Today I am looking at another gift idea that would delight any mom on Mother’s Day. Jewellery is always something I look forward to as a bit of a magpie, and I really don’t think you can be given anything more special that an engraved piece of jewellery, whether it be a watch, bracelet or a pendant. The Engravers Guild offers complimentary engraving on a wide range of items to suit both men and women, including truly lovely pieces of jewellery.
The beauty of the engraved pieces from the Engravers Guild is that the engraving is still done in the traditional way – not by a laser, but with diamond tipped cutters. This makes the name or message even more special, with a resonance that comes with the personal touch.
The Large Oval Scroll Rose Gold Locket is a stunning piece of jewellery, a sterling silver rose gold plated locket with a vintage style scroll design that gives it the impression of a vintage heirloom piece that you may just have found lurking in the bottom of granny’s jewellery box. The scroll has been hand carved, which I think is such a lovely detail in this age of mass produced jewellery, and you can of course add your own engraved message or name on the back. The locket opens so you can add a couple of photographs to the inside, the true beauty of any locket.
I had my locket engraved with my mantra ‘Carpe Diem’ ‘seize the day’. I wear this on a bracelet that acts as my lucky charm, but has also seen better days. I love it as a motto to live by, and it also contains part of my name – Em, which is what my family and friends call me, so it is totally fitting.
The personalised oval locket measures 18mm in width at the widest part, and 24mm in height. The chain offers an adjustable length of either 16 or 18 inches, which means you can choose the length that suits you, or wear at different lengths according to the neckline you are wearing at the time.
The Engravers Guild pieces are stylishly gift boxed in a monochrome box, and come with a gift card too, so there is no need for any further wrapping or packaging, they are ready to present to a loved one.
