This gorgeous locket is reminiscent of an heirloom piece from the Victorian Era, but the mixed metal finish gives it a modern twist. The locket is formed from oxidized sterling silver with a beautiful matte finish, adorned with a 14 karat rose gold milgrain teardrop. Nestled within the teardrop are ten tiny sparkling white diamonds. The 3/4" by 3/8" locket hangs from a 16" 14 karat rose gold chain. The interior dimensions of the locket are 1/2" by 1/4" - just enough room for a tiny photo of a loved one.
The jewelry line ila & i is a familial labor of love. The brother and sister duo of Ila and Vikas Sodhani bring a rich shared cultural history to their designs, which are informed and inspired by their Indian heritage and their frequent trips to the country. Growing up, Ila and Vikas often visited their ancestral home in Rajasthan, a grand structure that has stood for over 200 years. Each edifice of this building featured intricately carved, ornately decorated surfaces, and the siblings marveled at the inlaid gemstones in its walls and arches. Their appreciation for the beauty of this handiwork, and for the richly creative traditions of their ancestors, inspired the duo to carry on this legacy in the form of intricate, timeless jewelry designs.
