You are welcome to order just a kit to capture the fingerprint just now. Keep the prints safe and they can be used when you are ready to order jewellery in the future.

Order the kit from the online shop. Go to 'Kits' section then select which kit you'd like.

DIGITAL or INK PRINT FINGERPRINTS

If you are choosing to make fingerprint jewellery from an ink fingerprint - this is the ordering process.

#1 - I already have the digital/ink prints needed to make my jewellery - what’s next?

Covid -19 and Impressive Memories

Covid -19 and Impressive Memories

Covid -19 and Impressive Memories

Unless you’ve been living under a stone recently you will be well aware that Covid-19 is making its unwelcome presence increasingly well known amongst us.

Until such times as we know more, or have further guidelines, I would like to take this opportunity to keep customers informed as to how I am dealing with the impact of the Coronavirus here at Impressive Memories.

Due to the nature of my work which often involves contact with new & young babies/children, people with serious & terminal illness, elderly customers and pets, I already follow procedures to ensure a clean and safe environment for anyone visiting. 

Making a Booking

You are still very welcome to make a booking. If you then feel unwell and wish to amend your booking you are welcome to do this via the link in your confirmation booking up to 48 hours before. If you should develop symptoms within the 48 hours before your booking please contact me on 07837800353 and we will discuss the safest options for us all. 

Visiting the Studio

If you have a prearranged booking please arrive and enter the studio by the main studio doors (not my personal front door/doorbell). If you arrive early and other customers are still here, please wait in your car in the driveway until others leave and I have had time to wipe down surfaces and floors with appropriate cleaning materials. 

As much as I want you to enjoy your visit and for it to be a thoroughly enjoyable and memorable experience, could I please ask (in the short term) that only essential people come to the appointment. You are more than welcome to take photographs or videos to share with friends and family while you are here. Let’s also keep bags etc to a minimum. 

I have antibacterial hand wipes which we will all use on arrival. Or you can bring your own if you prefer. 

Jewellery and display items (which are cleaned regularly anyway) will still be here but (in the short term) these should not be handled.

Again, in the short term, no toilet facilities will be offered during your visit. (Please don’t pee on my daffodils either - thanks)

Covid -19 and Impressive Memories 1

If you do not have a prearranged booking please do not arrive unannounced. 

Home Visits

For the foreseeable future, home-visits will not be offered. 

Memorial/Bereavement Call Outs

These are unaffected yet. I will be following the guidance of those within the medical/funeral industry. As ever, each case is decided on an individual basis and will continue that way until further guidance is offered. 

Collecting Completed Orders from Impressive Memories

We will have prearranged the date and time for you to collect your completed orders. Please be punctual and follow the same advice as above - if you arrive and others are here, please wait outside until they have left, before entering via the main studio doors.

Waving and smiling are still allowed.  

Online Orders

Element/Fingerprint kits

If you are posting fingerprints/elements back to me I trust that you have done all you can to maintain a safe and clean environment whilst capturing the prints/elements. Please consider your safety and mine, as I do the same before sending items to you.

Delivery of Completed Orders

At this stage 15.03.2020, Royal Mail has not made any changes to their Special Delivery service, but they have changed the process used to sign for your packages. As far as I am aware your postie will not ask you to digitally sign but they will do this on your behalf. This signature will still be the indicator that your parcel has been delivered successfully.

If you have any concerns about this and wish to postpone the delivery of your order please contact me asap. 

You will still receive an email the day your item is posted, with your tracking code, and it will arrive by 1pm the following day.

CONCLUSION

I’m approaching this with as much common sense as I can. It is a strange situation we find ourselves in and we can only do our best to keep the impact of the virus to a minimum. 

If you have any concerns or questions you are welcome to contact me by email [email protected]

It goes without saying that I will continue to do everything I can to help you capture your Impressive Memories. I would ask that you are honest and open with me during the coming weeks (months?) and that we work together, under the guidance of medical/professionals to ensure your safety and mine. 

Stay safe, I’m sure normality will return soon!

Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2020

Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2020

What do you buy your mum on Mother’s Day?

Flowers? Always a favourite, but they are expensive and last only a few days…Chocolates? They are always welcome, but somehow just don’t feel ‘enough’. Wine is also welcomed, but it lasts even less time than the chocolates, let alone the flowers!!

Would you like a gift that is totally unique, handmade for mum, inspired by the very person (or persons) who made her a mum in the first place?

