solid 14ct gold lock of hair ring
Photos don’t show every detail so we can cast your loved ones’ hair, your little one’s first curl or a little of your pets’ fur into a gold 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.
solid gold lock of hair ring colour options
You can pick one of our eight colour mixes, or choose “classic ash” for a piece set in clear resin with a white background. Click on this colour options page to see more info about each variation, including how we place each of the colours and shimmers. 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.
lock of hair colours
You can view our colour option galleries here (click) for lots of examples of pieces using that colour mix. 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
We can add your loved one or pet’s birthstone as a natural birthstone, just choose it from the menu. The pages there give examples of pieces we have made for clients in the past. Each birthstone will look different depending on your colour choice and the natural colours of the hair.
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 solid 14ct gold ring then order a solid gold cremation ash ring and add hair as an additional element.

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.
