Who are Hand on Heart Jewellery?
The Hand on Heart studio is located in the picturesque town of Penrith on the edge of the Lake District. After years of experimenting with silver, sisters Heather and Amanda developed and perfected a technique to transfer images into silver. They then started making unique jewellery for family and friends, which soon developed into creating our unique personalised jewellery.
"We quickly realised that there was a gap in the market for a top quality keepsake jewellery company", and in 2009 Hand on Heart Jewellery was founded. Perfectionists at heart and sticklers for great customer service, Amanda knew that the company would be special - after all, "our jewellery is so unique, the company needs to be too". Hand on Heart started to grow into a jewellery company that would put quality and customer service at the very heart of everything it does.
In the Summer of 2014, Hand on Heart made the move to new premises in Penrith, Cumbria to accommodate the fast growing team of staff and designers that now help run the company. This fabulous team have been specially selected by Amanda, not only for their skills, but also as people who care about customers, products and the company as much as its founders do. Despite our dizzying growth, the company has remained true to its core values of top quality, excellent value and second-to-none customer service. Hand on Heart want to offer products and experiences that create lasting memories and can be treasured for years to come.

The company has always had an impressive growth since 2009, but more recently has seen a huge spike in popularity over the past 2 years. This is due to the attention to detail of their industry leading products along with some 'world first' product launches. This coupled with celebrity endorsements from the likes of Helen Skelton, Fearne Cotton and Britain's Got Talent winners Ashley & Pudsey has allowed Hand on Heart to achieve record breaking sales targets.
The dizzying growth to become the UK's leading designers and suppliers of personalised handcrafted jewellery has allowed the company to expand its marketing arm to Keighley, West Yorkshire. The move has many foreseen benefits, with close links to the northern powerhouse and digital hub of Leeds, which opens up huge opportunities for Hand on Heart to recruit new team members with skills not necessarily found in other parts of the UK. The new Keighley office and studio will mean customers in the local areas will have the ability to visit Hand on Heart Jewellery by appointment to browse the gift range and place orders in person as well as on the website.
The brand new office and studio is situated in the busy town centre and the move is already reaping great rewards for Hand on Heart. A brand new website layout has already been launched, along with over 100 exciting new products, many of which are 'world first' gifts that have never been created before. The new website is fully responsive and can be accessed on the move using mobile phones and tablet devices, to place orders and interact with the brand on many social media channels including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, Pinterest, Vine and Periscope.
Hand on Heart have recently launched internationally, with products and delivery now available to the United States, Australia and New Zealand markets with plans to break into Canada, China and Europe before the end of 2016. These huge changes in such a short period of time will ensure further growth for the fast paced digital based company who have big things planned for the future.
Growth has been the plan for Hand on Heart Jewellery, with big targets set and plans in place to expand the brand to new audiences, not only across Yorkshire but around the globe. It is almost certain we will be seeing a lot more of the company in the future as keepsake jewellery is becoming the must have gift for loved ones in 2016.
