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 the inside of a diamond ring, a nurse’s fob watch, or your own 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.
