You hear your child say "Mom wear that" and it is their precious little cardboard heart they made in class. The beads are glued on with a glue stick. And you want to frame it instead of wearing it!
When you want to convert that creation by your six year old into something to wear, the papier-mâché piece just won't work either. But how many times have you seen them write their name for Dad with a little heart or flower telling them how much they are loved. How many times have you seen them write "I Love Mom" on your Day Timer or scribbled a drawing of themselves to remind you they are thinking of you.
At Imprint On My Heart, we take those little sentiments and create stunning pieces of jewelry that you will cherish for a lifetime. These are the memorable pieces that you will be able to wear and cherish for years.
From ideas of your what you would like to wear, we take the handwriting and drawings and convert that into a jewelry design. Each piece is custom made, so if you want to add a birthstone or diamond in a specific spot, we can add that to your design.
Above is a set of cuff links for a dad who has the handwritten names of his children along with their drawings and birthstones. What a gift for Father's Day or Christmas!
Below is a stunning gift for Mom with a circle diamond studded medallion with a handwritten love note from the daughter. These are the pieces you will want to wear every day and never take off.
Imprint On My Heart is a division of Richards and West. We are a full-service jewelry manufacturer, retail site, online retailer and service center. We manufacture everything from wedding rings to custom iPhone cases.

About Imprint On My Heart and Memory In My Heart
Imprint On My Heart is a custom jewelry design and manufacturing company, formerly located in Carmel, California. In 2005, the company was started as an entrepreneurial venture of Kathryn Albers, creating the luxury personalized fingerprint jewelry market. Imprint On My Heart creates heirloom quality pieces in sterling, 14k and 18k gold and platinum. Using the thumbprints, baby footprints and pet paw prints, unique and original designs were created into pendants, lockets, charms, earrings, rings, cuff links, dog tags and more. The business expanded into the engagement and wedding ring market creating fingerprint rings and bands studded with diamonds.
With the death of her grandfather, Kathryn Albers sought to preserve his unique handwriting in a tangible form. With requests from families and funeral homes, Memory In My Heart was created to provide lasting memories to those who lost their loved ones by creating fingerprint cremation ash pendants and memorial lockets. Special lines were designed for memorializing the loss of a child and the loss of the family pet. Memory In My Heart became the foremost design company for luxury memorials.