Maybe you are a mum yourself and you’d like to ‘help’ someone choose the right gift for you – share this with them and start hinting!

You’re in the right place!

Every mum is different and she deserves a present as unique as she is. Mums aren’t mass produced, and the gift that she’s given on the 22nd March 2020 shouldn’t be either.

Mother's Day Gift Guide 2020 2
There is something for everyone.  Well, everyone that’s Impressive enough!
Mother's Day Gift Guide 2020 3

1. Gifts From £15

Want to make an impression but not burst the bank?

Book an appointment to come along and get creative! Bring along some little hands and feet and create a gift for Mum, Gran, Aunty…YOURSELF.  No mess and stress of visiting a busy ceramic cafe. I’m here to help, guide, inspire you to create something that’s simply beautiful. I can give as much or as little to help as you wish.

Please book before Friday 6th of March for Clay Impressions, of Friday 14th of March for ceramic mugs/plates/clocks to guarantee your item is ready to collect in time for Mother’s Day.

2. Handmade Jewellery

Handmade jewellery can be made for Impressive Mums.  Distance is not a problem…all jewellery can be made by posting out a kit for you to take the prints for me. If you live nearby you can book an appointment and I can take them for you.

Please book an appointment before 10th March to guarantee your item is ready to collect in time for Mother’s Day.

Online/web orders must be placed prior to this, and all elements returned to me by the 10th March to guarantee your item is ready to be posted/collected in time for Mother’s Day.

3. Golden Fingerprint Jewellery

If Mum prefers a golden charm to silver, this could be perfect!

  • Costs almost the same as silver.
  • Golden Moments are not a precious metal
  • Charms do not need Hallmarked.
  • They are a solid golden metal alloy NOT PLATED and will not wear off
  • All metals will tarnish – this will too – but a cleaning cloth and a gentle wipe will bring it back to its shining glory.
  • I’ll give you a free cleaning cloth!
  • It is a very robust and strong metal – it will not scratch or damage easily.
  • Golden Moments are better suited to more defined fingerprints – so toddlers through to adults, and pets too! Miniprints will suit better for babies.

Vouchers can also be used for jewellery and ceramic orders. Online and at appointments too.

With the click of a button, you can gift the recipients the opportunity to capture a lifecast to create a memorable, tangible, moment in time.

6. Miniaturised Charms of YOUR child

Mother's Day Gift Guide 2020 18

Are you looking for a truly Impressive gift?

These solid Sterling Silver charms are miniaturised from your child’s hand and foot!! How awesome is that?

The price might look high, but if you investigate this style of jewellery you will find that only a handful of people in the UK can offer these, and nobody (that I am aware of) is doing them for as good a price!

These charms are made entirely by myself – I have developed my own technique that is different to the rest of the UK market.

This doesn’t mean they are only limited to my local clients because I am building a network of lifecasters who will be on hand to help create the initial lifecasts. (I need the lifecast as the first stage in creating these).

Find out more about these Impressive ‘Tiny Treasures’…with split payments, they are much more affordable than you may think, and such a talking point!

Got a question?

I’m sure you have lots of questions. Here are a few I’ve been asked recently…(click on the question to see the answer). If you’d like to know anything – just ask!

I live too far away - can I order anything?

Yes, all jewellery can be made by posting out a kit for you to take the initial prints.  You may even have hand/footprints already that I can use…best to get in touch and ask.  Call me on 07837800353 or email [email protected] 

My budget is under £25 can you help?

Yes, I have lots of ceramic options for you to create in this budget.  Take a look…

I am a mum of many...can jewellery combine more than one child?

Yes, I have lots of jewellery designs that can show off your impressive children no matter how many you have!

Do you have any gift ideas for 'mum-to-be'?

Gift Vouchers are a perfect idea! Let the new parents decide what they’d like to create once their little bundle arrives.

I've left it too late - HELP?

It’s never too late!! Have you seen my NEW GIFT EXPERIENCES? They are available 24/7 and fully downloadable gift option!

Or why not order an item and have the print/impression kit ready to take the impressions on Mother’s Day – with the Impressive Mum, then have your piece made. You waited 9 months for a baby, you can wait a fortnight for your jewellery 😉

I'm a mum to an angel, can I have anything made?

If you have ink prints or hand/footprints I can turn these into jewellery for you. The originals will come to no harm.  I also make memorial keepsakes from locks of hair and cremation ashes too.

