I Cried. THE Locket of Her Valentine’s Dreams from PicturesonGold.com


I’m not one for emotional displays but when I opened my picture-engraved locket from PicturesonGold.com I had to hold back tears until I could show it to my husband. 

The Gift that Made me Cry

I’d be lying if I said a few tears didn’t slip lose. 

We have precious few photos and keepsakes from our wedding day, after moving multiple times and after our youngest autistic son used many items as sensory therapy *sobs* … so this is one keepsake I will treasure! Solid Stainless Steel, on the left is a photo of my husband and I from our wedding day, while on the right is the only professional photo we have of all three of our  boys, taken within weeks of Logan’s release from NICU. 

I was hoping for a nice representation of both pictures but, as you can see, the level of detail included in these engraved photos is absolutely stunning! It’s the perfect Valentine’s Day present, though I am steadfastly refusing to wear it until the actual day, even though I take it out to look at it every day. 

I even forgot that my birthstone was on the bail (the link that attaches to the top of the locket which the chain runs through) – while I didn’t go for the diamond, the cubic zirconia looks very nice instead. Add in the sterling silver locket and chain and my sensitive skin even likes this jewelry. 

My Valentine Locket

The notes about the build-your-own locket in sterling silver are amazingly detailed about what you can do with this level of personalization: 

  • Color Laser or Laser is 100% Waterproof & Scratchproof and is guaranteed for a lifetime.
  • Normally Ships in 1 Day.
  • Message Engraving is engraved with a high definition laser engraver.
  • If when uploading your photo, your photo doesn’t fit perfectly inside the locket and you see white space, don’t be concerned as we will automatically fill in.
  • If your photo has people in it that are spaced apart, our digital artists will enhance the photo to bring them closer together.
  • Color Laser or Laser- we remove the background of the photograph. Let us know in the “Special Instructions” Box (Last Step) if you’d like the background kept in.
  • On Paper Prints the background is left in by default, if you want the background removed, let us know in the “Special Instructions” box (Last Step).
  • If there is an object you want removed from the photo or you have any special requests, let us know in the “Special Instructions” box (Last Step).

The photos I uploaded to use were from my wedding and from right after Logan was released from the NICU – Pictures on Gold pulled the background away from both pictures to allow for better engravings for both, but they can literally pull images from separate photos if you need to do that. I haven’t seen anything like it before. (No laughing at the non-experienced one here!).

I’ve loved these pictures on gold lockets for so long. I’ve never had something so unique and long lasting. This would make a perfect gift for someone or even a special gift for yourself.

Recently my father passed away and there are many things that my mom can’t wear or look at because it reminds her too much of my dad. After only being able to spend 33 years together, I know that her heart hurts every day. I want to be able to give her something that she can look at, that will give her a chance to hold him close to her heart. There’s no way I could ever be able to heal her heart, but I’d like to be able to just give her a little peace.

Great review and what a pretty locket!!

shelly vandyne

This is a beautiful locket. Loved your review and loved the fact that you can put two different pictures in it.

Amanda Alvarado

I would love one of these! I wonder what kind of detail they can get from a sonogram. That’s all we have of our youngest dd. I was so in shock after losing her that I never thought to take pictures of her before they took her.

Laurie Nykaza

I was given a locket at 16 and have always cherished it.This one is so beautiful my daughter would love it. It makes such a nice gift for someone special in your life!


This is going on my “hint list”. My great-grandmother had an old-fashioned style locket with a picture of her son who was killed in WWII, and I always thought it was beautiful. Unfortunately, my mother lost it a few years ago. To have one with my grandchildren in it would be a wonderful Mother’s Day gift.

Tina Truex

These are beautiful. I can see why they would make someone cry. I want to give one to my daughter on her wedding day with her picture with me and her dad and then picture of her and new hubby.

Marisa May

I love lockets. My husband gave me one years ago with a photo of our kids inside, and it’s still one of my favorite pieces of jewelry. I love that you can have these engraved on the outside and that they have so many ways to make your photos perfect.


I would like to put the girls pictures in there and gift this to grandma


Thanks for the level of detail in your review. I’ve been very curious about what their products are like, & these lockets look beautiful.

T.J. Wallace

Lockets have always seemed kind of magical to me! I think they must be making a comeback. i didn’t hear about them there for a while, but now I am seeing them everywhere. I want one too!

Sandy Cain

These are absolutely stunning. My daughter got one last year, and the work is amazing – laser-engraved right into metal, no paper pictures falling out or wrinkling like in ordinary lockets. I agree with everything you said – this is worth making someone cry over! I would recommend this to anyone looking for a gorgeous and totally unique gift! And perfect for Valentine’s Day! Can you imagine a man giving this to his girl with a “Will you Marry Me?” message engraved on it? OMG!

Jill A. Collins

I’ve seen these lockets a few times and have always thought they were a beautiful keepsake. I’d love to own one!

Judy Bradley

I have always loved lockets, but this with the permanent pictures is really special. I love it and would love to own one!

I think there is no better way to remember loved ones than by keeping them close to your heart. What lovely lockets these are.

Christy Anderson

I love this necklace! I would get our anniversary date engraved on it.

I loved reading your story! So sweet. My friend lost her wedding photos in a house fire, Someone told her to contact the photographer who took her pics and see if by chance he still had the negatives. As it turned out, he did have them ! She was able to get copies from him. You may want to contact yours, who knows? you just might get lucky.
