I have always wanted a piece of fingerprint jewellery however have never managed to get my bottom in gear and actually do anything about it. When the lovelies from NotOnTheHighStreet got in touch and asked if I would like to review something from the fabulous Button and Bean I didn’t hesitate for a moment before accepting gratefully.
Button and Bean offer a range of personalised fingerprint jewellery for him and her, all of which make fabulous gifts and keepsakes. From pendants to cufflinks there is something here for everyone. It took me a while to narrow down which item I would like best to be honest however in the end this gorgeous Personalised Fingerprint Heart Necklace caught my eye.
When the kit arrived I immediately handed it over to my husband who like many men didn’t read the instructions. The instructions are very clear; once you mix the two putty-like substances together you need to get your child’s fingerprint straight away as the putty starts to harden very quickly. As he hadn’t read this (I hadn’t either in all fairness) we found ourselves with a wasted kit. I was aghast to say the least! Fortunately replacement kits are available for a small charge and are quickly sent out.
This time we were organised and ready, mix, stick finger in and go. A very simple two minute task if you read the instructions first. Off my boy’s fingerprints went…..
Although the estimated time on the website for orders is between 10 and 24 days my beautiful new necklace arrived pretty quickly (I’m guessing for key times such as Father’s Day or Christmas it would take an extra day or so within this range as they are understandably popular for gifts). I have worn the necklace every day since.
I’m not a big jewellery person to be absolutely honest, wearing my wedding ring and the occasional pair of earrings however I’ve not wanted to take this off. It looks great regardless of what I wear and being solid silver is going to last if I take care of it. Once I’ve eventually stopped wearing it (I can’t see me wearing it when the boys hit 18yrs old for example) I will have a beautiful keepsake which is personal to us with their unique fingerprints displayed in such a pretty way.
Would I recommend Button and Bean? Absolutely! From the first kit being sent to receiving my necklace I have been very pleased with the service and the obvious quality of the work. Would I buy another piece as a gift, yes I would. Roy may well find himself with something lovely for his birthday or Christmas.
I have received numerous comments on my personalised fingerprint necklace from people asking where I got it from and how easy it was to use the kit and I’ve told everyone the same.
“If you read the instructions it is easy to do and very worth it. I adore it!”.
I’ve worn the necklace for over a week and it looks as good as new and the chain is also of a high quality.
I was lucky enough to receive this Button and Bean piece of personalised jewellery at no cost in exchange for an honest and open review. I can honestly and openly say that I am over the moon with my new favourite piece of jewellery and based on my 5* experiences of Button and Bean would recommend them without hesitation.
When Not On The High Street (NOTHS) got in touch and asked if I would like to review something up to the value of £50 from across their site, I nearly passed out with excitement. I adore the items they stock and think that being able to buy from independents in this way is a great way to shop.
I decided to buy some art work, then I thought I’d get something as a treat just for me, then I found the Christmas stuff, and then the fashion ranges…. needless to say that I was browsing all evening with a wishlist as long as your arm saved in my basket at the end of it. What I chose in the end was a gift for my husband, Roy.
Unlike myself, Roy is hugely creative, he writes, sings, plays guitar, writes songs and is a fabulous artist. As the review request came through a couple of days before his birthday I thought I’d see if I could find something as an extra treat and was thrilled when I found this:
The images here don’t actually do the item justice so have a look at the product page for more info.
The Indra A4 Embossed And Stoned Leather Journal which would normally retail at £34.95 is a perfect gift for someone like Roy. The quality is undeniable, it looks fabulous, it feels great and is useful, or it will be, once he decides what he wants to use if for (I think he is still at the “it is too lovely to spoil by using” stage).
This item ticks all of the boxes for me too as it is an eco-friendly and fair trade product. The paper for example is made via a charity in India that support the provision of education for women in the area. Even the Khadda paper is recycled as it is handmade from leftover cloth from the garment industry.
The journal arrived on the morning of Roy’s birthday and he was thrilled, and I mean THRILLED! He has even taken it to work to show a couple of mates (who have all cooed over it!). I would call that a win, and I will definitely be buying gifts in the future from NotOnTheHighStreet, especially now I’ve seen for myself an example of what they sell.