Drop me an email if you’d like me to help [email protected]  or call for a chat on 07837800353.

My mum has passed away, could I remember her on Mother's Day?

Take a look at my Memorial & Bereavement Memories Page. Also HERE is another blog with suggestions too – and see if you’d like to remember your mum with any of these ideas. Drop me an email if you’d like me to help [email protected]  or call for a chat on 07837800353.

Mother's Day - 22nd March 2020

Mother's Day Gift Guide 2020 19If you’re a mum, a step-mum, a foster mum, an adopted mum…If you’ve been a mum, you’ll be a mum soon, or you had an awesome mum who’s now passed…

If you’re able to go and hug your mum and tell her how amazing she is on the 22nd of March – do it!!

And not just on this one day, because mums never stop being mums…

Be sure to make their day Impressive and filled with Memories.

Happy Mother’s Day from me,

Who am I?

*waves* Hi, I’m Jen. Everything you see online and offline at Impressive Memories is created by moi! All the jewellery, products, lifecasts, website, catalogs, leaflets…all me! (control freak)

I started lifecasting in 2003 when I had my daughter, and began to build my first business ‘Impressive Babies’. I left my music teaching career to run my business full time in 2013 and ‘Impressive Memories’ has grown and flourished, as has my daughter, since.

I am passionate about capturing an emotion or memory and creating it into a tangible work of art that you can touch, hold and feel for a lifetime. I believe in using the very highest standard of raw materials, alongside consistently developing my own skills to an ever-rising level.  A perfectionist in detail (and my harshest critic) with the ethos that any item created at Impressive Memories is honouring your most Impressive Memory.

I am on a mission to make YOUR memories tangibly impressive!


FAQ’s
  1. What are the casts made from? A high density, top quality stone powder.
  2. How long does it take to make the baby hand & foot casts? Baby only needs to be in the casting material for approx 3 mins per casting. It will then take approx 5 weeks to complete your work of art.
  3. Why does it take so long? Due to the fine and highly dense construction it takes a long time for the cast to dry naturally. To speed it up would have a detrimental effect on your cast in the long run…it would be fine for a few years but then it would begin to deteriorate and could even disintegrate.
  4. I’ve seen a cheaper option elsewhere – why should I come to Impressive Memories? It’s important that you choose a lifecaster that you know, like and trust to create your baby life casts. It’s always a good idea to explore all your options. A cheaper product might be created using cheap materials or a cheap moulding compound, maybe it’s been artificially dried and compromised for a quick turnaround, it might not have been finished to the high standard I work to (look for lumps and bumps and a poor finish around fingernails etc.) It’s also worth checking the time a lifecaster has been working and selling their work to the public. Some issues don’t rear their ugly head for 5 years+ Mould, for example, takes a long time to appear and destroy your casting. Chances are that the person who cut corners and sold you a damp cast has moved on to another ‘business venture’ and won’t care or know how to rectify your issue.
  5. Should I buy a kit and do it myself? This depends on the end goal you want to achieve. A kit can be good fun but the result is uncertain and not guaranteed. You won’t have the skills, ability, machinery, techniques or knowledge to create to the standard of an experienced life caster, and if you want to have fun and waste £80 then have a bash. Buying a camera won’t make you a photographer,  owning a screwdriver doesn’t make you a joiner, dancing in your bedroom singing into a hairbrush won’t make you a pop star…(sorry to shatter your dreams). If you want to have fun and possibly end up with a dodgy looking baby casts that looks great inside a dark cupboard – then buy a kit. If you want a high-quality work of art that you’re proud of for decades to come – you’re in the right place.
  6. What if I give this as a gift and they don’t want it? Don’t panic. If the recipient would rather choose a different casting or jewellery or ceramics, that’s no problem at all. They can transfer their vouchers monetary value to any item at Impressive Memories.
  7. What if they wiggle?  No problemo. They are babies – they are meant to wriggle…
  8. What if they’re hungry? No worries. Bring plenty of milk… there is no rushing and baby’s needs always come first. You’re welcome to feed your baby by whatever methods you choose while here, and you are the only people here in the studio – make yourself at home. If babies are a little older and weaned, bring them something they really enjoy that will distract their attention.
  9. Can the gift be altered? If you gift a single aperture frame and the recipient would like to upgrade to a different, larger frame that’s no problem at all.

