Covid-19 Update 27.03.20:
I am still open for business but these are the precautions I am taking:
Fingerprint Charms are no longer available to order as the prints would need to be returned to me. They will be available once ‘business as usual’ resumes.
Handprint/Footprint/Paw Print Charms ARE available to order. You no longer need to send the prints back to me, instead take a photo and send them to me via FB messenger or a DM on Instagram. Alternatively email me a copy by sending them to: email@example.com
Making the charms from Silver means I am constantly washing my hands so rest assured all the necessary precautions are taken to ensure my hands are clean when making/handling your charms.
Your safety is the upmost importance to me so if you have any further questions regarding the above, please contact me, Loretta at firstname.lastname@example.org
The pictures on the website, our social media pages and marketing material are for illustration purposes only. Each item is tailor made to your requirements and is crafted by hand and therefore will always be unique to every customer.
Fine (Pure) Silver
All jewellery keepsake items are made from Fine Silver which is 99.9% pure silver. This type of silver is delicate and prone to scratching and we recommend you remove your jewellery when bathing, showering and doing manual work such as housework.
All individual pieces are handmade; as a result shapes and sizes can vary.
All of our pieces are put through a careful and delicate finishing and polishing process, to achieve a beautiful finish, but one that is never going to be flawless.
Very faint scratches will be visible if looked at closely. This in no way takes away from the beauty of our charms/gifts, and you can expect a very high standard of finish.
Fingerprint/Hand and Footprint Jewellery
Fingerprints typically develop after 6 months of age and babies younger than this may not have defined prints.
For younger babies we would recommend you choose a handprint or footprint charm or wait until they are a little older.
Whether you decide on a fingerprint, hand or footprint jewellery, it will be unique to your child so we are unable to change or enhance the definition.
From the date we receive your prints (fingerprints/handprints/footprints) back, please allow 14-21 days for your jewellery to be made. If you need your item sooner, please send an email with the details. Please note this may incur an extra charge.
Engraved Jewellery and Gifts
We will start making your item from the date we receive your completed prints (handprints/footprints) it will normally take 14 – 21 days for your item to be made.
This may take longer if your order includes items from our Fine (Pure) Silver Range and there maybe a delay in completing your order during busier periods such as Mother’s Day and Christmas.
We will keep you informed on the progress of your order and will notify you when your order is complete and has been posted out to you.
Should you need your item sooner, please get in touch before placing an order with us.
Once an order has been placed, a print kit will be sent to you with clear instructions on how to take your prints and how to return them to us. If you are still unsure of how to take the prints, please contact us and we will be happy to assist you.
The fingerprint, handprint or footprint detail on the charms we create can only be as good as the print you have taken. We cannot improve the detail of the print. If you are not happy with the prints you have taken, you can order another print Fingerprint kit for £5.00 or a Handprint/Footprint Kit for £10. When you return the prints to us, we will take it that you are happy with the prints and we will proceed with making your item(s).
Personalisation and writing
All names will be scribed with the first letter being upper case and subsequent letters lower case, unless stated otherwise on the order form.
Dates will be written as: DD.MM.YY (e.g. 29.12.20) or DD.M.YY e.g. (29.1.20) unless stated otherwise on the order form.

Small charms can fit 1 print e.g. 1 handprint and a name (maximum 5 letters) on the front.
For Small charms, names that are longer than 5 letters will be personalised on the back of the charm. (This will usually incur an extra cost of £5)
Due to the nature of fine silver, there will be some shrinkage (typically 8-9%) during the firing stage.
Payment is via Paypal. You can pay by using your debit, credit or bank account (You do not need a Paypal account to pay this way.)
Paying in installments via Paypal
You have the option to pay in 4 equal installments via Paypal on any order over £50. You can choose the frequency of the payments (e.g. weekly or monthly.)

Any amount refunded will be minus 20% handling fee and minus any Paypal fees incurred to True Love Keepsakes.
All charms are attached using a soldered jump ring (or a link lock at the request of the customer.) These are a secure way of attaching your charm to a bracelet or chain. We advise you to check your charm regularly to ensure attachments are intact as any knocks to the attachments may weaken it.
A photo will be taken of your charm, including attachment as proof it was attached to your bracelet/charm securely should any dispute arise.
