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.
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 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!
Lock of Hair Ring
These totally handmade silver rings are available in several different styles of band and a 10x8mm bezel cup. They are handcrafted by keepsake artist and jewellery designers and are made in-house. 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.
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!

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 and for image engraving see this page – you can add handwriting, fingerprints, footprints, paw prints and handprints or a special pattern.
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, brushed and shiny 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. If you think you may be smaller than a size L or larger than a size T then please order a Plus Size Ring Sizer here.
Nikki’s YouTube Tutorial
If you’d prefer to DIY this ring you can purchase supplies over on Keepsaker Supplies and follow this tutorial. I have been teaching people how to make hair and fur rings in person and online since 2016.
