Memorial lockets are small ornamental cases, usually on a necklace or chain, that holds a picture, keepsake, etc. Memorial lockets open to reveal a space used for storing a photograph or other small item such as a curl of hair. Urn Lockets are usually given to loved ones at funerals.
Cremation lockets are a special place to keep a photo of a loved one, making them the perfect gift to keep them always in your heart. If you have received a locket as a gift or bought a lovely locket necklace for yourself, you are probably wondering the best way to fit a photograph inside the jewelry. Placing a photograph inside a locket is easy with these steps to follow and outline the process of fitting your photograph into the pendant correctly.
- Prepare the photo. Most photographs are too large for petite locket necklaces. If the photograph is a hard copy, you can use scissors to trim it. If the picture is scanned onto your computer, resize it before printing a copy for your locket jewelry. Place the insert over the photograph and draw an outline around it. Using a utility knife or small pair of sharp scissors, carefully cut around the photograph along the outline.
- Put the Picture into your memorial locket. Hold the cutout photo with your fingers at the edges and slide it into the locket. This might take a little wiggling, but it will eventually pop in. You can use tweezers to hold the photo for better precision.
- Replace the Insert. The plastic insert will protect the photo and keep it in place. Replace the plastic insert using the same method that you used to place the photo in the locket. You can use the tweezers to pop all the edges in.
