Carpe Diem (Seize the Day) Poesy Secret Message Locket Necklace

Carpe Diem (Seize the Day) Poesy Secret Message Locket Necklace


An empowering secret message locket necklace inspired by centuries old poesy rings that were given as wedding rings or tokens of friendship and affection, that contained hidden messages only known to the wearer and bestower.   

This vintage style secret message locket is hand-wrought from sterling silver and adorned with a filigree design that surrounds a beautiful purple amethyst, a gemstone that promotes peace and courage.
