5 out of 5 stars

The packaging was outstanding! All the way from the wrapping to each individual item in the box. They even made a personalized, hand written note on the box. I thought that was really kind of them to show their appreciation. I would recommend this to anyone who would like alternative jewelry for them and their loved one to cherish.

wonderful sellers through and through. so very accommodating and the packaging is sick. I bought these for my best friend and I. she lives in Czech and I live in the US. I was planning on filling a vial and sending her both so she could fill the unused vial and send it back to me. after I bought them, she surprised me with the news that she’ll be visiting the States in July, so we can fill them together. we can’t wait to do this and I’ll be updating my review to let everyone know how it goes but with the extremely clear instructions provided with the kit, I’m sure it’s all going to be swell and fun. thank you all again for being so cool and pleasant. highly recommended!!

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ Welcome to Love In Vein™ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

We supply gorgeous Blood Vessel kits which allow you to fill beautiful glass vials with your, and your loved one's blood.

When we were living 1000 miles apart, we filled our first set of vials, and wore them close to our hearts. It helped make the distance a little smaller, and a little more bearable.

We realised that there are distance-torn couples across the world and thus our beautiful and oh-so-carefully-crafted kits were born!

We have sourced the most suitable products worldwide and have arrived at the most intimate, least painful and above all; most hygienic process possible.
The kit comes complete with everything you need to complete the process - with the exception of 2 household items which will be advised as soon as the kit ships as well as tips and hints for completion of the process.

Our gorgeous kits have shipped worldwide including United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Germany, South Africa, Sweden, France, New Zealand, Italy, Austria, Spain, Norway, Belgium, Israel, United Arab Emirates!

We encourage you to ask questions before purchasing a kit, to ascertain if it's the "right" thing for you and your parter; and will happily give advice and experiential anecdotes prior to the use of your kit.

❤ At Love In Vein™, we pride ourselves on our flexibility so please convo us with any queries or requests if you are unsure of the above!❤

Do all Love In Vein kits include Anticoagulant?

Yep!
Each of our kits includes enough medical-grade anticoagulant to make two complete pendant kits!

Custom and personalized orders

Yes, definitely!
Every single kit includes all of the jewelry components and medical accessories to make two full pendants!

Custom and personalized orders

Each kit comes with all components for two full necklaces but if you would like 1/2 kit, we can certainly do that!

The cost of a 1/2 kit is 65% of the regular kit price. Please convo us to set up a special listing!

Custom and personalized orders

Although we include medical-grade anticoagulant in each kit and comprehensive instructions on achieving liquidity, sadly it's impossible to guarantee that blood will remain liquid as it begins cxidizing and coagulating as soon as it comes into contact with Oxygen.

We have, however, had vials remain liquid up to 7 years (and counting!) after filling!
