The locket is vintage, so has a bit of tarnishing and maybe a couple of tiny age spots! The inside is inlaid with copper and looks beautiful with the golden brass. There is space inside for two pictures or photographs.
The locket is oversized measuring 45mm long and 35mm wide, and is best suited to mid- and longer length chains. Please refer to my illustration for a better idea of how necklace length options will look.
PersonalisationWe 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, unusual and ethereal look.
What to do Next
After checkout, all you need to do is email 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 bear in mind that the photos will be trimmed to oval-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 15 words per side)
Please allow up to 3 days for your locket to be made.
