Hold upon Heart is a small family business, located in gorgeous Shropshire in the U.K, offering a stunning collection of personalised jewellery & accessories, made with your unique fingerprints, handprints & footprints, pawprints & doodles and more. A perfect way to celebrate parenthood, to celebrate a wedding, or in memory of a loved one
Our jewellery and accessories are hand made in Shropshire by designer-makers, Melanie & Jeff, also mum and dad to three small boys. Working with solid gold, sterling silver, real leather & more, we transform your cherished memories into wonderful bespoke gifts, perfect for both him & for her. With diverse and unique collections, which include rings, charms, necklaces, bracelets, cufflinks and keyrings, as well as personalised paper prints, there truly is something beautiful for everyone.
Since we began making Fingerprint Jewellery in 2012, we have worked tirelessly to create a collection of the finest fingerprint jewellery. Our focus is very much on achieving a truly high quality product, whether made from 18ct gold or stainless steel. After all, each piece of personalised jewellery we create is incredibly meaningful, whether featuring prints from a new baby, or memorial prints from a loved one, and we realise that such precious jewellery needs to be made to last.
Our premium quality Fingerprint Impression Collection is made using the ancient art of lost-wax casting. Your own unique fingerprints are captured in jewellers wax, which picks up the very finest of detail from prints. Once perfect, the wax model featuring your unique print is sent to our expert caster in London's prestigious jewellery quarter. To transform the wax into precious metal, a master mould is created, and the wax is 'burnt out' leaving a void into which molten precious metal can be poured. Once the metal has cooled the mould is opened revealing a perfect replica of your unique print in solid precious metal. Each casting is returned to us to finish by hand. Each piece can be further personalised with an engraved message on the reverse. All our Fingerprint Impression jewellery is struck with a British hallmark and can be made in your choice of 9ct and 18ct gold, rose gold or white gold, as well as sterling silver.
Our Inked Fingerprint Collection, Handprint and Footprint Collection, Pawprint Collection and Personalised Jewellery, is made in-house using traditional jewellers techniques, and then deep engraved. We do not use imported mass-produced blanks, which is why we are able to offer our designs in a wide range of materials. Again, we arrange for all of our precious metal jewellery to be struck with a British hallmark, so you can be assured that you are receiving a piece of quality.
We also offer rather unique leather goods, that are deep embossed (or more correctly, debossed) with your fingerprints, hand and footprints, pawprints, doodles and more. Again, each piece is hand made in our Shropshire studio, worked from real leather, using traditional leather working techniques.
Finally, we have a small collection of personalised paper prints, made using your little one's hand and footprints, silhouettes and doodles. From watercolour rainbow effects, to shimmering gold foil, these unique paper prints make a beautiful addition to any nursery wall.
