Personalised Jewellery Secrets: What to Get Engraved on Jewellery

Personalised jewellery is great - it's personal, it's significant, and it's unique. And, with the ability to customise your favourite piece of jewellery with any message, design or motif, you have the creative freedom to do whatever you like!

But with so many designs to choose from, how do you decide on what to get engraved on jewellery? In this guide, we've compiled a selection of engravable jewellery secrets, allowing you to figure out exactly what to get on your chosen piece.

What to Get Engraved on Jewellery

With such a wealth of things to choose from when it comes to engraved jewellery, it can be difficult to know where to start. From quotes and meaningful messages to simple symbols and motifs, the options are virtually limitless.

Here at Monica Vinader, our engravable pieces of jewellery are available in a variety of finishes and styles, so you can easily find the perfect item for your engraved message or motif.

Read on to discover some engraving ideas that will get your creative juices flowing.


From zodiac signs to fun emojis, symbols can range from sentimental and mythical to playful and entertaining. Symbols are a great idea for engraved jewellery as they can be as small or large as you like, and they add a slight personal touch without going too overboard.

Whether you choose something cute, romantic or spiritual, there are plenty of symbols to choose from that will make your chosen piece of jewellery truly your own. Another option is to have two identical symbol pieces created - one for you to keep and one to give to a close friend or loved one.


Alphabet jewellery, or jewellery engraved with initials, has been a popular trend for a while now and it's a lovely way to personalise a gift for a friend or loved ones. Initialled jewellery is also a great gift to buy for yourself for a contemporary yet timeless addition to your outfit.

You could opt for a necklace or perhaps a bracelet with your initials or the initials of a loved one. Or maybe you could include the initials of you and your partner as a meaningful present for Valentine's Day or for an anniversary.


Engraving jewellery with numbers that signify a date or age is a wonderful way to commemorate an occasion. Whether it's a significant birthday or special anniversary, getting a special number or date engraved will help to remember it for the rest of your life.


Messages or quotes are a popular engraving option; they tend to have the most meaning behind them, adding further significance to the jewellery piece.

Engraved pieces with a sentimental message or a meaningful quote make a wonderful gift that can be treasured for a lifetime and even passed onto future generations. Maybe you could include the lyrics to their favourite song, or perhaps you could include a line from their favourite book or poem. To step this up a notch, you could get two pieces of jewellery engraved with different parts of a quote. Once the jewellery is in line, the quote will be complete.

Drawings and Doodles

You may not have thought that doodles or drawings could be an option for engravable jewellery, but here at Monica Vinader, we offer the option of including hand-drawn designs on our jewellery pieces for added creativity.

From a hand-written love note from your partner to a drawing that your child has done, there are many options to pick from for a unique piece of jewellery that no-one else will have. We particularly love the idea of incorporating constellations into your designs - making your chosen piece completely unique to your birth date or favourite constellation.

There's something about having a sketch or doodle that means the world to you encapsulated onto jewellery that makes the piece even more personal and cherished.
