Personalized Photo Engraved Jewelry PENDANTS and TAGS on 9k, 14k and 18k white or yellow gold, silver, stainless steel or rhodium plated items.

State-of-the-art Techniques Behind Photo Engraved Jewelry

At Face 2 Face Photo Engraving the techniques involve a high-tech process that converts your photographs into engraved images in solid gold, silver, stainless steel or other metals.

Step One

Precision Engraved Photo Jewelry Starts with Transforming the Image

It all begins with high definition equipment to digitally enhance the pictures that will be engraved with a dot by dot technique.

Skilled technicians manually work with each picture, first cropping them to fit onto the chosen jewelry item and then working with the image’s shapes and the light and dark areas to create contrast and provide the right amount of depth so the engraving will stand out once etched into the metal surface.

Step Two

High-Tech Picture Engraved Jewelry Software

The exact depth of each piece of custom photo engraved jewelry will depend on the metal chosen.

Once the image has been digitally prepared, it must then be further enhanced and transformed into a high definition grey-scale piece of artwork.

Specialized software reads white, grey and black in different ways to creates dots that will represent each area as follows:

  1. White becomes a deep point {or dot}.
  2. Black doesn’t receive a point.
  3. Grey gets a soft dot.

Step Three

Diamond Head Equipment for Personalized Engraved Jewelry Quality

Once the transformation has been completed, the image is sent to a precision diamond-head engraving machine that uses approximately 8000 dots {points} to engrave an average sized pendant with a detailed likeness of the picture.

Step Four

Quality Inspection of Custom Engraved Jewelry Items

The photo engraved jewelry is inspected manually to ensure a high quality final product.

Only after careful inspection is the piece packaged and shipped by FedEx Express or DHL International.

Beware of Cheap Engraved Jewelry by Impact Printing

Fine precision quality cannot be achieved by impact printing.

Genuine photo engraved jewelry will provide a meticulously sculpted image in gold, silver or other metals. The results of high quality engraving are outstanding.

Top Quality Engraved Photo Jewelry Requires:

  • high-tech digital equipment
  • specialized software
  • state-of-the-art diamond engraving machines
  • technicians with an artistic eye and attention to detail

Example of Photo Engraved Silver Jewelry by Face 2 Face

  • Rectangle Sterling Silver Pendant

Photo Engraved Silver Jewelry {925 sterling silver} in a pendant style piece, measuring 14 x 20, costs $35 and includes the pendant and engraving one face.

The cost to add a second face is $9.50. Photo engraving can also be done on the back side for an additional $12.50 and text may also be added for $3.50 per line.

Example of Gold Engraved Jewelry by Face 2 Face

  • Oval, Round, Square or Heart – 18k Gold Pendant

High-end engraved photo jewelry on solid 18k gold pendants, with a lifetime guarantee, cost between $450 and $460, and includes expertly engraving one face.

Additional faces as well as text on the backside cost the same as when done on silver pendants.

Personalized Photo Engraved Jewelry Boxes

  • One of the most unique personalized items that Face 2 Face offers is the collection of heat-shaped engraved jewelry boxes made from chrome with brass bases. They measure 110x107x45 mm and costs $55 each. The price includes the box and engraving one face.

Extra faces and text engraving is available for $9.50 per face and $3.50 per line of text.

Picture Engraved Jewelry for Men and Unique Gift Ideas

Ideas for engraved mens jewelry include:

  1. stainless steel pendants and military tags
  2. father’s day special sets such as photo engraved card holders, travel clocks, pill boxes, key rings and chrome Zippo lighters
  3. chrome Flash USB Discs with 2Gb of space and a photo engraving on the front for as little as $50.

Consider another of the latest pieces of unique engraved jewelry for men: it doesn’t have a face, but instead, a set of footprints on a pair of silver cufflinks. Photo engraved mens jewelry doesn’t get better than this funky Square Sterling Silver Cufflink Set. They measure 20x20mm and have a set of engraved footprints on each. The cost: $115/pair, which includes the cufflinks and precision engraving of one image.

Custom Engraved Jewelry for Women

Some of the cutest items in the Face 2 Face collections are found in the series of engraved jewelry for MOMS.

Choose a sun-shaped pendant or a heart, oval, rectangle, square or other shape, and have baby’s picture etched in silver, gold or stainless steel.

The pieces of engraved jewelry for moms that offer the best overall value are the pendants in SILVER such as the Sun Pendant that’s 925 sterling silver, measures 22x22mm, and includes one engraved baby face for $48.

If you’re wondering how First Impressions gets the fingerprint to create your custom jewelry, here’s how:

There are two ways:

  1. Once you’ve made your personalized choices using the Custom Configurator, you’ll be sent a “no-mess Print Pack”. Then, using the materials provided you can follow instructions and capture the baby or adult fingerprints and send them to First Impressions. Once the prints arrive, it usually takes about a week for your custom fingerprint jewelry to be crafted.
  2. If you already have high quality prints, be they of a hand, foot or a finger, you can scan them {at least 600 dpi resolution} and email them to First Impressions along with your order.

See the “no-mess Print Pack” in the following video {courtesy of Jeffrey Brandt}:

Misspelled Jewellry Discoveries

Gold and silver jewelry from international dealers; fashion and costume jewellry shops in China, Bangkok, India, Eastern Europe, Israel, Spain, Italy, France (to mention only a few), as well as gemstone and pearl dealers around the world who offer discounts and have unique designs, may not use English as a main language, and yet their jewelry or jewellery or even jewellry (however they may erroneously spell it) is well worth investigating. And that’s exactly what we’ve done and found some fun results which we share. What happens when a main word of a promotion is misspelled? See for yourself what we’ve discovered:

Jewish Jewellry

Gorgeous jewelry made in Israel, like the star of David pendant, a gold menorah studded with rubies, and a delicate bangle bracelet with a single ruby – all handmade in Israel – that’s some of what can be found. We stumbled upon beautiful pendants with the Shema, which as I have come to understand (and those reading this probably already know) is a statement of devotion toward one true God, which is to be reaffirmed both at night and in the morning. The pendant is inscribed with the words: Love The Lord Your God, with one side in English and the other in Hebrew. Another beautifully crafted item in this collection is the Shema Mezuzah case in pewter.

