Domed-glass lockets bring a modern twist to traditional jewellery
Singapore, August 06, 2011 – Carrie K. today introduced “Little Loves” Glass Lockets - bringing a contemporary twist to a much-loved accessory. Instead of traditional closed lockets, Little Loves’ domed-glass cover means contents of the lockets can be easily seen – allowing the wearer to express her mood, tastes, and loves.
The silver “Little Loves” lockets are part of MINT, a collection that gives Grandma’s jewellery a fresh twist.
For centuries, lockets have kept precious little things close to wearers: a loved one’s lock of hair, medicine, miniature paintings, and more recently, photographs.
Traditionally, lockets have kept items covered and hidden from the world. To showcase individuality and attitude, Carrie K.’s “Little Loves” lockets have domed glass covers which let wearers show off their favourite photo, piece of art, or even object, more easily. The sterling silver catch swivels so both sides can be shown off and admired.
“It’s a lot more special to carry a real photo or precious item in a locket than to store it as a digital image in a mobile phone,” said Carolyn Kan, Carrie K. founder and designer. “The more creative may wish to express their mood or thoughts through little pictures or messages. “Little Loves” lockets can even serve as a miniature gallery for the artist in every individual.”
The "Little Loves" sterling silver glass locket necklace comes in three shapes- oval, round and square and retails at S$298 each. The lockets are available at Strangelets, a one-stop shopping spot for singularly charming and clever collections of homewares, accessories and jewellery. Strangelets is the latest addition to Carrie K.’s select list of stockists.

1. Measure your fingers at the end of day as your finger size will be different at different times of the day.
Fingers tend swell up during the course of the day as your blood pressure rises.
2. Measure your finger size 3 to 4 times to get a more accurate measure.
3. Your fingers might also swell if you are pregnant or if you are on medication. Take this into account when measuring your fingers.
Here are some tips on how you can measure your finger:
First, cut a cardboard strip measuring 0.5cm wide and 15cm long.
Then, wrap the cardboard around the finger to be sized.
Once it’s done, slide the cardboard up to the knuckle, as the ring must be sized large enough to able to slip off and on, over the knuckle.
Next, use a pen to mark on the cardboard where the long end overlaps.
Measure the mark from the end of the length of paper or string with a ruler.
Locate your ring size by locating your measurement against our size chart.
Should the measurement falls in between two sizes, we recommend that you choose the larger size.
