Your wedding jewelry can be a memorial keepsake

By on Jan. 24th


This necklace actually has a piece of lace from a wedding dress embedded inside resin. It looks lovely, right? The best part is that you could have a piece of your own dress as a keepsake, a piece of someone else's dress (mom's, grandma's, etc.) to wear AT the wedding, or make a few and pass them out as bridesmaids' or mother-of-the-bride gifts. You can snag it from Etsy seller GreenGrassGifts. This got me thinking: what other wedding jewelry could serve as a memorial? Let's check out what we found.

This one would be great for Harry Potter fans (especially those who remember the significance of the snitch in the last book!

I loooove this book-shaped locket. It has spots for two photographs inside.

This vintage-inspired locket actually holds three photos.

This House of Harlowe piece is actually a big cocktail ring locket, which is definitely large enough to hold a good photo.

I know some of you are planning a "until death do us part" wedding and this locket might be just the ticket. Plus, this Etsy seller just has gorgeous lockets in general. Check them out.

This matchbox locket tutorial is technically for a Mother's Day gift, but you could totally translate this into a sweet little DIY project and include anyone's photo that you want to remember. Or forgo the photo and put in a keepsake instead.
