Hand Engraving Options

We offer two styles of engraving, "for show" or "seal" engraving. "Seal" engraving is cut in reverse to the depth where the ring can be used to create a positive wax impression. "For show" is engraved the same way as the artwork appears and is not as deep as a seal. As the name "for show" suggests the detail from the engraving is for show compared to a seal engraving where the detail comes through on the wax impression that the ring creates. Although Seal engraving is the traditional choice we see a high demand for the "for show" engraving. Click here to learn more about the history of seal engraving.

All seal engravings will come complete with a wax impression produced using your ring.
