Engraved photo pendants are created by an etching technique which relies on contrast between light and dark areas of a photo. When the light falls on the photo pendant from different angles it gives your photo a magical glint.We engrave a message or dedication on the reverse side of any pendant..Always try to use a photo where the background is contrasting. If in doubt as to the suitability of your photo for engraving please email us the photo before placing your order and we will advise you. Treasure a photo engraved reminder of a loved one by keeping it close to your heart!We have created a new way of keeping a special reminder of those most dear to you wherever you go. Please note the silver photo pendants are not suitable to put on a key ring.
