    What is jewellery engraved with handwriting?

    Jewellery engraved with handwriting is a unique and meaningful type of personalised jewellery that features the actual handwriting of a loved one, friend, or family member. The process involves taking a sample of the person's handwriting, such as a note, card, or letter, and putting it onto the jewellery.

    The handwriting can be engraved onto a pendant, bracelet, ring, or other type of jewellery using a variety of techniques, including engraving, etching, or stamping.

    Handwriting jewellery is often used as a sentimental gift for special occasions such as weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, or as a way to remember a loved one who has passed away. It can also be used as a way to express your own personality or unique style, even featuring your own affirmations. Jewellery engraved with handwriting can be made from a variety of materials including gold, silver, stainless steel, and other metals, as well as materials such as leather, wood, or acrylic.

    How do you engrave jewellery with handwriting?

    There are a few different methods to create jewellery engraved with handwriting, including:

    1. Hand Engraving: This is a traditional method where a skilled artisan uses a specialised tool called a graver to carve the handwriting directly into the metal surface of the jewellery. This method requires a high level of skill and precision.
    2. Laser Engraving: This method uses a laser to burn the handwriting onto the surface of the jewellery. The laser is controlled by a computer program, which ensures that the engraving is accurate and precise.
    3. Rotary Engraving: This is where an engraving machine with a diamond tip etches the handwriting into the jewellery, again controlled via a computer.
    4. Stamping: This method involves creating a custom stamp with the handwriting, which is then pressed into the surface of the jewellery. This method can be done by hand or with the use of a machine.

    Regardless of the method used, the first step is to obtain a sample of the handwriting. This can be done by scanning or taking a clear photograph of the writing. Once the sample has been obtained, it is transferred onto the surface of the jewellery using one of the above methods. The final result is a beautiful and unique piece of handwritten jewellery that is customised to the individual's handwriting.

     How long does handwriting jewellery last?

    The longevity of jewellery engraved with handwriting depends on the quality of the materials used, the level of care given to the jewellery, and the method of engraving used. Generally, high-quality materials and careful handling can ensure that the jewellery lasts for many years.

    In terms of the engraving method, if you want your piece to last a long time, avoid simply ‘marking’ the jewellery and instead opt for a piece that has been properly engraved.

    It is important to note that all jewellery requires some level of maintenance to ensure it remains in good condition. This includes cleaning the jewellery regularly, avoiding harsh chemicals and exposure to extreme temperatures, and storing it away from sunlight when it is not being worn.

    Overall, with proper care and maintenance, handwriting jewellery can last for many years and can become cherished heirlooms that are passed down through generations. Shop jewellery engraved with handwriting here.
