Vintage Hinged Heart Locket
This beautiful vintage locket is a simple heart shape, perfect for either an adult or child.
The locket measures only 25mm (one inch) across and is made from solid brass. It has a unusual feature hinge at the top of the locket and a very simple clasp mechanism.
The size of this pendant means it can be worn by an adult or a child. We make each necklace to order and this necklace is available in a choice of chain lengths. Please refer to my illustration for a guide to how these lengths might look when worn. For girls under ten years, we would recommend a necklace length of 14 inches, but please do get in touch if you need to discuss.
We can personalise this locket for you, using a carefully designed technique to transfer your photographs onto the metal of the pendant itself, for a really soft and unique vintage effect. Parts of your image will merge with the golden brass behind, creating a very beautiful, ununsual and ethereal look.
What to do NextAfter checkout, all you need to do is email us to attach and send your chosen images, in the best resolution you have, and we will take care of the rest! In terms of picture quality, most photos taken on smartphones will be perfectly fine! Please DO NOT send us any images until your order has been processed.
Please bear in mind that the photos will be trimmed to circle-shape to fit in this locket ... so some background space is useful! Please allow 3 days for preparation and dispatch of your locket.
Some Tips for Choosing a Good Photo:
- Consider the shape of the locket, and how your photo might fit into that shape.
- Some background (not necessarily a lot!) is helpful - it might be difficult to work with a photo which is cropped very closely.
- Very pale, 'washed out' or overexposed images won't work very well.
- Please remember to send TWO images (or pieces of text, with a max of 8 words)
Please allow up to 3 days for your locket to be made.
