How Big Will My Handprint or Footprint Pendant Be ?
Handprint or footprint charms 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.
How Much Room Is There For Extra Details?
To fit your handprint or footprint onto these tiny gold and silver charms, in most cases, engraving needs to be on the reverse.
Although there may be space next to the handprint to fit a number, or set of initials, this cannot be guaranteed.
We can discuss this with you further, once we have assessed handprint or footprint impressions.
The shape of your print will determine exactly how much can be engraved on the front, but there is usually plenty of space for initials, a short name or word up to approximately 5 letters on the reverse.
Let us know what you would like and we will be able to tell you exactly what is possible.
The handprints and footprints added to our tiny charms are much smaller than the ones we add to our necklaces, larger pendants, and keyrings. These smaller prints have much smaller details. They are still very much your very special prints, but not every line will be visible.
We will make sure you are completely happy with your miniaturised prints and discuss all aspects of the design with you before we proceed with your order.
You can also choose to personalise your handprint charm with a single beautiful professionally set diamond or birthstone.
Chains, bracelets, personalised name tags and accessories are not included and if required, should be ordered separately.
Every piece of custom handprint or footprint jewellery is individually made by hand and is completely unique.
Even if you order multiple copies of the same keepsake, there will be slight differences.
The finished piece will completely depend on the handprints or footprints taken by you.
Handprints and footprints vary hugely between individuals. The lines and details vary in number and clarity, so every pendant is naturally one of a kind.
Some people naturally have less detailed prints than others. This can simply be hereditary.
The more prints you have added to your pendant, the smaller these prints will be and the smaller the details you will be able to see. Not every line will be visible. We welcome any questions you might have.
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.
We are able to set beautiful precious birthstones, coloured gemstones or diamonds into most of our fingerprint jewellery.
We provide the option to add a single birthstone or diamond as standard, but please get in touch if you would like to add additional precious stones.
The exact position of diamonds and birthstones can be confirmed in writing after you have placed your order, so you do not have to decide straight away.
All personalised handprint and footprint jewellery takes 8 weeks to create once your impressions have been received, not from the order date.
Every piece of jewellery is handmade using traditional jewellery techniques.
Your jewellery is carved in wax, cast, engraved, stone set, polished and hallmarked by the relevant expert.
It is a lengthy process and it is not possible for us to “speed it up” or to provide an express service.
We believe that every gold and silver keepsake we make is worth the wait.
We aim to have all gold and silver jewellery complete within 8 weeks,unless something completely unexpected occurs.
All prices shown on the Sophia Alexander website include free, fully insured postage within the UK.We use the Royal Mail Special Delivery™ Next Day service, so your pendant will be delivered to you by 1pm on an agreed date.
The package will be tracked and it will require a signature on arrival.
Overseas shipping is priced for each individual order and varies.
It can be as much as £100 to ship jewellery insured from the UK, depending where on the world you are, so please get in touch.
At Sophia Alexander, we firmly believe that your beautiful personalised fingerprint gift deserves to be perfectly packaged.
Every piece of fingerprint jewellery 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.
All custom gold and silver fingerprint and impression jewellery 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 and hoof print jewellery 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 and hoof prints 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 or hoof print 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.
