This silver locket is a wearable reminder that "though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not." A poetic gift for an avid traveler or someone who means the world to you, Britta Ambauen's design features a small world globe in two hemispheres that open and close with gravity, revealing the quotation and a placid, faceted blue chalcedony gemstone inside. The locket allows the wearer to carry a reminder of the virtues of simplicity and beauty on her journeys - whether physical or spiritual. Handmade in Austin, Texas.

      My mom got this necklace for me for Christmas before I left on a month long trip to Africa. It's probably my favorite gift I've ever recieved because it is so unique and meaningful to me. My mom even typed up the quote inside on a seperate little paper and tucked it inside the gift box. My friend I was travelling with loved it so much that I am now here on the site ordering her one for her birthday next month :-)

          Comments about GLOBE LOCKET:

          I purchased this for my 18 year old daughter who is currently spending a gap year in Central America. She loves all things about travel and much prefers a meaningful gift over a room full of clothes. She loves this necklace and wears it everyday. I hesitated because it is pricey and they don't offer free shipping. I'm so glad I went ahead with this purchase. It didn't come with the explanation in the catalog so I printed the info about the Emerson quote. I also researched the stone inside and included information about that with the gift. Made it even more meaningful for my daughter.

              I think it is a great idea and thought it would be a wonderful gift for my 19 year old daughter developing a love of travel. But it is hard to see the globe on the exterior unless you stand under a light. And the chain is very cheap-seeming for such an expensive necklace. I haven't decided whether to return it or not. Again, I LOVE the design and idea of it.

              Loved the sentiment behind the locket and it was perfect for my daughter who is always traveling to exotic locales. Was so disappointed in the non-distinct etching on the outside. The globe looked like a plain silver ball, could hardly see the map at all and the words etched on the inside were also not very clear. My daughter loved it too but since the etching was barely noticeable we sent it back.

                    Britta Ambauen's globe necklace is certainly beautiful at first glance, but take a closer look and you'll see that it's even more special! The globe opens to reveal a special poem and a blue gemstone. Do you love this worldly design?
