We receive many questions about the detail differences in our silhouette charms, so today we’re exploring the sizing differences between our most popular piece, the Classic Silhouette Charm Necklace, and what this means to you when building your heirloom jewelry collection.

If you’ve seen our Silhouette Charms, whether on Instagram or our website, you’ll notice we offer three sizes: Tiny, Medium, and Large. Depending on your style and priorities, one size may be a better fit for you than the others. The biggest difference between the sizes is the level of detail we are able to capture, such as tiny curls and other unique characteristics of your loved one. Scroll down to read more about the various sizes we offer and what we are able to include on each one. Regardless of the size you choose, each silhouette charm is thoughtfully designed and beautifully crafted to provide you with a cherished piece of jewelry to honor your story and keep your loved ones close to your heart. 

All Classic Silhouette Charm Necklaces are available in sterling silver and 14K solid yellow, rose, and white gold, with 14K yellow gold being our most popular metal choice.


This silhouette makes a wonderful heirloom gift for mom. The smallest charms we offer, our Tiny Silhouette Charms are designed to be worn daily. Ideal for the mom who prefers daintier jewelry, either worn on its own or layered with other necklaces. 

Due to the charm’s size, some of the facial features and hair details may be less noticeable and not as clear compared to the actual silhouette portrait proof you will receive. If this is an issue for you, please scroll down to see if the Medium or Large Charms would better fit your vision of your custom heirloom piece.
