Initials & Messages

Initial or letter jewellery is always in style. It's the first symbol that we connect with. For a personalised gift, you can't go wrong with initial jewellery. Check out our collection of initial jewellery here.

Our most popular personalised jewellery pieces are our initial necklace and initial bracelet. Perhaps a bracelet with your initials or the initials of a loved one. Or maybe you could include the initials of you and your partner as a meaningful present for Valentine's Day or for an anniversary.

Messages or quotes are a popular engraving option; they tend to have the most meaning behind them, adding further significance to the jewellery piece.

Engraved pieces with a sentimental message or a meaningful quote make a wonderful gift that can be treasured.

Maybe you could include the lyrics to their favourite song, or perhaps you could include a line from their favourite book or poem.

For Friendship Jewellery, you could get two pieces of jewellery engraved with different parts of a quote. Once the jewellery is in line, the quote will be complete.

Symbols & Numbers

From zodiac signs to emojis, symbols can add a personal touch and can say more than words.

Our most popular symbols are a heart, infinity symbol, star, crescent and cross.

Whether you choose something cute, romantic or spiritual, adding a symbol makes your jewellery truly your own.

Another option is to have two engraved jewellery pieces engraved with the same symbol, one for you and one to give to a close friend or loved one.

TIP: don't go over board on the symbols, having 2, 3, 4 symbols on the once piece can be too much, less is more.

Engraving jewellery with numbers that signify a special date or age is a great way to commerate the occasion. Our most popular number engravings are dates, roman numerals, and co-ordinates.
