The engraving of a signet ring is an ancient craft. An engraving often consists of a family crest or monogram (often initials). A coat of arms is normally engraved in mirror image so it is displayed correctly when the seal is pressed into sealing wax. A monogram is engraved by default in "reading style" (non-mirror image), so that the letters are readable when the ring in worn.

Depending on the material the engraver requires a different specialization and there are other techniques involved for different materials. Some engravers are specialized in engraving in seal stones and gems, while others are experts in metal engraving. The gem engraver employs small cutter tools with diamond powder, to carry out highly precise fine grinding in the stone seal. The metal engraver gushes very delicately the coat of arms in the precious metal. Both types of engravers have to work very precisely in order to make a real work of art of the signet ring.
