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.
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!

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.

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.

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.
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.
