Engraving Tips

If you're thinking about customizing your jewelry with custom engraving, there's a lot to think about. What is the engraving for? What do you want to have engraved? What style of font do you choose?. Should you engrave text or a date? We'll outline some of the easiest ways to exactly figure all of the answers to these questions out so you have the perfect custom piece.

What is the engraving for?

First, think about the purpose and ask yourself, "Why do I want the engraving?" Are you celebrating an event or date? Are you adding your own twist for a personalized, one of a kind piece? Are you sending a message of love to a friend or family member? The answers to these will help guide you along the way.

What do you want to engrave?

Think about what you want engraved. Almost anything with a solid surface can be engraved including the interior of a ring, the inside of a locket, dog tags, I.D. bracelets the back of a watch and more. Sometimes the answer is simple and answered when you decide what the engraving is for.

What do you want engraved on the piece of jewelry you've chosen?

Since we've figured out what you're going to engrave, we'll have a better idea of what we can engrave. Think about how much surface area there is and that will dictate both the size and length of the engraving. Even though space is a factor, you can still say a lot without using a lot of words. Think mainly about the questions you've answered already. Are you celebrating an event or date, are you sending congratulations, is the engraving meant to be a miniature immortal love letter, or are you personalizing a piece for your own purposes?

What do you want the engraving to look like?

When deciding between script fonts and block letter fonts, think again about the purpose. Romantic messages tend to lean more towards the script side where as men seem to prefer the more bold, geometric lines of a block font. The type of font can change the aesthetics greatly so it's another excellent way to further customize your piece.
