How long do orders take to process?
As all pieces are made to order, you will need to allow approximately one week for your order to be completed and ready for shipping. This is however dependant on the design therefore some lockets are available quicker than others. Please note that this time frame is dependant on our studios workflow and may vary during peak times.
Do all lockets come with a chain?
Chains are included with our engraved lockets. Please note that chains are not included with our postage stamp lockets or engraved charms but can be purchased separately, click here to view
How do I put a photo inside my locket?
To place a photo inside your locket it is recommended that you print it out yourself so you can adjust the size and crop it for a perfect fit. Also, by using a light weight paper the photo will be much easier to position inside the locket. Once you’re ready, trim the photo to a size slightly larger than the inside frame. Now comes the tricky part, Mrs Smiley’s trick is to bend the photograph from the middle, only slightly, allowing it to slide underneath the frame. Please note that the frame can NOT be removed. You may also, if the mood takes you, glue the photo into position with a plain craft glue, painting a thin layer of clear glue over the top of the image for protection. Please do not force your locket open into a flat position as this will damage the resin and hinge. Instructions differ slightly for the sterling silver lockets, instructions are however included with all lockets.
How do I care for my vintage locket?
Mrs Smiley knows you love your locket, and that you want to obsess over every one of its beautiful little details. Remember that your locket is an original vintage piece, and imperfections only add to its beauty. Keep your locket safe and dry, and clean only with a soft dry cloth or jewellery cloth. Hairspray, perfumes and moisturiser will tarnish your locket, spray with care.
