Inspired by the inscriptions found in poesy rings, this unique hidden message necklace resembles a locked box that holds the secret of your heart.
Handcrafted from lightly oxidized sterling silver, the locket’s cover is set with a decorative keyhole and a faceted garnet and tiny key that dangle from the bottom of the necklace. Upon opening the locket, its secret message "tu possedes la cle de mon coeur," French for "you own the key to my heart," is revealed. Locket suspends from a vintage-style 18-inch sterling silver chain by two more garnets.
My secret message lockets hold secret poesy (poetry) messages that are known only to the one who gives it, and to the one who wears it. They are inspired by the popular courtship manners that date back to the 5th through 15th centuries when it became popular for brides and grooms to engrave hidden romantic phrases, on the inside of what were known as poesy rings.
