MY EMAIL ADDRESS IS NOT VERIFIED AT CHECKOUT?
Please ensure there is no space after your email address at the checkout to complete your order.
ARE MY CHILDREN TOO OLD OR TOO BIG NOW?
No, we can use hand, foot and paw prints from any size or age. All prints are miniaturised, keeping unique detail which means that no hand, foot or paw is too big.
Fingerprints develop at different ages and we find children under the age of 12 months tend not to have yet developed defined prints, therefore, we recommend fingerprint jewellery for children over the age of 12 months and adults.
CAN YOU USE PRINTS I ALREADY HAVE?
Yes, we can use prints you may already have. When you place your order, simply select the option 'I will provide you with prints I already have', which can be done for any piece of print jewellery. Then all we need is a copy of the prints emailed to the Studio: email@example.com or a photocopy posted to the studio: Hand on Heart Jewellery, Hackthorpe Hall Business Centre, The North Range, Unit 1, Hackthorpe, Penrith, CA10 2HX.
If you would like us to check the prints first, please email a scanned copy to us and one of our designers will confirm the suitability. Once received into the studio, you will be notified via email by a member of the team.
CAN YOU USE THE SAME PRINTS AGAIN IF I RE-ORDER?
Yes, we love seeing happy customers return to us again and again. If we already hold prints on file for you, select the option ‘you already have my prints from a previous order’ when ordering. We can then get straight to work on your order without you having to re-take the prints.
HOW LONG DO YOU KEEP A COPY OF THE PRINTS?
We aim to keep a copy of all print impressions on file for 2 years, however, this is at the Company’s discretion and is not guaranteed. Unless requested otherwise, all original prints and impressions will be destroyed within two years. If you wish to keep the original prints, please do not send these to the Studio and instead provide us with a scanned copy via email. It may be possible for us to return your original prints if requested, however, this is not guaranteed. Please note that a charge will occur for posting the prints to you. Please contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to request any prints.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HANDCRAFTED PRODUCTS AND ENGRAVED PRODUCTS AND WHAT TYPE OF FINISH CAN I EXPECT?
Handcrafted Jewellery is created by hand from start to finish using a detailed process where the fingerprint, foot, paw or handprint from a loved one is impressed deep into the material and as a result of this every piece will vary in shape and size slightly. The print is then oxidised, turning the print black and bringing out the true, unique detail. All of our pieces are put through a very careful and delicate finishing process, which sees the metal polished with different grains to eventually achieve a beautiful, shiny finish- but one that is never going to be 'flawless'. This in no way takes away from the beauty of our charms and you can expect a very high standard of finish. We recommend our handcrafted jewellery for pieces which will have a lot of wear.
Engraved Jewellery features the prints and text engraved onto the surface of the metal by machine, which brings out an off white impression of your desired fingerprint, footprint, pawprint or handprint and provides a more subtle look to the hand-crafted jewellery. The prints reflect the light so will appear white in sunlight and darker in shade. We recommend engraved jewellery for special occasion wear.
For further information on the two different design techniques, please visit our Engraved v’s Handcrafted page here.
WHAT TYPE OF PRINTS CAN I USE ON MY ORDER?
Handprints, footprints and pawprints are interchangeable on the designs, however, if you wish to use a fingerprint but cannot see the design option available online, please, contact the studio and a member of the dedicated design team will confirm if we are able to fulfil your request.
ARE THE CHARMS STERLING SILVER?
Our handcrafted jewellery is made from 925 sterling silver, so you can rest assure we use silver of the highest quality. For engraved products, the material used for each product is included in each product description.
WILL MY PIECE OF JEWELLERY BE HALLMARKED?
The majority of our sterling silver jewellery designs do not exceed the required hallmarking weight of 7.78g, however, if your item does exceed this weight, your item will be hallmarked.

HOW WILL I KNOW WHICH PRINT IS BEING USED TO CREATE MY ORDER?
If you have a specific print you wish to be used on your order, please mark the print and confirm your request when supplying your prints.

If, when your prints are received, our designers feel the prints may not provide a good result, a member of the team will contact you to discuss the options available.
WILL MY PRINTS BE CLEANED UP?
