A short while ago I was given the opportunity to review a piece of jewellery from Perfect Charm. I have to admit that I have admired the handprint/footprint pendants for a while, as I have always thought they were beautiful. So I jumped at the chance to create my own, I decided to go with a handprint heart necklace pendant.
The large heart pendant is cast with a child's handprint. The pendant looks great worn on a short chain. I absolutely love the way it hangs. You can choose your chain size, and also how you would like the pendant to hang, with the hole in the middle, or the hole to the side. The pendant can be made from pure silver, 9ct yellow gold, 9ct white gold, or 9ct rose gold.
To create the necklace, Georgina sent us a pack which includes an inkless wipe and a sheet of card on which you put your child's hand or foot print. I was a little concerned that it would get messy fast, or that Emily wouldn't keep her hand still enough to take a print. I shouldn't have been worried though, it was so easy. All you have to do is wipe their hand/foot with the inkless wipe and then press it down onto the card. You still need to wash their hands afterwards, but they cannot get ink everywhere.
I was so impressed with the communication between myself and Georgina. She genuinely cares about the jewellery she is making, and that really shines through. I emailed her shorty after sending back the prints, as I was a little concerned that the print wouldn't be good enough as it was a little smudged. To my surprise she had managed to Photoshop the smudge away leaving a perfect hand print.
The necklace arrived back fairly quickly, and can we just take a moment to admire just how beautiful it is. I had tears in my eyes the moment I opened it. Emily's handprint was very clear, and looked so cute. The necklace quality is excellent and it came in a lovely little white presentation box wrapped in tissue paper. I also had Emily's name engraved next to the print, and her date of birth on the back. These were both very clear too.
As well as the personalized jewellery, Perfect Charm have a whole range of other jewellery. Such as necklaces, bracelets, cufflinks, and charms. Overall I'm extremely impressed with both the service and quality of Perfect Charms. They would honestly make a perfect gift for any special occasion and I have already recommended them to friends.
So, what do you think?
