Guidelines for Custom Engraved Jewelry & Gifts

We take great joy in creating meaningful keepsake treasures that have been designed in your heart. As a family-owned business, each custom engraved item is individually handcrafted in our Williamsburg, Virginia studio with careful attention to detail.

  • Inscription Length: Custom engraving guidelines regarding inscription length vary and are detailed on the specific product page.
  • Font Options: You are welcome to select from 10 different alphanumeric font styles for most designs. We are also able to engrave in any language (Aramaic, Latin, Greek, Hebrew, Gaelic etc).
  • Special Symbols: We are able to engrave a variety of symbols (i.e a cross, heart, dove, arrow, anchor, flower, feather, infinity, triquetra, ichthys fish etc.). To request a special symbol, simply leave us a note in the "Special Instructions" box found within your shopping cart.
  • Engraved Handwriting: We are able to engrave an exact scaled replica of your, or a loved one's, original handwriting. Handwriting is best duplicated when created in dark ink. Images should be in focus with a light background. Handwriting is best submitted on unlined paper. We are able to combine and join phrases from different samples if necessary. Please email your JPEG or PNG file that contains the handwriting that you would like engraved to deborah@clothedwithtruth.com. 
  • Finish Options: Our sterling silver and gold brass designs are available in your choice of a high polish mirror finish or a brushed satin finish. Likewise, the inscription may be darkened or left natural according to your preference.
  • Engraving Methods & Durability: We use either a rotary engraver or a laser engraver according to the type of metal/material which is to be engraved. Both engraving processes create crisp, clear inscriptions which are deeply engraved and will not wear or fade away.
  • Proofs: Proofs for all custom engraving projects are available upon request once you order has been received. Proofs may be requested in the "Special Instructions" box found within your shopping cart. Please be sure to enter an email address at checkout so that we may send you the proof.
  • Returns: Custom engraved items are created especially for you and are not eligible for return. For this reason we ask you to double check your design for proper capitalization, spelling errors, correct dates etc.
  • Inscription Limitations: We reserve the right to refuse any custom engraving requests that may be considered offensive, including but not limited to: profane, vulgar, irreverent, inappropriate, defamatory or otherwise degrading terms.
  • Creation TimelineOur current production time for custom personalized jewelry is approximately 1-3 days. During holiday seasons (Christmas, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day) production timelines may increase.
