HANDWRITING STYLES, HOW ARE THEY DIFFERENT?

RECESSED HANDWRITING
The handwriting is inscribed into the surface of the metal. The recessed handwriting has a crisp and clean appearance. It is a classic and timeless look. Some customers prefer the recessed handwriting because it is easy to read. Recessed handwriting can endure wear over time. 

RAISED HANDWRITING
The handwriting sits above the surface of the metal. The handwriting and background can have a bit of an organic or worn appearance. The raised style has an artistic and contemporary look. Some customers like the raised handwriting because of the tactile aspect. Because the handwriting is raised, it will experience more wear. Please see our recommendations below.


HANDWRITING STYLES, RECOMMENDATIONS
Any design on the surface of any jewelry will experience scratching and wear over time.

NECKLACES
Both recessed and raised handwriting work equally well on necklaces. If you are especially interested in jewelry with the raised handwriting, a necklace is the best choice.

BRACELETS
If you are planning on wearing your bracelet everyday, or if you are hard on your jewelry, we recommend the recessed handwriting.

If you'll be wearing your bracelet for special occasions, or you wear your jewelry with care, the raised handwriting is a unique choice.

RINGS
Rings experience a lot of wear. Because of this, we only offer recessed handwriting on rings. We will only make rings with raised handwriting by special request.

KEY CHAINS
Key chains experience a lot of wear while they tumble around in purses and pockets; therefore, we strongly recommend recessed handwriting. If your key chain will be kept on a key ring holder, or used as a decorative ornament, the raised handwriting is a great option. Raised handwriting is offered by special request.
