Engraving is the process of cutting, etching, carving, or otherwise inscribing a design on a hard surface. Engraving a piece of jewelry or another gift is a common practice, but the personalized nature of engraving makes each engraved piece unique. Popular choices of things to engrave on jewelry or other items include:
Engraving turns regular items into keepsakes or treasures. Adding an engraving to your gift for someone or to your own possession gives personality and personalization to the piece as well as detail, decoration, and beauty. Marking your jewelry, watch, picture frame, plaque, or other items with a specially chosen name, date, or message makes it unique and special. You make any item truly your own with engraving!
Giving an engraved gift shows its receiver how much thought and care you put into choosing the gift, while engraving something for yourself ensures you have a piece that reflects your style and what's important to you. Consider engraving your favorite piece of jewelry or a new gift to give the item something extra and add a special meaning that will last forever.
The short answer is that any gift or personal item can be engraved. At Hustedt Jewelers, we engrave anything made out of metal, plastic, or glass. We can engrave necklaces, rings, bracelets, or any other jewelry. Consider getting an engraved picture frame or a personalized trophy or plaque. Common items you might consider engraving include:
More pieces you might want to consider getting engraved include cuff links, pocket watches, money clips, knives, or anything else made out of a hard and durable material.
There are a variety of methods that can be used to create engravings. The most common ways to engrave are:
Although you can engrave an item with a personalized message for any occasion or none at all, engravings are often used to mark a special event. Some instances you might want to consider getting an engraving for include birthdays, engagements, weddings, births, holidays, and anniversaries, as well as any other event or time that holds special meaning to you.
Once you decide to engrave your jewelry, gift, or another item, carefully consider what message, date, pattern, or other information you want to engrave into the piece. First, consider the size and shape of what you want to get engraved. The size of the piece may limit you to a certain number of characters that can be engraved, so discuss how much text you will able to put on it with your jeweler.
Remember that adding an engraving makes the piece unique and personal, so consider choosing a date, symbol, or words that are especially significant to you or the person who will be receiving your thoughtful gift. Finally, it may help to create a list of possible inscriptions and review them over a period of time. Since the engraving will last forever, choose the one that you still like most after some time has passed.
