“Sisters are joined heart to heart” has always been a favorite quote of mine ever since my best friend from college included it in my youngest daughter’s baby book. She was baby number four, and only 15 months younger than her sister. You know the joke about photo books that are huge and pages and pages for the first child and by the time to you get time to do the fourth book it’s a picture collage? I was sort of experiencing a great deal of mom guilt because of it. Knowing of my guilt, during a visit my friend and I sat down and spent hours and hours working on my fourth child’s photo book. Sisterhood is sometimes what you are born with, sometimes what you are blessed with. I’m blessed with it. This year I wanted to celebrate it and give gifts that are special, unique and memorable. That’s why I was so excited to be able to work with Pictures on Gold to create a memorable, beautiful and personalized gift.
Pictures on Gold offers a huge selection of specialized jewelry! There are lockets, photo, fingerprint, medical ID, names, engravings, rings, charms, watches and well you get the idea. Stop by their site and you will be amazed at the selection. Some are even specialized for first responders, graduation and religions. They also offer the chains and charms, to go with the jewelry. I was immediately drawn to the Sterling Silver Locket. My daughter has some skin allergies and Sterling Silver is one of the few items which she can wear without breaking out in a rash.
What was most important to me was the ability to truly personalize this locket. Unless someone uses my pictures of my daughters and recreates this necklace it is truly one of a kind. After you visit the site and select the type of jewelry you want to create you have these types of options.
For the front of the locket you can select from a number of thematic engravings. Choose from hearts, flowers, religious, butterflies, music, symbols, even Celtic. Since we were doing the “heart to heart” theme I chose floral hearts which sort of interlock to be engraved on the front.
Up next on the inside I included their initials, one first initial of each and then a last initial. Then I had the photo insertion with one of my favorite pictures of the girls together. We were doing family photos and my one daughter was getting a little tired. I loved how she rested her head on her sisters’ shoulder and then her older sister comforted with a head tilt too. It wasn’t a planned photo but it’s one of my favorites as they offer each other love, comfort and support.

On the back I included my favorite quote “Sisters are joined heart to heart,” so even though they may fuss and fight with each other they will always remember that no one will love, comfort, or support you like a sister can.
The site was so easy to use. As soon as you decide what you want on the front of the necklace it moves on to the left inside and right inside. It is very intuitive and walks you right through each step even letting you know how many characters are left. I was able to easily rearrange the text on the back to space the way that I thought attractive.
You do have to select your choice of chain. I loved the sparkle of the “Singapore Chain” also known as the Twisted Rope. It’s considered one of the stronger chains and is supposed to never tangle or twist. You can select from 16, 18, or 24 inch chain and it includes a lobster claw lock.
It so beautifully packaged I could literally just place a bow on it and put it in a stocking but I think I may get a little more creative with it.
