Seal Engraving

Seal engraving can be traced back to Ancient China and Eastern Asia and was introduced to the Western world in the 12th century. Wax seals have been used for centuries to denote authenticity, just like a signature. Once confined to monarchs, bishops and aristocrats, seals became more widespread with the passage of time.

A seal typically consists of a heraldic crest which is engraved onto a signet ring using the ancient craft of intaglio. Seals are crafted by making a counter-relief (reverse), and then engraving onto gold, platinum or gemstone. This produces an image in relief (positive) when an impression is taken.

This type of engraving requires a specialist craftsman as it is always engraved in reverse and is much deeper than traditional hand engraving, often involving third and fourth dimensions with fine detailing. We send all of our seal engraving to a specialist as this is an incredibly niche area of engraving.

W. E. Clark & Son possess some rare books of heraldry and we would be delighted to help if you need assistance in finding your family crest. We also have a fine collection of signet rings in gold silver and platinum. Heraldic rings make a truly meaningful gift.

Seal engraving prices start from £275.00
