Ayla Lock of hair ring with crystal clear resin. Using locks of human hair in jewellery has a long and rich tradition in many cultures which you can read more about in this Wiki article. We offer special prices for Family Orders if you’re looking for several pieces.
lock of hair colours
You can view our colour option galleries here (click) for lots of examples of pieces using that colour mix. Each piece will look unique because of the natural colours of the hair or fur and we can’t predict the results and we must use colour (you can’t choose clear resin). We will use our best efforts with white hair, which is clear in resin, to give the hair some depth and bounce some light off the strands. If you’d like us to use grey, white, salt and pepper or very light blonde hair in the Ayla Lock of Hair Ring then it may or may not show up in the resin, have a look at this gallery
lock of hair or fur sending kits
We’ll send you a kit a week or so after you order and here’s some advice on sending it in, please read it. It’s really important you keep some hair back just in case. You can send us a photo on our Facebook page of the amount you have, so we can tell you how much of it we need.
You can request some extras in your piece by clicking here. For example, our forget me not flower and gold leaf are very popular – please make sure you see the example photos (as always) to ensure you have a good idea of how they might look. Usually, less is more!
Lock of Hair Ring
These rings are cast by hand in Scotland from a design Nikki developed for Tree of Opals and their other business, Keepsaker Supplies. Stacking rings can be worn next to one-another and collected just like charm beads. We use Argentium silver for all of our ring bands, which is a little purer than sterling at 93.5% purity and are less likely to tarnish than sterling. If you’d prefer to DIY this ring then please see the listing here on our sister site Keepsaker Supplies and order it as a breastmilk DIY kit!
You can choose “send sizer” from the ring size dropdown above and we will post one out with your kit. It’s no extra charge. These are comfort fit bands so if you’re in between two sizes, just select the smaller size; they can be easily enlarged in seconds by any jeweller! Please do not use a tape measure to find your ring size, we’ll send you a sizer free of charge with your kit (see our T’s and C’s for more info on ring sizing). If you think you may be smaller than a size M or larger than a size T then please order a Plus Size Ring Sizer here before ordering the ring itself to check, we can refund this if you order and send it back with your kit. Our handmade breastmilk ring here can be made in any size.
engraving your Ayla Lock of Hair ring
Engraving can be done in Arial font as standard, Times New Roman, or Silver South Serif but please remember the band is curved so it will curve around so the letters must be small. Click on each font to see it “in action” with your chosen words. We can work with any font, please get in touch to discuss alternatives. We don’t recommend image engraving or handwriting fonts like Vivaldi, Amazone BT or Silver South Script because they would be too small to read. Copy and paste these emojis, sometimes the ones on a phone or tablet aren’t accepted when you try to add to basket!

Engraving is done on the inside of our Ayla Lock of Hair Ring as standard, please let us know in the comments if you’d prefer it on the outside, We have blogs with memorial quotes here.
