About

Lokett is the first totally customizable locket for today's digital age. The traditional locket necklace is a necklace that holds a physical picture and is given as gifts during holidays like Christmas and Valentine's Day, weddings, and was also used during the mourning period during the Victorian era to remember loved ones. 

We created our modern day version called Lokett. It updates the traditional locket by linking digital images, videos, messages, links, and apps from your necklace to your phone. Just place your necklace on the NFC sensor on your phone, and watch your linked memories appear on your phone's screen. Lokett requires no batteries and is completely water resistant ensuring your memories are protected close to your heart. 

Lokett measures less than 1 inch long from the top of the bail to the bottom of the pendant, making it the perfect size for everyday wear. The measurements above are shown in mm.

The front of Lokett displays an inspirational word or can be personalized to have a name, initials, date, word, or even a custom logo or design engraved.

The back of Lokett contains a luminescent resin layer that protects the NFC tag. It illuminates in the dark to a beautiful blue green glow when charged by light. The longer the back is exposed to light, the longer and more intense the glow.

Functionality:

Lokett uses NFC technology so that whenever you place an NFC enabled phone on your Lokett - it will trigger an activity such as displaying a video or image on your phone, linking to a website address, displaying important contact information, or launching an app. The possibilities are endless! 

Lokett is the perfect keepsake...some of our favorite uses of Lokett:

  • link Lokett to precious videos or photos of your baby's first steps, sonograms, or even baby's first words
  • link Lokett to videos or photos to serve as a memorial to a loved one
  • link Lokett to store important contact information to be worn by your child or for an elderly loved one
  • link Lokett to store romantic poems or a unique proposal 
  • link Lokett to your business url or app and gift them for marketing purposes such as a business launch or promo

There are multiple free NFC apps available in the android marketplace that will allow you to link and personalize your Lokett. One of our favorites is NFC Tools. It takes less than a minute to encode Lokett - giving you ultimate freedom and flexibility!

Lokett uses NTAG216 technology to ensure maximum compatibility and should be fully compatible if your phone has NFC enabled. It is one of the newest tags to be universally compatible and allows you to store 888 bytes of information. To view a list of phones with NFC, please click here

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk is timing. However, we do not foresee any significant delays and have given our very best estimate. Rest assured, we have many years of experience working with jewelry manufacturers and are only working with manufacturers in the US for the production of our necklace. The only thing that is sourced from overseas are the NFC tags.

In the case of extreme demand of our inspirational necklaces, we plan on having multiple molds of the designs produced and have relationships with multiple manufacturers and casting houses that can work in parallel during production. In the case of extreme demand for custom designs and logos, we have relationships with multiple 3d printing companies and even have our own 3d printer in house.
