Personalised Crystal Gifts are stunning for all occasions. Are you considering purchasing one of our stunning crystal gifts? This article explains how our coats of arms are replicated on each of our sparkling crystal gifts.

 

The artwork

To begin designing personalised crystal gifts, customers enter their choice of surname in our name search facility. Then they can check if we have the name on our database. More than a million names are available, and each has its associated coat of arms. This artwork is the earliest known coat of arms related to a bearer of the name. Many coats of arms have intricate symbolism, while others are simpler in style. Each coat of arms looks stylish when recreated on your choice of personalised crystal gift.

 

Personalised crystal gifts available

We have three distinctive sets to choose from which can be viewed from the collections on our crystal page. Each crystal collection includes wine glasses, champagne flutes, hi-ball glasses, and whisky tumblers. Your choices are as follows:

 

Mayfair collection

This lovely collection perfectly combines a modern style with a traditional diamond-cut design, with a centralised engraving panel. Shop Mayfair now.

 

 

Verona collection

A more modern style with a distinctive wave pattern at the base, and plenty of room for your engraved coat of arms and personalised message. Shop Verona now.

 

 

Blenheim collection

 

This is a stunning range, also incorporating the option of brandy glasses and a decanter. Our most exclusive range, this has a high lead content, making for a heavier feeling in the hand. Shop Blenheim now.

 

 

It’s a lovely idea to start a collection for yourself or a loved one. For example, a wedding gift can be a perfect opportunity to start a collection of personalised crystal to build over the years to come.

 

Expertise

We have sourced top quality products from a trusted UK supplier, who pride themselves on attention to detail. They have been in business for 35 years, so they really know their stuff! We selected this supplier, partly because they are a family-owned business like ours, but also because their stated aim is to exceed quality expectations all the time. We like this approach! When we receive your order, your artwork is sent to these specialist suppliers for preparation. This will vary depending on the crystal gift that you have chosen (see below).

The process

If you have selected any of our stunning range of glasses, then the process used will be ‘Sandblast Engraving’. This is a permanent decoration process that gives a frosted finish with the coat of arms and optional wording etched into the surface of the glass or crystal. This ensures clarity of finish, and your chosen heraldry will be the centrepiece of your crystal gift.

 

If you have selected one of our lovely glass plaques or our scented candle then the technique will be full colour digital printing, which allows a vibrant recreation of a full colour coat of arms and your chosen wording.

 

Optional engraving

Engrave your crystal gifts can be engraved with a personal message such as a birth date or congratulatory message. You can therefore create a truly unique piece of work to be treasure and cherish for years to come. In addition to the coat of arms, this creates a distinctive and original piece, that is unique to your own personal requirements. Stuck for a message to engrave?

Gift boxes

Most of our crystal gifts comes in a stunning satin-lined presentation box, which makes them the perfect gifts for special occasions. We pack these gift boxes in a larger box, to ensure safety of your parcel in transit.
