Earlier this year I was lucky enough to marry my best friend, and it was a happy and love filled day. If you have been a long term reader of Beauty and Lace, you would know how much we adore the Oh My Giddy Aunt online store. Over the years the owner, Nikki has become a virtual online friend as well as being an inspiring business women – and my special day would not have been quite the same without a piece from her store.
With a simple, knee length white lace wedding dress I needed something to add some glamour and the piece I chose was a beautiful heart shaped locket in 9ct yellow gold. As you can see by the following image it has embossed scroll work with a plain back:
I love the vintage style, I was even asked on the day if it was handed down from my mother as it really looks like something worth cherishing through the generations. It was certainly a stand out piece, and I kept my earrings minimal.
I paired this with a beautiful gold chain, as you can see here:
To add to the vintage glam of this heart shaped locket, it does actually open up allowing you to place a precious photograph inside:
If you like, Oh My Giddy Aunt can even personalise the back for you with hand engraving services available. The yellow gold really stands out with a traditional and stylish effect – but if gold isn’t for you this also comes in rose or white gold. While I went for the larger size, this is also available in a smaller design if you prefer.
I am so glad I could wear this on my wedding day (and beyond), as it is something you don’t see every day. The Oh My Giddy Aunt online store has recently had a makeover and is packed with pieces just like this one – with something for every occasion.
This has an RRP of $345.95 and you can find out more about the product here. A big thank you to Nikki and Oh My Giddy Aunt for being part of my day, I highly recommend them for quality and service – and something a little unique!
