Open Secret


New locket designs don’t hide your keepsake away inside. These transparent designs display it inside a cage or under glass for the world to see. Unlike other fashionable cage designs, these styles have a hinge that allows them to open like a locket. It’s an interesting combination of the concept of the locket and the charm necklace. Some styles provide the treasure, which might be a pavé diamond ball, a diamond-studded branch of coral, or an engraveable plaque. Others allow you to lock your own treasures or pictures inside while keeping them in view, too.
