Personalised Engraving at John Greed

Personalised jewellery can create a lasting memento, allow you to express your own identity, and make a wonderful gift for someone you love, and people have been engraving jewellery since prehistoric times when decorative stones were hand carved. Fast forward to the 15th century when copper plate engraving was invented, becoming a popular method of adding identifying marks and messages, and traditional engraving as we now know it, was born.

Hand engraving was used for softer metals such as gold, silver and platinum but the advent of laser engraving has allowed much harder surfaces to be engraved. Now, all types of jewellery can be engraved, from rings and bracelets to watches and cufflinks, as well as accessories like trinket boxes, photo frames and keyrings.
