Photo Engraved Jewelry from Jewelry Keepsakes

I was recently contact by Hallie from Jewelry Keepsakes about doing an evaluation of one of their photo engraved necklaces. I was incredibly honored she chose me to do a review of one of their products. I have never gotten one of their pieces before nor heard of their site so I was looking forward to browsing through the selection on their website and seeing what they have to offer. I was quite surprised at the wide variety.
I browsed through the selection of photo engraved jewelry to find one I might like. I took my time in selecting what I wanted because I didn’t want to pick something and then wish I had gotten something else. When I had questions about different pieces, Hallie was very helpful and had all the answers I needed. She helped me to select the pendant that was right for me. Once I decided what I wanted I sent a photo and what I wanted engraved on the back. Hallie said that she would put the order in and it would ship out. Incredibly, I got it the very next day! I was very surprised (and elated) at how quickly I got it.
I opened it up like a kid opening up their presents on Christmas morning. I saw my pendant with Carleigh’s picture and it was absolutely beautiful. I was actually speechless! I was amazed at how well Carleigh’s photo had been engraved on the pendant. The detail was very good.

I flipped it over and looked at the back where I had it engraved with her name, birth date, and the words “Always Loved”.

Included with the pendant was a 22 inch chain. I put the pendant on the chain and tried it on. When handling the chain it seemed very strong and I’m very certain it could withstand any pulling from my kids. The ring holding the pendant onto the necklace is quite thick. Unlike some of the other pendants I have, I know that I don’t have to worry about this pendant falling off my necklace from daily wear or from being pulled on. I actually lost Carleigh’s cross from her necklace this way when it fell off on when we were at a local museum. I was never able to recover it (and I haven’t yet replaced it).

The pendant is a little larger than what I would normally wear but I love it so much that I don’t even care. I did put the pendant with my hand/footprint pendant and her baby ring to see how well they would mesh together and I loved how it looked. Now I can put them all together and switch back and forth when I want to wear a small chain or larger chain. The pendant I chose was available in silver or gold tone. I chose the gold so I would be able to put it with my other necklace if I wanted.
To get an idea of the actual size of the pendant, I put a dime next to it.

In addition to the chain that was sent to me, I also receive a cord to hang it from my rear view mirror in my car. I put it on the cord and tried it out. It looked really nice hanging there. The cord is clear with two magnetic ends, which made it super simple to put on and take off the mirror.

While browsing through the website, I looked at the different price ranges they offer. Everything is reasonably priced. There are cheaper options and more expensive options for those buying on different budgets. I would gladly pay for my pendant what it is currently priced. I think it’s a great deal for a great pendant.
In summary, I am overall very satisfied with Jewelry Keepsakes and would recommend to anyone looking for photo jewelry to check them out. The quality and customer service is great! Their jewelry would make a great gift to yourself, a friend, or a family member. (They even do pets!)
