UK Orders

As each design is handmade exclusively by a designer, so we book a design slot for your piece(s) to be created as you place your order, this ensures that we can guarantee a delivery date for you at the time of ordering. The date to return your prints or artwork by will be clearly displayed at checkout, on your confirmation and on your printing kits. This date is usually between 8-12 days from placing your order, depending on the time of year.

International Orders

We ask that prints or artwork are returned within 28 days of your order being placed or your print kit being received.

If you miss the date to return your prints, don't worry, you can still return your artwork up to 12 weeks from the date you placed your order. In this case, delivery will be within 6 weeks from us receiving your artwork - please bear this in mind if you need your order for a specific date.

If we don't receive your artwork within the 12 weeks from your order date, your order will be cancelled without refund.

As long as your order has not entered production, our customer service team would be happy to help you make any necessary changes. If you do need to change anything on your order, we would recommend contacting us as soon as possible, before your prints are returned, to ensure we are able to do so.

Our jewellery is created in a working studio which, due to insurance reasons, we are unable to open to the public. If you do need any assistance placing your order you can contact our friendly customer service team on studio@handonheartjewellery.co.uk or by using the livechat facility on our website.

We would be sorry to see you go but if, for any reason, you did wish to cancel your order you are able to do so within 14 days from your order being placed., this is your "cooling-off period". Please note that this does not apply if we have already started creating your order.

If you have been supplied with printing kits for your order, a £5 charge for each will apply to your cancellation.

Products

Imprint Jewellery is created 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 to 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 Imprint 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, paw print or handprint and provides a more subtle look than 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.

Our Imprint jewellery is made from 925 sterling silver, so you can rest assured we use silver of the highest quality. For engraved products, the material used for each product is included in each product description.

When ordering your necklace you will be able to choose from a range different length chains.

If you would like to replace your current chain, please contact us on studio@handonheartjewellery.co.uk.

We certainly do. Hand on Heart Jewellery gift packs include a voucher and a selection of printing kits, making them the perfect present for any special occasion and can be purchased on our website.

Supplying Prints

 No, we can use hand, foot and paw prints from any one of any age. All prints are miniaturised to fit on your chosen item of jewellery 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.

Yes, we are often able to work with prints which you already have. When you place your order, simply select the option 'I will supply you with prints I already have', which can be done for any piece of print jewellery. You can then submit your prints quickly and easily using our magic uploader. If you would like us to check the prints first, please email a scanned copy or clear photo of the prints to us at studio@handonheartjewellery.co.uk and one of our dedicated designers will confirm the suitability and recommend which pieces we feel would work best for your print.

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.

Your printing kit will come with full instructions and you can take a look at our how-to videos on the website for some more help. If you are struggling to take prints, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us so that a member of our team can help.

Our inkless printing kits are from a supplier in the USA who also supplies all the maternity hospitals with these kits. They are designed for taking newborn handprints, as in the US this is used for identification purposes. We have been using these kits for over 6 years and never had any issues with skin irritation, but as with all solutions applied to the skin, there is a small chance of irritation so these wipes do have to hold warnings. We do spend a lot of time researching and testing all of our products and would never use anything that would harm any child, adult or pet.

If you are unable to take a print for your order, we do have a lovely range of generic hand, foot and paw prints which can be used to create our jewellery. If you do wish to use a generic print, we would ask you to contact us via email or livechat so that a member of the team can help you place your order.

Not at all, you can supply your prints after you place your order using one of our Magic Print Kits, or provide a copy of prints that you already have. Simply take the prints and upload using our Magic Print Uploader by the date quoted when ordering.

Of course, 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 and enter your previous order number when asked, we can then get straight to work on your order without you having to retake the prints. If the prints you would like to use have been supplied by somebody else, we may require them to give written permission for you to use the prints. For more information on this, please contact our customer service team.

We aim to keep a digital copy of prints on file for 2 years, however, this is at the company's discretion and is not guaranteed. While we do return fingerprints with your finished order, we are unable to return hand, foot or paw prints and if you wish to keep these we would recommend supplying a digital copy only to our studio to be used on your jewellery.

Some of our pieces are hallmarked but many designs do not exceed the required hallmarking weight of 7.78g. If your sterling silver item does exceed this weight, your item will be hallmarked.

If you do not receive your printing kit within 5 working days of it being dispatched from the studio, please let us know via email or livechat so a member of our team can resolve this for you.

All handprints, footprints, fingerprints, paw prints, drawings, handwriting, ultrasound scans and sound clips can be submitted quickly and easily via our magic print uploader, all we need is a clear photo and some order information which will be provided in your confirmation email.

When using the uploader, you can only upload one photo at a time so if you are supplying more than one image, they will need to be submitted separately.

Any print or artwork return deadlines will be confirmed at the time of ordering, and on the printing kit if supplied. We ask that you try to meet these deadlines to ensure that we have time to create and deliver your order in the timescale quoted.


If you miss the date to return your prints, don't worry, you can still return your artwork up to 12 weeks from the date you placed your order. In this case, delivery will be within 6 weeks from us receiving your artwork - please bear this in mind if you need your order for a specific date.

When supplying your prints or artwork via our magic print uploader, an automatic email will be sent to confirm a successful upload. The design team will then contact you via email to confirm the suitability of the print/artwork and confirm your estimated delivery date, this is usually within 5 working days of upload. If you have paid for an express service, your prints/artwork shall be processed within 1 working day.

If you have posted your prints to us, these shall be opened and processed within 2 working days of receipt. The design team will then contact you via email to confirm the suitability of the print/artwork and confirm your estimated delivery date.

Sometimes, taking prints can be tricky so we suggest reading the instructions supplied in full before using the kits. If you would like to try taking more prints, you can order additional printing kits via our website.

If you would like to check the suitability of the prints before submitting them for your order, you can email them to us at studio@handonheartjewellery.co.uk and a member of the design team will take a look.

When submitting your prints using our magic print uploader you will be asked for the name and age of the person whom the prints belong to. If you are supplying prints of more than one person or pet, remember to fill out separate forms for each print so the correct name and age is applied to the image. This information is sent directly to our design team so that we can make sure your order is created perfectly.

If you have a specific print you wish to be used on your order, please mark the print by circling it or popping a star or arrow next to it so that our design team know which one to work with. Otherwise, your designer will proceed with your order using the print they believe will provide the best result. 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.

Prints or artwork are not altered in any way, as this would take away from the unique idea of using loved ones' prints and the prints will appear on the jewellery as they are in the images supplied. However, our designers will remove any unwanted marks or smudges from around the artwork or prints.

We do not supply proofs as standard, however, this is a service we can offer if requested. If you do wish for our design team to create a proof, please contact us before you return your prints so this can be arranged. Please be advised that this can add up to 5 working days onto the dispatch of your order.

We like to keep you updated on the progress of your order, so you will be notified at each stage of the process by email. If you are a registered customer, you can also check your order progress by logging into your account.

Each one of our designs is created by hand using a variety of techniques to ensure each piece is perfect.

These dates can be found on each design page on the website, and are also confirmed at checkout when placing your order.
