Here’s where it all started over a decade ago. Our classic heart shaped fingerprint necklace. Still one of our most popular design to this day.
Available in white gold, rose gold, yellow gold and argentium silver.
We are proud to be able to offer every piece we make in ethical 9ct and 18ct fairtrade and fairmined gold.
This larger fingerprint necklace is perfect for adult fingerprints, longer names and personal written messages (although they look just as nice with perfect little fingerprints too!)
We will discuss the design with you before we start to work on your piece of jewellery.
You can add up to two fingerprints (depending on size and shape), but you can also add two hand prints, two footprints or two paw prints, as all impressions are carefully miniaturised to ensure a perfect fit.
Hand engrave with a name or set with a perfect birthstone or diamond to identify the owner of the print.
Every fingerprint is directly cast into the gold or silver, so that every impression is amazingly clear.
Add to a necklace chain in complimentary 9ct gold, 18ct gold or silver.
Add to a sterling silver or 9ct yellow gold keyring with beautiful traditional belcher chain.
Platinum chains are too fine to comfortably hold the weight of this piece.
Approximately the size of a 50 pence piece.
Reassuringly deep - approximately 2mm, giving every impression a wonderful 3 dimentional quality.
Large custom heart shaped fingerprint necklaces can be adapted for any impression. We will discuss every detail with you before we start to work on your piece of personalised jewellery.
Each piece is carefully hand crafted and completely different depending on the unique fingerprint taken by you. Beautifully and naturally bespoke.
We welcome any questions you might have.
DEPENDING ON SPACE
Large fingerprint necklaces are the perfect size for longer engraved names, dates and personal written messages. The shape of the fingerprint will determine exactly how much can be engraved.
Engrave to identify the owner of the fingerprint, handprint, footprint or pawprint.
We will discuss the design with you before we start to work on your piece of jewellery.
We are often asked to engrave quite long inscriptions on the reverse of these necklaces. Let us know what you would like and we will be able to tell you exactly what is possible.
Personalise your necklace further with one or more beautiful professionally set diamonds or birthstones.
