Creating a remembrance in honor of a loved one that has passed brings some peace as well as eases the grief of an aching heart.  Not only have ways to honor loved ones entered the accessory industry in the form of cremation jewelry but further personalizing these keepsakes by adding engraved text takes remembering to the next level.  These discreet markings are a personal way to enhance a tribute to those no longer living yet does not take away from the beauty of the accessory.

Engraving techniques

There are a myriad of methods for adding engraving to a keepsake and all involve precision and expertise.  One method involves using a diamond tip to etch the words into the top surface of the metal.  This type of engraving is typically very light and does not penetrate deep into the accessory.  Laser engraving uses a laser beam controlled by a computer and the personalization is cut into the surface of the metal.  Other types of engraving include the use of a small needle that makes indentations or impressions into the surface of the metal to create a personalization.

Selecting engraved text

Careful thought and planning should be given when selecting the text to be engraved onto a keepsake.  A name or pet name is a personal way to remember a loved one or pet as well as adding the years of birth and death.  If space allows, a particular saying or meaningful phrase that holds special meaning can be added in a variety of font selections.  Some keepsakes may even be engraved with a likeness in the form of a favorite picture or photo.  Keepsakes vary on lines and length of engraved text they can hold and double checking with the vendor gives added assurance for accuracy with the selected personalization.

Keepsakes can be engraved with personalization like:

  • A name or particular date

  • A meaningful phrase

  • An exact replica of a favorite photo

Holding tight to the memories shared with those that have passed away goes a long way to easing grief.  Specially designed memorial accessories can often be personalized with engraved text and special techniques provide distinctive and unique results.  Whether selecting a name, date or other type of specialty engraving, use care and consideration when deciding on the personalization and don’t hesitate to follow up with the retailer for added assurance to accuracy.
