Artistic and custom-made or personalized jewelry is always eye-catching. An additional refinement that is both stylish and very personal is the new photo jewelry, where you actually can insert a small photo or two into the jewelry piece you’ve chosen. You are almost guaranteed to get lots of questions about it, every time you wear it. This is fabulous jewelry that will bring art and drama to your life.
Photo jewelry comes in different styles: necklace, bracelet or pin, and all are designed to display small, precious photos. The necklaces are often two-sided, so that you can wear two photos, front and back. Most of the photo jewelry we have seen is silver colored metal, and will hold photos that are either 1-1/2″ x 1″ or 1″ x 1″.
Many women want to wear a picture of their true love close to their heart, and so select the necklace. Some enjoy being reminded of the strength of their love and affection at any time of the day. And the decision about which photo to include is fun, because you can change the photo any time you want.
Photo jewelry transforms your photos into a statement of style and sentiment, and lets you express the really important things in life with flair and charm. Some women keep several photos on hand so that they have a choice of which to use in their jewelry. Some might select the photo with a certain background color to match or complement their outfit on a particular day. Others might choose according to their mood or which family member they are thinking about.
Here is a starter list of photos that might be used in photo jewelry: husband, mother, father, friend, significant other, daughter, son, grandchild, favorite dog, favorite cat, prized flower, sentimental vacation memory, and many more.
In addition to wearing jewelry around your neck or wrist or pinning it to your blouse or jacket, here a couple of other ideas: wear the pin on a hat, let one decorate your purse, or even attach one to your pet’s collar! If you have a small child, one of these suggestions will keep the baby’s hands off your jewelry, but you can still have the pleasure of taking your most meaningful pictures with you.
Photo jewelry makes a fashion statement, a mood statement, and a style statement. You can find several different tasteful designs on the internet, and all are one form or another of a photo locket: silver metal locket with swirls, locket with drop pearls or star embellishment, locket pin with rings or drop pearls, locket bracelet with scroll design and locket keepsake bracelet. The highest quality and most long-lasting are made of durable and beautiful jeweler’s pewter.
