We wanted you to know whom you are dealing with; in this day and age, we can never be too careful whom to trust and who not to.
We are a UK based business trading under Personalised Jewellery Limited; our company registration is with Company's House under the registration number: 08522124. We are also VAT registered with HMRC; our registration number is GB205134456.
We are a family business based in Abergele, North Wales, close to the border of England, near Wrexham, Liverpool and Chester.
You will find our address at the bottom of every page of our website.
Although we do not have a direct telephone line where you can speak to someone at any time (we work in a business noisy manufacturing environment), we can call you if required at a convenient time.
We are a professional company, not a bedroom seller or fly-by-night looking to make quick money. We care about our work and customers and intend to be around for generations. Nothing leaves our premises until James, one of our directors/master engraver, has given it the once over.
We can also promise you that we will never use fake metals, fake stones, poor tools, untrained labour, 2nd rate delivery services, or any other part of the order process that would jeopardise your final product; we do care. We would like to believe that our reputation precedes us.
We also understand that we can't get it right all the time, so if you have a problem with any product that we have personalised, don't hesitate to get in touch with us first. Unfortunately, we cannot offer refunds or replacements of personalised products; but we would like to see if we can make things right for you in one way or another. If you have made a mistake, we may even be able to offer a replacement at a discounted price.
Remember to check your personalisation as we cannot undo mistakes; we advise you to write your message, check your message, edit your message, re-check and then submit your message.

When engraving this item, we will centre your message in the best font size, ensuring that everything is in proportion to the product. We will also ensure any engraving is not too close to the edges; text will be over a suitable number of lines whilst being mindful of the wording within your message. The final engraving will be aesthetically pleasing to the eye with a professionally designed finish.
Of course, if you would like smaller or larger engraving or any other minor changes to the layout of your personalised message, just let us know in the 'additional personalisation instructions' box on the cart page.
Being professional designers, we understand things like leading, kerning, tracking, etc. We take all of these into account on every single job we engrave. We do not have live previews of engraving because we understand that computers compute and humans invent, design and create. We only ever use fundamental human skills to take care of your engraving.
We have a selection of fonts available for your personalisation. To see a preview and more information for each of our font choices, please select one of the following:
we can engrave other font styles by special request; please note this may cause a slight delay in the processing time of your order.

LOGOS, GRAPHICS & ARTWORK
If you want a logo, graphic or emblem, some handwriting or a child's drawing, we may be able to do this on some of our products.
Please be aware we will not engrave anything under Copywrite without express permission from the rights holder.
We also understand that our customers increasingly want to have emojis and icons within their personalisation; we have invested heavily to ensure that we have the latest technology that enables us to do just that.
From an 🍎 apple for a teacher to a ❤️ heart for a loved one, a 🤗 hug for a friend, or a 🐾 paw prints for a pet, sometimes an emoji can say more than words.
Please note emojis are limited to one per side of engraving.
Before you checkout, we advise that you check (proof-read) your personalisation, as once engraved, we cannot rectify your message.
✔ SPELLING check names or any other odd spellings or non-standard words, and don't forget that auto-correct on tablets and mobiles may change spellings as you type, so it is always best to double check everything once you are happy with your message.
✔ PUNCTUATION check you have added punctuation where needed, or if required or desired.
✔ DATES or NUMBERS check and re-check dates and numbers; you won't believe how easy it is to mistype something you think you know so well.
✔ FONT check the font you have chosen is suitable for all the words in your message.

When engraving personalised information, we always work in an unbiased manner; firstly, we are nonjudgmental about any content you wish to have engraved; secondly, we engrave the exact text you give us, as we understand that many nations and people: write, spell, punctuate, use sentence case and many other aspects of language differently; therefore we believe that we should not let our own bias interfere with your personalisation. Of course, IF we do spot something that doesn't look right, we will contact you first; therefore, we advise you to leave your mobile number during checkout, so if required, we can call or text you with any questions. And we promise we will never share your telephone number or any other personal information.
We know how good our engraving is, but we wanted you to see just how good it really is, after all why take our word for it!
We decided to take some really candid photos to prove it. No Photoshop, no filters, maybe some glare, a little camera reflection, just good old fashioned photographs that leave nothing to the imagination.
If you want engraving that is crisp, clean, deep, looks great and lasts a lifetime then our professional engraving is the perfect fit.
All photos are from actual items of jewellery we have made and engraved.
