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 into the metal.
Just like a signature, each inscription is unique and retains the personal characteristics of something crafted by hand. Hand engraved letters will never be completely uniform, which is part of their unique, old-school appeal. If you prefer completely uniform letters please choose Laser or Machine engraving. Laser & machine engraving is lighter than hand engraving but uniform.
Initials are engraved in UPPERCASE. Words are usually engraved in UPPER and lower case letters It is better not to write words all in UPPER case as they are too swirly. The cost of engraving will depend on the number or characters needed. Please select the number of characters needed from the drop-down menu.
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!
