Just one look. That's all it will take for you to fall in love with museum and gallery-exhibited photographer Monica Rich Kosann's Image Locket Case Necklace from The Fine Art of Family.
It's simple, stunning, and oh-so-beautiful.
Granted, it's a bit on the pricey side (at $165.00) for a sterling silver bauble, but keep in mind that Kosann's jewelry collection is much-sought after by the Hollywood Mommy set. (Katie Holmes has one of Kosann's necklaces in sterling silver and in gold and Madaonna and Eva Longoria keep images of loved ones close with Kosann's jewelry, too.) And perhaps even more importantly, the locket is certainly heirloom-quality and meant to be passed down to the next generation.
The Image Case Necklace is meant to be worn with the image down, close to your heart. What is left for the world to see is a beautifully detailed floral pattern, which happens to be the signature of The Fine Art of Family. Measuring 1 3/8'' X 1'' and hanging from a black silk cord, the locket is big enough to be noticed and yet small enough to be wear anytime, with anything.
One lucky winner will have the chance to add this incredible piece to their wardrobe. That's right, I am crazy enough to part with this and share this locket with one of my readers.
