Essentially, stamped pieces are handmade and engraved pieces are made by machine -- but it's worth delving in a little deeper to get a better understanding of which might be the right choice for your piece.
When your piece is stamped, each letter is done one at a time -- by hand -- using special metal punches. It’s a traditional smithing technique that allows for each of our pieces to be truly one-of-a-kind.
Engraving, on the other hand, is done by machine. Engraved pieces turn out looking more flawless, but might not have the same unique character of our stamped pieces. What you prefer for your piece is really up to you!
Please note that certain pieces in our shop, such as our Handwriting Necklace, can only be only be engraved, as the unique handwriting sample is provided by the customer and cannot be replicated by our metal stamps.
