How Big Will My Dainty Fingerprint Necklace Be?
Dainty fingerprint necklaces measure approximately 9mm across although this will vary very slightly depending on the shape chosen.
For instance, dainty fingerprint discs, stars and halo's measure approximately 9mm across; moons and raindrops measure 9mm diagonally; hearts measure slightly smaller at 8mm across and both ovals and mini dog tags are slightly larger at 13mm when measured vertically.
They are all made to capture a real moulded fingerprint rather an engraving, although we are also able to engrave ink prints if necessary.
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 fingerprints onto these tiny gold necklaces, any custom hand engraving needs to be on the reverse.
There is plenty of space for one single letter or initial on the reverse to identify the owner of the fingerprint.
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 piece of jewellery.
Diagrams and photographs will be provided.
As the fingerprint takes up the entire surface of the piece, we are unable to set birthstones or diamonds into them but we can create separate gemstone settings on request.
Chains, bracelets, personalised name tags, gemstone settings and accessories are not included and if required, should be ordered separately.
Chains are 18" or 45cm as standard but can be ordered in various lengths on request.
Layering dainty pendants on different chains often works best when chains are different lengths. All prices shown on the Sophia Alexander website include free, fully insured postage within the UK.
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.
Our fingerprint jewellery is made to accommodate real, unique fingerprints of different shapes and sizes.
Fingerprint quality varies hugely between different people due to many factors, including age, health and condition the hands.
Some people naturally have less defined fingerprints than others. This can simply be hereditary.
All of these things will alter the look of the fingerprint keepsake you receive.
INFANTS We do not recommend fingerprinting infants below the age of 18 months, as before this, we find that their fingerprints have not fully developed.
Instead of a fingerprint with whorls, loops and arches, you will see a lovely little dimple, but no lines or detail.
Some infants have amazing fingerprints at a much younger age, whereas with some, their print is still not wonderfully clear by two years old or more.
If, when you submit your fingerprints we find that this is the case, we can simply try again at a later date for no additional charge.
Some customers are happy to go ahead with a tiny dimple impression. We are completely happy to proceed if this is the case.
OLDER PEOPLE In elderly people and where there has been a lot of wear and tear on the hands, fingerprint ridges can become less prominent. This can make the prints look less detailed and in some cases, a little blurred.
Many adults also have wrinkles and scars over their finger tips which can appear as missing sections in the ink print, but they are still very much part of the individual fingerprint.
PLEASE NOTE : If we do not feel that the fingerprint submitted is suitable, we will inform you immediately.
At Sophia Alexander, we understand that losing a loved one can be the most impossibly difficult and emotional time.
