Over the past decade, laser engraving machines have revolutionized the jewelry industry. We see a constant increase in jewelry businesses that utilizing laser technology to offer bespoke and customized items for their customers. This article explores the benefits of laser technology and shows you some of the main advantages compared to traditional engraving methods.
Foremost, a single laser system can engrave multiple surfaces.

In fact, a fiber laser machine can also engrave non-metal surfaces, such as acrylic, plastic and wood.
The other benefit for jewelers is the application for individualizing and personalizeing different shaped items. So, whether you’re looking to engrave rings, bracelets, necklaces or watches; it can all be done with the same machine! The only restriction is the size of your machine’s marking area. Although that is typically not a concern, as jewelry items tend to be small in size.
You can create virtually any design, no matter how complex, and have it successfully engraved onto your jewelry item. Even the smallest of designs remains legible when marked with a laser beam.
Thanks to its versatility, Jewelry designers use the laser machine for countless applications. Whether it’s engraving a photo onto a pendant; adding a unique pattern to a ring; branding jewelry with a logo for corporate events; or personalizing a necklace with a heart-warming message – the possibilities are endless.
The fiber laser machine uses a non-contact marking method. Essentially, a laser beam is directed onto the item’s surface and produces a mark by removing the material. As a result, there is no contact between the laser equipment and the jewelry item.
Since there is no contact during the engraving process. The jewelry is never compromised with engraved by fiber laser machine. Additionally, the machine doesn’t have moving parts, which can wear down over time and require replacement.
