Give InKind is pleased to feature With You Lockets this holiday season. Give InKind staff was drawn to the With You line because the seed of the company's very founding grew from love. Since its inception, With You has evolved into a unique, diverse, and high-quality line of heirloom jewelry. With You combines artistry with quality - even still being mindful of different budgets. With You designers drew their original inspiration from vintage lockets - and then added a dash of the modern. The result is a collection of lockets that capture all the fine details and workmanship of a family heirloom in contemporary shapes and sizes.
The With You line is comprised of necklaces, bracelets (that can be converted to anklets for a wedding day), cufflinks, and a cocktail ring - all with a place to insert a special photo, quote or note.
We are especially excited to introduce a line of lockets designed by the extraordinary children who receive invaluable services at the Astor Services for Children and Families. The proceeds of the sales of the lockets from this collection are being donated to continue and improve the programs offered there
With You pieces are made of the finest sterling silver, with a mix of semi-precious and precious stones. Like the people they honor, they are something to be cherished.
Mikki Glass, Founder of With You began the company after the death of her father. As Mikki reflected on his death and navigated her grief, she was continually struck by the moments he would miss. Three years after he died, Mikki's sister was engaged to be married and Mikki set out to find a way to have their father included in the ceremony. In this spirit, Mikki created an anklet with a locket and tucked his photos inside so he too could walk down the aisle with his daughter.
Mikki then wore the anklet on her own wedding day and soon began making them for friends and family. And with this, With You was born.
Says Mikki: "My lockets are filled now with not only my father but my husband, my daughter, my friends - even my dogs and cats. Those I hold dear to my heart and who remind me daily how very lucky we all are to be surrounded by unconditional love."
Mikki's husband, Troy Haley, is the company's CEO, following 24 years of service in the U.S. military, where he specialized in Operations and Training Management. Troy has led With You to partnerships with more than 150 retailers, Amazon, HSN and more.
Why We Love This Product: We love With You lockets because the line is accessible, beautiful, custom, and grew from love. All of these qualities are reflected in each piece - but there is something radiant about the last of these. Love. All the employees of With You treat each request with the greatest respect and seek to provide customers with a uniformly outstanding experience. Customers select one of many beautiful pieces, supply a photo and receive their custom locket containing the picture. This is a beautiful way to remember and to celebrate in equal measure. These pieces make wonderful remembrance jewelry - but they are equally perfect for all milestones based in love - such as graduations, births, and more.
What to Express in Your Card: I celebrate the love this piece evokes.
