  • The Dorothy Locket is named after our Mom's dear friend, Dorothy, and our Aunt Dorothy, too. Our Mom's friend shows up, always. She has a huge laugh, a dry sense of humor, a warm interest in whoever she's talking with. She volunteers, she gets creative in the kitchen, she gave a kidney to her husband, she has her own career, she gardens, she loves so hard. One day, during an intense health emergency with our Mom, I called her and said "Dorothy we need your help" and she'd already made meals and was on her way before I'd even called. She's an incredible woman. The Dorothy Locket symbolizes her understated magnificence. Sturdy and strong always there even if it's more subtle than the rest of the lockets. Our Aunt Dorothy and her family lived in a big farm a couple miles outside of the small town where our maternal grandparents lived in retirement. We spent so much time at her home in the summers, playing "The Stair Game" and basketball int the barn and outdoor games like Seven Steps and Kick the Can. We roamed free on their farm, and it's such a part of our childhood memories.

Silver locket
Written by Sandra Bauman on May 11th 2022

My daughter loved her locket, but she thinks I should have purchased the 28 inch chain instead of the 16 inch chain. Is there a way for her to exchange?

I love it!

This turned out perfectly, and I am so pleased with it!

I LOVE my locket, the photos are beautiful, and the locket is the perfect size. It's dainty but not too small. It was shipped to me quickly and I could not be happier. I will definitely be purchasing another one!

Lockets and bangle
Written by Donna on Jun 10th 2021

I added two of silver Dorothy lockets to a silver Bangle Locket once I had received them as unfortunately adding extra lockets on the bangle is not a service office at the moment by The Locket Sisters. The lockets are beautiful and look fantastic on the bangle. I will be back for more as they are a fantastic keepsake.

Very happy wiht the locket but even happier with the customer serivce. I had so many questions as I gave this as a gift and all questions were answered promptly. Thank you again for your help - you're running a great local business that I've already recommended to other friends.

Even more beautiful than expected
Written by Emily on Apr 19th 2021

The quality of the silver dorothy locket and the images inside is beyond my expectations. I've received many compliments already and have worn it nearly every day since I received it. I couldn't be happier!

Everything came out beautiful! Very well made and shipped even with love. You ladies should have an Etsy shop!! I’m lucky I found you through google but it took a lot of digging! Thank you for the beautiful necklace.
