Hand engraving is an ancient form of cutting or carving precious metals. It is a means of enhancing items which has remained relatively unchanged since medieval times, and is still dependent upon the practitioner’s artistic abilities and technical expertise.
Our resident engraver is an exceptional artist, who works using his expert eye, photographic memory and steady hands. His traditional rudimentary tools and materials include French chalk, oil of wintergreen and specially shaped gravers.
The art of engraving can add additional meaning, depth of character and a personal touch to your treasures. Text (initials or facsimile script) and images (designs and coats of arms) can be added to various items. Silverware, rings, watches and other jewellery make the perfect engraving surfaces.
