The Benefits of Engraved Jewellery
Engraved jewellery is massively popular, and for a good reason. A personalised piece of jewellery will always be cherished, and shows commitment and thoughtfulness from the gift giver. Engraved jewellery such as personalised rings and personalised necklaces make a wonderful gift for both men and women, and over the years, personalised jewellery has evolved from pricey intaglio jewellery to classy necklaces and bracelets featuring names, dates, or other small messages.
An engraved necklace or personalised bracelet is a thoughtful gift, and the true value of your gift doesn’t lie in the item itself, but rather in the engraving. The engraving will serve as a permanent reminder of a special event, an important date (such as a wedding date, birthday etc), or simply the name of your loved one.
Engraved jewellery is much harder to lose due to the special significance that a personalised piece has with its wearer, and when a piece is engraved it becomes much more than just a piece of jewellery. Instead of a simple necklace, ring or bracelet, engraved jewellery becomes a memory, an emotion: it becomes far more valuable to the recipient.
The History of Jewellery
Jewellery has been an important aspect of culture for centuries. In most archaeological digs, jewellery has been an important find. Personalised jewellery is something that has existed since the dawn of time, too, with people using jewellery in all styles and designs to denote status, wealth, or to offer protection. Over the years, trends have come and gone with different eras bringing about changes to preferred jewellery design, and the metals and gems of which to create jewellery from.
In the Ancient world, and even today, gold is a valued metal that jewellery can be made from, and a lot of surviving antique jewellery is either made from gold, or, at some point in time, was embellished with gold. Though gold might be a preferred metal for jewellery, silver, iron and bronze have all also been used for jewellery throughout the ages. During the Viking era, hammered silver and iron were used extensively on armour and for necklaces and collars that were often impressed with shapes/patterns. These pieces of jewellery still survive today, and were used to show status amongst peers, and protect against bad luck.
Religion has also played a part in influencing the design and styles of jewellery. In most pieces of classic jewellery, we can see some form of religious symbolism, in particular in jewellery from the Middle Ages and the Tudor period. Ornate crosses and intricate Biblical designs were favoured amongst the elite, and were often used to show status.
Gemstones also come in and out of fashion over the years, too, but the cut of the stone often changes more than the actual gems themselves. In the Middle Ages, highly polished stones were often used for ‘scrying’ and for magnification. These gems were frequently set in gold and attached to a necklace or ring. As the time went on, the preferred gems for jewellery evolved from cabochon gems which were shaped and polished, to multi-faceted gems that sparkle under candle-light and the sunshine. Polished gemstones have been a popular choice for jewellery for many years, however during the rise of machinery and the Industrial Revolution, cut gemstones, rather than polished, saw a surge in popularity due to their sparkle.
With the rise of machine-cut jewellery came a movement to return to traditional jewellery crafting. Based upon a profound unease regarding the machine-led production of affordable jewellery, jewellers began to return to traditional methods, preferring cabochon gems over multi-faceted designs.
In modern days, jewellery comes in a wide variety of designs and styles. Whilst antique jewellery is still available to purchase, contemporary designs are often preferred due to the sheer diversity in styles. Minimalist jewellery is incredibly popular these days, and minimal bar necklaces and slinky snake chains and Venetian links are highly demanded for modern jewellery designs.
