What is Photo engraving explained: Photo engraving is performed by a diamond point making small dents on the face of a polished reflective face of a pendant. By creating a contrast between light and dark areas of a photo a three-dimensional holographic effect is achieved. When light reflects off the face of the photo it has a magical glint.
Taking care of your photo pendants: Photo engraving is a very exact process which impacts a prepared metal surface, which has been milled to create a smooth and level environment. The engraved image when finished is no deeper than a few hundreths of a millimeter.Looking after your photo pendant:The surface after engraving is susceptible to damage if hit by hard objects.The image can be scratched by other metal objects or even plastic.To maintain a photo pendant in it’s original condition we recommend the minimum amount of contact with your hands as the sweat that perspires from your skin is acidic and will corrode the image very quickly.We are not liable for damage caused in this way nor scratching by other objects. Rubbing the image between thumb and forefingers, a common comforting behaviour, will have an abrasive affect on the engraving; eventually eroding the image until it all but disappears.
An occasional light polishing with a dry lense cleaning cloth will give the pendant the greatest protection from oxidisation. Only brush very gently on the photo surface a few times.Jewellery cleaning liquids or cloths are NOT recommended. Do not wear the pendant in the shower/bath or swimming pool.Detergents/shampoos/deodorants/hair spray/face or medical creams will have a corrosive affect on the engraving.
