Solid gold lock of hair orb for necklaces and dangle charm bracelets. Photos don’t show every detail so we can cast your loved ones’ hair, your little one’s first curl or a little of your pets’ fur into a lock of hair gold Lock of Hair Pearl with crystal clear resin.
We will respectfully cast only your loved one’s hair or fur into resin and give you a choice of spheres. You can see Nikki’s YouTube tutorials here and know that I never film without your permission. I’m considered an expert and offer advanced courses in making memorial jewellery, so you’re in safe hands. You might see my designs and stock images elsewhere because other memorial artists buy them from me over on Keepsaker Supplies (you’re welcome to buy from there if you’d rather DIY!)
gold lock of hair pearl colour options
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. Gallery photos are EXAMPLES and results will always vary! 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 leafare 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 Orb Settings
1. Lock of Hair Necklace Setting
The setting for the lock of hair necklace also includes a light weight 20”/50cm solid 9ct gold chain but you can upgrade to a <strongmore secure, different style or longer chain here. We highly recommend this!
2. Lock of Hair Dangle Charm Settings
You can choose a charm bead setting for European (Pandora style) for snake chain bracelets and necklaces, or 9mm lobster clasp (Thomas Sabo style) for large link bracelets and necklaces.
Our orb settings are too small to engrave but you can add a handstamped or laser engraved pendant here.
This listing is for a single 11mm “orb” pearl/sphere which now comes with a solid 9ct gold hand wire wrapped bail, made from 0.7mm wire. We no longer add the ball at the bottom. The base is flat shiny solid gold domed disc around 6mm wide. Please read the Terms and Conditions fully before you order and be sure to realise this setting looks and feels handmade and won’t have mass-produced perfection.
The loop on the top is custom made to suit your setting. If you choose a lobster clasp or European dangle charm setting the loop will be made very small and the setting added as it’s being made. If you choose a necklace chain setting, the loop will be large enough to fit on that necklace, if you have a necklace upgrade then the loop will be large enough for that chain. If you wish to use your own chain, please let us know its maximum width to the nearest 0.5mm when you order, and we will make the loop large enough. Please see the product image gallery for examples.

Hdechalain (verified owner) –
I cannot express how happy I am with this item. I had an idea in my mind for a present for my Mum’s 60th Birthday and spent a long time looking online for a company that that could bring my ideas to life. I knew that I wanted my Son’s first curl to be set in a piece of jewellery but was struggling to find a jeweller that could create the unique and quality piece I felt a 60th Birthday present required. Once I came across Tree of Opals I knew this was the company I had been looking for. I found Nikki very patient and accommodating in answering all my questions and firming up exactly what I was hoping to achieve. Although she is very busy Nikki very kindly reassured me that the piece would be available in time for my Mums Birthday (which it was!)
It can be very difficult when ordering online as the item may arrive and not be quiet as you imagined. The Gold Lock of Hair Pearl arrived and is absolutely perfect. Nikki has brought my ideas to life but even more beautiful than I could have imagined and I cannot wait to give this gift. I would not hesitate to use Tree or Opals again and cannot speak more highly of Nikki and her work. Highly recommend.
