Fingerprints are our individual identity markers. They’re the physical attributes we take for granted, too. But, they have deeper meaning, especially when it comes to love.
We usually hold hands with the person we love. It creates an intimate bond. It encourages intimacy and romance. When we hold hands, we leave our fingerprints behind.
Fingerprints are completely unique and they’re something that will not change over time. That’s why more couples are choosing to immortalise their prints on an item of jewellery, especially on wedding bands and engagement rings. After all, what could be more romantic than connecting your partner’s fingerprint to your heart? Symbolically, of course. And, now you can with fingerprint rings.
What Are These Rings?
A fingerprint ring can be custom-made for the love of your life. You can place your print either on the outside or inside of a ring, depending on what you prefer. When you place the print on the outside of the ring, it becomes a visible part of the custom design. When you place your print on the inside of the band, you can create a traditional-looking ring with a very special hidden detail on the inside.
How Are the Rings Made?
Believe it or not, the process is really simple. All you have to do is dab your finger on an ink pad and then onto some paper. You can then take a clear photo of the print to give to the jeweller. The jeweller uses a laser to inscribe your fingerprint onto the ring. It’s an extremely accurate process.
While many people prefer to feature just their partner’s fingerprint on a ring, others like to combine their fingerprints. This can be done by overlapping the two prints just a little and leaving the rest of the fingerprint distinct – a stunning visual representation of your love.
Putting both of your prints on a ring means you can keep one another with you wherever you go, along with a reminder of your commitment to each other.
There Are Other Options, Too
If you would prefer to have a fingerprint on another item of jewellery other than a ring, you could have a custom pendant or even a pair of earrings designed. The back of a flat charm or pendant is perfect for a fingerprint.
Something for Everyone
Fingerprint engravings aren’t just to symbolise romantic relationships, though. Creating a unique item of jewellery that has your child’s fingerprint engraved on it can be a beautiful way to show your love. Most parents make imprints of their baby’s hands and feet on paper or clay, but an item of jewellery is a lot more portable and durable. Jewellery with your child’s fingerprints can be a stunning way to carry a reminder of your little one with you.
When it comes to personalising jewellery, the sky is truly the limit. You could also engrave a personal message on the fingerprint jewellery – something special for your partner.
