This heart-warming little dog, seal engraved onto a handcrafted signet ring, also denotes fidelity, watchfulness and nobility. Chain not included.

Deep seal engraving
Traditional deep seal engraving is created by carving your design deeply into the metal, hand engraving in reverse. As pendants can’t be used for making wax impressions, you may prefer for us to seal engrave your design as it is seen on paper, i.e. not in reverse, please let us know by using the comment box found in your shopping bag.
Surface cut engraving
As with seal engraving, surface engraving is produced by hand, using handheld gravers that are push through the precious metal. Unlike seal engraving, we do not carve deeply into the metal - instead, we create the design by cutting hundreds of lines of varying widths and depths until the design comes to life. This method is ideal for pendants, as they do not undergo the same wear as signet rings.
Engraved message on the back
In addition, why not have a unique message or symbol hand engraved on the back of the pendant. Contact us to find out further details.
