Why it’s Worth Getting Your Jewellery Engraved

Lots of people ask the question of whether they should get their jewellery engraved, and the short answer is absolutely yes. Jewellery engraving is a specialised craft that will add a personal touch and sentimental value to your piece of jewellery. It’ll make your jewellery even more special and meaningful. 

Whether you’re considering engraving your rings or necklaces, there are a number of different ways you can engrave your items of jewellery. You might engrave with a date or initials, or immortalise a family crest - there are so many options available. 

Below, we’ve taken a look at the various types of jewellery engraving services, and the top reasons why you should definitely consider personalising your jewellery with a professional engraving - so keep reading on to find out more.

The Different Jewellery Engraving Services

Jewellery engraving takes many different forms, including monogram and characters, surface engraving and family crests, and bespoke engravings. We’re going to take a quick look at each of these types of services now. 

One of the most popular engraving services is undoubtedly monogram and characters. This involves personalising the inside of a ring with a special date or initials. For example, it might be a wedding or anniversary date, or the initials of a loved one. This type of engraving adds sentimentality, and looks exquisite on everything from signet rings to necklaces and bracelets.

Surface engraving and family crests are ideal for those who have a family crest they’d like to celebrate and remember through generations. This type of engraving will preserve your family crest on a piece of jewellery, and it can be done via deep surface engraving. This goes deep into the metal’s surface. Alternatively, seal engraving sees the crest engraved in 3D. 

If you’re looking for something bespoke and you’ve got an idea of an engraving you’d like, then bespoke engraving is the service for you. This involves a designer bringing your unique design to life, whether this is a business logo or personal image. There’s lots of freedom to engrave in any way you wish. 

Why Get Your Jewellery Engraved?

Getting your jewellery engraved is a fantastic idea for so many reasons. First of all, an engraving will add a personal touch to your jewellery. Engraving jewellery with a date or initials can make it feel more special and make it stand out from other items of jewellery. It can be a way to express yourself, your values or your love for someone special. 

Secondly, another reason to consider engraving is that it can make your jewellery more secure. Engraving a piece of jewellery can help to identify it if it is lost or stolen. It also makes it more difficult for someone to steal or replace a piece of jewellery with a convincing fake. This can give you more peace of mind if you are travelling or if the jewellery is an expensive, valuable item.

Furthermore, getting your item of jewellery engraved is a wonderful way to commemorate a special occasion or event. Whether it is a birthday, an anniversary or a special moment, having a piece of jewellery engraved with the date or a special message can be a great way to remember and cherish the moment.

All in all, jewellery engraving is a great idea; it’ll transform your jewellery into a unique, meaningful and unforgettable gift. It’ll provide a reminder of special occasions such as an anniversary, birthday, engagement or wedding, that can be carried with you everywhere you go.
