Why Hand Engravers Are Disappearing

Hand engravers are disappearing due to a combination of factors. Firstly, advances in technology have made machine engraving more efficient and cost-effective. This has led to a decrease in demand for hand engraving services. All engravings were done by hand until about a decade ago.  With the advent of machine engravers, the bulk of engraving didn’t require a hand engraver. As a result, they saw their work levels drop significantly.  Throw in the great recession, where many in the jewelry industry left or retired.  And you are left with the situation now.  And that is that there is a dearth of hand engravers.

Additionally, the traditional art of hand engraving requires years of skill and practice to master, making it less attractive to younger generations who may prefer careers with quicker returns on investment. Lastly, the decline in demand for engraving not able to be done by a machine has also contributed to the decline of hand engravers. Despite these challenges, it is important to recognize and support the remaining hand engravers, as they are custodians of a valuable and intricate craft.

Hand Engraving Is Far Superior To Machine

Hand engraving is a superior method compared to machine engraving for several reasons. Firstly, hand engraving allows for a level of precision and artistry that machines simply cannot replicate. The skilled hand of an engraver can create intricate designs and delicate details that add a personal touch to any piece. Additionally, hand engraving offers a wider range of customization options, as engravers can adapt their technique to suit the specific needs and preferences of each client. Lastly, hand engraving creates a unique and timeless quality that cannot be replicated by machines, making it a preferred choice for those seeking a truly special and one-of-a-kind piece.

With one of the few remaining hand engravers available local to us, we can offer couples with unlimited possibilities when it comes to custom engraved wedding bands. They can order anything from their spouse’s name and wedding date, to a special pattern or image that holds some significance to their relationship. Did you and your significant other have a special saying? A favorite pastime? A nostalgic place that you go back to time and time again? We can engrave words, patterns and shapes onto your engraved wedding rings.  This will create a special set of jewelry that is literally imprinted with a memento from your relationship.

Designs can be engraved onto wedding rings that are cast in sterling or argentium silver, rose gold, white gold, yellow gold, palladium or platinum, and can be made between 4mm to 12mm wide. Engraved wedding rings can range from a size three to a size sixteen. Any type of accent stone can also be incorporated into engraved wedding rings, including diamonds, rubies, sapphires and emeralds.  And this is just for a ubiquitous plain band.

What Will My Hand Engraving Look Like When Completed

Unfortunately, hand engraving isn’t like CAD, where we can go back and change something.  Hand engraving is final once the metal is cut.  Because of this, many worry that a hand engraved wedding ring won’t look like the design they want. Luckily, our hand engraver is usually able to meticulously recreate any design or pattern onto the ring using traditional hand engraving techniques. He takes great care to ensure that every detail is accurately replicated, resulting in a personalized and unique piece of jewelry. Whether it’s a specific pattern, initials, or a special symbol, our hand engraver will work closely with the customer to bring their vision to life.

However, that is not to say it will be a perfect replica.  Being done by hand, there might be slight differences. That is just the nature of doing something by hand. But even then, we are talking about millimeters of space where the engraving goes. When worn, any differences will not be visible to the eye.

One shortcoming of engraving machines is the lack of fonts. They are generally limited to a few plain and classic fonts.  You also can’t engrave different sizes.  You usually get about 2mm tall letters. A hand engraver can use any font. They can also make letters as large as the ring will allow.
