How long will my Image Gold order take?
All sterling silver and 9ct, 18ct gold pendants will out last you if cared for properly.
Avoid contact with surfaces that could scratch your Image Gold pendant. Your pendant can be cleaned with a soft cloth in warm soapy water and dried with a clean cotton cloth or use jewellery or spectacle polishing cloths.
It is highly recommended that Imaglaze is applied to the engraved surface to protect the image from accidental bumps and scratches. Imaglaze is a clear resin that adheres to the pendant and sets hard (similar to what you see on name badges). Imaglaze comes with a 2yr warranty and can be easily replaced if necessary. Imaglazed products can not be worn in water.
Avoid excessive exposure to the sun/uv light and sudden changes to temperature. Do not wear Imaglazed products in water. Consistent repeated use in water will decrease the life span of the Imaglaze. ( see Imaglaze protective covering)
We think our record is 8! However, the faces will be smaller, obviously, to fit them all in. Small images will still be clear, but may lose some finer detail and some of the 3D effect.
If there is one face on a pendant, it can be larger, and therefore see the detail better.
As a rule use the larger pendants for three or more images. Recommendations for three to four images per side are:
- CL06 (large Classic Oval)
- CL02 (large Classic Round)
- D101 (Designer Round)
- D102 (Italian Round)
- D106 (Designer Oval)
- D107 (Designer Rectangle)
An option is to consider putting images on the front and back of the pendant to keep them as large as possible
See Product Range descriptions for dimensions / sizes
Images can be selected from different photos. With your order, please include clear instructions about the images to be engraved. Eg ‘Gran with yellow hat on the left, Pa with glasses and floral shirt on the right’. You don’t need to write on, attach stickers or cut out the front of the photos.
Please choose photos that are clear and well lit with no shadowing on the faces. Remember the better the quality or higher the resolution of the image, the better the engraving will be. We understand that sometimes you may only have one precious photo though, and we do our very best to work with that. See Selecting Photos
The image can vary in size from a passport photo to an A4 photo. We will enlarge or reduce the image size to fit your Image Gold product.
Yes, we have engraved cars, boats, horses, dogs, cats, budgies, fingerprints, tigers and even dolphins. Anything that means a lot to you or someone you love can be engraved onto one of our range of pendants.
