Creating pawfect jewellery is something we pride ourselves on here at Hand on Heart. As we’re celebrating our 13th birthday this summer, we thought we’d take the opportunity to celebrate our four-legged friends too – with our top thirteen picks of our favourite pawprint pieces. Better yet, our special business birthday also coincides with National Dog Day this summer, which is 26th August, and is the perfect excuse to spoil your pooch (and perhaps also treat yourself to a stunning pawprint keepsake!)
This is absolutely stunning in its simplicity if you’re looking for a petite keepsake made to love forever. This necklace is a little smaller than some of our other heart necklaces –the charm size is approximately W17mm x H15mm. It features the true pawprint and name of your beloved pet, and a special message or date can be engraved on the reverse. It’s beautifully presented on a 16-18” adjustable belcher chain and you have the option to choose a longer chain if you would prefer.
A versatile piece, this pawprint bead displays the true pawprint and name of your cherished pet. This bead is especially popular because it’s compatible with popular bracelets from Pandora, Chamilia, Troll and Lovelinks. Created using sterling silver, one side of this bead is engraved with a pawprint and the reverse with a name or date of your choice.
Does your dog get excited when they hear keys jingling because they know it’s walkies time? Well, you can make walkies even more special with this pawprint keyring which features the true pawprint of your pet. The tag-shaped keyring is crafted from stainless steel and is engraved with the print and name you supply. The reverse of the keyring can also be engraved with a message of your choosing – maybe you could even include the word ‘walkies’ as part of the message as a lovely nod to their favourite activity?
This necklace is slightly bigger than the first heart necklace we featured, at approximately W20mm x H22mm and a little more subtle in appearance. A lovely keepsake, the engraved heart necklace features your pet’s true pawprint and name. Created from sterling silver, the front of the necklace is engraved with a pawprint and name. The reverse can be engraved with a special message or date – perhaps their birthday? Or the date you brought them home?
We absolutely love this beautiful bracelet that captures the true pawprint from your best friend. There’s no doubt you could wear this sterling silver bracelet every day as it’s a classic design that goes with everything – it’s an 18-20cm adjustable belcher bracelet, and the charm size is approximately 15mm.
The emotion of this piece is reflected in this review, written by a customer who received this as a memorial pawprint keepsake gift, in memory of their precious pet.
Craig L said: “When our 7-year-old dog Pip died suddenly in September 2021, to say we were devastated would be an understatement. For my birthday, my husband and family wanted to give me a gift that would allow me to keep a little piece of my furbaby with me always. When I received my bracelet, which was beautifully packaged and included a personalised note from the jeweller who made the piece, we were all delighted with the result. It might sound silly, but the bracelet has a lovely weight to it. I can feel I am wearing it, so feels secure. While my heart still aches, it brings comfort to look down and see one of her tiny little pawprints, which have left deep and huge prints on our hearts. Unique, personal and a beautiful piece of handmade jewellery.”
