Fingerprint jewellery is a lovely way to express sentiment through your jewellery. If fingerprint jewellery is a new phenomenon to you, hopefully after this article, it shouldn’t be anymore!
What is fingerprint jewellery?
Fingerprint jewellery is a very personal type of jewellery which involves a fingerprint (surprise surprise) of a person, or animal, that is then printed on a piece of jewellery, usually a charm to wear on a necklace, bracelet or sometimes a key ring. This fingerprint can be of a child to a parent, of a family member who has passed away, a husband to wife or pretty much of or to any loved one.
What types of fingerprint jewellery can I buy?
Fingerprint jewellery comes in many shapes and forms. For women, you can have fingerprint charm necklaces, bracelets, rings and key rings and for men, you can have them on cufflinks, rings or key rings. They are a hugely diverse type of personal jewellery that is popular amongst many different types of people and varying ages.
How does the fingerprint get to the jewellery?
Each seller will have a different way of telling you how to capture your fingerprint but one of the easiest and most common ways to do this is to rub the finger in pencil lead and then print onto a piece of paper which you then send off to the seller. Alternatively, often places will send you a mould with instructions on how to make your fingerprint mould. Have a look at this guide on how to create your mould.
What’s the right type of fingerprint jewellery for me?
As previously stated, fingerprint jewellery can be executed in a number of different forms which different people will favour. Although fingerprint jewellery is marketed towards all demographics, usually, the higher sales are with women mostly due to the fact women wear more jewellery. This means that there is more variety out there for women with necklaces, bracelets, rings and keyrings. For men, I would recommend mainly cufflinks and rings.
What is the jewellery made from?
Primarily, the jewellery is from silver or gold because it is precious and long lasting. However, silver does need to be cared for properly to keep it looking its best. Silver and gold are long lasting which makes them perfect for fingerprint jewellery as they are meant to be made for life.
