Engraving the ‘word’ in ‘sword’

One of the pleasures of engraved cufflinks, engraved bracelets or engraved necklaces is that the inscription is often completely unbeknown to everyone but the wearer. It’s the individual and personal connection that makes it special.

At Engravers Guild, we have to appreciate the evidence of this sentiment in Batman Vs Superman, and the director’s commissioning of an engraving on Wonder Woman’s sword.

Although it would have gone completely unnoticed by the audience, the sword featured an engraving which was inspired by a phrase from the mythologist Joseph Campbell’s book Goddesses: Mystery of the Feminine Divine.

Moreover, to keep the authenticity of Wonder Woman’s heritage, an entirely unique language was developed just for the engraving.

At the despatch centre for Engravers Guild, we are often impressed by the originality some people bring to their engraved gifts, but first prize this week certainly goes to Mr Zack Snyder.
