Thoughts on this locket

I've been looking for a contemporary locket for sometime. This has gone into sale, £110. Thoughts? Is it still a bit frumpy looking or have I found the one.

I do like it but don't always gave the best judgement with jewellery. It's silver with black ruthium coating and lapis lazuli stone. By Astley Clarke...

I love it! Shame Xmas has gone ��.

I don't think it's dreadful.

What sort of jewellery does the person like? Do they go for engraved? fancy? plain? chunky? delicate? silver? gold?

Wear clothes from COS, Jaeger and like jewellery pieces that are classic with a contemporary style.

Don't like it, sorry. Expensive too.

I hate how visible the hinge is.

Really like it - nice and chunky size with clean lines. Think it will be better in the flesh so order it and return if you need to

I like it.

Have a look at Heather Scott's website. Some nice ones on there for around that price range.

I like it when I look at the two close-ups but it doesn't seem to look attractive on the model's neck. Also, nice as it is, it sort of reminds me of a high quality free gift, like the kind of free gift Thierry Mugler would do, especially with that little blue stone.

Don't like the stone. Makes it look cheap imo

Not what you're looking for but very pretty and very different:
Jools (you can get it at John Lewis but I can't seem to open their site in my browser just now) does some lovely pendants...

Don't like that glitter ball thing at all, sorry.

Thank you for this. I think I may wait to find an alternative! Just so hard to find a locket that isn't too twee or catalogue bought looking. Perhaps I should save up and commission one from an art school student....

What about a ball locket on a longer chain, something like this? I think the proportions on the one you linked aren't right - the chain is too short for the size of the locket.

This is what I would get if I won the lottery!

Sorry but that evil eye one makes all of the others look really tasteful in comparison!

Is there any particular reason why it has to be a locket? Whistles and Cos both do nice bracelets, for example, although obviously they are not silver.

Spider... that reminds me of stuff I saw with my granddad when I went with him to car boot sales in the 1980s when I was a kid. How can something so £££ look so cheap? Sorry...

There's obviously nothing new under the sun. I love Victorian silver and this is very like a Victorian sovereign holder!
