Step 1: Select a Floating Locket

Build a Floating Locket


Start by selecting the floating memory locket that is best for the amount of charms you’ll want to include. Each of our floating locket necklaces fits with our unique floating locket chain selection. Most choose a matching ball station chain, and our floating locket bracelets come with the link chain or the leather wrap, depending on which style you choose.

Spilled Glitter carries a wide range of styles in floating locket charms, including Animal & Pet Charms, Faith & Cause Charms, Family & Friends Charms, Characters, Flowers, Food & Drink, Career & Hobby, Holiday Charms, Letters & Numbers, Love & Wedding Charms, Sports & Events Charms, Travel & Season Charms, and Birthstone & Accent Stones. Build your floating locket charm collection with the things that are most important to you. Make sure to mix up colors, metals, and stones for the best look!

Step 3: Locket Window Plates & Plate Rings

Add Floating Locket Window Plates

After you’ve chosen your charms, you might want to check out our collection of accent floating locket plates and rings to compliment your charms! Capture a special moment or meaning within your locket with a locket plate or ring plate. The plate sits in the back, behind your charms which will float around on top and make a beautiful statement. Always make sure to choose a plate size that fits within your locket, and do not be afraid to mix and match. Large back plates look amazing with smaller plates and charms mixed in front.

Step 4: Dangles & Pendants

Add Floating Locket Dangle Pendants & Charms


If you’d like to continue accessorizing your locket, shop our amazing HUGE selection of custom and hand made floating locket dangles to accentuate your style! Dangles are basically pendants that have clasps on the end to link onto your chain. They also look great on bracelets and other necklaces without your locket! Wear them alone or bunch them all together for a fabulous style that is sure to get tons of compliments!

Step 5: Locket Chains

Choose Floating Locket Chains


Lastly, choose a chain or two to wear with your floating locket. If you’ve chosen dangles for your locket, we recommend choosing a longer chain, or one with a loop on the end to connect your dangles, which allows multiple dangles to be attached. Choose the length based on your personal preference. We carry a wide range of floating locket chain styles, from Rolo chains to Ball Station Chains, in lengths ranging from 32″, 24″, 22″, and 18-20″. We recommend choosing a smaller chains for younger girls.
