I have always loved personalised jewellery. It’s such a unique gift which can mean so much. I was recently introduced to True Love Keepsakes who create personalised jewellery from fingerprints, handprints and footprints in Solid Silver. I was sent a piece of jewellery to review that captured the fingerprints of my two boys and having seen the final piece, I just love the results.
True Love Keepsakes create a beautiful range of personalised jewellery suitable for every occasion. Whether you want to capture your little ones handprints when they’re young, your loved ones fingerprints or someone specials footprint, there is a piece of jewellery for everyone. I am not a huge jewellery wearer but I do love personalised jewellery and will wear it on special occasions and those times when I feel like I need some moral / emotional support and I want to be close to someone.
Having spent a considerable amount of time on the True Love Keepsakes website, I decided that I would love to capture my boys fingerprints so I chose a beautiful Double Fingerprint Heart Charm Chain worth £145. I loved how the piece could include both my boys fingerprints and I could wear the necklace and keep both of their unique prints close to my heart.
Once you place an order on the website, you’re sent a kit with full instructions on how to capture your unique fingerprints. We were sent two little pots of putty which I had to easily mix together and create little balls that the boys then pushed their finger into. It was a relatively easy process even with a wriggly one year old. Olly’s fingerprint has more definition as he’s much older whereas Freddie’s little fingerprint is still developing. Once the fingerprints had been taken and I had waited the allocated time for the putty to solidify, I popped them into the little named bags that were sent with the kit and returned them using the stamped addressed envelope.
My personalised jewellery was created within a couple of weeks and I am really impressed with the quality. The necklace arrived in a display jewellery box which is a perfect way to keep such a precious gift. It’s a beautiful necklace with two heart charms on, one for each of my boys. I love that their names are written on the charms too. It really helps me identify the fingerprint and know which one of my boys it came from. The necklace is an 18″ sterling silver snake chain and perfectly holds the heart charms. It’s such a lovely keepsake and one that I will cherish forever.
