Engravers Guild gifts are designed to last a lifetime. We have always said that one of the beauties of an engraving, is that it makes an indelible impression that can capture a moment.
If ever there was any doubt to our claim, then read the story this week about a set of engravings from the Ice Age.
At a site in Jersey, engraved fragments have been unearthed which are estimated to date back 14,000 years. If so, it would be the oldest known art in the UK.
So when you next choose to give an engraved gift, take time over what you write – it could still be around in 14,000 years from now.
