Prynne (Lock Necklace)

17 reviews
Chain Type:

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."

I love this little lock necklace and everything I’ve purchased from Hey June! I’ve quickly acquired quite the collection!

Cute as heck, but design is slightly flawed

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!


Hey June

Thank you so much for this advice for customers! Great things to be aware of. I wear mine on the 18" and it doesn't flip at all- possibly something we will change in the product description so customers know to go a bit longer to avoid flipping. Thank you Lauren! -Bonnie

Cute but…

I love Hey June items.. I have plenty! This lock necklace was so cute, couldn’t pass it up. But the way it is mounted, it does flip around a lot. See picture posted.. when moving, it flips and sometimes can’t even see it. Again, so cute.. just a bummer.

Hi Kelly! Yes, when tugged Prynee can flip around a little. We recommend a bit more length to avoid the flipping. The extender is a great way to give it extra length and then we have found it sits real pretty!

Love it!

I love my Prynne necklace! I got it almost a week ago (super fast shipping) and haven’t taken it off yet. If I do, my teen daughter will “borrow” it and I’ll never get it back!


Hey June

Don't take it off! You can never trust to get anything back from daughters!
