These stone set pendants can be bought with either a 18ct or 9ct yellow gold mount to have the stone of your choice set into, perfect for engraving on one or both sides. Simply select your own initials or symbol to have hand engraved onto the stone and/or the back of the pendant, and our craftsmen will create a treasured piece for your jewellery collection.
Sardonyx stone comes in a wide range of natural colours and shades and is comprised of coloured bands: the top layer is called Sard and the bottom layer Onyx, giving the stone its name. The colours we use in our signet rings are a pale petrol blue top layer with a thicker layer of black onyx underneath.

All our stone-set pendants and rings can only be deep seal engraved. The gold reverse of the stone set pendants are suitable for surface engravings only. Please use the comment box found in your shopping bag to communicate any special engraving requests.
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.
