Treat your partner, husband, Father or Grandfather to a touch of luxury with these delightful little artwork cufflinks, perfect for displaying your child’s first scribbles, drawings, messages and special pictures.
Available in 9ct white gold, 9ct yellow gold and premium, bright white, tarnish-resistant silver.
We are immensely proud to also offer the child's drawing parts of your cufflinks in certified ethical 9ct fairtrade and fair mined gold * * (see below).
Every set of artwork cufflinks is custom made to order and we carefully shape around your child's special picture to ensure a perfect fit.
They can be made to fasten with either a contemporary U arm fixing as seen here, or with a ball and stem fixing as seen here.
At Sophia Alexander, every set of artwork cufflinks is handmade to order.
We have over a decade of experience dealing with bespoke jewellery commissions.
Your design will be discussed with you in detail before we start to work on your cufflinks.
Every detail is immortalised in stunning 9ct gold or tarnish-resistant silver.
All children's artwork cufflinks are available in the precious metals seen below:
|Tarnish Resistant Silver||9ct Yellow Gold||9ct White Gold|
|9ct Yellow Fairtrade Gold||9ct White Fairtrade Gold|
Shaped artwork cufflinks are approximately the size of a 5 pence piece.
They are all made to be reassuringly deep at approximately 2mm, giving every impression a wonderful 3-dimensional quality.
Due to the design of our artwork charms, your child's picture will take up the entire front of each piece and it is not possible to engrave to engrave alongside them.
However, there may be space for initials, a short name or word up to approximately 5 letters on the back of each cufflink.
We can even hand engrave your child's very own handwritten special word to Mummy or Daddy on the reverse.
Let us know what you would like and we will be able to tell you exactly what is possible.
We will discuss all aspects of the design with you before we start to work on your cufflinks.
Please get in touch to discuss this further.
Every set of custom artwork cufflinks is individually made by hand and is completely unique.
Even if you order multiple copies of the same cufflinks, there will be slight differences.
The finished cufflinks will completely depend on the images sent in by you.
Simple line drawings translate best onto the gold or silver. Very busy drawings with tiny lines smaller than 1mm may not be clear enough to be seen. If there are lots of very tiny elements, with small details that will not be visible, some may not be included.
We also cannot include colouring or shading, but please don't worry, we are very practiced at making small adjustments to drawings and removing colour if this is what you want. They will still very much be unique to your child.
We welcome any questions you might have.
Our Engraving Fonts and Styles
Hand Engraving is a traditional craft and skill dating back to the middle ages, that involves a considerable measure of skill, knowledge and training.
It involves an in depth knowledge of different precious metals, impeccable attention to detail, artistic skill and patience.
Hand engraving is known to be deeper and longer lasting than other methods of engraving jewellery. The engraving also tends to be sharper and has a more even cut.
Our entire aim is to create quality pieces of jewellery that you and your future generations can treasure.
The hand engravers we work with have many years of experience and are experts in their field.
We are confident that they are able to engrave most styles of writing onto our keepsakes, including your own signature and samples of your own handwriting.
For those customers interested in having samples of handwriting engraved, our hand engravers are able to engrave almost any style of handwriting onto your piece of fingerprint jewellery.
Their specialist knowledge and attention to detail are second to none.
Some examples of handwriting that we have engraved, include signatures; personal messages; writing from the inside of old birthday cards; writing from children’s drawings and writing from the backs of old photographs.
Writing can be from a child or adult, but it is important that it is legible.
The handwriting sample you send will be replicated on your keepsake.
We are unfortunately unable to improve your handwriting!
There is no need to send us your original, sentimental writing samples.If you have a scanner, you can scan and email us a copy of the handwriting, or, you can send us a good photocopy.
Each piece of personalised impression jewellery is first handmade in premium jewellers wax, then it is sent to be precision cast at one of the UK's leading precious metal casting houses.
Here, a mould is made and molten silver or gold is poured inside, leaving a pure, solid, quality keepsake.
We hand finish, polish, engrave and stone set. Finally, each piece is hallmarked by a UK Assay Office to verify it’s quality and purity.
1. Once you have placed your order, we will contact you to make sure we have all the correct personal information.
2. When ordering children's drawing or artwork keepsakes, you will not require an impression kit.
Instead, you can photograph or scan your child's drawing and either email this to us or send it via any of our social media channels.
There is no need to send us your precious original.
If you would like to send us a physical copy in the post, we are more than happy to send you a pre-paid postal envelope so you can send it to us directly via a Royal Mail tracked and signed-for service.
3. If your child has not yet drawn their special picture, we will send you some helpful hints and tips to guide you (and them) as some images translate onto keepsakes better than others.
4. We will provide you with edits of your child's drawing before we create your keepsake in wax to make sure you are completely happy with the final design.
5. Once you are completely happy with the design, we will create your piece of personalised jewellery.
We be in touch at every stage of the process to give you regular updates.
6. Every piece of jewellery and keepsake we create is sent to the UK Assay Office to be hallmarked.
At Sophia Alexander, we are frequently asked to make duplicate copies of charms, necklaces or other gifts.
Each keepsake is individually handmade. Therefore, it is completely unique.
Even if you order multiple copies of the same piece of jewellery, there will be slight differences.
Every keepsake we make is naturally one of a kind.
We welcome any questions you might have.

We aim to have all gold and silver jewellery complete within 8 weeks, unless something completely unexpected occurs.

At Sophia Alexander, we firmly believe that your beautiful personalised gift deserves to be perfectly packaged.
Every piece of jewellery and keepsake gift will arrive presented in a elegant, branded white leatherette gift box, with a black velvet interior and a white swing bag.
We carefully tie every box with a beautifully designed Sophia Alexander white and silver chiffon ribbon and enclose a complimentary gift card in each bag, which we can personalise for you, or leave blank for you to add a message yourself.
We finish every package with a handmade wax seal.
For those clients who wish to see the item they have ordered before they give it to the recipient, we can send the finished keepsake with the ribbons untied and the wax seal supplied separately, so that the piece can be seen before adding these yourself.
Please let us know how you would like your gift to arrive.
Every piece of custom gold and silver jewellery we create is handmade and personalised for each individual client.
We provide you with approximate product colours, dimensions and weights. However, variations in size and the surface appearance of silver and gold may occur, and should be expected.
We provide images and figures as guidance only.
Photographs of fingerprint, handprint, footprint, paw print, hoof print jewellery and other keepsakes may not be displayed at their actual size. Different computer monitors may alter the perceived sizes of products and colours of the precious metals.
Keepsakes are made to accommodate fingerprints, handprints, footprints, paw prints, hoof prints and other impressions of different shapes and sizes.
Prints taken may vary in quality and clarity. This can simply be due to age, health, condition or hereditary factors.
Names, words and messages are sized according to different fonts and lengths.
Gemstones, diamonds, semi-precious stones and pearls may also vary in colour, size and shape.
These things will all alter the look of your completed piece of jewellery or personalised gift.
If we do not feel that the prints submitted are suitable, we will inform you immediately.
This all means that the fingerprint, handprint, footprint, paw print, hoof print or impression jewellery you purchase will inevitably vary slightly from the photographed images seen on our website, www.sophia-alexander.com, on social media pages and in other locations.
