How is Laser Engraving Different from Traditional Engraving?
In a traditional engraving, the personal message gets etched or carved into the surface of the item. With a laser engrav- ing, a laser actually burns the personal message on to the surface. Because of this difference, the more accurate term would be “laser marking”. However, most people refer to it as laser engraving and the name has stuck.

Will a Laser Engraving Scratch Off?
Laser engraving can be done on any metal. The durability of an engraving, done on the outside of the ring, depends on the durability of the metal itself. On softer metals like gold, the ring can get scratched and the engraving will wear away over time. However, on hard metals like tungsten, the engraving will not wear away. Currently, we only do laser engraving on the inside of our rings. Laser engravings on the inside of the ring will not wear away no matter what metal you choose, as long as you wear the ring on your finger. Your skin, because it is not tougher than the metal, will not wear away the laser engraving.

Are Laser Engravings Easier to Read than Regular Engravings?
Yes, laser engravings tend to be easier to read because the laser burns the metal, turning it darker, so it stands out more. Traditional engravings are carved into a ring, and it is the depth of the engraving that makes it readable.
