No family crest? Would you like something other than your initials?

If you believe you have no family crest or you do not know your family crest, you could consider having a different engraving. Of course there is always the option to have your initials in a monogram or cypher.

Or, you could have a beautiful signet ring  which has been engraved with a logo, emblem or something which is special and unique to you.

Here are some stunning examples of alternative engravings:

A word or two about engraving

Our engravers do not ‘stamp’ the engraving, they use fine tools with diamond tips to carve the gold, gemstone or silver out of the ring to make a reverse engraving.. So they can see how the engraving is coming along, they use something a bit like blu tack or plasticine to push into the ring every few minutes so they can see the engraving forming and make adjustments as necessary. This is a breathtakingly fine art, and the best engravings are made by the most skilled craftsmen we can find.
