How to Use a Projection Necklace?

An exciting feature of a projection necklace is that it transforms your favorite photo into an unforgettable piece of jewelry. The central gem encloses a customized picture that, when illuminated with light, projects the image onto a nearby surface.

So, how to use a photo projection necklace after getting yours? Its magic can be unlocked with the flashlight or the camera lens on your phone, or just by looking at it with one eye!

How to use a projection necklace?

Method 1

One of the most wonderful ways is to project the picture inside the necklace onto a nearby surface, such as a white wall.

  1. Open the flashlight of your cell phone.
  2. Stand wall facing.
  3. Point the flashlight at the flat side (backside) of the necklace’s center stone, and ta-da, you’ll see the image enlarged and projected onto the wall! 

Remember, a dimmed environment yields better results. A little fiddling may be necessary to find the best projection angle.

Method 2

The best way to see the image clearly is probably to use the camera on your phone. 

  1. Open the camera app.
  2. Aim the lens at the convex side (front side) of the pendant. You’ll see the picture enlarged on the screen of your phone.

Method 3

You can simply view your image with your naked eye rather than using a tool. Just hold the pendant about one inch from one eye and peek into the gem. 

Many people wonder how the necklace carries a picture inside. The custom picture is micro-carved into a 3 mm microphotograph and inlaid on a special lens, which is then glued to the central gem. We have a detailed blog on this!

Care tips for projection necklaces

To keep your precious memories lasting longer, please:

▫ Use a clean and soft cloth to gently wipe the lens, if you see black dots or hair-like stuff on the image. Dirt or grease can result in specks on the images or blurred pictures. 

▫ Do not wear it to the pool, spa, or the beach. 

▫ Take off when sleeping, exercising, or doing other physically heavy activities.

▫ Keep away from perfumes, body oils, and other chemicals, including household cleaners.

▫ Do not use chemical jewelry cleaners.

▫ Store your jewelry in a cool dry place, such as in a jewelry box.


The necklace with picture inside captures your best memories and preserves them as fresh as the day they commemorated. It’s a thoughtful gift to show how much you care, as it delivers a romantic message of love.

It's a truly unique and personal gift. Try adding a little individual touch and make a gift that lasts forever!
