Hand engraving is a dying art. It takes a five year apprenticeship and a huge amount of time and skill to perfect.
These days most engraving is done by machine, which is quick and cheap but also fairly inflexible. It’s great for a flat surface like a pet disc, or very small surfaces like some rings, but it can’t be used on larger, curved surfaces like bangles.
We have teamed up with Duncan Baird-Murray; one of the few remaining hand engravers in the UK, to give you the opportunity to add hand engraving on those pieces within our range that have the surface necessary for them to work his magic.
By engraving your jewellery you can create a completely unique and personal gift which will be cherished for years to come and perhaps even handed down to the next generation.
Because size and fit is so difficult to judge online when you can't see and try on the jewellery first, and because adding engraving means you can no longer return it if it's wrong, there is a huge risk in getting something engraved before you see it.
The last thing we want is anyone to be disappointed or stuck with jewellery that isn't right, so we don't offer the engraving service ourselves. What we do offer is the chance to use our recommend engraver and create exactly what you want AFTER you have seen, and made sure you're happy with, your Corazon jewellery.
What we now offer is the chance to use our recommend engraver and create exactly what you want AFTER you have seen, and made sure you're happy with, your Corazon jewellery.
Here’s how it works:
All items where engraving is possible include this option on the product page and can be found in this Jewellery for Engraving section on our website.
To get a piece engraved all you need to do is place your order as normal.
We will get it to you within 2 working days and you can check the quality, style and fit to be sure it's something you want to keep.
Then send it to Duncan at the following address with a clear explanation of what you want to say (make sure all the spelling, punctuation and capitalization is as you want to see it) and exactly where on the piece you want it (underside, top side, one line, 2 lines and so on - be as clear and specific as you can).

He will engrave exactly what you ask and return it to you within 2 weeks.
Duncan's fees are as follows:
£15 + VAT & return Special delivery postage (approx £7.50 depending on weight) for anything up to 10 characters
£1.50 + VAT per character for every additional character.
So as an example. "Happy Anniversary Darling" is 23 characters so this would be £34.50 + VAT = £41.40 plus approx £7.00 postage.
