I remember when we used to get asked to engrave our silver charms, necklaces and pendants many years ago - it involved a long process of sending it off to an expert hand engraver in London, took a long time to do with a long lead time and usually left a big dent in a customer's pocket.
During the last few years we have taken it upon ourselves to become our own master engravers using a range of hard learned skills and traditional tools to expand our range of personalised silver necklaces.
Our in-house engraving tools include an antique WWII engraving machine which is beautiful to behold (if a little on the noisy side) - and by having our own fonts made for different designs we have been able to make our original personalised necklaces and engraved bracelets stand out from the crowd. Unlike the many other designer jewellery companies offering necklaces with simple stamped-in letters, Scarlett's original range of fonts give you something extra. Laura is our in-house engraving expert and rarely a day goes by she's not etching a personal message into something new.
But why the sudden demand for personalised jewellery? I think having a bespoke piece of jewellery made for you, be it a charm or pendant, has always been a costly process, and I think this is one reason why personalised jewellery has become such a popular alternative - you get to have your own one-of-a-kind piece made just for you without breaking the bank.
We've been increasing our range of personalised silver necklaces by popular demand - and from reading your reviews and stories it's not hard to see why people love them so much. Apart from being an affordable way of giving something original and unique not owned by anyone else, it's often noted that the recipient of the gift always loves it, and forever thinks of the person who gave it to them. Another popular choice is to engrave your children's names so you carry them close to your heart when you're at work or away from home.
There will be more brand new personalised necklaces coming your way this autumn in plenty of time for Christmas - more easy gifts for you to choose from. All you have to do is think of the message, we do the hard bit in making it for you. It's time to get your creative heads on...
