Tools down for the final time of 2019! It’s been another fantastic year with more amazing clients entrusting us to bring their ideas to life. We’ve met some truly wonderful people this year, and also reconnected with previous clients who have returned for more!
We’re very fortunate to be part of such an amazing jewellery industry and community; there’s been lows amongst the highs this year, both personally and for colleagues in the trade – the support we received, and have seen given to others, is beautiful.
We don’t get to share images of all the commissions Ray works on – but below is a highlight of what’s crossed his workbench this year, each one with their own special story. There are already some exciting commissions booked in for 2020 and we look forward to sharing these with you next year.
We wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas & a healthy and happy New Year….2020, we’re coming for you!!!
Are you thinking of getting the love of your life a surprise gift for your wedding day? Maybe you're thinking of buying him a watch as a token of your love and a reminder of the best day of your lives so far?
How about going a step further and having a secret message hand engraved on the back of the case...making it a truly personal gift for the Groom; just imagine his surprise upon opening it when getting ready with his Groomsmen!
The options of what to engrave are endless - your entwined initials, your wedding date or your favourite saying are the most popular options. Unlike laser engraving, this will last a lifetime no matter how often the watch is worn.
What would you engrave for your Groom?
This week we reached a significant milestone on our Instagram page - 30,000 followers!
It's hard to imagine what 30,000 people actually look like....but to give you an idea it's enough to fill Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne more than twice!
Below is an image of the new Bankwest Stadium in Parramatta, Australia - seating capacity 30,000 people - how incredible is that to think we could fill it with our loyal followers?!
Thank you to all of our followers, old & new, who have shared this crazy dream with us, you've help us reach this milestone with all your likes, comments and shares and we're eternally grateful.
An even bigger thank you goes to our wonderful clients....without you there wouldn't be much to post! We love your passion and respect for hand engraving, your openness for creativity and your willingness to let us share your commissions. Every piece has a special story and we're honoured to be a part of that - THANK YOU!!

Many couples wish to have matching wedding bands and hand engraving is a great way to personalise your rings. We've had lots of clients wishing to include their spirit animals and as long as you're opting for fairly wide bands this is absolutely not a problem! We advise a minimum width of 7mm for this style of work. Rings are available from London Engraver in Sterling Silver, 9ct & 18ct yellow/white/rose gold and platinum.

This is an original hand engraved steel plate used for printing an illustration in Charles Dickens' novel Martin Chuzzlewit. It was engraved in 1844!!
The plate would be engraved in reverse to produce a positive image. This piece was exhibited at the State Library of Victoria in Melbourne.
