The Art of Engraving

Jewelry is something that we have always held close to our hearts. We wear it, we gift it, and we even create it for the pure joy of it. It can be something as inexpensive as a plastic bead bracelet, to a necklace made with the highest quality of gold and gemstones. It is something that can be extremely intricate or something incredibly uncomplicated. Some people wear it just because they like the way it looks, while others wear it because to them it is sentimental. No matter why you buy or wear jewelry one thing remains constant, we want it to feel special. One of the easiest ways to transform a simple piece of jewelry into a unique custom piece, is through engraving.
Engraving is the art of cutting or carving a design into a surface. It is one of the oldest techniques that jewelers use and it still remains one of their most important. Historically craftsmen would use a sharp steel tool, known as a burin or graver, to perform engravings. Though hand engravings are still popular today, modern technology allows for machine engravings that use a higher degree of precision to perform engravings. Engravings that were originally only able to be done by hand are now done using advanced machinery, precision lasers, or even highly pressurized water. Computer technologies also allows jewelers to create complex designs and engrave them flawlessly. The process of engravings may have changed throughout time, but people’s reasons for wanting them has remained constant.
