Ring Engraving and Watch Engraving

Whilst we can engrave many different types of jewellery including pendants, bracelets and bangles; rings and watches are the most popular jewellery items to have personalised.

The inside of an engagement ring is the perfect place for a private message to your future fiancée or a wedding ring with the lyrics of your first dance, for example, are beautiful ways to make your rings personal to you.

Laser engraving is ideal for delicate and intricate text on small jewellery items. With incredible precision, our experts offer ring, watch, bracelet or pendant engraving. However, we can facilitate larger objects with our rotary engraving machines too.

Engraved Rings: An Everlasting Symbol of Love

Wedding rings are worn to represent eternal love and commitment. The circle is the symbol of infinity, with no beginning and no end. Combined with a heartfelt message or a quote from your wedding vows, an engraved ring adds to the beautiful symbolism of your chosen wedding bands. Whether you wish to have a gold ring engraved, or any other metal type for that matter, your ring is in safe hands when you choose Ernest Jones engraving services.

Engraved Watches: A Timeless Keepsake They Will Love

Our expert engravers have a wealth of knowledge and experience working with watches and have the skill to take a beautiful watch and give it a distinctive touch. An engraved watch makes for a perfect anniversary, birthday or graduation gift. Watches have long been a popular present for special occasions and celebrations, and having that special gift engraved truly marks the special occasion.

Whether it’s a congratulatory message, a declaration of love, or a thank you for always being there, watch engraving with Ernest Jones is the perfect way to convey your everlasting message. If you already have a watch in mind, something in his or her collection already, think about what that timepiece means to them and the type of message you want to send. Or, if you are looking for a new ladies’ watch or watch for him, the perfect watch and engraving combination is at your fingertips right here with Ernest Jones.

What Can’t Be Engraved?

We don’t currently offer engraving services on leather goods, glass, crystal, enamel or ceramic unless they have a section of metal on them upon which to work. Of course, then we would be able to engrave them the same way as other metal jewellery or keepsakes.

Do All Ernest Jones Stores Offering Engraving Services?

Yes. The good news is that you can take your jewellery to any Ernest Jones store where our experts will talk you through the process, give you a quote and ensure the utmost care of your jewellery. We want you to be thrilled with the finished result, so we will ensure you have a full understanding of how your concept will turn out. We will usually have your engraved jewellery back and ready to be loved within 10 days.

What Jewellery Can Be Engraved?

We focus on engraving rings, bangles, pendants, bracelets & watches but if it’s metal and has an engravable space we should be able to engrave on it using our professional tools and know-how. We can engrave jewellery as small as 0.5mm in diameter or thickness and engraving on a curve is no problem either. However, 0.5mm is minuscule, so do ensure that if you are looking specifically for engravable wedding bands, you choose something upon which you will be able to read the engraved message.

Our in-store experts are a fountain of knowledge when it comes to all things jewellery and will be happy to help. Why not book an appointment to discuss your engraving ideas with them and see your everlasting message of friendship or love brought to life?
