Hand engraving is the done by cutting the surface with finely prepared tool steel or carbide gravers. It’s one of the very last steps in creating a custom ring, so we can add engraving to existing pieces any time. Our master engravers cut every line by hand, and create the most detailed designs imaginable.
Carved & cast patterns usually have more depth and are part of the wax model, integrated right into the piece to ensure bolder, deeper elememts that last for a lifetime. While hand engraved patterns can be so light and delicate that only a sketch can accurately preview what they’ll be like on a finished piece, carved elements are generally in the CAD rendering & wax or grown model. This gives the opportunity to modify the design if it's not "just right" before its cast & finished.
