An alternative affordable laser crest engraving service & hand cast signet rings

Heavyweight Handmade Signet Rings, Cufflinks & Pendants Deep Reverse Crest Laser Engraving

I have over fourty years signet ring manufacturing experience starting at the age of 16 while at school formerly mass producing for mail order " Freemans of London"

& high street shops when I worked for Fred Manshaw in Hatton Garden

In 2018 suffering from Ostioarthritis and an unfortunate accident breaking my right scapular I found it necessary to change my manufacturing process by producing 26 finger size master patterns using 3D printing in all 12 of my signet ring patterns (312)

Technology Has Allowed Me To Produce New Designs & Signet Rings Without Joins

The majority of hand engravers use die stampings , this refers to the process of stamping out a semi-flat signet ring blank from sheet gold or silver which is then forged round by hand with a hide mallet and soldered at the back of the shank. Followed by a lot of filing , emmery paper to smooth and then highly polished on a rotary mop. Unfortunately I no longer have the strength and it is painfull anyway.

The secret signet ring images are CAD CAM drawn in 3D then printed in plastic

used as a master pattern the rings are then cast one at a time in Delft Clay / Sand

Deep Reverse Crest Seal Style Engraving Using A Yag Galvo Fiber Laser

Yag Galvo Fiber Engraving Is Unlike Any Other Machine Engraving , Deeper & Cleaner But More Time Consuming
.

As the majority of crest engravers are oversubscribed with retail orders , trying to get them to engrave at a discount to the jewellery trade is now very slow, generally I am quoted 6 weeks and at busy times of the year up to 10 weeks.

In 2014 when heraldry became the height of fashion once again , I invested over £30,000 in new machinery and pioneered the developement of reverse crest seal engraving using yag galvo fiber laser engraving machines, making crest engraving affordable for all. I now also supply a 3 week trade laser crest engraving service.
