Jewel of the day: lockets

I adore lockets but I try to find ones that are slightly different and like to wear several at a time on chains of different lengths and types. A few years ago, I missed out on an enamelled locket made to look like a book cover with a tiny magnifying glass on a spring inside when you opened it. That one haunts me. These aren’t quite as elaborate but I like them nonetheless. I was inspired to acquire my first after seeing one of the actresses wear them in Crimes of the Heart. I went into an antique store and the owner told me she only had one and it would be cheaper since it was engraved with an initial. She put it in my hand and when I flipped it over I saw an “E”. Perfect!
