Is it important that your jewelry means something? Designer Jackie Kaufman creates pieces with the imprint of two fingerprints on a heart. Once you place your order, she will send you a simple mold making kit to get your fingerprints. Then she casts them in sterling silver and engraves your name on the back. Unique and thoughtful, these necklaces would make great great gifts for Valentine’s Day, anniversaries, and other occasions. The necklace costs $99.99 (including the molding). For more information or to order, click here for Kaufman’s Etsy shop.
