Photos don’t show every detail so we can embed your loved one’s hair, your little one’s first curl or a bit of your pet’s fur into a lock of hair heart necklace 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 (click here).
lock of hair colours
You can view our colour option galleries here (click here) 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. 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
You can add a forget-me-not flower here to your lock of hair heart necklace, or if you prefer only forget-me-nots or other flowers order this charm and let us know in the comments if you’re sending petals or would like us to use only forget-me-nots.
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.
Lock of Hair Heart Necklace
The setting for the heart necklace will be a crown point open-backed setting which are made for us, and also includes a 20”/50cm matinée length sterling silver chain. Please let us know if you would prefer an 18″/45cm or 16″/40cm chain when you order and for longer or different style chains please see our Necklace Chain Upgrades listing (click here) and get in touch with us for a discount for a chain upgrade.
engraving your lock of hair heart necklace
We can engrave text and numbers on the back of the necklace. We’ll always engrave in Arial font as standard but let us know if you’d like the engraving in a different font instead.
Add your text – upper and lower case, numbers and punctuation in your chosen font. You can choose Roman numerals, birth, marriage or death coordinates (we’re happy to help you work that out), or messages of love and remembrance. We have a blog with memorial quotes and inspiration (click here). Here are some special characters you can copy and paste as well.
