Engraving Home

Hi, my name’s John.

I love engraving jewellery, glassware and watches. It’s been my passion for over 40 years.

I’m based at The Royal Exchange Manchester, in room 226 on the 2nd floor. Prior to this, I was at House of Fraser since 1978.

No two days are ever the same. The items engraved are as varied as the occasions they celebrate. But to this day, the most important piece of work is always the one being currently engraved; see a selection of hand and machine engraving on the video here.


All work is guaranteed to be of a high standard and at a fair price. Apple Pay, Contactless, Credit and Debit Cards are all welcome.

Inscriptions, signatures, logos, artwork and monograms can be inscribed on a variety of items, including:

• Rolex, Breitling & all makes of Watches
• Pocket Watches
• Apple Watches
• Samsung Galaxy Watches
• Google Smart Watches
• Wedding Rings (Inside and Out)
• Bangles and Bracelets (Inside and Out)
• Lockets (Inside and Out)
• Napkin Rings (Inside and Out)
• Engagement and Eternity Rings (Ditto)
• Bottles of Perfume and Cologne
• Medical Instruments

• Glassware and Crystal
• Golf Putters and Clubs
• Pens and Pen Clips
• Champagne Buckets
• iPods and iPads
• Titanium
• Tungsten Carbide
• Pewter
• Silver and Gold
• Musical instruments
• Bottles of Wine, Whisky & Champagne
• And at “On-Site” Corporate Events

With turnaround, a few days are always appreciated but if we’re able to do same day service, we will with pleasure.

If you live many miles away from Manchester, or it’s just inconvenient to travel into town, we’re as close as your local Post Office with Special Delivery for all jewellery and precious items.
