Rooted in the idea that every woman has a story to tell, Lumière Lockets were born out of a decade-long friendship between Ariel and Taylor. The two discovered they shared a love for vintage jewels and instantly realized they wanted to partner to make an updated version of the classic locket. Designed for today’s modern girl on the go, these solid gold lockets are embellished with soft scallops that feel both playful and timeless… perfect for carrying your most cherished memories close to you daily. For another layer of personalization, you also have the option of adding a hand engraved feminine script to the back, creating a piece that is truly made for you.
“I was given my first locket at 16. I still have it today and cherish it. I love the idea of keeping what’s special to you close to your heart. My family has always loved vintage pieces and I’ve searched for the perfect vintage locket for years. Then, one night over a glass of wine with my good friend and jewelry designer Ariel Gordon, we decided to join forces and make our dream locket. This is a special piece for today’s modern woman who loves classic jewelry. I hope it will be passed down for generations.”
“As I grow older and weave my way through things, I keep experiencing pivotal milestones in my life that I want to commemorate (my wedding, the birth of my kids, the passing of loved ones). I feel like these lockets are the perfect evolution and expansion of what AGJ is known for – personalized, handmade jewelry that is meant to be worn daily and reflect those you love most. I’m no longer limited to a monogram or a line of poetry. Now I can wear actual images of my family close to me. Partnering with Taylor was such a treat. She lives in the Bay (my new found home) and it’s a true full circle moment for us – the Glitter Guide was one of the first interviews I ever did almost a decade ago! Taylor really is the sweetest. She has the best taste. She loves vintage jewels. We moved through the various stages of inspiration, design, sampling, and production very quickly and naturally. I’m also really proud that we figured out how to make these from scratch, by hand, in LA. From a sourcing and production standpoint, this is no small feat and I’m so proud of my team that we were able to make such high-quality jewelry at such a palatable price point.”
