Gold pendants are one of the oldest forms of jewellery known, however, despite this, they are still increasingly popular in society today. One form of pendant that is especially increasing in popularity is that of the locket. A locket is a pendant that opens up to reveal a space which is then used to store a photograph or small item, such as a lock of hair. As with gold pendants, lockets are generally worn on chains around the neck. Due to the sentimental nature of the pendants, many choose to place a photo of the person who gave them the jewellery inside.
