Fingerprint Jewelry Charms

Saturday, May 14th, 2011

Fingerprint Charms are custom made one at a time by hand in the USA. Usually the thumb provides the best fingerprint. a good fingerprint has distinctive lines and definition. Once the fingerprint is received by our fingerprint jewelry designers, a digital version is created. The artist will then focus on the most interesting portion of the print and crop that area of the fingerprint and digitally clean the fingerprints edges for a clean crisp edge. Then the digital fingerprint is transformed by a computer assisted manufacturing device that lets the jeweler create a wax mold of the image. Once the mold is made the jewelery designer uses the old age process of the lost wax casting method to create a personal fingerprint charm. The lost wax jewelry charm process is as follows: The wax mold, called a pattern, is first weighed so the amount of metal required to fill the mold (gold, silver, etc.) can be determined. Then the mold is attached to a base, and a flask is slipped over the base. Once the mold is in the flask, a kind of plaster that looks like pan cake batter called investment, is mixed up, put in a vacuum to get all the air bubbles out of it, and then poured into the flask. It is then left to dry and harden. This takes a minimum of two hours.

Once the investment is dried, the base and flask are removed. Now the piece is put into an oven to burn out the wax. Next a centrifuge is used to force the melted metal into the investment mold. Finally, the piece is cleaned up by filing and polishing the one of a kind fingerprint jewelry.

Jewelry is one of the most sought after gift items for friends, family, and loved ones. There is something eternal to good, genuine, jewelry that makes it a precious gift.

Most online jewelry stores do not only provide a complete menu of their jewelry merchandise. Some of these shops also offer their target buyers a chance to create and design their jewelry pieces. This is done by providing choices in charms and pendants. The chain is a bracelet that holds the charms. Pandora jewelry pieces can be sterling silver, oxidized silver or gold that can be in combination, or other precious stones and murano glass. It is said that each piece of charm that is being added to the whole bracelet or necklace piece, represents a momentous and special moment in one’s life.

There is something unique in Pandora jewelry charms. Its beads project a seamless effect when crafted into a bracelet or necklace. This is because the clasp on Pandora bracelets appears simply as a bead when closed. There is a patented system of “threads” in the bracelet of beads. It creates a natural, evenly-spaced effect on the whole piece of jewelry. To secure the bracelet, the connection ends with a lobster clip or with a Pandora bead clip.
