Is it ok to engrave a year date on a blank sterling Christmas bell or best to leave them blank?
I am buying my son one sterling silver bell a year for Christmas in the hopes that he will have a nice collection when he is older. Some of the bells are dated Christmas bells from the manufacturer such as Reed and Barton, but some are older bells or dinner bells and not engraved at all. As far as a collecting standpoint goes...is it better to leave them blank or could I have the missing dates engraved on those that are blank? Am I better off to stick to manufacturers collections that are dated or is it okay to have variety in the collection? Thank you!
it is appropriate to engrave the date. In my opinion the value is not reduced and sentimental value is enhansed.
Engraving on a sterling silver ornament is your choice. Thanks for commenting.
Yes it is possible...
For this you have to use laser etching machine or engraving machine for it...
The needham-laser works on this type of producing the machines.
