What is Engraving?

Engraving is a process of etching or carving a design into the surface of metal or other material using a blade.


There are many different types of engraving, including but not limited to: laser engraving, striker etching, drum sander etching, and chemical etching.


Some common uses for engraved rings include: personalized jewelry, gift tags, keychains, and dog tags.


Engraved rings can be made in different sizes and colors, and they can have any design you desire. They can also be coated in an electroplating material to make them more corrosion resistant.


Types of Engravings

There are a few different types of engravings that can be used on rings.


One type of engraving is laser etching. This is a process where a laser beam is used to create a design on the metal. It is very accurate and can be done in very small details.


Another type of engraving is sandblast engraving. This involves the use of a sand blast to remove the coating on the metal. Then, the metal is engraved with the desired design.


The last type of engraving is acid etching. This is also a very accurate process, but it uses an acid solution to etch the design into the metal. It can be done in very small details, but it takes more time than other methods.
