Sentimental, Meaningful Lockets

Dating back to as early as the 16th century, lockets have always been used to represent sentimental meaning. Lockets are pendants which are historically worn containing good luck charms or perfume. Now, lockets make beautiful additions to meaningful necklaces. This striking locket necklace set is available in gold vermeil, sterling silver, or rose gold so you can even tailor the metal to who you're shopping for. This beautiful locket is sure to make a statement when unwrapped. The locket itself is engravable to showcase a special date or a shared phrase. The chain also adjusts to your desired size so it can fit your loved one perfectly. It's a lovely way to send a meaningful message to that special someone.

Chains as The Base for Your Meaningful Necklace

Chain necklaces are the base for creating unique and sentimental necklaces. With silver, gold, and rose gold chains to choose from, you can create the perfect base for your special gift. With multiple types of chain to choose from including fine chains, snake chains, and link chains, every necklace can be unique. Each has an individual charm and means you can really cater meaningful necklaces to your special friend. If your loved one likes a more statement piece of jewellery, choose a chunkier chain. If they're a fan of subtle beauty then choose a finer, more delicate chain. If you want to treat your friend with a whole set, you can even pair their necklace with a chain bracelet. No matter what kind of meaningful necklaces you want to find, it all starts with the chain.

Layered Necklaces for When You Can't Decide

Getting a gift for someone that means more to you than just one meaningful necklace? Then layered necklaces are for you! You can choose two, three or even more chains at once for your special gift. Depending on the types of necklaces you choose to layer, you can make sure to combine meaningful necklaces. You could layer an engraved necklace with a personalised pendant necklace for an even more meaningful effect. Choosing different lengths is essential for pulling off this contemporary look, use our how to layer necklaces guide for inspiration. This will allow each meaningful necklace to shine on its own, whilst also creating a cohesive, meaningful message for your special someone.

Special Elegant Choker Necklaces

Made popular in the 90s, choker necklaces are typically between 14 and 16 inches long and sit close against the neck. In recent years this type of necklace has seen a revival and is as popular as ever. Your sentimental gift could have an added element of nostalgia with a meaningful necklace in the style of an elegant choker. Chokers also pair beautifully with an engraved pendant or a statement chain to make a meaningful layered look. Choose from vintage styles, diamond, beaded chokers and more meaningful necklaces to create your sentimental gift.

Contemporary Adjustable Meaningful Necklaces

Adjustable meaningful necklaces make choosing the right sentimental gift even easier. These necklace types allow you to effortlessly change the length of the chain and therefore personalise your gift to your special someone. Adjustable necklaces are a jewellery box essential and they make ideal gifts! Perfect for layering or to wear on their own, an adjustable meaningful necklace will make your jewellery gift even more heartfelt. Tailor the size to your loved one and let them know how much they mean to you. This adjustable fine chain necklace makes choosing a sentimental gift even easier, and makes the gift itself much more special.

Glamorous Beaded Necklaces

Beaded necklaces tend to be a fine line of metal, with small beads spaced along the length. This style is delicate and feminine, gorgeous worn on its own or alongside a meaningful pendant. This triple beaded necklace set showcases the different types of beaded meaningful necklaces. Here, this beaded necklace is a choker featuring patterns of three small beads along it, creating a timeless effect. You can make a meaningful selection by choosing the beaded necklace type that's right for you or the person you're shopping for.
