give each word of this message its own line, the font is so tiny that it's next to impossible to read.  I know for a fact that my mother will not be able to read this.  Once again, the picture on their website shows the engraved message large and prominent, so I don't understand why what I received didn't look the same.

Photo Locket for Valentine's Day

Other than that, I'm happy with this necklace because I know my mother is going to love it.  These Valentine's Day Lockets look great dressed up with your "little black dress" as well as dressed down with a t-shirt and jeans.  It's a very sentimental piece that will always remind its recipient that they are loved and cherished.  :rose:
