Spotlight On: Engraving

Engraving services are popular within the jewellery market, and have been for generations. Engraving is an ancient art form. It was practiced thousands of years ago when our ancestors carved images into cave walls and hundreds of thousands of years ago when shells were finely chiselled in Indonesia.

Today, metal objects are some of the more popular for engraving, and the most popular are pieces of jewellery.

Why Engrave Jewellery?

For some, jewellery can be the perfect gift, whether it be from a loved one or a friend, it is always a thoughtful, elegant, and long-lasting gift that one can cherish and enjoy for a lifetime. Engraving a piece of jewellery creates a significantly more personal touch.

Engraving jewellery is a way to make a gift into a message, and a statement that can last for generations within families. This makes the jewellery unique, and although others can own the same item, it can never be mistaken for a similar piece. The engraving means those who see it, know it was given to a certain person.

Engraving jewellery with a certain date of a very special day, or the initials of a loved one show a declaration of love for that individual. You can open your mind and let your imagination run wild with the huge range of engraving options which are available to you.

Engraving is a hugely personal and sentimental idea which can fill the intended individual with happiness. Read our previous blog on why you should engrave your jewellery.
