HOW IT WORKS
Keep your treasures with you
Keep multiple rings Safe
Sterling Silver Fonya Lockit
How it all began..
The Fonya lockit is a result of a collaboration between renowned Rheumatologist Dr Muriel Soden and Townsville Jeweller Wade Lavery. Throughout her 30 year medical career as a physician Muriel saw Doctors, Nurses, and even patients wearing their precious rings on Chains around their necks. Some even adopted string as a solution for the safe keeping of their rings while they were in hospital. Muriel always thought there must be a better way of doing things.
She pitched an idea for a solution to Townsville Jeweller. Wade Lavery of TCity Jewellers has built a reputation for his commitment to quality and a passion for design. Together they set about creating a safe and aesthetically pleasing solution that would not wear the rings thin and look great in the process. Ideally multiple rings could be kept together and the wearer could adjust the length of chain to tuck away or leave out for display.
The Fonya locket has grown to feature the signature Fonya Shamrock and the name itself translates to Ring in Irish. There are many exciting variants on the way featuring Diamonds and precious gems. Plans are in place for a larger version for wider style rings.
The Fonya logo is a Shamrock, the symbol of Ireland a place close to the heart of our founder Dr. Muriel Soden. The Shamrock was used for medicinal purposes and Dr Soden saw a need for a solution for Nurses and Doctors on the job, to protect their treasures whilst they care for us.
In addition the three leaves on the Shamrock are said to stand for Faith, Hope and Love.
EASE OF USE
The Fonya Lockit mechanism is like no other. The unique double locking catch with the swing away front can be easliy operated whilst still wearing the chain. Rings can be added or removed with the chain safely around your neck. The Fonya Lockit can also self secure with your rings. The Lockit can be easliy opened and accept a strap or bag loop to secure pendant, chains and ring together away from view.
Designing the Fonya Lockit, has been very time consuming, the process has taken over two years and many prototypes. Our Lockit is practical and secure. A big part of this feature is the Oval Belcher Link Chain. The Chain is of medium profile with an open link making a perfect balance between size and colour. The chain was selected due to its durability and its versatility, the parrot clasp has the ability to securely lock to any link, therefore creating a myriad of options for the wearer. The pendant can be worn long and safely in your tunic front or proudly displayed high showing off her elegant lines.
I needed a long chain to tuck my ring away. This pendant is a brilliant solution
I love the design, it is a beautiful pendant in its own right. I can keep it with me all the time and it ready for work when i need it.
I never want to leave my irreplaceble vintage ring at home when i work. No more splitting gloves i can hide my ring under my scrubs and sneak a peek through the day.
