Personalise jewellery and keepsakes with hand-engraved letters, numbers or a short message. Oh My Giddy Aunt is proud to offer good, old-fashioned engraving by hand as an in-house service. Each piece is individually engraved in a traditional script font using a hand held burr to carve each letter permanently into the metal. Just like a signature, each inscription is unique and retains the personal characteristics of something crafted by hand. 

The engraving cost depends on the number or characters needed. Please select the number of characters needed from the drop-down menu. Characters are letters or numbers, not spaces. The starting price is the set up fee for the piece to be engraved. 

Initials are engraved in UPPERCASE. Words are usually engraved in UPPER & lower case letters as words engraved in all in UPPER case are too swirly to read.  Dates also look better engraved with full stops rather than slashes - eg 21.12.20 rather than 21/12/20. 

Most jewellery and gifts in the Oh My Giddy Aunt range can be hand-engraved. We will contact you if your choice isn't possible, or please contact us if you would like to discuss your options first. Engraving in-house means our prices are very reasonable. Hand-engraving may add a day or two to your order - please let us know if you need it by a certain date and we will do our best!

Please note: Part of the unique appeal of hand-engraved letters is that they will never be uniform or perfect. If you are looking for completely uniform letters you'll need laser, computer or machine engraving. Laser & machine engraving is lighter than hand engraving but letters are perfectly formed - unlike humans.  Inscriptions are also engraved on the diagonal where possible.
