    Default Seal ring

    Hi everyone
    I have been asked about a silver seal ring for a woman.
    I see that you can easily buy blanks but wondered if anyone out there can do the engraving.
    Also, will silver wear away quickly?
    They wanted a Hawk engraved (family emblem) say a kestrel or something similar.
    Just an enquiry at the moment
    Thanks
    Theresa

    Silver can deteriorate quite quickly if the ring is worn for rough work such as gardening for instance, so they need to be warned in advance Theresa.

    If you want a white metal, 9ct white is quite resistant to wear and won't break the bank. You can also incorporate some kind of border in your design to reduce surface wear.

    Whoever does the engraving will have some opinions as to the metal too. Dennis

    I remember Wayne teaching at college
    Anyway, a few engravers tend to use die-struck rings since they are much harder wearing.

    Hi Theresa,

    We can do that for you at GETi in either 2D or 3D laser engraving. There are some laser engraving samples here:

    This is the gold seal ring that they would like in silver. What sort of price for engraving?
