Lockets are a centuries old tradition – a pendant or amulet in which you can keep a tiny memento or photo of someone you love, close to your heart. Hundreds of years ago, lockets often contained locks of hair, tiny hand painted portraits, and even bits of cloth soaked in perfume to combat the ripe aromas of passersby on the streets. As time passed, lockets gave way to more traditional photo inserts. Gold lockets for women are still prized today, with many carrying great sentiment for the wearer. They’ve even spawned a whole new genre of jewelry called cremation jewelry, (we’ll save that for a later post,) in which one carries a tiny vial of ashes from a loved one, or even a pet.

If you’re shopping for antique gold or sterling silver lockets, you can expect to pay a hefty price for them, as they are often adorned with gemstones and pearls. If you find one at an antique fair, you might be lucky enough to score one of those amazing tiny paintings inside, which were often commissioned from the most highly renowned artists of the day.

Today’s lockets are creative, beautiful and more affordable than ever, so if you’re looking to buy a special gift for your grandmother, mother or even yourself, you can find something that will be a perfect fit. While heart lockets and other heart necklaces flood the market, many of today’s gold lockets are more fashion forward, with cool shapes, and patterns that look ultra-contemporary. In this post, we’ve included a wide variety of gold lockets, including a few special selections at the end that are purely fun fashion options, and are super affordable. So if you’re looking to give someone a special reminder of you, that they’ll cherish for years, and pass down for generations to come, here are our Top 10 Best Gold Locket Necklaces.

Best Solid Gold Lockets


6. 14k Yellow Gold Scroll Oval Locket

Jewelry Pot

If you’re looking for a solid gold locket that’s also a statement piece, the big beauty is a winner. At nearly 1.5 inches long, it’s great for hanging on a 20 or 24 inch chain (which isn’t included with this piece.) The beautiful swirling scrolls on the face of this locket evoke thoughts of flowers, leaves and vines. Inside, the locket is capable of holding two photos at once. Because it’s a bigger, bolder pendant, you might want to consider a sturdier 14K gold rope chain or box chain. A smaller 14K white gold oval locket would be perfect for a more petite woman, but it’s still equally as beautiful. If you’re really looking to spoil yourself or your special lady, the 14K Yellow Gold Oval Diamond Locket is gorgeously etched with flowers and leaves, and features a beautiful blossom centerpiece studded by a glittery diamond.

Price: $236.99

Pictures On Gold

This solid 14K yellow gold locket has the old world charm of something you’d expect to see from Europe in the last century. Inset on the locket face is a magnificent hand-carved blue and white cameo featuring the sweet image of a beautiful mother snuggling close to her tiny child, almost like a modern day Madonna. This lovely pendant would be the perfect gift for a new mother to cherish her first picture of her baby. It’s one inch long, and would look beautiful hanging right at the nape of the neck, so a 16 inch chain would be a pretty accent to include. You can also get this beautiful locket in 14K white gold as well. A gold and cameo heart locket is another pretty option, as is angel cameo gold locket.

Bonyak Jewelry

Big, bold and beautiful, this 14K gold swivel locket is as impressive as they come. The ornate bale acts as a frame around the rectangular locket, which is embellished with a pretty floral design. This piece is unusual and would be best worn by someone who loves to set their own personal style standards with jewelry that’s unique and different. The locket itself swivels 360 degrees, so the two photo frame inside can be shown from any direction. Another large, vintage style heart locket features two layers of 14k gold on the front. The triple heart pattern, which is played out with a heart shaped bale, has a beautiful underlayer in deep pink, with an openwork gold layer embellished with diamonds on top.
