It is hard to believe it, but as we head out to the stores, it is clear, Valentines Day will be here soon! I get excited for all of the holidays, and Valentines Day is one that I adore! True, the chocolate and flowers do help make the holiday more enticing, but I think one thing that I look forward to is the jewelry. I mean, aside from my birthday, Mothers Day and our anniversary, it is one day that my husband finds a gift to give me that is usually in the form of jewelry! One thing that I have always found to make for a great Valentines gift, regardless of who it is for, is a locket. A locket to hold memories, whether it be for a wife, daughter, best friend, mother or sister, it seems like a locket can mean a lot more than just being another piece of jewelry. Recently I was given the chance to design and review a custom locket of my own from Pictures On Gold.
I found this to be a great and very fitting gift to give this Valentines Day to my younger sister. This year, a few days after Christmas, my sister’s boyfriend of 9 years, finally popped the question and asked her to be his wife. This is something that we have been waiting on for a very long time, and even though they are newly engaged, we have considered her now fiance to be a part of our family for many years. So, when I was asked to create and review a locket from Pictures On Gold, I was very excited! I knew that this locket would make for a great Valentines/Engagement gift for my little sister. The design process was very easy, and I liked that through out the process, I was able to preview what I was creating. I chose to add a piece of clipart to use on the front of the locket from the Love/Hearts category, which was very suiting to the occasion. Then on the inside of the locket, I had 2 pictures of my sister and her fiance laser engraved. Uploading and placing the pictures was easy, and I was able to size them to fit the lockets as well! I had contemplated having custom text engraved on the back, but when I came across the quote, “Once in a while, Right in the middle of an ordinary life, Love gives us a fairy tale.” I knew I had to have it put on the back. I am glad I went with this quote because once my sister saw it, she said that this would be their quote for the wedding! Once I had completed the design of the locket, I was able to pick out a chain for the locket, then once again preview the entire locket before ordering. I liked being able to see the completed product before ordering, that way, if there was anything I wanted to change, I could do so. When it arrived, both my sister and I were pleased with the finished product. I like that when I choose to make a special gift, I can head on over to Pictures On Gold and know that I will get exactly what I want, and make the piece original for whomever I make it for! So this Valentines Day, as you are trying to figure out what to give that special somebody, stop looking and head on over to Pictures On Gold and build your own locket today! Well, the wonderful people from Pictures On Gold would like to give one of my amazing readers a Valentines Day gift by giving them a custom built locket!
