Therefore, we carefully consider your specifications in order to deliver and create precisely what you want and even go beyond your expectations.

We craft every piece of jewelry with intentionality and care, making sure that the design you have in mind is brought to life. We ensure that every detail, right from the photo in the jewelry, to the type of jewelry, the color, and the design, is carefully planned and carried out. 

We recognize the importance of keeping and making memories, and as such, we go the extra mile to give you a piece of jewelry that will not only make the memories last but will also keep them burning bright and alive in your mind.


At Jewelry Keepsakes, we understand that many situations can warrant gifts, and each of these situations have their own peculiarities. We know that giving photo engraved jewelry as a gift to new parents is different from giving the same type of jewelry to people who are mourning the transition of a loved one. As such, we make all our jewelry, keeping the situation around them in mind.

For instance, photo engraved jewelry for new parents would come in exciting designs that will make the parents excited about their new journey. On the other hand, a photo engraved jewelry for a grieving person will be done in subtle and calm designs that will communicate hope and peace to the recipient.

We recognize the importance of these seemingly minute details and do our best to incorporate them all into our jewelry pieces.


We believe that for our customers to like and appreciate what we do for them, we must first appreciate them ourselves. Because of this, we craft every piece as if it were our own. We craft them so that we would be able to take pride in the fact that they came from us.

We craft our pieces such that when we come across them, we can boldly and proudly admit that we made them.

We've had many years in the industry, so we've seen many designs and pieces, and as such, our standards are high and impeccable. 

We craft our designs not as jobs but as intentional gifts we give you -  our customers.


There are few things that can replace the love and companionship of other family members. We recognize the importance of our business, and so do other members of our family who have also come to recognize and imbibe the core and vision of the business.

With this, you can be assured that your photo engraved jewelry is made by people who are passionate about it, not just people doing it for money.


We believe in our brand's importance, and as such,  we are our brand's greatest promoters and influencers. From experience, we have been on both ends of the spectrum, and we know how wonderful it is to receive and gift photo engraved jewelry as gifts.

We have firsthand experienced the warm, fuzzy feeling resulting from being given an incredibly thoughtful gift that shows someone took time out to give a gift and didn't just grab the first thing they saw at the mall.

We hope to help as many people as possible experience this wonderful feeling, too.

One of the primary reasons we are so proud of our pieces is because of how versatile they are. There is hardly any situation where our photo engraved jewelry pieces aren't suitable. Below are some special occasions where photo engraved jewelry would serve as a fantastic gift.