If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to get in touch. I am more than happy to have a chat and answer anything you’d like to know more about. Give me a call on 07837 800 353, email me [email protected], visit me over on Facebook or Instagram

Lifecasts – When is the best age to create them?

Lifecasts – When is the best age to create them?

When is the best age for a life casting?

 

This is the question I am asked the most and it's a really good question to ask. The problem is the answer is not that simple.

It's too late to capture today, if it's already tomorrow.

"I wish I'd done this when my children were smaller"

"I'd give anything to hold those newborn feet again"

"You forget so quickly how small they once were, don't you?"

"I wish I'd known I could have done that - now it's too late"

But when is the best age to capture a lifecasting? Well, that depends - I'm not being noncommittal. It depends on WHAT you want to cast, and WHY.

Why do you want life casts?

What will you have lifecast?

Why now?

What memory are you capturing?

Why might waiting be better?

What would I regret if I didn't do this?

Why should you NOT wait

There are no age limitations on my life castings.

What I can’t do is pause time, or go back in time...that would be pretty clever...

Being prepared and being organised is the key to successfully holding onto YOUR Impressive Memories.

I noticed on a website that the caster wouldn't cast babies older than 6 months, "due to them being unsuitable" - Seriously? It's most definitely THAT life caster who is unsuitable, it is certainly NOT your baby.

There are NO AGE LIMITATIONS to lifecasting - young or old. 

Another company claims that babies who "don't cooperate" will have to pay extra if more casting material is needed, AND return another day!  - I would never expect my customers to pay extra because their baby had wriggled! Wriggling is NOT a problem - in fact, I encourage it!!

Do not worry about anything like this happening at Impressive Memories! In my 16 years, I've never been unable to cast anyone or anything that's been to me for lifecasting!!

Baby Lifecasting

As a new parent, you'll want to treasure every second of your precious little bundle. They grow so so quickly, don't they? You just want to pause time and enjoy the moment - but it's also great fun watching them grow, and change and become little people. Lifecasting lets you capture that moment in time. Photographs are great but lifecasts let you actually touch and hold those memories.

Why Is Now The Right Time?

There could be many reasons. I would always say there is never a wrong time to capture a moment with a lifecast. It's a great way to remember a special anniversary or milestone, but in reality, we should treasure every day we have. Not just special occasions.

Why might waiting be better?

If proud Grandparents are also keen to have baby lifecasts and keepsakes, it can be a good idea to do them at different ages to yours.  If you have newborn casts taken, they could wait until your baby is 6 months old...then you can compare and see how they've grown.

Why should you NOT wait?

Once the moment has passed it can never come back. Don't let memories fade - keep holding them!

Don't be left with regrets, wishing you'd done it.

Whenever I take a lifecast for you, we are creating a tangible snapshot of that moment in time.

Here are some of the benefits and possible disadvantages of casting different ages. For more [email protected] on baby lifecasting I have another blog here.

Lifecasting is NOT just for Babies!

A common misconception is that only babies can create lifecasts

When it comes to lifecasting adults the emphasis isn't on those cute little baby wrinkles anymore.

Our hands are so unique and instantly recognisable as those they belong to.

What we're doing when we cast adult hands is recognising and honouring those in our lifecast.

We're telling the world that this person is important to us and that we want to capture the connections, love and respect we have for them.

With the level of detail captured you can create a unique family heirloom. Imagine passing your lifecast down through the generations.

As we live in a digital age of no longer printing and storing photographs - How are YOU going to show future generations where they originated? Imagine letting them touch, hold and feel the hands of generations that came before them?

Memorial Lifecasting

Memories are never more precious than when we lose a loved one.

Lifecasting can still be done but it is vital that you contact me as soon as possible.

I cannot guarantee it will always be possible but I can guarantee that I have the skills, experience and industry requirements to do this for you.

I am more than happy to discuss this option with you if it is something you would like to know more about.

But when IS the best time to take lifecasts?

Hmmm There just isn't an answer to this is there?

Hopefully, I've helped you think about what YOU want to capture and why?

  • Newborn Babies
  • Chubby 6 month old hands and feet
  • Birthdays
  • Milestones
  • Introducing a New Sibling
  • Recognising a family connection
  • Wedding Hand Clasp
  • Anniversary
  • Elderly relative whose hand holds a lifetime of memories
  • Loved one who has passed
  • Don't forget PETS too!

