The Custom FINGERPRINT Necklaces are one of my absolutely favorite pieces in the collection. Not only is each person's fingerprint 100% unique to the person, but even the way the impressions come out are special and distinctive. We have had lots of questions lately about the pricing and process on those, so I just wanted to give some additional information.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS?
Once we receive the 50% non-refundable deposit paid through our website, we will send you a capture kit which includes instructions and tips for getting the best print.
WHAT SIZE ARE SIZES OF THE PRINTS?
Because each of the prints are unique, they can vary in size a bit. Our best guesstimation is 15-18 mm.
WHAT AGE IS THESE BEST FOR CAPTURING PRINTS?
You can do them at any age, because any little indentation has a way of being precious... but we suggest 2 yrs and up for the best detail.
WHY A RANGE FOR THE PRICE?
We try to do these as economically as we can, but the truth is that gold has gone up and the fingerprints are weighty (because we like them that way) and the process takes time from preparing the kits, to when we receive the prints back until they are perfect and ready for you. Some pieces need more work and some need less. We could mark all projects up to the higher number to cover ourselves, but we find the range allows us to be more on target.
WHAT ARE ADD ON'S?
There are several add on's that can affect the price of the necklace- length of the chain and hand engravings.
The basic pricing for the fingerprints is for an 18" chain. We originally offered them at 16", but have found that most people like them at 18", so we edited that so that the base is at 18". I love them longer. Mine is 28", but I am tall and like it longer. To each her own on the length. Every 2 inches longer you go, there is an additional
Most people opt for the hand engraving on the reverse side of the fingerprints. They are so sweet and really make the necklace even more special.
All add on's will be charged in the initial payment. If you happen to make a change to add something after the deposit has been paid, the additional charge will be reflected on the final bill.
HOW LONG DO THEY TAKE TO COMPLETE?
The process can take 6-8 weeks from the day that we receive the completed kit back from you.
If you are interested in getting this for a special day, but don't have 6-8 weeks, you can start the process and give the kit as the gift. We have found doing the kits with family to be super special.
IS THERE A LESS EXPENSIVE OPTION?
These pieces are labor Intensive and on the weightier side, so there is not a less expensive version available. We get that this price point and process is not for everyone.
CAN WE DO A FINGERPRINT POSTHUMOUSLY?
We have two ways of doing this, while neither is as perfect as capturing the print with our kit. If you have an impression of the print that you can use to capture a fingerprint, we can do it that way. We can also laser engrave
