Britta Ambauen's handmade locket is a wearable tribute to the nurturing power of motherhood. Composed of two sterling silver hemispheres, the locket slides open to reveal the inscription "from deepest roots, tallest branches grow." The front is carved with an elegant "tree of life" motif representing a mother's expansive, embracing devotion to her kin. The tree protects up to four birthstones representing the children or grandchildren that grow from your family tree. Handmade in Seattle, Washington.

I bought this necklace as a Christmas gift for my mother. I was very excited because this is just the type of gift. When it arrived I was very impressed with the quality of the necklace and teh tree. They were very weel made and beautiful. However, when I opened it to see the stones I was very disappointed. The stones were different sizes and of very,very low quality - think of those cheap birthstones you see in gift stores. I did not expect the highest quality stone but more than what what actually put in this necklace.

              I liked the idea of this for my mom. She is older and difficult to buy for. I decided to include stones for her to children and spouses, total of four stones. The quality of the charm and chain is good. Four charms look like all that will fit and still have the top lay nicely on top. My mom is heavy set so I am not sure the length of the chain will work. Not all the monthly stones are clear. The solid ones are not nearly as attractive. In my case July (ruby) was solid and December. For the price paid, it would have been nice to have them all clear colors.
