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

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 £70.

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 to get you started). 
  • Golden Moments are very robust and strong – they will not scratch or damage easily.

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.

First, there was pure silver, then there was sterling silver. I was asked for gold and along came Golden Moments…so what was I asked for next?

“Can you make Rose Gold fingerprint jewellery?”

Yes! I can now make you Rosy Golden Moments!

Fingerprint and miniprint jewellery in a pretty rosy golden finish.

What do you think? Are you a fan of rose gold? I love it. From iPhones, trainers, makeup, jewellery and not forgetting wine…I am a bit of a fan of rose gold…so I was pretty excited to start trying to make rose gold fingerprint and miniprint jewellery.

Impressive Customer Story…

December 2016, a customer who has been to me many times, rang me. We’ve captured her three children’s little hands and feet in jewellery and ceramics over the years, but this time the call wasn’t about them.

She was facing losing a very precious friend and fellow young mum. We chatted through a few different options and made a plan.

December is a busy month for all of us, and workwise for me, I am usually exhausted but when she called again to say time was limited and she was flying down to share New Year with her friend, we knew it was time to take the fingerprints.

It was the eve of Hogmanay. We arranged to collect a fingerprint kit that she would take on her flight to spend time with a brave, courageous and much-loved friend. I talked her through all she needed to do, and the best way to do it. And off she went…

In February it had been on my mind that I hadn’t asked how the print taking had gone – I dropped her a quick message. She was back down south for what would be a final visit.

This courageous mum’s battle ended on the 17th of February. Having defeated cancer once, her second chance at life – that everyone had hoped for – was not to be. A young mum with everything to live for had had it cruelly taken away.

Just two hours after her passing, I got a message to tell me. And yes, my eyes filled with tears reading her message. I hadn’t met this brave lady, but I’d been allowed to be part of capturing a memory for two very impressive friends. I also don’t think there is a mum amongst us that wouldn’t ache, imagining the horror of coming to terms with the inevitable fate she was dealt.

At Impressive Memories, I deal with lots of emotional situations. Celebrations and happy events, but also some very harrowing ones too. There is something very touching when a person feels able to share difficult times with you too.

So here we are now in April and I’d like to share the beautiful memories we’ve made.

Lisa liked the way my logo had two interlocked fingerprints and asked for their charm to be made this way too. Best friends, their prints side by side – a pinky promise x

Hayley wore her children’s charms on her necklace, (I made both her son’s charms) but she decided on a birthday treat and a new Pandora style of bracelet. Alongside her new charm, it made a beautiful new piece of jewellery.

As I was making this for Hayley I was also experimenting with my new Rosy Gold and decided to try and make an extra gift. I had no idea if it would be successful, but if it was, I would then need to ask Hayley if she wouldn’t mind being ‘An Impressive Tester’!! This involves being gifted a new trial piece to wear and see if it stands up to the rigours of life – I won’t sell anything unless I know it will bring happiness – not heartache.

Each side of this heart bead has a fingerprint of each of these best friends. Beads have a central core through them to allow them to spin around the bracelet. The hint of pink amongst the silver bracelet looked so pretty.

When Hayley came to collect her order she was happy to test run her new, surprise addition too. Thank you, Hayley!!

I’ll let you know when Rosy Golden Moments will be available to buy. In the meantime, if you’d like to start planning YOUR Impressive Memories jewellery you might find this eBook helpful.
