Les Filles d'Ophelie - the significance of the locket
The locket shows membership of Les Filles d'Ophelie (the daughters of Ophelia), the all-female secret society to which both Susan and Diana belong. On the front it bears the image of a nightingale, the symbol of the sisterhood, while on the reverse, the sisterhood's motto: ego avis enim cantans inaspecta (I am the bird that sings unseen),
The locket is a vital part of the plot of Killing Beauties, and a beautiful thing in itself. As for its place in the book, you'll have to wait and see!
