Can You Get Your Memorial Glass Jewellery Engraved?

Memorial glass jewellery is not just a piece of jewellery; it holds immense sentimental value, often being the most treasured item you own. Naturally, you might want to personalize it with an engraving, whether it’s a heartfelt message to remember a loved one or a thoughtful gift for someone dear.

How to Get Your Cremation Glass Jewellery Engraved

Some cremation glass jewellery companies offer engraving services, though it can be quite specialized. Larger online companies typically take 6-8 weeks to deliver engraved jewellery, while smaller businesses might have a shorter turnaround time. For instance, at Ash Glass Design, we complete orders in about 2-3 weeks.

When a company offers engraving, you usually request it when placing your order or sending your ashes and order pack. It’s worth checking if the engraving is done in-house or outsourced, as this can affect the quality and delivery time. At Ash Glass Design, we use a state-of-the-art engraving machine that employs a traditional diamond-drag technique for precision.

Which Pieces of Cremation Jewellery Can Be Engraved?

Not all pieces of cremation jewellery can be engraved due to size constraints. For example, engraving on the back of an earring would be incredibly challenging. Generally, the larger the piece, the easier it is to engrave.

Commonly engraved pieces include:

  • Cremation glass rings
  • Cremation glass pendants
  • Cremation glass art sculptures (if they include a metal plaque for engraving)

I particularly enjoy engraving messages that are quirky and personal, like a favourite saying or in-joke, as these add a unique touch compared to standard inscriptions.

Advice from an Experienced Glassmaker

Considering a personal engraving on your memorial jewellery? Here are two key factors to consider:

  1. The Quality of the Metal: Ensure your memorial glass jewellery is hallmarked and made from high-quality materials.
  2. The Quality of the Engraving: The engraving should be clear and easy to read, done either by a quality gravel-graph engraving machine or carefully by hand.

If you’re unsure what to engrave, it’s better to wait until you’re certain. You can always take your jewellery to an engraver or local jeweller later, as engravings are permanent.


Thank you for reading. You should now have a better understanding of what to look for when getting your memorial glass jewellery engraved. While it’s a specialized service, some companies do offer it. Just ensure the materials and engraving quality meet your expectations.