I don't think there is such a thing as a 'Best Time'.  Whatever you cast, and whenever I cast it, we are taking a tangible snapshot of that moment.

Who would gift a Handclasp?

The person who gifts a hand casting experience is someone who values the people in their life. Someone that recognises the importance of the connections within our families & friendships. Someone who treasures the moments in our lives and that makes us who we are. They treasure those that are impressive to them and want to capture memories.

Mass-produced 'off-the-shelf' gifts just aren't Impressive enough for you - you'd much rather give a fun experience, with a memorable and life long memento to touch, hold and treasure. You'd like to be remembered for gifting a bespoke present that lasts a lifetime.

Who is the ideal recipient to Gift a Handclasp Experience?

The ideal recipient for a hand cast gift experience could be an engaged couple, newlyweds, parent's celebrating a wedding anniversary (a silver cast for a silver wedding gift, a gold cast for a golden wedding), grandparents, best friends, business partners, brothers & sisters, mum and daughter, father and son...

A hand cast is for people who value those they share in their life. They care more about the people, friends and their family than they do about material possessions. They can appreciate the beauty of a hand cast as it has captured an emotion and made it a tangible memory they are proud to display - showing the world what's important to them.

Why does every home need a hand cast?

A hand cast is more than just a beautiful ornament to display in your home. It is a work of art inspired by you! Seeing your hand cast should evoke memories unique to those who it captures, and spark memories for all those that recognise those who have created it. Our hands are so expressive and instantly recognisable and once your work of art is on display you are showing the world - and your visitors - that you are proud of those you share in your life.

In years to come, it can become a family heirloom to pass down through generations, a snapshot of time, reminding us of our family values, our loved ones and our impressive memories.

Who am I?

Gift Experiences:Hand Casting for two adults 21*waves* Hi, I'm Jen. Everything you see online and offline at Impressive Memories is created by moi! All the jewellery, products, lifecasts, website, catalogs, leaflets...all me! (control freak)

I started lifecasting in 2003 when I had my daughter, and began to build my first business 'Impressive Babies'. I left my music teaching career to run my business full time in 2013 and 'Impressive Memories' has grown and flourished, as has my daughter, since.

I am passionate about capturing an emotion or memory and creating it into a tangible work of art that you can touch, hold and feel for a lifetime. I believe in using the very highest standard of raw materials, alongside consistently developing my own skills to an ever-rising level.  A perfectionist in detail (and my harshest critic) with the ethos that any item created at Impressive Memories is honouring your most Impressive Memory.

I am on a mission to make YOUR memories tangibly impressive!

FAQ's
  1. What is the cast made from? A high density, top quality stone powder.
  2. How long does it take to make the hand cast? You only need to be in the casting material for approx 5 mins. It will take approx 8 weeks to complete your work of art.
  3. Why does it take so long? Due to the fine and highly dense construction it takes a long time for the cast to dry naturally. To speed it up would have a detrimental effect on your cast in the long run...it would be fine for a few years but then it would begin to deteriorate and could even disintegrate.
  4. I've seen a cheaper option elsewhere - why should I come to Impressive Memories? It's important that you choose a lifecaster that you know, like and trust to create your hand cast. It's always a good idea to explore all your options. A cheaper product might be created using cheap materials or a cheap moulding compound, maybe it's been artificially dried and compromised for a quick turnaround, it might not have been finished to the high standard I work to (look for lumps and bumps and a poor finish around fingernails etc.) It's also worth checking the time a lifecaster has been working and selling their work to the public.

If you want to have fun and possibly end up with a dodgy looking cast that looks great inside a dark cupboard - then buy a kit. If you want a high-quality work of art that you're proud of for decades to come - you're in the right place.
  6. What if I give this as a gift and they don't want it? Don't panic. If the recipient would rather choose a different casting or jewellery or ceramics, that's no problem at all. They can transfer their voucher monetary value to any item at Impressive Memories.
  7. Can I wear jewellery? Yes, rings can be worn. Wedding bands are inclusive of a standard casting but to include ornate rings with stone settings there's a small additional cost. Jewellery can make your cast even more unique and recognisable as being YOUR hands. If you've been gifted a casting without jewellery you are welcome to upgrade your cast and include them yourself for just £20 per ring.

