Engraving the ‘word’ in ‘sword’

One of the beauties of engraved cufflinks, an engraved necklace or an engraved bracelet is that the engraving can be unbeknown to everyone apart from the wearer. It’s the personal finish that makes it special.

So at Engravers Guild, we have to appreciate the efforts that Batman Vs Superman director, Zack Snyder, went to with his engraving.

Although almost no one in the audience would know, Wonder Woman’s sword bears an engraved inscription born from the mythologist Joseph Campbell’s book Goddesses: Mystery of the Feminine Divine.

The engraving is so bespoke, that a language was even developed to keep the authenticity of Wonder Woman’s origins.

In the despatch centre at Engravers Guild, we’re often impressed by the originality some people take to their engraved gifts – but we’re still waiting to see one feature an entirely new language!
