Chunky gold 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 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!
Hallmarked Chunky Gold Hair Ring
A 375 purity 9ct Solid gold handmade Chunky Gold hair ring available in sizes I-Z+5, other size available on request*. Photographs as always are a guide and bezels are serrated so they may catch slightly so please take care of it. Your loved one’s ashes will be set in resin in an 8x6mm cabochon. The cab is set into the oval 14ct bezel cup then we push the metal into place to further secure it. The bezel cups are serrated but we can round off the points on request; we can’t remove the points because they protect the cabochon. These will be hallmarked 9ct gold with the Tree of Opals hallmark from the Birmingham Assay Office to ensure the quality of our handmade goldsmithed jewellery. You will not find gold plated, gold filled or gold vermeil amongst any of our products!
engraving your lock of hair ring
Engraving is done in Arial font as standard,but please let us know if you’d prefer another font such as Times New Roman, Vivaldi, Amazone BT, or Silver South Serif & Script in the comments of the product before adding it to the basket. 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 recommend Arial, Times New Roman or Silver South Serif for long messages, and handwriting fonts like Vivaldi, Amazone BT or Silver South Script are great for short messages and on larger pieces. Copy and paste these emojis, sometimes the ones on a phone or tablet aren’t accepted when you try to add to basket!
