Prynne (Lock Necklace)
Prynne is a delicate and detailed necklace, with a small lock being the focal point. The lock represents the things we keep closest to our hearts- our treasures, our desires, our loves, our wild hopes that we don't share with just anyone.
All our necklaces are named after powerful female literary characters and writers who pave the road before us. Prynne is named after Hester Prynne from The Scarlet Letter. Prynne is pressured through her whole life to reveal details about her child to her harsh, prying, and punitive community. Instead, she keeps these things safe and close to herself, protecting herself and her daughter in the process. She is her own woman and does not bow down to the pressures around her. Hester Prynne is a woman of strength, wisdom, and clear judgment.
"They said it [the scarlet letter on her chest] meant Able, so strong was Hester Prynne, with a woman’s strength."

At Hey June, all of our necklaces, bracelets, huggies, and hoops are gold-filled or sterling silver pieces! Gold-filled jewelry means that there is a layer of real gold bonded over brass- it is tarnish-resistant and hypoallergenic. These are pieces you can put on and keep on. Gold-filled jewelry gives you the beauty, quality, and durability of solid gold without having to pay for it! Wahoo!
With proper care and handling, your gold-filled or sterling silver piece can give you a very long and happy life! Here are our recommendations for keeping your piece looking pristine!
- Store in an airtight bag when not wearing
- Wipe jewelry off after swimming or lots of exposure to water or other elements.
- Avoid contact with sunscreen, cleaning products with bleach, perfumes, scented lotions, hairsprays, etc. If your piece does have contact with these things, no biggie, just wipe it off as soon as possible.
- Gently clean your piece with water and mild dish soap if it starts to look worn.
- Use a soft anti-tarnishing cloth on your gold-filled or sterling silver piece to remove stubborn dirt.

I bought this necklace on the day it was released and when I got it I absolutely loved it. But I will say that as you wear it, the lock flips around constantly. It’s because of how the chain is mounted to the lock instead of on a jump ring (which is what us customers asked for :) ) customer service was helpful as always when I reached out but I decided to keep it because I like it enough. My girlfriend did buy it as well and hers flips too. But for those buying it, maybe buy the standard chain or possibly a longer length so it doesn’t flip as much! But as always, love Hey June quality!
I love this little lock necklace and everything I’ve purchased from Hey June! I’ve quickly acquired quite the collection!
