Personalised Navy & Gold World Map Locket
This world map globe locket is vintage brass, which has been carefully hand enamelled to turn the ocean into a beautiful, hand painted midnight blue shade, with the continents a rich gold colour. Inspired by the appearance of vintage maps and atlases, the enamel varies subtly in shade and has a delicate, watercolour appearance.
The rich blue looks amazing with the golden brass colour of the land! This globe necklace would make a perfect travel inspired gift.
This is a double sided locket, with the Eastern hemisphere on one side and the West on the other.
The locket measures one inch across and there is space inside for two pictures or photographs. It has a great weight, so works very well as a longer pendant, or looks equally nice if worn shorter.
This piece of handmade jewellery comes packaged in a nice recycled gift box with a handmade tag, all ready to give or keep
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, unusual and ethereal look.
You have the option of choosing photographs, the message(s) of your choice, or a combination both.
What To Do Next
After checkout, all you need to do is send us 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 images before you have placed an order.
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 per side)
Please allow up to 3 days for your locket to be made.
