Lock of hair heart ring because photos don’t show every detail of your loved ones’ hair, your little one’s first curl or a little of your pets’ fur. We’ll cast it into a 10mm heart shaped cabochon (“hair stone”) with crystal clear resin.
We will respectfully cast only your loved one’s hair or fur into resin and give you a choice of stones. 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!)
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. 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 lock of hair as an additional element to any of our other pieces, for example if you’d like a cremation ash and hair ring then order a cremation ashes heart ring and add hair as an additional element.
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 Ring
Handmade Silver Ring Settings
These totally handmade silver rings are available in several different styles of band. They are handcrafted by keepsake artist and jewellery designers and are made in-house. We use Argentium silver for most of our ring bands (except bubble band), which is a little purer than sterling at 935 or 940 purity and are less likely to tarnish than sterling. Please note, the bubble and twist bands are the thinnest and may be prone to knocking, the most sturdy option is the 6mm wide band, and you can request a 6mm band to be brushed, satin, shiny, textured or tree bark in the comments (highly recommended).
These heart rings are ideal for special occasion wear and may catch on clothing due to the corner and crown point edge. The heart is a 10mm solid sterling silver crown point heart. They are not ideal for everyday wear due to size, instead we would recommend an oval Cremation Ashes Ring here.
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. Twisted and bubble wire rings will be made in the size provided and are comfort fit and easy to put on. The wide band rings such as textured and tree bark will automatically be made a size bigger to allow for their width. Please do not use a tape measure! See our T’s and C’s for more info on ring sizing.
engraving your lock of hair heart ring
Engraving is possible on all bands except twist and bubble. It 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!

Engraving is done on the inside of our silver bands as standard, please let us know in the comments if you’d prefer it on the outside. We have blogs with memorial quotes here, baby keepsake quotes here and for image engraving see this page – you can add handwriting, fingerprints, footprints, paw prints and handprints or a special pattern.

Kccookie03 (verified owner) –
My lock of fur ring is beautiful. I love it! My only issue is that the setting has jagged edges and gets caught on things.
Nikki Kamminga –
Thanks for your review – the cabochon has a serrated edge which can catch. For an every day ring we’d recommend our smooth edge lock of hair ring
