Piece of the Week: Devon Woodhill’s ‘Goddess’ Locket
It’s the perfect jewel to gift on Mother’s Day.
A locket from Devon Woodhill is just such a present.
The brand specializes in inherently sentimental heirloom jewelry, none more so than its lockets.
With its signature trefoil bale and engraved Florentine finish, clients can customize their Devon Woodhill lockets with engraved initials or diamond and colored gemstone lettering. Filling their lockets with photographs of loved ones is a cinch; simply upload a digital file on the brand’s website.
Possibilities abound for mothers to craft just the personalized jewel for them, but they might consider deferring to designer Melissa Levy’s readymade creations.
Our “Piece of the Week” pick is the “Goddess” locket, thematically appropriate for any woman tasked with nurturing the next generation.
Crafted in 18-karat yellow gold, the locket is set with white diamonds and pink, yellow, and orange sapphires, representing a woman’s past, present, and future.
Also available in 18-karat white and rose gold by special order, the Small Goddess Locket sells for $2,950 on the Devon Woodhill website.