If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to get in touch. I am more than happy to have a chat and answer anything you'd like to know more about. Give me a call on 07837 800 353, email me [email protected], visit me over on Facebook or Instagram

Gold Fingerprint Jewellery

Gold Fingerprint Jewellery

Gold Fingerprint Jewellery

Fingerprint jewellery is such a unique way to wear bespoke jewellery. Made just for you, it can capture a moment, milestone or a memory, for you to treasure it for a lifetime.

What is your favourite jewellery to wear? Do you like warm golds or cool whites and silvers? What about rose gold? Do you mix your jewellery up or always keep to the same precious metals?

There are so many choices, aren't there?

You may have noticed there are a lot of people offering silver fingerprint jewellery, but not as many offering gold.

I get asked a lot for gold fingerprint jewellery, especially rose gold, but the issue has always been the price.

The problem is that gold is a very expensive precious metal.

What if there was an alternative solution?

  • Are you considering investing in gold fingerprint jewellery?
  • Do you love the idea of fingerprint jewellery but usually find it’s made in silver, which you don’t wear?
  • Have you looked online and found that gold fingerprint jewellery is possible, but the price tag is way over your budget?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of those questions – keep reading…

Golden Moments by Impressive Memories

medium golden ink print fingerprint charm

This charm is made from an INK FINGERPRINT.

triple teardrop

These stacked charms are created from PUTTY FINGERPRINT IMPRESSIONS.

How have I solved the problem and made gold fingerprint jewellery as affordable as silver?

At Impressive Memories, my aim is to create beautiful, high-quality products. I pride myself on using the best materials and creating work of a very high standard.

At the same time, I also appreciate that the budget is important.

A solid gold hallmarked, fingerprint charm will cost approximately £500 to make. There are many jewelers who can do this for you.

My solution gives you a golden charm with all the beauty of gold but will cost you much less, almost a tenth of the price – Golden Moments charms start at just over £60.

I've made gold fingerprint jewellery affordable: How?

  • Hallmarked gold is a precious metal made in 9ct, 18ct & 21ct depending on the amount of 'pure' gold mixed into an alloy of metals. My Golden Moments range is an alloyed metal but does not contain traditional gold. 
  • My Charms do not need Hallmarked. Traditional gold over 1g in weight is required by law to be assayed and hallmarked by an Assay Office. I am registered with the Edinburgh Assay Office. This allows me to have my work hallmarked if I need to.
  • My Golden Moments are a solid golden metal alloy, not plated, the ‘gold’ will not wear off. Gold plating another metal to give a 'coating' of gold is a temporary solution to wanting a gold finish.
  • All metals will tarnish – this will too – but a cleaning cloth and a gentle wipe will bring it back to its shining glory (I’ll give you a free cleaning cloth). 
  • Golden Moments are very robust and strong – they will not scratch or damage easily.
golden inkprint fingerprint triple charm

These stacked hearts are created from INK FINGERPRINTS

A handmade golden charm with an imprint of a childs hand or foot.

HAND & FOOT prints, PAW prints too, can be worn on your golden jewellery.

What do I need to create Golden Moment Fingerprint Jewellery?

  1. An INK PRINT of the fingerprint, hand, foot or paw print. I have the kit you need to do this cleanly and easily.
  2. A FINGERPRINT IMPRESSION in putty. I have the kit you need to do this cleanly and easily.

3 Reasons why Gold is different to Silver

  1. can make you a charm in genuine gold using a similar technique to silver, but it would cost more than £500 for me to make.
  2. Alternatively, fingerprint charms can be made in gold using a much older technique. The process of ‘lost wax’ is thousands of years old…a beautifully skilled method. Again, the cost for a gold charm is usually upwards of £500. If you have that budget then there are many excellent jewellers who can make you a gold, fingerprint charm.
  3. Hallmarking is another cost implication. Any gold jewellery over 1g in weight must legally be hallmarked (the legal weight for silver is higher at 7.78g).  The Edinburgh Assay website can answer all those questions.

Are Golden Moments right for me?

Perfect for you if –

  • You’d rather spend £60 than £500
  • You wear gold jewelry not silver
  • You have a fingerprint in mind that you’d like to be wearing
  • I already have your fingerprints from a previous order
  • You need strong, hardwearing jewellery that goes where you go – in the shower, swimming, chewed by your todder…yup, they ALL do it!
  • You deserve a touch of luxury in your life, without bustin’ the bank balance

NOT Perfect for you if –

  • You’d rather spend £500 on a hallmarked solid gold charm.
