Lock of hair 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 10x8mm oval shaped cabochon (“hair stone”) 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.

Optional Extras

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 Ring

Handmade Silver Stacking Ring Settings
These totally handmade sterling 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. Some people like to combine metals like gold and platinum in their stack.

engraving your lock of hair ring

engraving your umbilical cord ring

Add your text, up to 60 characters – 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, hope, and remembrance. We are even happy to include more “colourful” language. The more letters you choose, the smaller the writing will be. 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 like the 6mm shiny wide ring option. Here are some special characters you can copy and paste.

! ❤ ✓ ☀ ☾ ★ ☽ ∞ ♫ 💧 🐾

We have blogs with memorial quotes here and baby quotes here.

For image engraving see this page – you can add handwriting, fingerprints, paw prints and handprints or a special pattern. This is recommended for the wider 6mm shiny bands (we can add a brushed effect if you prefer). We can even send you an Inkless Wipe Kit with your lock of hair sending kit, or you can purchase one on Amazon Prime here if you’re in the UK or Amazon.com here – if your loved one has passed away recently you can ask the people taking care of their body to take the prints for you.

    I couldn’t be happier with my beautiful ring; it is even lovelier than I expected and I am so grateful to Nikki for making it. It is so wonderful to have my daughter with me everywhere I go. Everything about the process was easy and reassuring.

    I would just like to say a massive thank you for my beautiful lock of hair ring. I will always have my mum with me now, communication was fantastic! Was a little nervous about sending my mums hair away but I even got back what wasn’t used. Couldn’t recommend this company enough. Thanks again. Chloe Stone

    I honestly don’t even know what to write or say. I have felt so incomplete since my mom has passed away and I looked and looked and I knew that it would take a long time for her ashes to get here because she opted to donate her body to a willed body program at UT Southwestern (WHICH I AM SO PROUD OF HER FOR THAT!) so I cut her hair and found @tree_of_opals !!! These past couple months have been the darkest of times in my life. Thanks to this company being able to create Jewellery with hair, I was able to fill the void in my heart and got her earlier than I would have with her ashes. Even though my grief will never heal and I will always be missing her, I know that she will be forever close to me now and this ring will bring me comfort. Thank you @tree_of_opals I can never put into words how you made me feel. For the rest of my life, I’m going to be okay now.❤ The whole team was great with communicating, and going above and beyond to make my order special. It came super fast and I am so in love! I love the forget me not flower, the wish bracelet and most if all my little ones surprise dragon blood pearl, which he loves. We love yall!

    I was so pleased with my beautiful ring containing my dogs hair. I wear it every day and everyone comments on how beautiful it is. I am now ordering the cufflinks for my husband to be, as a present on our wedding day. Thank you so much

    Absolutely blown away by the ring created by Nikki, the whole process from ordering to receiving has been so well communicated! The ring is just stunning and matched beautifully with the additional necklace I purchased last minute, this was a gift for mother in law after the tragic passing of her daughter (my sister in law) in June, the attention to detail is second to none and it’s given my mum in law something to help aid her grief, I can never thank you enough ❤️❤️

    I was absolutely in shock when my ring arrived, how perfect it was, and how it looked just like I had pictured it would. I wear it every single day , rub it when I get anxious or sad, or whenever i think of my partner because now I know he is always with me. Thank you everyone at Tree of Opals, I’ll never be able to thank you enough . Jade x

    I ordered this ring as part of a trio set, Nikki and her team were super helpful with thier advise and putting together a trio of rings to suit what I was after. I ordered my lock of hair ring, and combined this eirh breastmilk, and the finished product is just amazing – something to treasure and remember my feeding journey with. Nikki and her team kept me updated with photos of my order before they assembled the final piece to ensure I was happy with thier creation. The ring sets perfectly against my engraved stacker and umbilical cord ring and are worn daily with pride.
    I would highly recommend Nikki and her team at Tree of Opals for any sort of memorial jewellery.

    We got a ring containing fur from our three pet rats we lost this year. Nikki did a great job explaining everything to me and working out the details, and we’re very satisfied with the end product. Some patience was needed with the shipping system, but that’s normal.

    • Nikki Kamminga

      Hi Derek thanks for your feedback, I’m so glad you like the ring. There is a 1-3 day USA shipping option available, but even though you chose the standard shipping I am so glad to see arrived in time for Christmas 🙂
