Here are the engraving styles
Deep seal engraving
Traditional deep seal engraving is created by carving your design deeply into the metal, hand engraving in reverse. As pendants can’t be used for making wax impressions, you may prefer to have your seal engraved using your design as it is seen on paper, i.e. not in reverse, you will need to make this clear by using the comment box found in your shopping bag.
Surface cut engraving
As with seal engraving, surface engraving is produced by hand, using handheld gravers that are push through the precious metal. Unlike seal engraving, they do not carve deeply into the metal – instead, a design is created by cutting hundreds of lines of varying widths and depths until the design comes to life. This method is ideal for pendants, as they do not undergo the same wear as signet rings.
Engraved message on the back
In addition, why not have a unique message or symbol hand engraved on the back of the pendant.
The Rebus team is made up of highly trained engravers who begin work as teenagers on apprenticeship with Goldsmiths, where they train for five years before mastering their skills in the work place. Traditional and personally practised styles are developed at their work benches, where they spend hundreds of hours perfecting the skill required to help create superb fine pieces of personalised jewellery.
