About bespoke family crest

Crest engraving refers to the intricate art of carving a design onto a piece of jewellery, typically in the form of a family crest or emblem.

Crests, also known as heraldic crests, are traditionally associated with family heritage, nobility, and a ‘distinguished’ lineage. They often feature a combination of symbols, animals, colours, and intricate patterns that represent a family's history, achievements, or values. Crest engraving allows these unique and meaningful designs to be permanently etched onto jewellery, transforming them into exceptional heirlooms. There is nothing to say you can’t start your own family tradition and design your own family crest. In fact, we actively encourage it.

The process of crest engraving begins with a design, which can be created by one of our skilled artists or based on a pre-existing family crest. The design is then carefully transferred onto the surface of the jewellery. Once the design is in place, the engraver uses specialised tools, such as gravers or bruins, to remove small amounts of metal and create the desired pattern.

The engraving process requires exceptional skill and precision. The engraver must carefully control the depth, angle, and pressure of their tools to ensure that the lines and details of the crest are accurately carved. This delicate technique allows for intricate patterns, fine lines, and subtle textures to be created, resulting in a captivating and highly detailed design.

Some crest engraving can be 3D and stand proud of the ring. This type of crest ring is usually cast. The design is drawn and then a mould is made for it to be cast to create a convex design. This is also a fantastic way of making multiple pieces for your family. 

Crest engraving can be performed on various types of jewellery, including rings, pendants, cufflinks, and signet rings. It adds a touch of personalization and distinction to a piece, making it truly one-of-a-kind. Whether it is a family heirloom, a commemorative piece, or a symbol of personal identity, crest engraving elevates the jewellery's significance and transforms it into a cherished treasure. Your journey towards a bespoke crest begins here.
