These hugely popular extra-large oval keyrings are perfect for displaying your child’s first scribbles, drawings, messages and special pictures.

They can be made in 9ct yellow gold and in premium, bright white, tarnish-resistant silver as standard. 

The prices listed show the pendant, plus the key fob and chain.  If you would like to purchase the pendant part separately, please get in touch.

We are immensely proud to also offer it in certified ethical 9ct fairtrade and fair mined gold.

At Sophia Alexander, every child's artwork keyring is custom made to order and we carefully shape every image to ensure a perfect fit.

Each line of your child's drawing is enhanced, perfectly miniaturised, and carefully cast into the gold or silver to ensure a wonderfully clear impression.

We can even hand engrave your child's very own handwritten message to Mummy. Add beautiful birthstones or diamonds to personalise it even further.

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 keepsake gift. 

Get in touch at any point.  We're here to help.


Each handmade personalised keepsake takes approximately 8 weeks to create

 once we have received your child's drawing. 

We will liaise with you at each stage of the making process, to keep you updated.



All our beautiful artwork keepsakes are handmade using the finest materials we can source.

Pendants of this size are available in 9ct yellow gold or tarnish-resistant silver as standard.

This is because keying fobs and chains are available in these precious metals only.

How Big Will My Child's Artwork Keyring Be ?

Oval-shaped artwork keyrings are quite large and heavy pieces and are not suitable to be hung as a necklace.

They are larger than a £2 coin and a little bigger than the dog tag in the photograph below.  

They measure approximately 30mm across x 38mm high, although these measurements may vary as each piece is handmade.  

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?

Large artwork keyrings are the perfect size for longer engraved names and dates.

The shape and size of your image will determine exactly how much can be engraved on the front, but there is usually plenty of space for short personal messages on the reverse.

We are often asked to engrave quite long inscriptions. 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 keepsake.

You can also choose to personalise your artwork keyring with one or more beautiful professionally set diamonds or birthstones.


Your Own Unique Keepsake

Every custom artwork keyring is individually made by hand and is completely unique.

Even if you order multiple copies of the same keyring, there will be slight differences.

The finished piece will completely depend on the image 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.



Large artwork keyrings provide plenty of space for beautiful precious birthstones, coloured gemstones, or diamonds.

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.

Please Note

Chains, keyrings, personalised name tags and accessories are not included and if required, should be ordered separately.

All prices shown on the Sophia Alexander website include free, fully insured postage within the UK.
For international orders, please contact the Sophia Alexander customer care team on 01440510050 before ordering.

Why Hand Engraving ?

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 custom jewellery, including your own signature and samples of your own handwriting.

Engraving Swatch
Engraved 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 personalised keepsake.

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 piece of jewellery. 

We are unfortunately unable to improve your handwriting!

There is no need to send us 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.

How Is It Made ?

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.

We welcome any questions you might have.

How Long Will It Take ?

All custom personalised 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.

How Will You Send It To Me ?

All prices shown on the Sophia Alexander website include free, fully insured postage  within the UK.

Luxury Gift Wrap Service

At Sophia Alexander, we firmly believe that your beautiful personalised keepsake gift deserves to be  perfectly packaged.

Every piece of personalised 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.

Please let us know how you would like your gift to arrive.

Is There Anything Else I Should Know ?

All custom gold and silver 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.

These things will all alter the look of your completed piece of jewellery or personalised gift.

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,, on social media pages and in other locations.
