How Fingerprint Jewelry Works
At Dimples, we work from images of fingerprints in order to make beautiful jewelry that looks and feels as though your loved one touched it. We don’t care what method is used to create the fingerprints as long as you are able to provide us with clear, in-focus images of fingerprints where individual fingerprint lines are visible. You don’t need to have the fingerprints made and images on hand when you place your order. Simply email them to us any time after you order. Keep in mind, the quality of the fingerprint on the jewelry depends on the quality of the fingerprint image you send us. However, if you don’t have a good quality fingerprint and you can no longer create one, we can enhance and edit the fingerprint you do have, if necessary, to ensure that it will create beautiful jewelry. There is an added fee for this service if it’s needed.
What doesn’t work is using a flatbed scanner/computer scanner to scan fingerprints. For some reason computer scanners compress the image file and the resolution of the fingerprints is very poor. The fingerprints end up looking like smudges with no visible fingerprint lines. Additionally, ink fingerprints made using red ink, or any color other than black or
dark blue, do not work well.
