Engraving Jewelry As A Gift
The Personal Touch
Engraved bracelets are a great gift idea if you are thinking about buying a present for someone very special to you. What’s particularly nice about them is the fact that they are totally personalized and customized. In other words, whoever is on the receiving end of your special gift (whether it is your wife, girlfriend, mom, sister, friend, or anyone else dear to your heart), is bound to appreciate your thoughtfulness and the fact that you took the time to make an extra effort to make her gift truly unique.
And in the end, isn’t that what is most special about engraved bracelets (or engraved rings or any other piece of jewelry that you might have engraved)? Engraving the piece gives you the chance to express your profound love for the recipient of your gift. Perhaps the particular engraving that you choose will only have a special meaning for the two of you, or perhaps its meaning will be totally obvious to anyone who reads it.
Maybe the engraving will be on the underside of the bracelet or ring where no one else can see it, or maybe it will be on the outside, where the whole world can see it. Perhaps it will be a special date (such as an anniversary date) or maybe it will be a person’s name or a few words of love. Again, what it actually says is totally up to you!
One key factor to consider when looking into purchasing engraved bracelets (or rings or anything else) is how the person might respond to the gift. Will the person want to be included in the engraving process so that she might know in advance exactly what it will say? Or, would she prefer to be totally surprised? Only you know for sure. Some people adore surprises, while others absolutely despise them.
How does your sweetheart (or mom or sister or friend) feel about being surprised? Does she enjoy it? If so, you might want to take a chance and surprise her. If not, you will definitely want to include her in every step of the engraving process, so that she can have a full say in the final result. (Believe me, it will be better for everyone if she is involved, as surprising her may only upset her, and that is defininitely not your goal.) You are also conveying to her that you know and understand her if she is not a "Surprise me" kind of person and you choose to include her throughout the entire process.
