With just two weeks until Mother’s Day, I need to get serious about finding the perfect gift for my own mom.

We found 6 of the prettiest lockets — so sweet and heartfelt, it might be hard to choose a favorite. But pay attention to lead times for ordering and delivery.

Vintage lockets on Etsy that hold more than secret photos, they hold a secret message.

Clearly we’re having a thing for hidden message keepsake jewelry this week, because first we found the awesome necklaces from Beth Macri, and now I’m crushing on this secret message locket spotted on Etsy.
