Seal Engraved Signet Ring

Our seal engraver has just finished cutting a crest in to the surface of this signet ring.  Like the other ring featured in ‘Off The Leash…’, the family crest has been engraved in relief (in the negative) so that the crest appears in the positive when the ring is pressed in to sealing wax.  Take a look at the photograph of the wax impression and you will see just how much detail has been included to produce a crest that has definition and texture.  More than that though, the engraver has really captured the essence of a regal lion; a perfect example of the immense skill of a master craftsman.

    • Hi Marie

      Thanks for your enquiry – typically to seal engrave a crest costs from £250 depending on complexity. Would be very happy to discuss your needs in greater detail.

  1. Hello could you please let me know how much it would cost for a ladies gold crest engraved ring. For the ring and engraving. The crest is Crawford if you would like to look at the detail for a more accurate price. Also what would your time scale be.

    kind regards
    Helen Crawford

    • Hi Helen

      We have lady’s signet rings in stock priced from approximately £300 in 9ct gold – these are die stamped signet rings made especially for seal engraving. Seal engraving a crest starts at £250. you will need to provide precise details of the crest and we will uses this to copy and hand cut the crest in to the ring. If we engrave a ring from stock, expect the engraving to take 3 weeks. If we have to have the ring especially made for you please allow 5-6 weeks from start to finish. The best thing is to pop in to the shop as we have at least 6 alternative ovals rings to suit a lady and you really should see these for yourself – do give us a ring on 01962 732200 for more information.
