Now that the holiday season is officially upon us, many people will be on the look out for the “perfect” gift idea for that special person in their life.
I love receiving gifts. Who doesn’t?
I prefer gifts from the heart. I LOVE handmade gifts. I also love gifts where it’s clear that the gift giver put a lot of thought into the gift. It’s easy to zip down to the mall and pick up a gift off a store shelf. That’s fine and there is nothing wrong with that. But I like the kinds of gifts where the gift giver put thought into the gift.
I love jewelry. I especially love personalized jewelry such as mother’s necklaces or family rings. I also like giving these types of gifts too.
Buying custom jewelry online is “hit or miss”. You never know what the final piece of jewelry is going to look like. You have a general idea but you won’t really know until the jewelry arrives in your mailbox.
I have purchased customized jewelry in the past that didn’t turn out as nice as I’d like it to. Because it’s customized it’s impossible to return so you are stuck with it.
Imagine if YOU could have full control over how a customized piece of jewelry will look and know what it’s going to look like BEFORE making the purchase? You can with a new interactive feature at PicturesOnGold.com.
Last month PicturesOnGold.com introduced their “Design Your Own Locket” application. This unique application allows consumers to have full control over designing their locket as well as the ability to see exactly how the locket will look before purchasing it.
PicturesOneGold.com was kind enough to let me design my own locket to review.
Once you decide on the style of locket you want (heart, oval, circle, gold, silver…) you are all set to design the locket exactly how you’d like it with personalized engraving, laser photos, clip art and more.
You can choose from 1,000’s of clip art designs for the front of your locket. PicturesOnGold.com has so many to choose from including hearts, flowers, military designs, sports, symbols, occupations, holidays and so much more.
You could opt to use text for the front of the locket instead. You can create your own message within the space limit. Or you could go with a beautiful monogram design.
Once you have finalized the outside design it’s time to work on the inside of the locket.
As it is with the outside of the locket you can choose what you want on the right and left side inside the locket. You can choose from text, clip art or upload your photo and have the photo laser engraved on to the locket. You can have the photo laser engraved in color or in black and white.
I have reviewed other PicturesOnGold.com laser engraved photo jewelry in the past and I have always been pleased with the outcome.
What I like about being able to design your own locket is that you can adjust and resize the photo so that it looks exactly how you want it in the locket. For example, I used my wedding photo for one side and my children’s photo on the other side. I was able to shrink/expand the photos to get them to the size I want and move them around so that everyone’s face was seen clearly.
Lastly you are able to customize the back of the locket if you want (I opted not to).
This is how my locket turned out (with the exception of the green stone – I was only testing that out. That is another option available for your locket).
I chose “Always & Forever” for my locket because my family will always and forever be in my heart. They are my heart and soul and I love them all with every fiber of my being.
PicturesOnGold.com can also help you to customize your locket even further. Please visit their website to see what ways they can help you create the perfect customized locket.
Here is the amazing part – the lockets normally ship within ONE DAY! My locket showed up in just a matter of days. I was pleasantly surprised.
I love how my locket turned out. It even came with a necklace so I was able to wear it right away.
I tried to take photos of it but they are not turning out well.
These lockets would make the perfect gift. I can imagine making up a customized locket for a mom, or a newly married lady, or even grandma with photos of her grandchildren inside.
