Solid 14ct gold lock of hair ring with resin. 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.

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
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!

engraving your gold lock of hair ring
Add your text, up to 60 characters – upper and lower case, numbers and punctuation in your chosen font. Engraving on the gold rings must be done on the outside of the band. 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 (we will engrave in Arial font unless you ask for a different font). 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 but please remember these bands are quite narrow. 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.
