Seal engraving or sight engraving?

Most people like to have their crests and coats of arms seal engraved on their signet rings so that when you press it into wax you can see the detail of the engraving. However, if you desire a signet ring where you can see your family name and other lettering without them being in reverse, then sight engraving might just be the thing for you. I have put an example for you to see – the¬†family name Woodley is clear to the eye and the motto which translates as ‘to be wise and silent’ is a wonderful one to accompany the three owls.
