Fortune's Cool

Words matter. Especially the words that "randomly" appear in your fortune cookie and mysteriously seem to sum up everything about life and advise you of what you need to be mindful of. No way are you ever throwing this one away. Gretel Going's charming gold-dipped brass locket gives your tiny slip of wisdom a stylish spotlight, and lets you keep those inspiring words close to the heart. It comes with the message "If it's supposed to be, it will"—easily replaced when another unforgettable fortune comes along. Handmade in New York.

New York City-based Gretel Going came up with the idea for her jewelry collection after sticking a fortune cookie message behind a magnet on her fridge, only to find that it kept falling onto the kitchen floor.


She began surveying her family and friends to see if they, like her, also held onto their fortunes. Without fail, everyone had one that meant something to them—and everyone stored them a horrendous place: in purse pockets and wallets, taped to light switches or computers, stuffed in sock drawers.

Gretel connected with a jeweler who offered to teach her everything she knew, and it was then that she got the idea for lockets that would also hold fortunes. These lockets, along with a collection of fortune cookie jewelry, have since become the line’s signature pieces.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Open Window Fortune Locket:

    Answered above. I have discarded the chain and put the pendant on a slim gold collar, often with other charms--creating a charm necklace, if you will. I would like to suggest another product to creator Greta, one that I think would appeal to many people.
