IMPORTANT TO KNOW
All gold and silver keepsake jewellery is handmade and personalised for each individual client. We provide you with approximate product colours, dimensions and weights. However, variations in size and the surface appearance of silver and gold may occur, and should be expected.
We provide images and figures as guidance only.
Photographs of fingerprint, handprint, footprint and pawprint jewellery may not be displayed at their actual size and different computer monitors may alter the perceived sizes of products and colours of the precious metals.
Fingerprint necklaces and charms are made to accommodate fingerprints of different shapes and sizes.
The fingerprints taken may also vary in quality and clarity. This can simply be due to age, health, or hereditory factors.
Names, words and messages are sized according to different fonts and lengths.
Gemstones, diamonds, semi-precious stones and pearls may also vary in colour, size and shape.
These things will all alter the look of your completed fingerprint necklace, fingerprint charm, ring or other personalised keepsake.
If we do not feel that the fingerprints submitted are suitable, we will inform you immediately.
This all means that the gold and silver jewellery you purchase will inevitably vary slightly from the photographed images seen on our website, www.sophia-alexander.com
