Types of Engraving

Now that you have your quote, what types of engraving can be done with your jewelry? Let's take a look at them. 


One of the oldest and most laborious engraving types is the hand-engraving option. Often, this engraving is done by a skilled artisan with a small engraving tool. Since a human completes the work, it will have that personalized touch, meaning you will get a unique look to the etching. Many people choose hand-engraving because of its craftsmanship value and old-world charm. Out of all of the options, hand-engraving is one of the most time-consuming ones to complete. 

Rotary Machine Engraving

With this engraving method, a machine controls the tool to create the engraving on the jewelry. Your design will be pre-programmed into the computer, meaning the engraving will be precise. Rotary machine engraving is an affordable option over hand-engraving because it takes less time to create the design. However, rotary machine engraving cannot be done with any heat-sensitive materials. During the process, friction from the tool can heat up the jewelry piece and cause damage. You will want to avoid this option on plastic, glass, or delicate gemstones. 

Laser Engraving

Finally, the last engraving option is called laser engraving. This option is an adaptable and modern method for your jewelry. A laser beam is used for engraving the design. The engraver can adjust the beam's thickness to decrease or increase the overall width of the engraving. Plus, they can also strengthen the laser beam to carve deeper into the base material, improving the texture of the engraving. Laser engraving is exceptionally versatile. The engraver can use it on almost any type of material, even delicate paper. Laser engraving is commonly used on jewelry and glass items. 

Common Uses of Engraving

Along with engraving quotes, there are other elements you can engrave into your jewelry. 


If you want something uncommon, think about engraving your gemstones. These beautiful pieces were very popular during the ancient times and had a brief period of resurgence under Queen Victoria's reign. Today, it is rare to find intaglios produced by mainstream jewelers, but you can enlarge your gemstones for a unique piece. 

Decorative Engraving

For those who want to add a stylish element to their jewelry, decorative engraving can achieve those results. This engraving creates decorative patterns on the shoulder of the ring band. Antique jewelry is often hand engraved, making these pieces more valuable. 


If you want to add any of these sayings and quotes to your jewelry, you will have an inscription. This type of engraving is a great way to personalize jewelry, making it more special for you. Many inscriptions can be completed by a laser engraver or a rotary machine at a jewelry store. However, if you want a one-of-a-kind look, consider finding an artisan to create a hand-engraved inscription for your jewelry.

Now that you know the basics of engraving and have a few ideas in mind, choose your favorite piece and make it personalized.

The Perfect Words for the Perfect Occasion

Now you’re ready to choose the perfect engraving fit for your occasion!

Engravings are a powerful way to remember, celebrate, inspire, and support those you love. 

Make your jewelry last forever with meaningful engravings!
