I have wanted to get hand or footprint charms made of my twins hand or footprints ever since they were born. I was therefore delighted to come across The English Charm Co.
The lady I dealt with was so helpful, taking me through my options. Once I had decided on what I wanted and my order placed I was sent an impression kit containing inkless wipes and special paper which captures the prints. I then emailed them across to the company. I took 2 sets of prints while my wriggly boys were sleeping. I was advised that their handprints would work better as charms and so I opted for their handprints with their name on the front of a heart shaped silver charm and their date of birth on the back.
It seemed no time at all (around a week or so) before the lovely lady was back in touch telling me that my order was ready to send out. I was so excited that I was delighted to receive pictures of the charms taken before they were posted.
The following day, I excitedly opened the parcel. It was well packaged in a beautiful gift box, which had a lovely royal blue ribbon wrapped around it. The ribbon had the company name printed on it. Inside the lid of the box was a stuck on piece of paper which had a picture of both of my boy’s prints on it. The box also contained care instructions and a blue cloth.
As for the charms, they are stunning and clearly top quality. They are made from 99.9% pure silver and measure approx. 30mm each. I don’t have anything to put them on yet, but I am hoping that Santa will bring me a necklace or charm bracelet to put them on.
I am delighted with not just the product but the whole experience and these made a superb keepsake of my children.
Prices for charms start from £35 depending on style, shape, decoration etc. The charms I chose cost £55 each.
