Personalised Photogem Jewellery, Review and Giveaway

Photogem Jewellery Review and (New Christmas!) Giveaway. 

It’s safe to say that whatever style I may have had pre-kids, (and it’s fairly debatable I had any!), I lost it all to Motherhood when stained pyjamas, baggy tops and messy hair were my ‘look’. Now that they are a bit older, I have started to care again about my appearance and actually now make a slight effort with what I wear. One thing that I always wished I was better at is accessorising. I recently went to a clothes party where they demonstrated that a simple necklace or bracelet can take an outfit from so-so to stunning.

I’m not quite there yet though, I have recently added a watch to my everyday wear, but one thing I’ve always worn is a necklace. And I tend to wear the same one for months, or maybe years and then get given a new one, which I also then wear for years. My favourite type of jewellery now I have children are the personalised items that you can get, I already have a lovely fingerprint necklace but I was absolutely blown away when I spotted a stall selling charms which contain your photos in miniature. Photogem is also a small local business and I love to support local as well.


I just could’t believe that it was possible to shrink something down so small and yet keep the clarity. I have no idea how exactly she does it, but Anne-Marie makes each beautiful piece by hand. The ordering was so easy, and I could choose between colour and black and white for the photos, I went for black and white, and it was even possible to crop out two people from a family picture, resulting in two lovely pictures of my husband with a child in each.


The necklace was so beautifully presented wrapped in tissue in a box tied with ribbon, and as well as the photo charm, there is also a small silver disc with each child’s initial on, (tucked away behind the gem), and I have had so many comments on it already. As well as more feminine silver necklaces and bracelets, there are also leather wrap bracelets and cufflinks and keyrings so something for all tastes.

As a Mum, I love being able to carry my family around with me at all times, but I think this is also lovely if you have lost someone special, especially if you would like to have them with you at an important event, such as a wedding. There are also examples on the website of people have their lovely canine companions immortalised.

I have one silver Photogem necklace with one photogem charm and initial available to give away! Scroll down to the bottom to be in enter to be in with a chance of winning, if you just can’t wait that long, get an amazing 15% all orders in June with the code PPB15.

  12. June 19, 2017 / 10:01 am

    Those are stunning 🙂 Really unusual.

  13. June 19, 2017 / 10:26 am

    They are adorable and you’re right about the clarity of the print. #BigPinkLink

  14. June 19, 2017 / 11:48 am

    These are sooooo beautiful!! Love finding out about unique local businesses, would rather support them than the giant chains!!! #bigpinklink

  15. June 19, 2017 / 1:49 pm

    They look really nice and will make a great gift! #bigpinklink

  16. June 19, 2017 / 8:22 pm

    These are so beautiful! I would love one but I forget to wear jewellery! #bigpinklink

  17. June 19, 2017 / 8:23 pm

    Ah so beautiful – and I love the photos of the jewellery you have taken for this post too.


  18. June 20, 2017 / 5:23 am

    What lovely jewellery the photo necklace is my favourite and would make a great gift #bigpinklink

  19. June 20, 2017 / 10:35 am

    Your approach to jewellery sounds like mine! The necklace is stunning though, I need to check this company out…maybe it’s time to treat myself for once!

  20. June 20, 2017 / 11:58 am

    They look so gorgeous, what a great memento #bigpinklink

  21. June 20, 2017 / 6:39 pm

    Omg these are gorgeous! What an amazing idea – definitely good one to have up your sleeve for a gift! #bigpinklink

  22. June 21, 2017 / 11:45 am

    This is such a beautiful necklace. I am actually quite a jewlery fan but really can’t get on board with watches. I wear a necklace my husband bought me 9 years ago when we were first together. I just can’t bring myself to take it off #BigPinkLink

    I’m really rubbish at remembering to wear any of the jewellery I own! I’m like you, I’ll wear the same thing for years!! this is absolutely beautiful though!! #BigPinkLink

  25. June 22, 2017 / 11:17 am

    This looks gorgeous! It’s amazing how clear those photos are when they seem so tiny! Something for you to cherish. #BigPinkLink x

  26. June 22, 2017 / 11:51 am

    Oh I LOVE this!! I love anything personalised but when it comes to photos of the children I am sold! Beautiful necklace!! #bigpinklink

  27. June 22, 2017 / 4:20 pm

    What a beautiful necklace and amazing that the photos are such good quality, yet so neat. I always wear a necklace my husband gave me with each first initial of the children and his, so I agree that personalised jewellery is a real treasure now that we have kids. #bigpinklink

  28. June 22, 2017 / 10:02 pm

    Such a lovely thing to keep your family close, I love personalised jewellery too. Great giveaway: good luck everyone! #bigpinklink
