How To Choose Photos For A Locket
There is no nicer or more personal piece of jewellery than a locket filled with special memories. It’s the perfect way to keep loved ones close and it can give great pleasure and comfort to know they are always with you.
At Lily Blanche we have a variety of lockets which take photographs - ranging from our highly romantic Vintage Heart Lockets to the bestselling Memory Keeper Lockets in silver, gold or rose gold. These open to take six photographs.
We have recently launched our photo insertion service for Lily Blanche lockets and this is proving extremely popular. We shrink, enhance and print the photos on high quality photographic paper before inserting them into your locket to create a highly personalised gift or memento.
Many kinds of photographs will work but there are a few simple guidelines to follow when choosing photos for the locket. The higher the resolution, the better. A good quality picture will shrink down without losing too much definition. If you have photos from a professional photoshoot, these will work extremely well.
Bear in mind the shape of the locket. Choose an unfussy photo with a clear central image with some space around it. A head shot works well. Two people will also make for a good image but please ensure their heads are reasonably close together. People standing far apart or with heads at different heights won’t work. Groups of people work less well.
Having said that, we haven’t yet come across a photo we haven’t been able to work with. Modern cameras are brilliant and take incredibly sharp detailed photos. However, old photos can have a real charm and we love working with vintage photos. Babies, children, brides and pets all look great in a multi-photo locket.
Theming the Memory Keeper Locket can be highly effective – all black and white images, for example or photos from a wedding as a gift for a bride or mother of the bride can look great.
