Review: Jewelry Keepsakes Photo Engraved Pedant
Jewelry Keepsakes is known for their cremation jewelry, including cremation pendants, rings and bracelets. They are perfect for cherishing cremains of your beloved ones. But did you know they also have picture engraved jewelry? I didn't, either! Until I was given the opportunity to get one of my very own.
First, I selected the pendant of my choice (the round pendant in silver). Then I emailed them a photo of my husband and daughter from my daughter's recent birthday. It was going to be a test of their detail work, since my daughter had had her face painted that day, and she had a pretty design on her face. I didn't know if that would fly with them, but I thought I'd try because I love the photo. It turned out to be no problem.
Within two days, a package appeared at my door. I thought, "There's no way it's here already." But it was! And the pendant turned out beautifully.
Because the pendant is so shiny, the photos I've taken of it don't do it justice. I kept getting a glare, but take my word for it, there is a lot of detail in that image.
I asked for the pendant (which is 1" in diameter) and a 22" premium silver matching chain. The set is lovely. I also had it engraved on the back with my husband and daughter's names with the date of her birthday. (BTW, they are both alive and well!)
The cost for the photo engraved pendant was $39.95 (including photo engraving and lettering), and the premium chain was $18.99 (though you can opt for the matching silver 20" chain that comes included in the pendant's price). Your item will usually ship out to you within 24 hours, which is amazing since these are so personalized.
Note that my pendant is NOT a cremation pendant. Jewelry Keepsakes DOES have cremation photo engraved pendants, but they do cost more ($109.95 each).
The quality of these pendants and the craftsmanship are excellent. I imagine the urn jewelry is just as well-made. I recommend you check out their site if you are interested in cremation jewelry or would like an engraved keepsake of someone in your family, living or deceased.
