Soulful Creations: The Art of Engraved Jewellery

There isn’t a precise definition for narrative jewellery. With an undefinable charm, this elite genre of exclusive jewellery is thoughtfully personalised.


Without delving into academic definitions, you can explain narrative jewellery as an embellishment that communicates and has a soul. It is much more than just visual brilliance. The idea behind engraved jewellery is to capture emotions and create memories.

Boutique creations with unparalleled personalisation


This collection has few pieces. The emphasis is solely on creating boutique pieces, perhaps some not-to-be-repeated designs. Each piece of engraved jewellery offers room for embellishment in the form of engraving, imprinting, etching, or embossing. 


This is not about mere style or grace. Engraved narrative jewellery caters to those who believe that messages are beautifully conveyed in few words.. This range is about indulgent personalisation where each alphabet or symbol needs your creative pondering.


The outcome is meaningful pieces that can be treasured for a lifetime, some perhaps even heirlooms and others that are immortalised with the intimate thought they carry. Yes, it wouldn’t be wrong to define this niche as Keepsake or Soulful Jewellery—this collection is about transformational pieces that are about you and not what style gurus preach!



Inanimate creations that emote and express


There is a thin line separating symbolic jewellery from narrative jewellery. Either way, these are exclusive engraved jewellery pieces that have a persona. Rather than accentuating your wardrobe, they have a tale to share. Everyone involved in creating something so special – the wearer, owner, creator – must understand that such a narrative cannot be categorised.


It cannot be categorised as being correct or flawed. What might seem like eternally charming pieces to you might seem creatively flawed to others. However, these are not imperfections. This is the essence of narrative jewellery. It communicates to a few in a crowd, its splendour is restrained, and its unaccountable worth is more emotional rather than being a computed number.


Narrative jewellery engravings can be abstract ideas or rooted in pure materiality—there are no standards to follow here. Links of London collection of narrative necklaces include sterling silver mini disc charms and petite engravable jewellery pendants embellished with stylish chains. With these narrative necklaces, you can engrave your message on both sides of the pendant to make it extra special.



Keepsake jewellery that tells stories


Engraved jewellery is much more intimate, sentimental, unique and therefore, precious! The smallest words, initials, monograms or dates can be very meaningful. A lesser-known fact about engravings on jewellery is that it is one of the oldest practised art forms, which has been impressively documented. 


However, the finesse has evolved over the decades. This is apparent when you view the detailed artwork-like jewellery engravings we render on traditional signet rings where family names or signatures are often the preferred option. Now, the customised engraving jewellery range includes rings, charms or cufflinks. The engraving choices will usually include a significant date, the name of a place with a connection, or anything that is at par with a legacy to continue.


You can get more creative and try doodled motifs—there are no rules to what you want to get imprinted on a ring or charm. These are not fashion accessories. You are buying keepsake jewellery that will forever be the best conversation starter!



Impossible to acquire art fuelled by passion


Engravable jewellery is not for the standard craftsmen. This is not an acquired art or trained skill. This is about using years of experience in shaping forms and thoughts and then applying it to customised jewellery. 


The engravings are essentially distilling and condensing ideas or thoughts. In a way, the challenge lies in saying the most but with canvas struggling with minimal room for visual representation. For many jewellery makers, narrative engraved jewellery includes sensual possibilities, while others interpret it as jewellery that is more connected with the human form. 


A bracelet or dangler disc carrying the etching is an exhibition of feelings—an artwork that is seldom given its due credit. These striking pieces can be about lust, love, achievements, remorse, redemption, or celebrations!
