Are you looking to create a really unique gift for someone? If so, fingerprint or handprint jewellery is the perfect choice. Not only is each piece of jewellery unique, but the print you take is also capturing the most intricate detail of an individual print forever.
But is there a difference between fingerprint and handprint jewellery? Does the size of print dictate the type of item you can buy? If you’ve wondered about your available options and the processes used to create them, then read on!
Fingerprint and handprint jewellery
The beauty of fingerprint and handprint jewellery is no matter which option you choose, it will make for a great gift. They’re both suitable for any occasion, including birthdays, weddings or anniversaries.
There are also various options to choose from, catering for different preferences and tastes. Some of our items (such as our Handprint and Fingerprint Keyrings and the Men’s and Women’s Leather ID Handprint Bracelet) have space for up to four different prints. Many items also have capacity for a print on both the front and reverse side of an item - such as our Silver Ball Fingerprint Bracelet or the Silk Cord Handprint Bracelet.
Whether you opt for an intricately detailed fingerprint or the hand or footprint of your little one, prints are miniaturised by our experts and engraved onto quality products.
How to take the prints you need
No matter which option you choose, it’s easy to get the print you need.
Hand and footprints are taken using our non-toxic inkless wipe system, which is safe to use from birth. Taking a print is very easy; you simply need to follow our easy to use instructions which can be found here.
Fingerprints for our handcrafted range are taken using a special putty. This is also really easy to do, and you can view the instructions for taking prints here. Fingerprints tend to become more defined as children get older, but we have made charms using prints from very young children. Taking the thumbprint in young children can give a more defined print for us to work with.
What happens to the prints once you’ve finished?
We always keep a copy of the prints on file. Ideally, you’ll want to scan your prints before sending them. If you send us an original print and want it returned, you’ll need to email us and let us know.
The good news is that keeping the prints on files means it’s really easy for you to reorder if needed! Just quote your original order number when ordering again. If you’d like to browse our collections, you’ll find them both here - Fingerprint Gift Range, Handprint Gifts.
Both fingerprint and handprint jewellery make for a perfect gift. Not only are they unique, but they’re also a beautiful way to capture an event, mark an occasion or celebrate a moment in time. They’re the ideal way to capture the tiny handprint of a newborn, as well as treasuring the fingerprint of a loved one who’s passed - ensuring they’re always close to you and loved, no matter the passing of time or the distance involved.
