Hand Engraving: Jewelry into Art

If you have a special piece that you’d like to make into something truly special, hand engraving just might be the service for you.

A dying art, hand engraving is the process by which our highly skilled artisans use manual-hand tools to carve intricate designs, messages, or motifs onto a given piece of jewelry.

Not to be confused with our machine or laser engraving services, hand engraving is a technique that produces a one of a kind look that can’t be replicated.

The result is an inscription that is impossible to copy, characterized by its depth, texture, and its carver’s signature style.

At TeLayne Designs, we specialize in creating one-of-a-kind pieces, and this applies to hand engraving too. If you have a piece you’d like to personalize and turn into a work of art, contact us for a complimentary consultation.

Hand Engraving FAQs

The main types of techniques commonly used to engrave jewelry are hand engraving, machine engraving, and laser engraving.

The differences between each engraving style lies within the techniques used and the aesthetics they produce.

Hand engraving makes use of manual hand tools to literally carve and etch inscriptions within a given piece of jewelry. Machine and laser engraving makes use of hand powered tools, and lasers respectively.

With hand engraving, given the manual nature of the technique each part of the inscription is entirely unique; the width, depth, and angle of each carve is entirely unique. This produces an unmistakable aesthetic that’s one-of-a-kind.

With machine and laser engraving, the powered tools used help create an aesthetic that is clean and uniform – which is beneficial when one desires a motif or a font of text to be accurately replicated within an engraving.

The sky’s the limit when it comes to what you can get hand engraved onto your piece. From texts, to quotes, to dates, symbols and motifs, we can engrave whatever you wish. There are exceptions to this, of course, depending on the area available and the piece at hand.

For a more accurate idea of what we can engrave on your jewelry, please feel free to get in touch with the TeLayne Designs team.

As long as there is ample, accessible space on the piece and its material is suited for it, hand engraving can be done. Pieces that can be hand engraved include rings, pendants, cufflinks, wedding bands and so forth.
