Engraving Details

On all our engravable products, we offer one complimentary engraving. (additional engravings on one particular item is chargeable at $10)
There are two types of engraving:


1. Standard (hand-stamped) - Hammer & stamp method (Our specialty!)

Font options: This type of engraving is only available in one font.
Limitations: For ring engraving, this method can only be done on the outside of the ring. The finish is organic and oftentimes imperfect.
Time needed: 1.5 weeks 
to collection/delivery
Cost: Free for one engraving (subsequent sides +$10)
Description: Hand-stamping refers to a classic engraving method. Done by hand with hammer and letter stamps, each letter is individually impressed onto the jewellery. The outcome is organic, and imperfect and more deeply impressed into the metal as compared to laser engraving. Hand-stamping can only be done on the outside of rings. Font is fixed, san serif caps.

Alphabets A-Z (CAPS)
Numbers 0-9
