Choose an initial, number, name or word for me to engrave on a sterling silver disk:
Single letters and numbers are engraved on a 11mm or 12mm disk (based on availability) that I hand punch and polish into a charm;
Words, initials and names 4 characters or less will be engraved on a 12mm sterling silver disk;
Longer words or names, up to 8 characters, will be engraved on a 15mm or 16mm (based on availability) sterling silver disk.
Words and names are engraved in plain (single line) font, due to space.
I like to engrave in ALL CAPS so that the word/name stands out on such a small charm, however some longer names will not fit in all caps.
Maximum 8 letters, however I may be able to fit an extra 2 characters depending on the word – please inquire before ordering.
Please note that the longer the word, the smaller the font. Do keep this in mind when ordering. I personally like the look of larger letters, since the disks are small.
Although I am able to increase and decrease the size of each font there are limitations, and this is why there is a maximum amount of letters I can fit on each disk.
The style of engraving I do is known as diamond drag engraving using a manual Pantograph engraver. This form of engraving is considered obsolete since most is now done via computerized laser and rotary engraving. I have to rely on my skill and muscle to get the job done. 😉
I use mostly vintage brass font sets so I like to think my customers are not only getting a handmade personalized item but a piece of history as well.
This is not the same as hand stamping where the letters are blackened to stand out. Any dark appearance in my photos is due to reflection or shadow. The diamond tip leaves an impression into the metal, so it’s a tried and true, subtle form of personalization.
Your choice of several different lengths of sterling silver chain. Chain may vary slightly from picture depending on availability at time of order.
This is a made to order item and can take between 1-2 business days to complete, though I strive to turn around orders in 1 business day. Made and shipped from my home studio in Nova Scotia, Canada.