Another discovery, in the Judaic jewelry collections (spelled a few different ways) was a gorgeous piece that’s not your average pendant: a breastplate crafted in sterling silver with a series of multicolored faux gems. Very striking for those who need a replica of the breastplates worn by the high priests in the ancient temple.

If a Hebrew wedding ring (engraved or sculpted) is what you’ve been searching for, then perhaps it’s time to spell jewelry incorrectly (as jewellry) and find the best solid gold ladies and mens bands online. Gold and silver sterling silver jewellry and bridal sets from Israel are available through the shop called Jewish Jewellry and also the adjacent store called Judaic.

Chinese Replica Wholesale Jewellry

Now we find ourselves in Asian…..and I think we’ve just bumped into some fake luxury Chanel copies, because Ceramic Rings Jewellry doesn’t seem like a mistake the real Chanel marketing department is likely to make. This is a very funny place to buy designer replicas because while the cheap rings are priced wholesale at about $49 each, their free shipping offer doesn’t come into effect unless you spend $999. However, it’s possible that if you buy a little faux designer silver jewellry that mimics Tiffany, Armani, Bvlgari, D&G, Dior and Gucci (and while you’re at it you through in a few really cheap replicated belts and imitation Hermes and Louis Vuitton Jewellery pieces), you might make up the total required.

By the way, this strange online shop, which has replicated almost every top European designer (albeit in a Chinese factory), is called Mirror Brands (which is strangely appropriate), and I’m sure it’s not attempting to cut into the profit of the genuine designer articles because it’s obvious the product lines are replicas. It might be a place to spend $1,000 if you need cheap designer jewelry, handbags and belts (copies anyway), but just be careful what brands you order, because speaking of misspelling things….check out D&G versus the Asian interpretation: D&C!

Silver Jewellry UK

I can’t explain why Zoo Jewellery in the UK (with very elegant stores in Salisbury, Winchester and Worthing, and who carry a beautiful array of high quality silver jewellery from all over the world), appear under misspelled jewellry stores, but they do….and what a pleasant surprise to find Celtic, ethnic and unique contemporary gemstone rings and jewellery that are absolutely striking! They even carry a collection of delicate Mackintosh Silver that replicated the sleek clean lines and gentle curves of the Charles Mackintosh styles.

HKTDC Hong Kong International Jewellery Show

There are even more things that can be discovered through misspelling and some are really hot news items, like: the Hong Kong International Jewellery Show which is the third biggest jewelry fair in the entire world with all the top designers and buyers from haute couture to gemstone dealers and artists and artisans. The next fair is not that far off, to be held on March 4th – 8th 2011 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. It may be a few months away, but for those jewellry stores and buyers who are planning their coming year’s collections and for those jewellry designers and exhibitors who will present their newest creations, it’s not a lot of time to prepare and plan. If you wish to attend the Exhibition as a visitor or register as an exhibitor, please visit the Hong Kong Trade Development Council – Exhibitions Department to register in advance.

It’s expected that the best Asian pearl jewelry, international gemstone, silver and gold traders, as well as those in specialized boutiques, will have similar, if not better exhibits than in 2010. There were (in 2010) areas for the World of Glamour, Hall of Fame and also the Hall of Nature where diamonds and pearls were showcased. There was also the Hall of Antique & Vintage Jewellery (which naturally with all the vintage and retro fashion we’re seeing) may be included again next year. The best way to know what’s hot is to be in Hong Kong in March!

Wholesale Costume Jewellry

If you’re looking for a new supplier of handmade jewellry or even unusual designs from around the world (and perhaps have exhausted the large manufacturers who know how to spell correctly), it’s worth a search for misspelled words because even Tradekey, one of the largest business to business directories of manufacturers (with over 3000000 importers & exporters) have been known to use the term “jewellry manufacturers” instead of the more correct spellings.

We discovered, through our misspelling search that there were some excellent wholesalers listed such as Tiptribe, and Sistertrade Co.(who specialize in Tiffany replicas) and lots of other Asian suppliers who use different ways to spell things although their products are on par with the better spelled ones.

Remember that spelling to many Chinese and Asian companies is not necessarily synonymous with low quality products. Why? It has to do with the Romanization or translation of words from “characters” to letters. In Mandarin Chinese (used by many companies in both Mainland China and Taiwan), the Romanized versions of Chinese characters are not standardized, which means that the spelling of very common words (even their own cities), may be very different depending on which Romanization system is employed.

A Chinese or Taiwanese manufacturer may not realize that in the West, the spelling of product or as another simpler example, one of their own city names such as Taipei (also Taibei, Daibei), will not appear to be the same city to a westerner, although to anyone in Taiwan it’s the name of the capital city no matter how its spelled; since it’s not in characters (and therefore incorrect anyway), it simply doesn’t matter.

It’s very common for the same word to be Romanized in three or four (or more) different ways, therefore making spelling an insignificant issue to a manufacturer who wishes to export his products to a Western buyer. The supplier may very well be making a wonderful set of affordable bridal jewellry without having any idea that the misspelled word in a B to B directory is costing him sales.
