The Momento Pearl Is Reinventing The Locket

Lockets are meant to store precious memories, an occasion or person that shouldn’t be easily forgotten. But in a digital world, the locket hasn’t gotten much of a redesign – until now.

Galatea has created The Momento Pearl, a modern locket that digitally stores pictures, audio, or text. Using an app, you can record a message on a high-tech ‘pearl’ that can be played on any NFC-enabled smartphone.

The app looks simple, and the concept is brilliant. The question is whether the technology will be around as long as a picture in a locket.

However, it could be worth a try since the sterling silver necklaces start at $130. If a sterling silver necklace doesn’t sound appealing to you, the company is also putting the technology into various materials and styles, including rings and earrings.

Their Kickstarter campaign was successfully funded last week, with the original shipment scheduled to go out in time for Mother’s Day (awwww). They’ll also be sold on pearls.com later this year.
