started as a decorative technique around the 5th century B.C. It
predates acid etching and was often used with techniques such as
chasing and repousee. The latter methods employ a shaped metal rod
hammered against the metal to make an indentation. Hand engraving was
particularly popular in Greece during the 3rd and 4th centuries B.C. Hand
is different from other decorative techniques in the sharpness of the
lines and its permanence. Machine engraving cannot cut as deeply as
the hand technique. Stamping and etching are sometimes confused with
hand engraving, but the result is not as sharp. Lasers and die
cutting can also be used to cut into metal but the results look
machined rather than finely crafted. Our jewelry is designed for
those who love the style of antique engagement ring and wedding
bands. The intricate carving, delicate details and lacelike filigree
of such rings are the epitome of refinement and grace. Antique
engagement ring have graced the fingers of many modern-day starlets,
including Madonna, Kate Hudson, Reese Witherspoon and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
