Make your jewellery extra special by adding engraving

All of our engravable jewellery is machine engraved by our specialist team in our own studio. Choose from our three fonts - Roman, Vanessa or Script to give your jewellery that bespoke touch.

Vanessa - Family: Where life begins and love never ends
Script - Family: Where life begins and love never ends
Roman - Family: Where life begins and love never ends

Our Memory Keeper lockets can contain a hidden message which is revealed when the locket is opened. The Memory Keeper can be engraved across three panels on the reverse.

Our Four Photo Oval Charm lockets and Butterfly lockets can be engraved with initials and / or a date on the back, with an engraved message on two panels inside.

Our Four Photo Heart lockets are limited to one line of engraving on the reverse.

Most of our engravable two photo lockets take engraving on the reverse of the locket. Our engravable pendants and bracelets can be engraved with initials and dates. Please be aware that our engraving machine will automatically adjust the spacing and font size to fit the area to be engraved. For an even font size, please ensure the message is roughly the same legnth across panels and lines.

The best engraving messages are sayings and quotes that hold special importance to the loved one receiving the jewellery. Short messages work better than long ones. Initials and dates are always classic. Your message can be funny or as romantic as you wish.

It's also helpful to bear in mind the size and shape of the item for engraving as the character count is different for each item of engravable jewellery.
