You return the moulds & your finished jewellery is despatched back to you via a secure service (exact method depends on the delivery address) 28 days after we receive the moulds or 14 days if you have paid for express turnaround.
PLEASE NOTE THAT PAYING FOR NEXT DAY DELIVERY MEANS THE MOULD KITS WILL BE SENT OUT ON A NEXT DAY SERVICE
COMMON QUESTIONS REGARDING FINGERPRINT & BABY PRINT JEWELLERY
Why should I not order fingerprint jewellery for a child under 1 year old?
As the detail has not fully developed & you will not see any lines in the print, just a small & uneven dimple in the silver. Sending in poor moulds or moulds from children who are under 1 year old is an acceptance that you are happy to go ahead with us creating your jewellery.
What if I can't make good fingerprint moulds?
We send enough putty to create 2 moulds for each fingerprint & you should take care to read the instructions for getting a good print very carefully before you begin. If you are unable to get even 1 print you can purchase more putty through the online shop - http://www.creativecasting.co.uk/silver-fingerprint-jewellery/FPUTTYONLY.html
My inkless prints have smudges &/or fingers/toes missing!
We can tidy up & realign prints without any problem. If you have a favourite print draw an arrow alongside it so we can use that particular print for you. If you get a good print but miss a toe/fingertip, do a separate print of the missing bit on the sheet & we can add it to the main print when we do the editing.
Can you use paint prints or other prints I already have?
We can use pretty much any prints but the detail in the finished piece will only be as good as the original prints. If you are unsure, drop us an email & attach the prints you want to use to the message & we'll come back to you.
What is the difference between fine silver & sterling silver?
Sterling silver contains 92.5% silver, the rest being other metals added for strength. Fine silver is 99.9% silver & so much softer & will show 'wear & tear' marks on the surface much quicker than sterling silver would. All our fine silver pieces are stamped '999' - the mark for 99.9% fine silver. All our findings are sterling silver & are marked '925' by the manufacturer as confirmation of this.
What words can I have engraved?
All pieces can be personalised with the addition of words of your choice. Letters are hand-engraved the number of characters that can be added depends on the size of the item as well as the size of the prints - details are included on each product description & all engraving information is collected during checkout. There is not always room for writing on the front of a charm & if we feel we cannot fit the characters you have asked for on the front of a piece they will be hand engraved on the back.
My jewellery is marking as I use it!
Your jewellery is not mass produced & has a bespoke finish to it which is part of the beauty of the fingerprint & Baby Print jewellery range. This means each one is unique from the individually engraved letters, careful shaping & the finishing. All the charms & pendants are softer than sterling silver & do not have the very high, smooth shine that commercial sterling has. This means they will show signs of wear & tear much more quickly than sterling silver. All silver will tarnish over time & should be kept away from detergents. Clean with a silver polishing cloth.
Is the jewellery sent to me securely & can I have it sent to someone else?
Your jewellery is sent by secure post - either a Royal Mail 'signed for' service or courier. We can also despatch the finished jewellery direct to a gift recipient with a gift message included for no extra charge. Simply add the details at checkout.
What if I don't like the finished piece of jewellery?
As your jewellery is a completely bespoke item, there is no recourse for a refund as the item cannot be resold. By placing an order & sending in prints you are accepting that we will create the best piece we can from the prints & engraving you have provided. If we have made an error on the item, we will of course remake the piece at no charge.
