Hi, my name’s John.
I’m a local engraver in city centre Manchester where I’ve been engraving by hand and machine for over 40 years. I’m based here at the Royal Exchange, Room 226 on the 2nd floor. Previously at House of Fraser.
Over the years, it’s been my privilege to engrave many items of jewellery and glassware, but to this day, the most important piece of work is always the one being currently engraved, be it a diamond ring, titanium bicycle frame or a loved one’s signature on a bottle of Champagne.
The items we engrave are as varied as the occasions they celebrate. Some examples are here on the video.
We operate in a safe retail environment implemented by NHS guidelines.
All work is guaranteed to be of a high standard and at a fair price. Credit and Debit Cards, Contactless, Apple Pay and Bank Transfer are all welcome.
If you live many miles away from Manchester, or prefer not to travel into town, we’re as close as your local Post Office and recommend using Special Delivery for all jewellery and precious items (“International Tracked” for the Republic of Ireland: An Post) All Royal Mail is delivered directly into our workshop. If you’re using an alternative carrier, please check if they deliver directly to our workshop on the 2nd floor as not all carriers do. Postal work has been in particular demand since the covid outbreak.
Rossendale jewellers, Whiting & Wilson who are open Tuesday to Friday will take items on our behalf as a drop off and pick up service. Please contact us for details if this is more convenient for you.
